Happy 2 month Birthday!!

breastfeeding
So Braden is two months old today. Time goes so amazingly fast with a newborn. I'm so excited for when he starts to interact with us more in the coming months. Right now he smiles at us, mimics our facial expressions, and tries to talk with us by grunting and cooing. My heart is going to melt when he giggles at me for the first time.

I got my nursing pendant in the mail today. It's so beautiful. Now I need to find some nice beadwork to make a necklace worthy of it being on.

I was dared!

So this morning on my BBC due date board there was a funny thread double-dog daring us to take a picture of what we looked like "right then" No showering or making ourselves look pretty if we hadn't already. So I took one with my unbrushed hair, pj's and glasses. Oh and my dirty bathroom! Sexy *rolls eyes* But later I took a shower and showed that I clean up kinda nicely :)

Adorable

My baby is without a doubt the cutest baby in the entire world! Ahh the wonders of evolutionary genetics. Without it, nothing that cries and screams and poops this much would ever survive.

I love my husband :D

Braden was so cranky last night and this morning, he's usually such a good baby but the past few days he's been so upset! Brad took him last night at 2am and changed his diaper and held him while he calmed down. It was so super sweet to see the baby curled up on his daddy's chest. This morning Braden woke up super grumpy again so I got him out of bed so Brad could sleep more. When I come downstairs this is what I see...AAAWWWWW.... I love my husband :D

Braden's First "Friends"

A cute idea I stole from my December due date boards over on BBC. She's taking pictures of the things her baby loves to stare and smile and coo at and keeping them in her baby book. Well, I don't have a baby book, but I've got a blog damnit

So here are Braden's first friends. The book is on the shelf a foot away from the changing pad we keep next to our computers. It's one of Brad's old computer certification textbooks. Yes that right, we're starting him down the road to geekdom early! Diaper changes are a fun time for the little man, he'll sit and stare at this book for minutes at a time.

The other is the mobile above his swing. He absolutely LURVES these guys. He tries to talk to them I kid you not. I didn't know babies this young could be vocal on purpose but he grunts and coos up a storm at them. The monkey is Chai after our housecat that we call a trained monkey because he begs for treats, and the bird is Mr Tucan Sam after the cereal.

I <3 Mommy

Last night we went and bought Braden a few new outfits. One of them was a long sleeved onesie that says, "I <3 Mommy" Cute baby pictures

Over on the MDC boards there's a lady who's blog I was checking out. Her little son has the hair that I am SO hoping Braden ends up with after his little old man bald phase. Here's some pics of Brad when he was little so you can see that maybe I might get my wish.

Breastfeeding in public

Today was my first "real" NIP -Nurse in Public- experience. Sabbath let me practice a couple times at her knitting group and playdates, but today I nursed Braden while we were on post getting our new ID cards. I sat up front near the tv and nursed him for a good 30 mins. I even switched sides. Then later Brad had to get his prescription from the pharmacy so I nursed again, with people sitting directly across from me this time :D I didn't even get any dirty looks, lol.

Graphic Art

So lately one of the fun things I've been wasting all my time on is making little digital art images with the pictures I take of Braden. Taking pictures of a new baby is addicting, kind of like crack, but cuter.

I use Gimp, an opensource program that is almost as good as Photoshop; better if you take into account that hey it's free. I frequent a forum that has a few outstanding women that take the time to help out and give you a place to show off your work, the VIP Siggy School. That place has lots of links to free fonts and tutorials and supplies, all of which I've also linked. Check out the left hand side of the blog to see a slideshow of my stuff and a bunch of helpful links.

Good Morning
Love,
The Kitties




Yeah this is what I woke up to this morning. My smart ass of a husband was like, "Chai left you a present downstairs" and I had no idea what he was talking about. I come down and hello, my yarn is strewn all over the place! Miraculously, they didn't actually ruin the few rows I'd manage to stitch.
