Disney World and Calvin Turns 4 Months!

Just last month we were in Disney World sweating our butts off and having the TIME of our lives!

I went down for my annual Teachers Pay Teachers conference and when I heard it was in Disney this year I knew we HAD to go as a family! I was so excited for sweet Theo to see all the characters and go on rides and it was so worth it to pack up both kids and bring them along for the ride.

Here are some highlights from our trip:

Theo was honestly the definition of "the happiest kid on earth" and poor Calvin got his very first cold on the airplane and slept like crap for the first 2 nights making it very difficult to keep my eyes open during my conference. After the first 2 nights he started feeling better, coughing less, and sleeping more, THANK GOODNESS. He was our trooper because, well, he is only 3 months old at Disney... it was 100 degrees... and he had to stay in his stroller for like 85% of the 6 day trip. 

Speaking of that 3 month old....

He is now FOUR months old and has been smiling and giggling all the time!

Calvin Robert is Three Months!

Calvin, you are still sweet as pie!

Laid back
Quiet (unless hangry)

Those all still describe you and we are so thankful for that. 

On the whole you are a great sleeper (some nights given us 7-8 hours in a row). Although you will throw us for a loop and be super needy every once in a while. I guess you can have a pass.. since you're still a baby and all ;)

We are going on our first family vacation tomorrow and while I will inside a conference room for half of it, you will be exploring Disney World with your brother, dad, aunt TT, and Grammy! I will be joining in on the fun later in the week.

I have been busy packing over here and planning your dada's 30th birthday which is next month! So here is a little photo dump of your 3 month pictures:

and this is what your big bro has been up to:
pizza face, toy animals, and sand toys indoors.
Sums it up.

Calvin turns 2 months old!

You are such a little love who likes to be carted around in someone's arms so you don't miss out on any of the fun. This past month your sleep has been continuing to get better and better. You'll give us a 5.5 hour stretch, drink a quick bottle, and then give us another 4-5 hour stretch. You are cooing up a storm and love when people talk to you. 

You aren't the biggest fan of tummy time and will let out little yelps if we leave you there too long (who wouldn't really?!). If we flip you onto your back you will make all sorts of fun noises at the butterflies in your little activity garden. You are also pretty good at punching the animals that hang above your head.

You already think your big brother is the coolest thing going and smile every time he comes over to you. He loves to run over to wherever you're sitting and yell "Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeey Cal Cal!!!!" with a huge grin on his face. 

This past month you have met your Poppa, congratulated your aunt TT on graduating college, and watched your dada do all sorts of fun outdoor projects! This next month we will be enjoying some playdates with new friends that were just born and just relaxin' during the sweet summer before our trip to Disney!

Here are some photos of you, my love:

Big bro just hadddddd to be a part of the fun ;)

Calvin is one month old!


How have you only been our life for a month?! It feels like you've been here forever!
You are such a perfect fit into our little puzzle piece of a family. It seems to me that you may have your dad's laid back attitude about life, while your big bro may have gotten a little bit of drama from his mother.... woops!

You are so laid back and sweet I could just cuddle you all day! In fact, I did for the first two weeks of your life. I just want to hold you and smell you and take in every second of your little newborn life because already I have blinked and you are no longer a newborn. You are already changing into a little human and I can't wait to see you develop!

You are 11.2 lbs and 22 inches and you are growing like a weed! Keep it up big guy! You are sleeping 4-4.5 hours at night (hallelujah!) and your dada sleeps downstairs on the couch to take care of you because, well, he's amazing. Your mother does not do well without sleep and your dad is basically Superman. You'll learn that soon enough.

This past month you have met and been loved on by everyone in my family and you had a special visit from your Cha Cha! In this next month you will get a fun visit from your Papa too!

Here are a bunch of pictures of you, because I think you're adorable and your face cracks me up. Your older brother made crazy faces ALL day long. You tend to have the same look in your eyes all day no matter what is happening.

I can't wait to see how you've changed next month!!!
