Two Months Today


Today you are officially 60 days old. How crazy is that?!? You still have wonky sleep at night, you're nursing less often during the day, and you have a loosely structured nap routine. You love to "swim" in a deep bath; kicking your legs and floating on your back. It makes you so tired and relaxed at the end of the day that you go right to sleep quite easily after your baby massage.

You've taken to gnawing quite hard on your knuckles - turning them red from all your chomping. And you've figured out how to let papa and I know you're mad. Just this week you screamed at him when he was trying to help you get your binky back in at nap time and you were getting frustrated. And I was trying to trim your nails while you were eating but you kept grunting/screaming at me every time I tried to hold your hand still. We mostly just laugh at you - it's pretty funny to see you screw up your tiny face in anger. But you've made it quite clear you don't like to be bothered while you're eating.

We just celebrated your first Christmas. Claire, Tessa, and Uncle Kenny were all in attendance. We ate good food while you mostly slept, and you were passed around and loved on the entire time. You were given alot of cloth and wooden toys - just like you're mama likes:) As well as some adorable new outfits from papa, and a beautiful handmade blanket from your Auntie Lily. There sure are a lot of people who love you and are ready to spoil you rotten.

You've grown so much in the last month! I'm putting together your photo album and I keep looking at pictures of the tiny little bean we brought home from the hospital. Now you've got big round cheeks that everyone comments on, an adorable double chin, and the cutest chunky thighs and arms ever. You've started to enjoy you're bouncer even more, and even discovered the fish that twirl on your swing. I got you a crib mirror for xmas and you are mastering pushing up on your arms and picking up your head to look at yourself.

I think one of your permanent nicknames is going to be "Thrasher". All morning long while I'm trying to feed you, all you can do it punch and kick me. For hours at a time you squirm and twist and turn, making it very clear that you should be at the center of our attention. If I happen to fall asleep you make sure I'm awake again as soon as possible.

On days when papa works nights he loves to lay in bed in the mornings and snuggle you, and then hang out with you in the nursery while he gets ready for work. He gets up in the middle of the night and sleeps in the glider so he can help you and I can get some sleep. And every day before he leaves he comes and gives you kisses goodbye. Today you looked up at him and gave him the biggest smile. It was amazing. You are our beautiful little boy and we love you so much!
