Remington is 2 Months Old!

Mr. Remington turned two months old yesterday on the same day his cousin Tate celebrated his very first Birthday. Happy Birthday Tate!

You may notice that Mr. Blue Monkey is missing from this month's photo shoot. He somehow snuck into Addy's room and is currently being held captive there. Just kidding, we took these pictures during Addy's nap and there was no way I was going to sneak in there to get him. 

Even without the comparison to Mr. Blue Monkey, I can still tell Remi has grown. His well check isn't until this Thursday so we'll see how much he's grown then. He's pretty much only wearing three month clothes and some six month pj's. 

It doesn't take too much to make this little guy smile and I'm pretty sure he giggled at me the other day.

He hardly ever has the googly-eye look anymore, like in the photo above, but the nickname "Googly-Bear" has stuck. Can you guess what Disney movie that's from?

He seems to get more and more handsome everyday and always attracts the ladies when we are out and about. This can be a good and bad thing. The other day a lady approached me at Target, asked the typical questions like how old and what his name was. When I told her his name, she asked what his nickname was. She didn't seem to like my answer and asked what he would be called when he's older. Um... Remi? Remington? "Nope, that's too long. Probably Rem." 

And people wonder why we keep our names a secrete.

Check out those beautiful eye lashes.

Remi loves to snuggle on shoulders. We hardly ever carry him like a normal baby because he hates it. I'm thinking he may have some tummy issues but really what baby doesn't? He's not a fan of tummy time but is pretty good at holding his head up. Surprisingly, he's also not a fan of the paci. I've given up on offering it to him and it actually makes life a little easier not having to keep up with those things.

He tends to be either super happy or super grumpy from seven to nine pm. But after he eats at nine, we don't hear a peep from him until six or six thirty in the morning. He's a great sleeper which probably has something to do with being a bigger baby? My new advice for expecting Mother's is to load up on milkshakes. You might not be able to wear a bikini ever again but you'll get nine straight hours of sleep two months after delivery. Ha!

That's probably the worst advice ever because all I really know about babies is that everything can and will change. You think your baby is sleeping through the night and then they get a tooth and you have to start all over again.

For now, I'm enjoying my sleep and trying to find ways to burn off all those milkshakes I consumed during pregnancy.

Happy two months Mister Remington!

Big Sister

It's been two months since Addy officially became a big sister and so far, she seems to be liking her new role. 

Although she might not be a huge fan of splitting the attention with him, Addy loves her little brother and I think he's one lucky little guy to have her as a big sister. The other day she told me was her best friend and you should see the way Remi looks at him. I'm praying they will be the best of friends.

Addy often asks to hold Remi and then talks to him in a high little voice that she uses with anything cute and little.

"Maybe I can hold his hand if he gets scared." I guess he did.

One afternoon, Addy asked to play with Remi. She moved the ottoman over because it was "a good place for him lay down" and then said "Hello ma'am. What do you want to eat? Chicken nuggets? Good pick."

Picnic Time!

"Let me check your heartbeat. Sound good."

Sweet movie buddies.

And while we're on the subject of Miss Adelyne, here are a few of the funny things she says that I've managed to write down.

You want purple cereal?
"Yes, I get it. Oh Mom! You got Cheerios?!?"
Yes do you want some?
"Yes I LIKE Cheerios!"
That's why I got them for you.
"Oh tank you! Cheerios my favrit"

Those flamingos are stinky
"They need to be changed? They go poo poo?"

Where's Addy?
"Here I are!"

"Please put some gasoline on my butt."
(I think she meant vasoline)

There's muffins for breakfast
"I know the muffin man."
How do you know the muffin man?
"Mom please sing it."

"Look I got socks on my hands!"

"Where do cows go when the need sugar?
To the mooooobers!"

That's definitely the right way to play with stickers.

July and August in the 505; Catch Up Time

Two months worth of iphone photos organized and in one post; a short account of what the Danner family was up to in the months surrounding Remi's birth.

Obviously, the biggest event of the past two months was the birth of our son, Remington Danner. But before the little guy came along, we spent several days at the pool, enjoying some our favorite summer time snacks.

Remi, came a day after his due date and just like his big sister, ended up having to spend a week in the NICU.


The day we got to take him home was a special one and that week flew by as we adjusted to life as a family of four. Before we knew it, July was over and August was upon us. 

Brother and Sister // Chillin' in the Boppy // Snuggle Time with Mom // Ring Around the Rosie // Nap Time with Pappa // Hangin' with Granmaire // Big Guy! // Gramps and Remi // Sweet Cousins

I turned 28 in August (yikes!!) and Matt surprised me with his own version of a Breaking Bad tour through Albuquerque!
Los Pollos // Jessie Pinkman's House // Jessie's Other House // The Dog House // The Grove // The Laundry // The Grove // Crossroads Motel 

What a fun and crazy couple of months!
