2 Months

This handsome little guy is 2 months old.
At his doctor's appointment, he was 14 pounds, 2 ounces and 24.5 inches long,
putting him in the 98th percentile for height and 90th percentile for weight.
We adore this little giant!

He is starting to wake up more and he is intensely interested in what surrounds him.
He has the brightest, super-dark eyes.
I feel like he has an old spirit when I look into them, but when he smiles it carries up to his eyes such that they literally twinkle.
He lost almost all of his hair (except a patch in the back) around a month old, but it is growing back in nicely.
He is smiling and chattering quite a bit these days, and he is so close to a belly laugh!
He still loves to be snuggled and swaddled tightly.
He eats every 3 hours during the day and every 4 hours at night, usually for less than 10 minutes (so his size is kind of strange).
He blows out of diapers pretty much daily.
He sleeps reasonably well at night, usually waking up once to eat and then a few times to be re-swaddled. I usually cuddle him from 5-6 on the couch so we can delay eating until 6:00 which puts him on the right schedule for the rest of the day. That makes both of us happier!
I think he looks the most like baby Talmage, but he also resembles baby Lincoln.

He is a fairly content baby, especially if he is in his swing or laying under his play gym batting at the toys, but the trouble is that I'm the one who doesn't ever want to put him down. I can't get enough of his soft, warm, squishy self cuddled up with me.

I'm so thankful for each moment we have with this bright-eyed boy.
