An American Idol to be proud of

An "American Idol" we can all be proud of. And not just because I am currently living in Arkansas. But instead because he is a stand up individual!

11 weeks old- rollin rollin rollin

Well it was bound to happen sometime… Owen hit a milestone today and I missed it!!!

I had him on his stomach today for some “tummy time”. He was lifting his head up so incredibly well that I wanted to go grab the video camera to catch it.

So I walked out of the room for literally 4 seconds and when I walked back in he was laying on his back.

The baby rolled over, for the first time, and I missed it. So of course I immediately started praising him and I tried to get him to do it again.

No such luck.

Oh well. Maybe next time.

Piper loves her baby.


We are moving in 1 week. Ahh! We will drive Wednesday and Thursday, close on the house on Friday, and John will return to Little Rock for an uncertain amount of time on Sunday.

Gotta love military timing!

Owen had a great week. We started putting him on his side to sleep to get rid of that flat head he has going on. Apparently he LOVES to sleep on his side because he slept 11 hours straight the first night and 10 hours straight last night. HOLY COW!

Some pictures

Here are some pictures that I have just not gotten time to post yet!

Owen and Evan. Owen is 7 weeks and Evan is 11 weeks.


Pictures from a photo shoot with Jamie. I am so pleased with how these turned out!

Owen is doing great! He is currently 9 1/2 weeks old. He sleeps through the night already, only getting up once for about 20 minutes to eat (around 3 or 4am).

Right now I am working with him on his eating schedule. He has been eating every 2 hours during the day which is exhausting for both he and I. Because he is eating so often, he was not getting proper naps in there and not getting full feedings- more like snacking.

So yesterday I started working on his schedule and it went GREAT!!! It was the best day we have had yet! I got him to eat every 2 hours and 15 minutes for 3 times, then every 3 hours for the rest. GREAT!!!!!

This morning so far he has gone 2.5 hours. He is sound asleep in his pack and play so hooray! I am sure he will wake up on his own, but if not, i will get him up after 3 hours to eat and then start the process over again (eat, play for an hour and 15 minutes, nap).

I have been playing around with the way that Owen naps because he is getting a flat head. It is not too concerning right now, but our pedi did mention it and sometimes it can result in the baby needing to wear a helmet (YIKES!) so I am going to do everything I can to help it out. I had him nap in different positions yesterday while I was in the room with him (on his belly, on his left side, and on his right side) so hopefully that will help. At night I will still put him on his back of course.

We are getting ready for our big move to North Carolina at the end of the month. I started going through some of my clothes and I will be donating a bunch. I still have clothes from 8-10 years ago around! haha. I want our new house to be as clutter free as possible and one great place to start is clothes!

I hope everyone is having a great week!
