2 Months: Week #3

Well, little chubby monkey just keeps getting bigger and bigger! I think he's on a mission to grow up as fast as he possibly can! He's got not one...but TWO teeth coming in! He rolls over like a pro, holds his head up like a champ and loves to talk! I even got my first big round of belly laughs from him this week! I feel like every day is an adventure when you have a baby--cause you never know what they are going to do next!

One of the sweetest things is when Seth gets on the floor next to Justin to play. Justin just lifts his head up to watch and watch and will reach for the toys now too. He will even fuss unless Seth gets right next to him! Big Brother Adoration!

He loves to talk to all his hanging toys on his bouncer and carseat and it just cracks me up sometimes to listen to him.

I thank God for this precious little boy that we prayed sooo hard for!

2 Months Week #2

It's been awhile since I last posted, but we've been busy travelling to PA for the feast and then coming home and getting back in schedule. During that time, Justin has just been growing like a weed and getting so big! Can you believe he's already had his first haircut? Yep! He's also already rolled over from tummy to back! And he can do it to the left or right! He's a pro at doing baby pushups and holding his head up. He's really a strong little fella!

Today was his 2 month checkup and boy, he grew! in the last 6 weeks he's gained nearly 4lbs and grew 3"! He's a whopping 16 lbs 4.5 oz and 25" long! Basically the size of a 6 or 7 month old! He's just so cute and chubby and such a happy baby! I love that he's a minimal fuss baby. He really only cries if he's hungry, dirty, sleepy...or hurt! Today he cried and cried and cried because he got two shots--one in each thigh! That made him very sore tonight, but I finally got him down for bed and hope for a good 7 hour stretch....

oh yeah, did I mention he started sleeping through the night the first night we were in PA? Yes, he did! A 7 hour night! followed by 3 more hours! And he's done that every night since! It's WONDERFUL!!!

One of my favorite things is that he's such a talker. Tonight he was just talking up a storm and we got it on video! So I'm going to upload it to Youtube and then post it for everyone to enjoy because it's just too cute!
