Graham @ 2 months
Graham turned 2 months old on Monday. That is really hard for me to believe. He now weighs 12 pounds, 13 ounces. We have continued to be transitioning fairly easily and are doing well. The hardest thing for me during this transition has been the inability to run errands. Its just not worth it to drag all the kids out for errand running. I depend on Brent to stop at the grocery store on the way home from work if I am desperate for something... and I have to do my running around on the weekends when I can leave someone at home with Brent!
Our little man is full of smiles and offers them freely. He even laughed at me a few days ago. Its so rewarding once babies start to interact like that - it makes them seem more human or something. And it just makes my heart smile to see!
Graham is very laid back and easy going and has yet to have a real screaming fit. (knock on wood.) He is on a pretty good schedule, eating every 3 hours (@ 7, 10, 1, 4, 7, 9) and having his "awake time" and then a nap in between each feed. Our nights still vary but he normally wakes around 3 to eat. I am hoping our nights will continue to stretch out. He does most of his napping in his crib now, except his afternoon nap - that has been mommy/graham time since day 1! I lay on the couch and just let him sleep on me. He doesn't get too much undivided attention so I have really tried to use that as his special time.
Avery and Griffin have continued to be great big siblings. They love to get right up in his face and talk to him. Sometimes they even fight over who he is looking at! They love to hold, hug, kiss, and sing to Graham. He is quite entertained by the 2 of them!
All in all, I am amazed at how the time is flying by. I am excited to continue watching Graham grow and see his personality start to emerge.
