3 Months

Easton had a big 3rd month with his first airplane ride and his first visit to Disneyland! The other kids were closer to 1 when they went for the first time, but we were due for a visit and it seemed fitting that he go early seeing as how he is named after Walt Disney. He is our Mickey baby!

Easton at 3 months:

*Discovered his hands and loves sucking on his thumbs.
*Holds onto things like rattles, toys, and hair (mine and Peyton's).
*Soothes himself by sucking on his thumbs and will put himself to sleep for naps that way.
*Loves kicking and splashing in the bath.
*Enjoys sitting in his Bumbo.
*Startles at loud noises.
*Has been wearing size 3-6 months clothes for a few weeks now.

Easton's 3rd month in pictures:

He loves sitting up in the corners of our couch with a pillow to help keep him from falling over.

He had been wearing these fox pajamas (that were Logan's) for a few months, but I had been waiting for it to cool down a bit before I pulled out Logan's pajamas (that were Corbyn's) that matched to take this picture. Easton was about to grow out of them, so I got them out and Logan loved matching Easton. He was so upset when he found out that Easton wasn't going to be able to fit in his fox pajamas anymore. 

Logan on the left, Easton on the right.

4.5 years ago! Corbyn on the left, Logan on the right. (Logan was less than a month old in this picture, and is obviously a lot skinnier than Easton at over 2 months!)

We have a pretty big bathroom counter in our master bathroom, so if he got fussy while I was getting ready I would put him up there on a blanket (standing right there by him the whole time).

While we were designing and ordering shirts for the Phillips family reunion at Bear Lake last summer, we found out I was pregnant. We ordered a number 14 shirt to announce to the family that I was pregnant. We ended up losing that baby before the reunion, but saved the shirt for whoever had the next Phillips baby. Easton ended up being that number 14 - late to the party, but worth the wait!

Another matching shirt picture. Logan and Easton. (Not the best picture - neither of them was cooperating!)

Corbyn and Logan.

I finally took Easton to meet Krislyn and Kevan's twins. They were born just over 3 weeks after him. I'm excited for these 3 to grow up together.

This was General Conference weekend, so I put him down to nap downstairs more often than I normally did. And he was just too cute, so I took a lot of pictures of him sleeping.

Conference napping with dad.

More cute sitting up.

First stroller ride in his stroller without sitting in his carseat. We wanted to test this out to see if we could do it for Disneyland and we could!

Thank goodness for that thumb!

Holding his toys like a big boy.

First visit to a pumpkin patch.

Getting stronger!

I don't remember why I took this picture, but isn't he cute?!

First Blazers game. (It was also a first for me, Peyton, and Logan.)

First plane ride. He was an angel baby and slept almost the entire time.

Perfect onesie for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. 

One of many stroller naps on our trip. 

First ride at Disneyland - Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind.

First time meeting Mickey!

First Visit button.

Pixar Pier is just the best. I will defeat you Emperor Zurg!

Easton Walt meets Walt Disney.

We had to buy him this hat to protect him from the sun.

Happy 3 months Easton Walt!

2 Months

Easton's 2 month stats:

Weight: 14 pounds, 9 ounces (91st percentile)
Height: 24.75 inches (98th percentile)

He beat out Logan for our BIGGEST baby at 2 months by a whole pound!

Easton at 2 months:

*Is very content to lay on a blanket, but hates when we roll him over for tummy time.
*Smiles with his whole face and body.
*Makes the most adorable cooing noises.
*Is a great eater.
*Loves when we do the choo choo train or make his legs run.
*Had a terrible case of cradle cap that spread to his ears, face, and neck. I got the part of the rash in his hair under control quickly with some Head & Shoulders shampoo, but it took me a long time to figure out it was cradle cap on his ears, face, and neck. I was thinking it was either baby acne or eczema and I tried doing nothing, Cortizone 10, and Aquaphor lotion, but none of those things worked. Randomly one day I tried using some of the Head & Shoulders shampoo on his ears and that part of the rash cleared up overnight. I was very hesitant to try it on his face and neck, but after the great success on his ears I gave it a go and the rash completely disappeared like magic. After some googling I read that cradle cap can spread like that, but I really had to search to find that, so I'm guessing it's not very common. I edited his rash out of most of his pictures, but for about a month he looked pretty terrible in person!
*Was still wearing 0-3 month clothes and size 1 diapers, but moved on to 3-6 month clothes and size 2 diapers soon after his 2 month birthday. I returned $60 worth of size 1 diapers to Target since everyone gave me that size and he wasn't wearing them very long at all.
*Is the king of blowouts! 

Easton's 2nd month in pictures:

He started the month out with skinny arms and chicken legs, but grew like a weed and was a huge chunk by the end of the month.

I don't usually dress my kids in tank tops, but this one was too cute to pass up. Little brother hanging out with big brother.

First BYU football game (watched on TV). We played the U and got destroyed. 😓

First visit to Trillium Lake. He hung out in the shade on a towel the whole time.

This was at the beginning of the month when tummy time still put him to sleep. By the end of the month, nothing infuriated him more than being left on his tummy!

Blessing day. (I'll post more about this in another post.)

Most of the time when I would put something next to Easton at this point, he would basically ignore it.

But this day he totally attacked Mickey and it was perfect because he was wearing his Mickey outfit!

3rd wheeling it on our date night.

Peyton snuggles before bed.

He found his thumb and it has been true love ever since!

Same outfit as a few weeks before. Getting chubbier.

Sunday morning cuddles with Corbyn.

Park cuddles with Peyton. She's dressed for summer, he's dressed for fall. It was actually somewhere in between.

When your outfit matches mom and dad's bed.

Baby smiles are the best!

This was his favorite place to snuggle up and fall asleep after a good feeding. It was also my favorite place for him to be.

When your onesie matches the quilt mom is binding.

Starting to be able to sit in the Bumbo.

I dressed him in this outfit that Logan wore for his first Easter for church and he was not a fan. 

He was so happy when I took off his shirt and pants and let him just be in his onesie after church.

Just two brothers taking over mom and dad's bed.

Best view. 😍

I traded in an old carseat and got him this bouncer. I always wanted a simple one like this, but never could find the right one for the other kids. It's been the perfect place for him to hang out in the kitchen and occasionally take a nap.

Playing happily one minute, asleep the next.

We had a really busy Saturday and he didn't get changed as often as he should have been. His diaper just totally overflowed while we were at the White's house watching a BYU football game. I didn't have an extra outfit, so he got to hang out in his diaper. 

It happened again later that afternoon and this was his 3rd outfit of the day. (I realized after this day that he probably needed to be in the next size diaper.)

2 month birthday photo shoot. This is the choo choo train I was talking about above. It never fails to make him smile!

Happy 2 months to our smiley little guy!
