{ griffin: 2 months}

Griffin.  You are Mama and Dada’s sweet boy.  If you can believe it, this month was better than the last.  You are all smiles all the time.  Seeing your first legit SMILE made me feel like the luckiest Mama in the world.  You recognize me but you light up when your Dad comes in the room.  You are such a happy baby and only cry when hungry or over tired.  You are eating 4oz every 4 hours during the day and snoozing like a “baby” all night long. When you are tired and grumpy, all we have to do is rub your face (you get this from your Mama) and off to dreamland you go. 
You had your first church service, your first mountain weekend getaway, and your first overnight stay away from Mama & Dada.

You are a happy go lucky baby.  You love your swing and would stay in the bath all day if you wouldn’t prune up.

You are tolerating tummy time for the moment.  You have improved a little as long as your stimulated.  5-10 min is your max.

At your two month check-up you weighed 11 pounds 4 ounces and you are 21.5 inches long.  You are growing perfectly, our short little chubs.

We have moved you up to size 1 diapers, but you could have stayed in your newborns for a wee bit longer. Your newborn onesies on the other hand, your Mama is stretching those out to kingdom come.  Not quite ready to say goodbye to those tiny little things.

You love car rides, but you hate the process of having to get into the car seat.  You have learned to buck when your hinny hits the seat, which means a workout for this Mama.

It is hard to believe that my maternity leave has come to an end.  Mama would love nothing more than to snuggle you all day.  I’m sure you will love meeting new friends at daycare and Mama is looking forward to some adult interaction.

You are such a joy, Griffin.  We are learning your cries and trying our best to fix them.  I have worked hard on your eat/play/sleep schedule and we have it down pat.  The past two months have been awesome and I love watching you learn every day.  Seeing you change so much over the past 2 months have made our hearts full.  Feel free to stay Mama’s baby forever.
