You are 2 months old! This is pure insanity. You are turning into a cuddly, roly poly little baby with a double chin who is starting to coo at us. It is magic.
This month, you made a big stride in the sleeping department, stretching out to a nightly 7-hour run. Hooray! You go down around 8:30 and sleep until about 3:30. After that, it's a little willy-nilly. You're also settling into good naps, taking a morning nap and a long afternoon nap (usually around 3 hours!).
The passing of your dear great-Granny took us on a whirlwind tour of Texas, and you did GREAT (you and your sissy both)! Almost 1,600 miles we went in the car, and we made it.
(picture the above, but with Mommy between you guys mostly...it was an interesting ride!)
Here you are sweetly sleeping in your pack-n-play...
I love watching you and your long eyelashes sleep:
On our Texas trip, you got to meet two of your great-grandparents!
Grandaddy in Houston:
Grandma in Dallas:
Our Memphis Grizzlies have been tearing it up in the Playoffs this month...here's our family composite, by Daddy. Your face is too precious!
Me and my little buddy:
***Your stats: at two months old, you are 12 lb 2 oz, and 24 inches long (75th and 95th percentiles, respectively). You are a tall drink of water! Look how long!
You wear size 1 diapers, and 0-3 month clothing (though I am sneaking you in a few 3-6 month things already).
You have the sweetest little disposition! If fed and dry, you are mostly just content to sit and pleasantly enjoy being with everybody. You love being held up on our shoulders, earning you the affectionate nickname of "little gargoyle."
One thing that does plague us a little bit is your spitting-up. My lands, child! It is crazy! It no longer seems to really bother you that much, but boy can you spit up! Just when we think you're done, you'll show us we were wrong! LOTS of laundry for Mommy! Because of this, you still nurse frequently during the day, in smaller amounts, so you don't get too overloaded. We'll see how this goes when you start "school."
Your trademark pouf is still going strong and very popular. No one can resist touching it if given the chance. Even this sweet teenage boy at church the other day went in for a pat.
Your sister loves you dearly already, and her "hugs" have gotten way more gentle, though she still asks you for high fives on the regular. She loves to hug you whenever she gets a chance, and loves to greet you in the mornings when she wakes up. I cannot wait to watch the adventures you two will have together!
We are just crazy about you, little precious! I will miss my sweet little sidekick when I return to work in a week and a half. I love you to the moon and back!
