two months

dear declan,

i'll probably say this every month, but where does the time go?  i can hardly believe i've had you in my arms for two months now.

right now your weighing about 10.5 lbs and are 21.5 inches long.  lots of changes this month in growth.  i teared up when i pulled out a box of size 1 diapers for the first time and wept when i traded out your newborn clothes for 0-3 month outfits.  you smiled for the first time this month and now that we are getting your silent reflux a bit more under control we're seeing lots more sweet smiles from you that melt this mama's heart.  you love being out and so we've introduced you to some of our favorite restaurants and you've done some shopping with me this month too.  we make great target buddies.  you're not a huge fan of sleep, which your daddy and i can't figure out where you got that from.  for the last week you have hardly napped during the day, but you do fall asleep at about 9:00 pm and are waking up about 9:00 am with one feeding at about 3 or 4 in the morning.  mama is loving those long stretches of sleep.

you're still rolling over on your back when we do tummy time.  you're a strong one and this month you have discovered my hair. 

i've been startled to see some strands of it in your fists.  you still love being held and rocked, which i absolutely love.  and you know our voices.  bath time is your favorite and waiting to be feed is your least favorite.  when you get mad you purse out your lower lip and it's just so pitiful and adorable all at the same time.  you're slowly getting in your hair.  it's that gorgeous shade of red like your daddy's.  not a day goes by that i don't praise the lord for allowing me to be your mama.

i love you my little man,

What a cute little man. And how great that he sleeps through the night for so long.
