two months.

Baby Cole...

Today you are two months old.
I love you more every day!

You love:

...being held
...riding in Daddy's car
...looking at you big sisters & brother
...your bright colored toys
...taking a bath
...kisses on the neck
...tickles under the ribs
...snuggling in your carrier
...being swaddled
...sleeping with Mommy
...sucking your fists (both if possible)
...getting massaged after your bath, especially your feet

You are full of real smiles and starting to giggle. You say "AAAHH" and "A-GUUUH"

You're still not the best sleeper, during the day napping in the car, and sleeping from about 9 pm to 2 am... then tossing and turning and grunting from 2 to 7.

You are in cloth diapers about 50% of the day. I use cloth wipes 100% of the time, and wonder why I ever bothered with disposables with the other kids.

You're in 3-6 months stuff, but quickly outgrowing it all. You need a new beanie cause it's getting cold, and yours no longer cover your ears.

You had your first round of shots today. It was a very cuddly day and I didn't mind at all.

Your hair is growing in and you officially have more than Daddy. He's a little bitter.

You weigh 14 pounds, ten ounces. 97th percentile. And 99% for height. Do you think you'll be taller than Mommy?! Probably by third grade.

You hardly cry, unless you're startled. You get really fussy when your diaper's wet.

Chloe is your mini-mom... Chayse makes all kinds of noises to keep you happy in the car... Camden is so rough with you (out of love... and maybe a wee bit of jealousy), I would never leave the two of you alone together! You make the perfect baby brother.

I am getting used to the sleep deprivation, and things are slowly getting back to normal around here. I like the new normal. You're my Rolley Polley!
