Fat Baby Friday

Today was Alvie’s 2 week doctor appointment. He weighed 9.8 lbs – which is 1.8 lbs over birth weight, and 2 lbs more than he weighed two weeks ago. He is an eating champ! And it turns out that these boobs are not just for show! Go us!

Check out my chubby baby – he’s got the cutest little fat rolls on his arms and legs.

Tomorrow morning, we are headed out for our first big trip. I hate flying with a fiery passion, and knowing that I have to do it while also toting an infant makes me nervous. At least the architect will be with us tomorrow – flying back we’ll be on our own. I really need to perfect my Moby Wrapping by then.

I definitely need to pack, too – which should be interesting. I hope I don’t forget something important. Like the baby – or the car seat. Or my cell phone charger. 🙂

 

Also – how did everyone in Mystic Falls suddenly learn the Charleston? Do most teenagers just know that dance? Did I go to a bad school? And how come Damon didn’t take off his shirt even once last night? I totes have a Vampire Diaries addiction…probably partially because of this:

I usually go for the blond vamps, but I make an exception for Damon.

  2. Damon is HOT!! Good luck on flying w/ baby.

  3. You’ll be a pro in no time at the moby I have no doubts.

    Alvie is just soooooo stinkin cute. So glad he’s doing well and that you are too.

    Safe travels i’ll be thinking about you guys.

    PS Thanks, I’m hooked on the Vampire Diaries BTW =)

  4. Let me know how it goes- we’re doing a cross country flight to Seattle next month and I’m dreading it. I know, I know. She’ll be 6 months old. I’m just terrified of being that asshole with the crying baby. If it makes you feel any less nervous, I’ve heard it is much easier to fly with a young baby than an older one, because they’ll usually sleep the whole time. Good luck!
