March For Babies 2013

Hi all! This year we decided to participate in the March of Dimes Walk. We wanted to help raise money that would go towards research for not only preventing premature births, but also caring for premature babies. We are so grateful that Elliot was so well for being born at 32 weeks. One main reason is because of the steroid shots I received a week prior to his birth...and that's just one example of how research can improve the outcome of premature birth.

We'd love if you can help Team Elliot! If you'd like to come walk with us or if you'd like to help sponsor our time, please visit our team page at

Thank you!

Elliot is two months old!

Time is flying by with our new little one! And he is growing so fast. At 2 months, Elliot weighs 10 lbs 4 oz. He is still sleeping quite a bit but staying awake longer and longer. He loves his bouncy seat and likes to play under his gym. He is still not reaching for things and is still not smiling socially-although I am trying my best to make him smile. haha.

I have to admit, he has become quite the handful at night. I've had to go back to work and about a week before I did, he's decided that he won't sleep at night unless I'm holding or nursing him. It's quite a challenge. After trying lots of things, I've finally given up. So I hold him next to me on his back and/or nurse him. Last night, I was able to sleep in 3 hour increments...sadly, I was thankful for that! haha. Here's his two month pic and a comparison with his one month pic! Note the double chin :)
