You're two months old! This month did go by a little more slowly than your first, but still TOO FAST! It was a good month, baby John. You're sleeping better and even more, you're smiling and interacting more, and you are just so darling. My angel. We love you!
This month you got to spend more time with your dad! He's now as smitten with you as your brothers and I are! You are really a good baby. You're patient when I have to attend to your brothers first, you rarely cry, and only if you're tired or hungry, and you love to snuggle. You help me slow down and appreciate this time in life. I find myself some times during each day just staring at you, or talking to you. And I'm glad to see your dad and brothers do the same.
You've really started sleeping well at night. Thank you! You've been going down around 8:30-9 and sleeping to 5 or 6 or even sometimes 7. Occasionally you wake up once before then and settle back down quickly. You even slept in your own room once while your big brothers were out of town. I'm a littler nervous to try it when your brothers are home because one of them (cough...Ethan...cough) is LOUD and takes a while to fall asleep. I'm worried he'll keep you up. He's also a light sleeper, and I'm afraid of waking him in the middle of the night. I know just have to bite the bullet and try it soon. I'm sure you prefer your crib to the pack and play (now in my closet) anyway!
During the day, you have a hard time sleeping any where besides my arms or the car. We're working on it. A lot of times it is because I am busy with your brothers and don't have time to help you get into a good deep sleep, and we are also always taking someone somewhere or picking them up, etc. But again, we're working on getting into a good groove. In the meantime, like I said, I'm enjoying having to slow down sometimes and just hold you. You're an angel! I'll keep saying it!
You're still nursing well, maybe sometimes too fast? You're growing. And my back is hurting! You're heavy! :-) You're just a big boy. And you already have some fantastic rolls and I love it. But my favorite thing about you is your smile! You've really started smiling and talking! I love the cooing. You talk like you actually think you're saying something, and usually you are so very happy. I love it. And the fans and TV stands are no longer getting more smiles out of you than me. I win! It is fun to watch the big boys try to get you to smile, too. When they are successful, and Jacob is more often than Ethan I think because E is a little too rough, it lights up their world. They get so excited. They sure love you, and I hope you three will always be the best of friends.
We sure love you, sweet boy. We're lucky, and so very grateful to have you. I hope you always know that. It's great to be your mother. You'll always be my baby John.
Love you forever,
