. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Isaac two months old

Isaac two months old

Dear Isaac - 

You are already two months old!  Time is going way too quickly.  You are just the sweetest, happiest little guy and we can't imagine life without you.  You really are a very content baby.  You rarely cry. Once in awhile in the car and in the evenings you've gotten worked up, but otherwise you start fussing when you want something and become happy again very quickly.  

You are getting stronger and stronger and can lift and hold your head up pretty well.  You love kicking your legs.  As soon as we take off your clothes you get this excited, happy look on your face and just start kicking your little legs so fast.  Your arms flail all around and you are so happy. You love being naked!  

You smile all the time and starting cooing and "talking."  You love looking at your sister and she loves making you smile.  Your other favorite thing to look at is the ceiling.  You love lights and fans and seem to be happier looking at them than any toys we have.  I keep forgetting to get out the "baby" toys so you look at Addilyn's my little pony toys, her blocks and trains more than anything else.  But really the ceiling is your favorite.  

Very slowly we're getting into a somewhat routine for you, but mostly it depends on what we're doing that day.  I've started putting you down for a morning nap, usually about an hour after you wake up for the day.  I put you in the rock n play in our bedroom and you sleep for just thirty to forty minutes.  Then we usually leave the house and you sleep on and off either in the stroller, carseat or the wrap.  Most days you fall asleep soon after Addilyn goes down and I hold you on the couch.  It is my favorite time of the day and I know I'll be sad when we don't get to do that anymore.  You usually sleep on and off in the later afternoon, either in the car or in your bouncy seat or the wrap again, depending on what we're doing.  We don't quite have a bedtime routine yet, but you usually fall asleep sometime between 7:30-8:30 and most nights I still hold you on the couch until I'm ready for bed.  Some nights you sleep until 1:30 and then again till 4:30. Those are my favorite nights!  Nursing has been a little challenge but we are figuring it out and it's getting better.  You spit up quite a bit, but hopefully that will get better soon! 

You're losing some hair on the top of your head, and look kind of like an old man.  A very, very cute old man.  Your eyes seem to change color and we can't tell if they are brown, hazel, or grey!  You're wearing mostly 0-3 and 3 month clothing and still have short little legs and a long torso just like the rest of your family.  You've definitely filled out a little in your face and arms and legs, and still have a good round belly! 

You really are just so happy and content and I could not be more in love with you.  


your mom
