Noah [2 months old]

Our sweet little boy, already two months old. 
You have grown so much in the last month. At one month you weighed 9 lb 3 oz...and now you weigh 12 lb 15 oz. Daddy says all that milk is going straight to your cheeks (and thighs).
You started to smile regularly around 6 weeks...and it gets me everytime.
Between 5-6 weeks, I noticed you developed an umbilical hernia, which is fairly common...Christian always makes a comment on how big your belly button is. 
Shortly after 4 weeks until around 9 weeks you had a routine of getting fussy most often in the evenings for around 30-45 minutes (short periods other times too). You like to bounce...lots of bouncing standing up. My arms should be in better shape now!
You're not such a fan of the swing most of the time, and there's a small percentage that you actually are content in the "bouncer" seat. (However, during that small percentage I end up getting lots of pictures of it looks as if you love the thing!)
Sometimes, what you really love is to just lay on the ground or changing table and kick, kick, kick!

You are still in size 1 diapers...although only because this box is almost done..then its onto size 2 for you!
You are growing out of some of the 0-3 month things, but most of them still seem a bit long for some of them. 
You are still a good eater, you eat about every 2.5-3 hours during the day, and have one longer time in the late evening of going about 5 hours. I'm hoping this time frame could get bumped back to be from about midnight-5am...instead of starting at 8 pm. 
But really you do well at eating, then going back to sleep in the I'm not complaining.
You like to sleep on your tummy (I know, I know, you're not "supposed" to). You pick your head up and move it all over creation very well starting just after 4 weeks...and you've slept SO much easier since then. 
You don't seem bothered by noise for the most part, which is good...because your brother doesn't always hold back on his volume just because you're sleeping.
I've discovered you also like a little bit of your face covered, with a small blanket to go to sleep sometimes...and your hand likes to grab onto reach and grip for my neck often...funny how you have certain preferences and its just a matter of figuring them out. You often take a pacifier, but it isn't something you seem to "have" to have in order to sleep always.

It obvious to see you've changed in the last month....
however, your eyes are still the deep, ocean blue that you came out having. They are so pretty.

[5 weeks]

[6 weeks]
Our first outing together...just being the two of us. I had a dr appt, and you accompanied me to that and to finish Christmas shopping. You do NOT like your car seat as a rule. So finding the opportune time to put you in there is what I strive for....hearing you cry so hard in it just breaks my heart!

 [7 weeks]
You look so big here. You get lots and lots of kisses all over your cheeks and tummy!

[8 weeks]
You celebrated your first Christmas during this week. What a big week for you! During each celebration I think you slept :) You had a big brother that opened lots of gifts for you. 

We had to take a picture of one of your presents...proof that you actually got something, even if you didn't open it :)

 You can look SO furrow your eyebrows and just stare.

But you can also fill your face with happiness...I love it.

Such a sweet, sweet face.

I love you Noah. 
You are such a precious bundle of joy.
