3 months today!

My baby is 3 months old. Good god it's going fast, next month I will be able to give him some solids and I am really sad that that will be happening soon. He is a baby that is always smiling, he hardely ever cries unless he is hungry or wants attention.

As of right now Andrew is weighing at about 13 pounds. I'm not exactly sure how much he is now. Last time we checked was 2 weeks ago. I'm more than sure that he has added some pounds. He has gotten a lot better at pulling himself up when he has tummy time. I think we need to spend a little more time on it though to really master it.

He went to South Padre Island for the first time this month. We went to eat for some real sea food and we also went into a little store for bathing suits. Next month if everything goes to plan we will be going to schlitterbahn, and I'm sure he will love it, he seems to love the water.

He is now on Size 2 of diapers. He is just such a big boy. I kind of already knew that he would need size 2 at the end of his first month. He is also wearing size 3-6 months and I am more than sure he will be moving up to to 6-8 soon. My little guy is a big baby.

We are still breastfeeding and If your wondering if I have had my first public debut on nursing. I have:) It was on July 5th while watching the fireworks and again at a kiddie pool. I think I am getting the hang of it. I'm starting to feel more and more comfortable doing it. It is honestly less hassle than bottles.  I still hide a little especially around men but for the most part it's going very well. Another thing I need to point at is how supportive my family is. My dad especially, he is very reserved and I thought he was going to be uncomfortable but I like that he is o.k with it and he does not mind me nursing as long as I'm covered up, which of course I am going to do.I just needed to give him that credit.

He has gotten into a schedule. Usually Andrew wakes up at 7 am (on good days) and on the bad days he's up at 3 am. This past month was a really bad month of sleeping. Thankfully, he has been doing better when it comes to sleeping. For three days straight he was waking up every hour of the night. It was brutal on those nights. I was so frustrated and so sleepy.

He does not like when I pull his clothes over his head and he gets a little fussy when we leave the room. He likes to play from 4-7 with us. During the morning he will sleep and eat and repeat until 3.For whatever reason though for the past two days he is down to two naps during the day and he pretty much wakes up at night only when he is hungry then he goes right back to sleep.

Picture overload

This has been a great summer! I am honestly in denial that school will be starting soon. I am very very very not ready to send my baby to kindergarten. I just don't want her to go to school and be in a classroom filled with different personalities. I am scared that she not going to be able to stand up to for herself. I'm praying I get this job at a school so she can at least be close to me, and I won't have to worry so much.

I have an interview on Thursday and I am seriously just looking up all the question that they may ask. I am trying to remember all the key words in education lingo. So that's pretty much what I have been doing this week. I want this job so bad that it has just surrounded my mind lately. I don't know how I am going to take it if I don't get it. Probably cry, yeah that's it, I'll probably cry.

Megan has been having a great summer vacation, she has been going to the pool, San Antonio, and she has been going to parks. Megan went to San Antonio for two days and I really hate that she was gone that long. In fact I hated that Jaime and Megan were gone for that long. They went with his family and I stayed at home with Andrew. Andrew and I had a relaxing weekend just us, catching up on some Netflix movies and TV shows. Megan and Jaime went to Fiesta Texas, where Jaime did not take any photos. I just want to take note that I had told him to take a camera and he said that he didn't need it, that he was going to use his phone. Yeah, he didn't even use his phone to take pictures. Then I told him why he didn't buy me anything over there, and he said that he didn't take any cash, even though I asked him the day before if he needed cash and he said "no". Ugh!

Insta photos

We've been having some good days around here. I love when I have good days with my husband. Lots of laughs and caressing, it's so nice. Life gets in the way a lot but when we finally have time to enjoy each others company it really is worth all of the things we go through on a daily bases.

I am so excited I finally have these books. I finished the 2nd book about a year ago and I'm barely getting around to reading the last two. Lets just say it's getting even better. It's very mythically(is that a word?) and I am enjoying the book much more, I didn't think I would like those whole "mythical creatures" but it sure is well written.

We have taken the first step in getting a house. Unfortunately, we are getting cold feet again. I think our feet will be warm again when I finally get my job. I still have yet to get a call from someone. I do have an interview though for a second grade teacher at a school, but it's not until August. So I am going to have very little time to get everything together for at least the first week. I will be a busy bee when and if I do get the job.

An order of a good nights rest, please?

Look at this little cutie's face. You would never know he has been keeping his momma awake for most of the night. Honestly, I have not gotten a full nights rests. I'm considering giving him formula in the night time so that he is full for the rest of the night. However, this little man won't drink his whole bottle. I don't know if he is doing it on purpose;) or what, but Im not getting much of rest. So today we are going to do something different. I'm going to keep him awake from 3-8, maybe that will at least give me some time to sleep. Wish me luck for some sleep tonight.

A glimpse of our summer

Megan has been spending a good amount of time with my parents and they have been taking her places and of course buying her things.

Megan and I went to the zoo while the boys stayed at home and caught up with sleep. We had fun at the zoo, and really enjoyed the Dinosaur adventures at the zoo. It was felt real, it was creepy. The sound effects were just crazy and since we were the only ones inside the dinosaur exhibit, it was pretty scary. Those things really looked like they were going to come alive at any moment. Megan also has gone to the pool a few times. I mean this girl is having some fun.

 Some days we just stay at home and just hang out with these guys. These guys are definitely brother and sister thought. I do find some things the same and I think sometimes they may look alike.

4th of July was spent with my family. We played volley ball and popped some fireworks. It was so humid outside so I tried to leave Andrew with people who were inside for as long as possible. Megan was also inside because she was scared of all the fireworks. The quality of these pictures are terrible. I hate my phone sometimes.

Big Brother 16

Every summer the one thing I totally look forward to,other than the hot Texas sun, Is Big Brother. I never saw the show before I was married. Jaime was the one who introduced the show to me. Last year we said that we would get the live feeds next year. At first I was a bit hesitant about getting the live feeds this year but then I thought that we always say we are going to do something and then we flake out, so we changed it up. The live feeds have been our best friend. Jaime is a reality show kind of guy and I just like the drama to unfold in front of me when it come to this show. We are really enjoying ourselves with the live feeds. I have to say though that they really leave out a ton of stuff on the episodes.
