didn't i just write the one month post?! how is time moving so fast?!
thoughts on my two month old:
+ in month two jacob visited new york, maryland and massachusetts. i guess we can even count new hampshire since we pit stopped for an hour to visit our friends! he drove through pennsylvania, delaware and new jersey. that's not bad for two months of life, right?
+ jacob also decided it was time for a his first hike - a 1.1 mile climb to sterling pond in smuggler's notch.
+ he's slept for eight hours straight on two occasions. hopefully these occasions will become more frequent.
+ he's got a serious case of the smiles. what a smiley little man we have. it's so fun to sit him on our legs and get him to smile for minutes on end.
+ naps are our friends. it took me a little while to figure out that once changed and fed, if he's fussy, chances are he is tired. he loves his morning nap. he loves his afternoon nap. he loves his stroller nap on our nightly walk. so thankful for my napping, happy boy. when well-napped, his awake time is full of smiles and fun!
+ jacob loves his daddy. loves him. in fact, the only thing he wants right before bed is for his daddy to hold and rock him a little bit. we've read how it's not good to let such habits begin...but sometimes the little man needs a little extra snuggle and we don't think there is anything wrong with a little extra love...so forget all those don't rock your baby to sleep/don't snuggle your baby to sleep nonsense. we say...SNUGGLE AWAY!
+ little man works like clockwork. he's on such a good schedule and it's so good to be able to predict when he'll be hungry and when he'll need his nap. makes life happy and easy.
thoughts on being parents for two months:
my friend told me that when i had jacob, after about five weeks the fog would lift. she wasn't kidding. after about five weeks, we were in our routine and life started to sail along smoothly. i'm not entirely sure what happened those first five weeks of jacob's life, but i do know that new parents should not be held accountable for anything that happens those first five weeks. what a blur of walking around in zombie like states. wow. now, though, i feel like we are fully functioning human beings again! it is awesome.
and have i mentioned...we love this little guy. each day we love him more and more. it's crazy to think that two months ago we were just meeting him. we can't imagine life without him.
