You are two months young today! Every day we have with you is such a joy and the changes and growth you have made over the past month keep us constantly amazed. To me, you still look like and feel like a little peanut but, flipping back through photos since you were born, I can't deny just how much you have grown and started to fill out. You have the most delicious chubby cheeks, second chin, yummy thigh rolls and new dimples on your hands and knees. We are in love with every inch of you!
You have found your hands and chew on them all day long - you seem to favor your right. Actually, you seem to favor your right for everything: turning your head to the right when you sleep and when you are on our shoulder and chewing on your right hand. I wonder if it's a fleeting preference or if you will be a righty for the long haul.
One of the best thing about two months, by far, is that you are finding your voice. You coo and make all kinds of noises. When you use your pacifier, you love to make lots of loud sounds and hear yourself - especially in the middle of the night! It's so rewarding for us to have "conversations" with you. We talk to you and you coo back in return. Such a delight!
And then, there is this:
You are a smiley guy and in the past week or so have figured out how to laugh! With gurgles, gums and your cheek dimple you melt us each and every time. There is nothing better to start or end a day than a laugh from our sweet boy. I pray that you can always find such joy in life.
In you 2 month photographs you are in your cute Gap corduroys. I was amazed (and a little dismayed) that the 0-3 size just barely fits you now. You are so long and filling out so well that you are sure to skip right to your next size wardrobe right at the three month mark, if not earlier! Your 2 month pediatric appointment is on March 1st and I can't wait to find your weight and length. I'm sure it's leaps and bounds from your last visit.
We love you to the moon and back, munchkin and can't wait to see what each new day brings.
All my love,
