Beckett :: Two Months

This big guy is 2 months old!
He has changed sooo much in the past month. I feel like that tiny, delicate newborn-ness is already starting to wear off. Sniff sniff. I think it's because he's such a big eater and is filling out nicely. I stinking love him.
Beck continues to be his daddy's little doppelganger. It amazes me sometimes. He just looks like a little man! In the past week and a half he has really started focusing in on us, tracking me across the room and hamming it up. We can get smiles pretty easily and I can't wait until I hear those first sweet little laughs. He is such a doll!
And as much as he looks like daddy, he looooves his mama. :) I'm not complaining.
This weekend we tried a bottle for the first time and he did great! Nothing like his sister (who straight up boycotted). I think it's because he takes a paci. And he just likes to eat.
His 2 month appointment is tomorrow, so I'll update his stats after that. Can't wait to see how much he's grown! He seems long to me and he has most definitely been gaining weight like a champ. I've already had to put away the newborn sleepers.

 We love you little buddy, and couldn't imagine our family without you!

Evie's Big Girl Room {A Gallery Wall}

Progress on Evie's room has been slow going. I have had ideas and plans since we moved in (last August!!), but then life happens and projects take time and things cost money and you get knocked up and your buddy craigslist forsakes you. Sigh.

But some progress has definitely been made, so I thought I would share a bit today. Is anyone even still reading this little blog?? I know I've been absent!

Here is the original amateur inspiration board I put together for her room:

I've stayed pretty true to the colors and feel of the board. Using that floral fabric to make her curtains definitely helped. I love how fun it is.
I actually had another gallery wall up across the room, above her dresser, for a while. But then I decided to hang a mirror over there instead. Not long after, I came across this awesome pic on Pinterest and fell in love. I think it's so cool and different than your typical gallery, and I love how they went all the way up to the ceiling. I would need to gather some more art to truly replicate it, but I'm loving things so far!  
Everything up there is a diy project of some kind... framed gift wrap, a diy mirror made from a charger, a framed brass butterfly (flea market find), some original art, etc. I just finished the two watercolors (in the gold frames) and I'm not totally satisfied with them, but I needed to get something up! So those will likely change, and I may add a few other tiny pieces to fill things in.
This Shakespeare quote is puuuuuurfect for my girl. :)

Hopefully I'll have more to share of her room soon!

Beckett :: One Month

Our boy is 1 month old already!

I'm pretty sure I said this with Evie, too, but it feels like he's always been with us. This sweet little nugget just fits seamlessly into our family. He has truly been a dream baby and I couldn't be more thankful! 

He is a great eater (and takes it very seriously), and is definitely filling out. I'm guessing he's right at 8 lbs by now. We exclusively nurse and he eats every 2 1/2 - 4 hours during the day and every 3-4 at night. He either falls asleep on me or goes right back into his Rock n Play during the night, so I really can't complain! Such a little love.

He's starting to stay awake longer during the day, which is fun. I think he is his daddy's twin at this point, but he is 100% a mama's boy and likes to be swaddled. :) Car rides are hit and miss, but overall pretty good!

 We are still getting used to being a family of four, and all that entails... but overall things are wonderful. Evie loves her baby brother and is so sweet with him.
