bathroom. It is a nice warm gray. I couldn't tolerate painting the walls to match the fleshy/yellow beige of the tile, and there is veining in the tile that matches the wall color, so I think it works ok. The rack above the toilet is from Amazon, it was so easy to install and give us a nice place to stack a couple towels. It was hard to find a towel rack because that little wall is only 24 inches, and most '24 inch' racks are actually almost 26 since the measurement only accounts for the bars. Love Amazon!
He still will not sleep decently unless being held. He usually sleeps for one 2 hour stretch per night in the rock n play (the rest of the night on me) and a single 1-2 hour nap in the swing during the day if I'm lucky. Some days he doesn't really sleep all day long, just little cat naps while nursing. It's so exhausting and it's not just me, he is also super tired. But he won't tolerate a swaddle, he won't take any pacifier I've tried, he won't even take any bottles - so I'm trapped at home with him. He is also so big that it's tiring to wear him in the carrier. He weighed 14 lbs 4 oz at his 2 month check up!
I was dairy free for four weeks, and we didn't really notice a difference in his behavior or desire to be held/hatred of laying down, so I started eating some earlier this week. Then he became extremely fussy and cried even while being held, so I'm back to no dairy hoping it will at least cut out some gas. It's hard, but I still manage to find some happy baby moments to take cute photos of Zach. I am determined to take as many photos/videos of him as I did with Ashford, I think it's so sad that first kids always have more! I've committed to doing a 365 book of Zach, the same as I've done for Ashford in 2014 and 2015. It will be so fun to see him gradually growing in each photo! Here are some of my recent favorites:
This one has a little glimpse of a new rug we got for the living room. The living room is in transition right now since Shaun wanted the sectional downstairs. It's such a mess!
And despite Ashford not wanting to participate in photo sessions with his brother, I managed to get some cute shots for Valentine's Day...
There has been some exciting progress on the lower level, I will try to clean that up and take some photos for you all this weekend!
