Adam Jonathan: 2 Months

Okay, let's just get one thing out of the way, Adam, you are a BIG boy! I've waited to write this post until I got your real stats from your 2 month appointment and you are officially 25.5 inches long (100%) and 14 pounds (84%)! We joke about how we forget that you are only two months old because of your size and that we often feel like you should be capable of more just because you look like a 4 month old! You are wearing 6 month clothing and are just as adorable as can be!

This last month has been a whirlwind. I've been trying so hard to soak up every single little baby snuggle I can get because I know they will be gone before I know it. It's amazing having you here and while you've definitely been a little more temperamental than your sister, I'm so, so, in love! Your smile just lights up your face and you have the chubbiest little cheeks.

Unfortunately, it seems you are already suffering from second child syndrome, because I haven't gotten my real camera out once to take pictures of you. It's all been on my phone. But, they are pictures nonetheless! I'm determined to get some two month pictures so I at least have something to hang in the house.

You are definitely a Mama's boy. You love to be held and close to me at all times. If you could be wrapped up next to me all day long, you would be content. Unfortunately, that isn't always possible, but I definitely wear you more often than not. You still nurse about every 2 hours and you have fallen into a nice little routine. You are typically in bed by 8 every night and you love to be swaddled. You'll then sleep till midnight at least, sometimes till 2(!) and then usually are up at 4 or 5 when I bring you back to bed with me to catch a couple more hours before Evelyn wakes up. You definitely enjoy this time in the morning, as do I. It's something I never did with Evelyn because she slept so well from the get-go, but I love this little me and you time before Evelyn wakes up.

Since you like to be held so much, you don't get a ton of floor time. That's okay though, you are tolerating it more and more every day. Just this week, you started batting at your toys on your little play mat!

You love to smile and interact with Mama and Dada! Your little (big!) smile just lights up your whole face! It's the sweetest thing. You've also been doing a lot of cooing and even a few little early "laughs." I LOVE it.

You LOVE bath time! You smile the whole time and just seem so content. We're still doing sink baths, but you are outgrowing it quickly! I may have to get the big tub ready soon! Part of the reason you love bath time I think is because you love to be naked! Almost every time you are fussing and I change your diaper, the minute it's off, you calm down and start smiling! Typical boy, right?

Can I also mention that you have amazing hair! I love it! It's so cute. Dark and kind of sticking up in a stylish sort of way. You are already a handsome little man!

Keep growing, big guy! But not too fast... :) Your Mama doesn't want to miss a thing!
