Weekend in Pictures: Cardinals & Grant's Farm

We had such a fun weekend! We had tickets to the Cardinals versus Royals game that was rained out back in early June so decided to stay an extra day and go to Grant's Farm. While it was super hot, we had a great time. The cardinals won, we got to visit with Uncle Scott & Aunt Julie, and we got to show Scout around St. Louis for his first time. Both boys did great and can't wait to do it again. Sawyer got to stay a little longer with Grandma & Grandpa and go to the beach at my Aunt Debbie's house in Hillsboro, MO. He had a blast!!
Here are the pictures from our weekend...

Scout // 1 Month

I am a couple days late but Scout turned one month on Friday, July 24. It has gone by way too fast already. To celebrate he got to go on his first road trip to St. Louis for a Cardinals vs. Royals game and Grant's Farm (blog post coming soon). He did awesome. Almost slept the whole way home too.

Here is how Sawyer stacked up when he was a month old, so similar it is scary:

Scout 1 Month stats

weight: 11 lbs. (at birth he was 8 lbs. 7 oz.)
length: 22 inches (at birth he was 21 inches)
clothing: still some newborn but can now wear 3 month too
diapers: just moved him from newborn to Size 1 last week
eating: breast milk, eating every 2-4 hours depending on how active he is. He feeds for about 10-15 minutes.
sleeping: about 4 hours at night and during the day around 2-3 hours at a time. Longest sleeping period was 6 hours.
other updates:  Jaundice is basically gone but can still see a little yellow in his eyes. He loves baths and tummy time. Mostly a happy boy, only gets cranky when he has gas or is hungry. He really loves the Baby Bjorn carrier and will sleep the whole time wearing it. He is so strong and already holding his head up. He hates when it is quiet and prefers loud noises and commotion (just like his brother).

Brother and Daddy had to get in on the photo shoot....

Scout // Newborn Photos

J Design Studios did it again! They were able to capture some super sweet photos of Scout, just like they did for Sawyer. (see Sawyer's photos here:

It was so hard for me to design his birth announcement because they were all so cute but here are a few of my favorites.

Scout // Week two

Just as every mom says, time sure does fly by. I can't believe we have had two weeks with our little man Scout. He is doing great and we are enjoying every day. He had his second week check-up yesterday which was my actual due date. His doctor was very happy with how well he is doing! I swear is the most smiley baby I have ever met. We love his little dimple! Sawyer is still doing great and is really a great helper. So far, we haven't seen any regression or acting out since becoming a big brother!
Woohoo, no shots today!

Scout two week stats

weight: 8 lbs. 10 oz. (at birth he was 8 lbs. 7 oz.) - 52 percentile
length: 21.25 inches (at birth he was 21 inches) - 83 percentile
head circumference: 14.57 inches (at birth he was 14 inches) - 83 percentile
clothing: newborn
eating: breast milk, eating every 3-4 hours
sleeping: about 20 hours a day
other updates:  His jaundice is almost gone, she said it is about at his bicep and up (it moves from feet to head) and still shows in his eyes but that could last for up to 4 weeks. His umbilical cord finally fell off so we can give him a normal bath now! Also since he is eating and having regular diapers, they said we can let him sleep longer. Most night he wants to sleep through the every 3 hour feeding rule, she said we can now even let him go up to 6 hours once per night. Yay!! We are strictly breast feeding again like I did with Sawyer, and I definitely have a huge supply! I have frozen probably around 25 bags...which is great for when I return back to work.
