My Blog Fernweh started out as a way to tell friends and family my ski injury story and recovery and grew into my travel blog. Some ordinary life stuff too, but mostly travel was my interesting thing to talk about. Now that we have Tyler, I was thinking of starting a new blog, but what the heck, lets just continue with this blog, and call it the Schultz Life Blog. Nothing amazing or profound here, just a way to keep up with our life, if you are interested.
April 9, 2011 my life changed forever. Tyler was born at 8:06 pm, 8 pounds, 12 ounces. I have most of my birth story type up, thanks to my mom, but I have not decided if I am going to publish it.
For now I will just update with Tyler's progress and work backwards as I think of things. On July 1st at 12 weeks old, he weighed 12 lbs, 2 oz. This is about the 50-percentile, and our doctor is happy with our progress (this is significant, a story I will share later). He seems long and slim to me (like his dad) with some nice rolls around his thighs.
We spend our day in a constant eat-play-nap cycle, with each stage of various lengths depending on the time of day and where we are (home or on the go). I am still breastfeeding which has it's advantages and challenges.
Tyler's personality is very easy-going for the most part. As long as I read his cues and get him to take a nap before he gets cranky, there is minimal crying. He plays in his crib looking at the mobile, on the play mat, in his swing, bouncy seat, or his favorite, looking at mom and dad. I lay him on his tummy for a few minutes every day but he does not seem to like it much.
