60 days already??

It is amazing to me how quickly time has passed by. My sweet baby boy is already 2 months old. That means I have had 60 sleepless nights, changed 300+ diapers, done twice as much laundry as I did before he arrived, and most importantly, had 1440 hours of loving on my adorable boy. And look at how much he has changed in 2 months!!



He went from my 10-lb chubby-cheeked bubba to a long and lean kickin' machine!! He is holding that head up strong, starting to coo and smile at his Daddy (only Matt can get this out of him so far!!) and loves to lay on his back and kick like he is riding a bike. He is so very close to turning over on his tummy. He arches his back up and tries to kick his leg over, but not yet!! We still have some work to do on sleeping habits but honestly, getting up once a night is not so bad anymore, I just wish he would remain consistent each night. That's the killer!!

Last week, we received the best gift in the mail from Julie at Shabbywears. Julie and i met last Spring and had a mutual love of the Texas Hill Country- only she gets to live there!! Her faith is strong and I have enjoyed getting to know her through the bloggy world. And even though we have never met, she made us a gift for sweet Ian. She had been working on the blanket for my little guy since before he was born. The below pictures do not do this justice- it is so incredibly soft and gorgeous. You can tell it was made with love- and Ian enjoys laying on it.



Julie also sent along a handmade necklace, bracelet, and earring set for the new momma!!! It is exquisite. Julie, thank you so much for loving on my family!! I do hope we can meet in person one day as well!

Happy 2 month old birthday little man!!
now let's work on sleeping through the night......

My oh my they change so fast! Beautiful pictures - and the blanket is lovely :) If he's only getting up once now, I'd think he'd sleep through early for you - fingers crossed!

I must go take some Benadryl to get rid of the baby itch you have given me!

WOW he's gotten so big -- it's amazing how much they change in so few weeks. Can't wait to love on him this weekend (and maybe take a nap with that blankie!).

Wow, I can't believe that it has been two months. It seems like only yesterday you were talking about heading to the hospital. I love the upclose pictures of Ian with the blanket.
Isn't it crazy how we make such good friends in blogland.
Have a great day!

He is just so stinkin' cute!! I am so thrilled to be having a boy, I now look at little boy things everywhere I go...haven't needed to do that in almost 12 years! I love it! Of course I cried last night when I saw the little church shoes of my baby girl that are too small, and realized I'd never need newborn girl things again! Man I am a baby!:-)

Xazmin said...
