So, everything lately has been very Shark-centered, so I thought I'd give us all a little break from the baby. I'd like to share with you all 5 things you may not know about me:

1. I'm a name-o-phile. I have an obsession with names. I love baby name websites, blogs, books, etc. I think that the names we choose for people (and things) say a lot about us.

2. I think standing ovations are over-used. I don't give a standing ovation unless a performance was incredible. Not every concert, play, or show deserves the honor of me getting to my feet.

3. I wish my house had a laundry chute. I get really tired of carrying dirty clothes down 14 steps.

4. If I feel like my world is falling apart I like to get a pedicure or my eyebrows waxed. I don't feel like myself unless these simple things are taken care of.

5. I dream of being a fiction writer. I would love to have a book published.

So, what's something I don't know about you?

2 Months

Yep, it's that time again. My little man is 2 whole months old. We went to the pediatrician today and he weighed in at 11lbs 13oz and is 24.75 inches long. Which puts him in the 97th percentile for height and 50th percentile for weight. So, without further ado, my monthly letter:

Dear Sharkster,
Holy cow, you are getting so big! I love getting to spend so much time with you. This past month we worked on getting you on a schedule. Like everything else I don't pick up immediately, when it didn't work as planned I got frustrated and decided we'd do more of a rhythm than a schedule. So we started a bedtime routine. Every night we feed a bottle, get you dressed for bed, read you "Guess How Much I Love You", sing "You Are My Sunshine", swaddle you up nice and tight, and then rock you to sleep. You are great night time sleeper, usually only waking up once in the night to eat. Naps, however, are another story. Sometimes you are a great napper, taking 2-3 hour naps, and other times you'll only settle in for short cat naps. I don't generally mind, though, I'll just put you in the car and let you nap while I run errands.
You are such a happy and smiley little guy. The only time you cry or get fussy is when you're hungry or tired. You love it when daddy and I talk baby talk to you, sing silly songs, and play patty-cake. You also love it when your Pops snacks on your toes. Your favorite person to take naps with is your Uncle Zig, and you love to make faces at your Uncle Mac. Your Aunt Maddie spoils you rotten, but you still won't give her a real smile. We're working on fixing this. Your Grammy Judy comes to visit you at least once a week, and you love to snuggle on her.
You still have crazy and fuzzy hair. I love to show people your baby mullet. When I sit you on my lap you do this funny thing where you stretch your neck out to get your head up as high as it will go. This has led me to nickname you either scrunch-head, turtle-head, or a combination of the two... usually Scrunchy-Turtle-Head. You love it when I tell you how handsome you are. That always makes you smile the biggest, but anytime I get out the camera to try and capture a smile you immediately stop. You're just like your daddy that way.
Well, my sweet baby boy, I look forward to another month of watching you grow and develop. You are most definitely my sunshine.
I love you to the moon and back!

I Suck at Blogging

So, I realize that I have a very good reason for not keeping up on my blog, but I still feel a little bad about leaving all 3 of my readers hanging.

Life has been a little crazy in the Borges household lately, what with getting used to a new baby and all. I feel like we're returning to some sort of normal (although it is a different normal than it was before).

We blessed Sharkbaby on Sunday. Curious George did a great job, and both of my boys looked so handsome!
I've been working on a schedule with the baby, and so far it's going pretty well. I read the book Babywise, and I really liked the concepts, so we're doing a modified version of that plan. I didn't like how rigid the plan in the book was, so I've just been following the Eat-Awake-Sleep pattern. The rest kind of evolved itself. He's even consistently sleeping 7-8 hours at night, and I can't complain about that! He's growing like a weed, my 6 week old baby is wearing 6 month clothes, which means that all of the cute things I bought for him to wear this summer are being modified to wear right now.

Other than that, life is just trucking along here. We're staying plenty busy and having lots of fun!
