Kalen is growing like a weed

Kalen is 13 weeks old today and will be 3 months tomorrow. Wow time is flying! He has started to giggle a lot more. It is the cutest thing EVER! Here are a couple of pictures from the last few weeks.

Huge mommy fail!

Kalen is sleeping the majority of his sleep in his crib now but after his morning bottle he comes into our bed for another round of sleep. This is not something I specifically wanted to happen but he sleeps so well that second time and well I like it.

Up until now everything has gone well. I am normally a lite sleeper but with Kalen in the bed I am a super lite sleeper. Until this morning...... when I was exhausted beyond anything I have felt yet. I remember going to get him, feeding him and falling asleep when he was done with him in between the two of us. This is where I have no idea what happened but next thing I did know Kalen was on the ground... balling his eyes out. He fell out of our bed and hit his head on the floor HARD.

The sound immediately woke me and when I saw it was Kalen on the floor I freaked out. What the hell is wrong with me!?!? How did I let this happen to him. I feel like the worst momma on earth.

We called health link because I was so worried and the nurse informed me that we should head to the children's hospital. We did because I was sure in the back of my mind that I had just killed my baby. After being looked at by the doctor a few times over a few hours he said all seems well and some signs to look for just in case. He has a little bump and a scratch on his head but otherwise he seems fine.

I on the other hand am not fine. I can't believe I let that happen. What the F**K! He is such an awesome baby and he deserves better then me.

I love you so much Kalen! I am SO sorry! We will no longer be co-sleeping... as much as it does sadden me it is worth his safety.

Lots of changes

Kalen is now sleeping between 6 and 7 hours a night..... YEAH little man. He goes to bed around 10:30pm is up around 5:00am eats and goes back to sleep for another 2 hours. It is so nice!

We also had our first solo night since Kalen was born and it was AWESOME! I missed his every minute we were apart but I knew he was in good hands with my mom and stepdad. We went out with One of M's friends and his girlfriend. We ended up having to much to drink which may have ended the evening on a sour note but otherwise it was perfect.

He has started to giggle and it is the most amazing thing ever! It's not a very hardy giggle yet but it's there and I love it to pieces! He loves to play patty cake so that usually brings on the giggle.

I love you Kalen!

He is growing way to quickly

Kalen is now sleeping in his crib! I know it's a good thing but I miss him. We have been sleeping together every night since he came home from the NICU and I miss it. I am happy that it is going so well though. He usually goes to sleep anytime from 11pm to midnight. He sleeps for 6 hours, wakes for a bottle then goes back to sleep from that point on he is on his regular 3 hour feed schedule.
