Our Baby is 2 months old!

Anson's two month stats: 10lb 8.5oz and 23 1/2inches long

Time has gone by so quickly, he'll be riding a bike and banging up his knees before we know it. These last two months have been filled with so many new experiences both joyful and tearful (on my part mostly), but altogether being parents to our little man is pretty fantastic. Anson is the sweetest little baby and 9 times out of 10, the MOST CONTENT baby in the world. He only wakes up once in the middle of the night to eat and then he usually goes back to sleep for me after his 6 or 7am feeding--not too shabby eh? Not bragging, okay maybe a little but we just feel very lucky.

Anson is starting to smile and coo, which is so fun that he can interact with us more. We recently borrowed a swing from some friends of ours and he is totally enthralled with it, he loves the music it plays and of course his turtle mobile which I attached to it (I just ordered his very own swing today). Anson is really starting to respond to color and sounds. His happiest time is first thing in the morning--he eats and gets his bum changed and then lays on our bed, in his chair, in his swing or on the floor and kicks his legs, coos and smiles for an hour or so. He's made many new discoveries this month; read on to learn more!

Baby Boy,

We love to see you smile and hate it when your sad. You have a smile that is going to break some serious hearts in the years to come (mostly your Mommy's). You don't quite smile when you're awake as big as you do when you're asleep, but that will come soon enough. You have a sad face that literally breaks Mommy and Daddy's hearts and it's usually followed by this very sad squeak leading into a cry, but that only happens when you're especially sad.

Mommy loves to dress you in all sorts of cute outfits and shoes.

You love to hang out in your diaper and you look so cute. You eat tons (the average infant consumes around two ounces at 2 months, you east anywhere from three to five) as evident by your growing belly.

You have tried lots of new things this month: you love your swing, you experienced your first campfire, attended your first parade and went on your first road trip (7 hours in the car and you were such a trooper)!

You have discovered your fists and you love to suck on them!

You have finally noticed the animals hanging from your chair and you love to kick and coo at them, well, most of the time...

You love to kick your legs and it's pretty cute to watch.

We love you so much little man and we love watching you grow! Happy 2 months little one!

Mommy and Daddy

P.S. I had to watch my baby get shots today and it was AWE-FULL!
