Levi is 3 Months Old!

Levi is 3 months old! 

He's been the center of attention in our house since his arrival. His big sisters love to hold him and he gets about a million kisses a day from all of us. 

I've included all of his milestone pictures here so you can get a sense of how much he's grown! 

(stickers are from Etsy store, Crafts by Thaowie)

At his two month appointment he was 24 inches and 12.8 lbs. He doesn't have another appointment until 4 months so I guess we won't know his stats for this month. But he is filling out for sure! He is drinking 3 ounces a feeding and wearing 3 months outfits. He is in size 2 diapers. 

He is doing great with breast feeding. It probably has been one of my best decisions for sure. I didn't realize how much I would enjoy it. I love that bonding time we have together! 

We heard him laugh for the first time the other day! It was the cutest little sound ever! He follows with his eyes and is constantly smiling. 

Overall he is such a happy baby. He rarely cries.

He sleeps great. He usually goes down around 8:00 and sleeps until about 12-1 for a feeding. Then gets up again around 4-5. 

He likes to look in the mirror at his reflection and his favorite position is being held over your shoulder. 

He has begun to drool but no signs of teeth. 

He is the light our lives and we can' t wait for more milestones! We love our little Levi man!

Owlet Smart Sock

Parenting and worrying come hand in hand I think. The minute your little one enters the world they are fully dependent on you. It’s a big job to fill and there is so much to think about.
I am a mom to Ava (5), Lily (4) and Levi (2 months).  I remember when I first became a mom to Ava I was always worried about everything. We co-slept for a while, but once we transferred her to the crib I was constantly worried about being away from her at night in case something went wrong. Video monitors were new when she was born and I remember I would stalk the screen so I could see her chest rise and fall or hear her breathing. I was the same way when Lily was born.
Fast forward to Levi and I have to tell you there is no more stalking of the video monitor. I was introduced to the Owlet Smart Sock. This device is designed to alert you if your baby stops breathing. It uses the same technology hospitals use to monitor oxygen levels and heart rates.

The sock fits securely on Levi and comes in a few different sizes to provide the perfect fit. It doesn’t seem to bother him at night at all.
I was unsure at first about getting the sock set up correctly but I watched very helpful videos and read the simple instructions and it made the process super easy.

I love the fact there is an app on your phone that can show Levi’s vitals as well as on the base station.  
It’s so reassuring to know this simple sock can put parents’ minds at ease. Everyone can sleep soundly. I am an overly anxious person in general and so I’m so thankful for this device. If you are like me and want that extra peace of mind the Owlet monitor is for you. I promise you won’t regret it!

It's Friday, I'm in Love

It's Friday and I'm in love with the following. It's the after Christmas itch for things I probably don't need but want! Maybe I'll treat myself for Valentine's Day or early birthday present!

First Week Back Fashion

Well guys, I survived my first week back at work coming off maternity leave. I've been away for about 10 weeks. During my time at home I've mostly been in yoga pants and sweat shirts. Toward the end I was venturing out of the house more and dressing up but I still wasn't accessorizing like pre-maternity leave.

2015 Year in Review

I don't know about you, but for me, 2015 flew by. It's New Year's Eve and I've been reflecting on what a year it's been for me! Lots of new memories were made and I'd like to share them with you! 

1. Our first born, Ava, turned 5 years old! She's just the sweetest and has grown like a weed this year! We love her more and more with each day! 

2. I turned 31 and for my birthday, I went to Sweden! It was my first stamp on my passport and first trip out of the country! I had a great time. I can't wait for that second stamp to add for my next trip! 

3. We attended lots of weddings this year. Ava was a flower girl for three weddings and Lily was for two! They had so much fun! We traveled to Annapolis, MD and Atlanta, GA for another. We attended two here at home for our neighbors (Jill & Rob) and my best friend Mandy & Daniel! Lots of love-filled memories! 

4. In honor of my mom, we went up to D.C. to see the Cherry Blossom Festival. It was crazy hectic but also very beautiful. My mom would have loved it. 

5. We found out we were pregnant in March and were so excited! We announced it on mother's day! On Father's day, we found out we were expecting our first little boy! 

6. Ava was in her first recital. They performed a cute Mickey Mouse and birthday cake compilation. She was so cute dressed up in her costume and she did great during her performance, wasn't shy at all! We were very proud of her! 

7. During the summer we made lots of trips to the pool and beach. We got together with friends and even took a small weekend trip to Amelia Island with Noah's cousins, Adam and Hannah. 

8. My best friends and my sister hosted a baby shower in anticipation of our little man's arrival. He was totally spoiled!

9. Ava lost her first tooth! Actually she lost a total of three this year! 

10. Lily visited the dentist for the first time. She did so much better than I would have hoped for! 

11. This fall we had a blast at the pumpkin patch and trick-or-treated with friends. Ava was a minion gal and Lily was a disney princess.

12. Ava entered kindergarten and Lily started pre-k! They both are flourishing at school!

13. Lily turned 4 years old! She is still a little fire cracker and cracks us up all the time. 

14. For Thanksgiving Noah's family all came down or up. We had a great time with everyone here to celebrate! 

15. For Christmas, we traveled to VA to spend it with friends and family. 

16. I think the most significant event of 2015 was the birth of our son, Levi Everett Cruzan. We are so in love with our buddy. The girls are constantly doting on him. He's already celebrated his first Thanksgiving and Christmas. He's been on a couple first road trips too! We are looking forward to more firsts in 2016.

I hope everyone has a fantastic 2016! I cant wait to see what it has in store for our family!
