I can’t believe how fast my baby boy is growing! It was a few days late, but I’m still impressed that I successfully took and edited some two month photos. Can I get a round of applause for follow-through? His three month will be on the 4th of July and I’m excited to take his picture in the little red, white and blue outfits his Aunt Jo and Great Great got him. For comparison of his weed-like growing, here are his one month and two month teddy bear perspective shots.

1 month vs 2 monthHis cheeks are definitely chubbier. I’ve had to put away quite a few of his little outfits because he’s already outgrown them! *sniff sniff* My big, long two-month-old is now wearing his 3-6 month clothes. I will really miss some of his sweet little Newborn outfits. He has grown about two inches and gained probably 5lbs+ by now. Samuel was almost 22 inches long and 11lbs 1oz almost two weeks ago at his check-up. As much as I miss my tiny little new guy, it’s so fun to watch him develop his personality. He started to really smile at us a few weeks ago and now he is a grinning machine on the verge of laughing. He thinks it’s absolutely hilarious when I ask him if he is a Bad, Bad Baby. We have also discovered that he has a ticklish tummy.

His sleeping has improved and he consistently goes down for one 5-6hr stretch almost every night. For this I am very grateful. IMG_6319editedLuna runs up to Samuel whenever he cries so she can check on him. We think she is still judging us to be ill-fit parents since we never lick him. “Poor bald puppy,” she is thinking.

IMG_6317editedHe has been napping in his bassinet in the living room or in his swing during the day (although the motor in the swing is about to die on us so that may change depending on whether or not we decide to get a new swing or stick with the bouncy chair) and he sleeps in his cradle next to our bed at night. I think he’s about to outgrow the bassinet, though.

    You simply couldn’t ask for a prettier, more healthy looking baby boy! The picture of Luna sitting pretty or standing guard, (your preference!) is wonderful! It should be enlarged and kept on display………

    He is beautiful love the pictures and Luna too. You and Daniel are blessed. Can’t wait to see him maybe I get to hold him this time.

      He does look just like his Daddy! At least he has my fingers and toes 🙂 Looks like he might have my blue eyes too; for now anyway.
