At Two Months

          You are already two months old!  The past two months have been so very busy and eventful so, naturally, the days have passed in the blink of an eye.  You have grown from my snugly little newborn into a curious and happy baby boy.
          At two months you are so much more alert and awake more hours during the day.  You are so strong and hold your head up well when you are held upright and during tummy time, which you don't exactly enjoy.  We love your sweet smile and your so serious faces.
         You are still breastfeeding and it seems that we have finally gotten a rhythm down.  I am actually surprised that we are still at it because your brother and sister were already on formula by this age.  You don't take a bottle well and that is fine by me.  I just love the time we have spent bonding.
        You are a pretty good sleeper, taking naps throughout the day and sleeping 5-7 hours at night.  You are still sleeping in your bassinet and, since you don't sleep soundly anywhere else, you'll stay there until you outgrow it.
        At your check up this month, you weighed 11 lbs. 13 oz. and you're 23 1/2 inches long.  By far our biggest baby. Your hair is beginning to fall out and in the most unusual pattern.  There is a little bald patch on the back of your head from where you rub your head in your sleep.  We think it is adorable. 
        This month, you have discovered the birds on your swing and the toys that hang over you on your play mat.  You are content in your swing and bouncy seat but prefer being snugged in someones arms.   You have started to turn your head to your brother and sister's voices and I know you are already trying to figure out a way to keep up with them.
        Your brother loves you so much, giving you kisses throughout the day and trying to calm you down when you are upset.  Your sister comes into our room every morning looking for you and, when she finds you, delightfully cries, "hi, baby".  She also runs around the house asking, "where my baby" when she can't see you. 
        We love you, little monkey.  We can't wait to watch you grow and grow.
