2. Whole. Months. Our little guy is growing up so quickly. He’s strong and healthy. He’s cute and cuddly. And we just love him so stinkin’ much. The transition to motherhood has been hard, not bad, just hard – lots of change. I used to commute at least 45 minutes each way to work, so I was away from our house for a good chunk of time each day interacting with people. Now, I sit at home and have a one way conversation. Rarely do I shower and get ready. If I’m offered free time, I don’t even know what to go and do anymore! But, I wouldn’t trade getting to be with my boy for anything. Time with him is so sweet.
You’ve started smiling and cooing nonstop and every time I just want to cry because it’s so cute. You’re still double fisting it with breast milk and formula, and as a result you already weigh 12 lbs. 9 oz – the 75th percentile. And you’re up to 23 inches long. You’re growing so fast. Please slow down just a little. Each day you notice new things and are able to stay up for longer periods of time without getting fussy. That’s fun for me! Your eyebrow scowl is fierce, mister. You get that from your dad. I think you’re going to be a lot like him, which is good because he’s brilliant and funny and handsome. This month you started going to church – we’re praying for you to know and love Jesus. You pooped on daddy’s shirt, went to Blue Goose and hated it, and you had your shots – that wasn’t your favorite. I can put you on your play mat and you giggle at the butterflies. Just this past week you found your hands! It’s been a busy month. We love you to pieces!
