Has it only been two months? I feel like you've been my little buddy for my whole life. You fill your daddy and my hearts with more joy than we ever could have imagined.
Your past times include sharing a contagious smile, cooing, gooing and making other cute baby sounds, sticking your tongue out, laughing (it's so fun), eyeing and batting at your mobile and activity mat animals, listening to me read, tell you stories and sing, cuddling and kicking, kicking, kicking.
"I gotta kick momma, I gotta kick!"
You also enjoy bath time with daddy, and being held by friends. Baby smiles are just about the best thing that can happen to anyone and since you have so many, I like to share.
Laying on your tummy is not your favorite thing, so we are trying lots of activities to strengthen your neck. You sat in your bumbo seat just the other day and loved it.
We celebrated your first Easter and Passover this weekend. You were so good everywhere we went. You still sleep 10 1/2 to 11 hours a night, but don't 'sleep' during all your 5 nap times during the day. But you are just happy as can be to sit in your swing, bouncy seat, looking at your mobile all alone. You are actually happy all the time, but just light up when we interact with you. It makes it hard to put you down sometimes.
We've (well your daddy) coined some nicknames for you. Captain Coo is the current fav, but we also call you little man, little buddy, a short stent with Bubba - dad axed that fast. You are just so much fun.
I actually miss you at night, good thing I take a few dozen pictures of you everyday!
Your doctor calls you awesome and we couldn't agree more. This month you weighed in at 12 pounds 4 ounces (50th percentile), 23 1/2 inches tall (90th percentile) - daddy and I measured you 24 and 3/4 inches this morning-the nurses don't extend your legs all the way.
Our love for you grows as you grow. We can't wait to help you develop into a fun loving little boy. You light up our life!
