I'm 2 Months Old!

Hi!  My name is Will and I'm 2 months old!  I've been hanging out with my parents for the last two months and have finally been able to get out of the house and see lots of things.  Before my two month mark, the doctor said I had to stay inside.  I know this because I was only out to go to the doctor!  At my last appointment, a few weeks ago, I weighed 12lbs 12 oz so by now I probably weigh around 14 lbs.  I'll find out this week for my 2 month checkup and vaccinations (whatever those are).  All I know is that mama wouldn't take me to this next appointment on her own, for some reason she said daddy HAD to come to.  So we'll see.

These past two months have been a lot of fun.  I've learned a lot of new things.  I have a mama who loves me tons because she is always with me.  We eat together all the time, which is usually every 1.5 hours during the day.  At night I like to mix it up.  We eat around 9:30pm and then sleep for 3-4 hours, but after that we get up to eat every 2 hours.  I think its fun but usually around 6am, mom is tired of all the fun and lets dad get up with me to feed me a bottle.  It's our manly time.  But like I said I like to mix things up.  For example, last night we didn't have a long nap to start off the night, instead we were up every 2 hours or less.  But the night before, we did two stretches of sleeping for 4 hours!  This all adds up to me growing nice and strong.  See...




I can sit up much better and hold my head up lots.  I like to play in a lot of different places, in my swing and bouncer and playmat.
I play on my jungle mat for about 30 mins a couple times a day.  I've just recently noticed that my toys rattle because "I'm" the one who is hitting them.  I got so excited one time that I rock and rolled onto my side.  It was fun!  I also got a new toy just yesterday.  My dad's work held a baby shower for me.  It was supposed to happen the Friday before I was due but since I came early they rescheduled it.  I was able to go and I met a lot of cool people.  Here's my new jumperoo...

My toes don't quite touch the ground yet though.

I like all my toys and hope to get more as soon as I'm able to play with them.  Mama says I'm the kind of kid that needs to be constantly stimulated.  Until then I've got my playmat, swing, bouncer, new jumperoo, and of course my friend the ceiling fan.

I'm smiling lots these days.  Life is good!  Dad and Mama say I'm a lil stinker though.  I think its because I smile at just the right times.  Not when the camera is pointed at me of course.  I've also started cooing and doing a few screeching.  Hopefully I'll learn how to giggle soon...that will be sooooo cool.

On the diaper front, I've learned some cool tricks these past two months.  At first I would make dirty diapers all day long, then I discovered diaper rash is not so much fun.  A few weeks ago I learned how to make just one dirty diaper a day and that helped.  Then just this past week, I've learned how to do blowouts!  I love it and smile tons after pooping, but then mama or dad scoop me up and run me to the changing table.  They have to change my diaper and my clothes!  So far I'm up to 5 blowouts and looking forward to many more.

Since I've hit the 8 week mark, I'm now allowed to go into public.  I had already gone to Auntie Amanda's house to visit Cousin Jackson.  I went to my friend Kinsley's house, my mama worked with her mama before.  But that wasn't considered public.  Since then I've gone to Church, Target, Kohl's (which I slept through so maybe that doesn't count), Dad's work, Mama's work, and even had lunch at Jason's Deli.  I love the stroller thing that I get wheeled around in! But it HAS to keep moving.  I can't wait to see where we go next! 

I'm still getting to do a lot of things for the first time.  Last weekend we celebrated Easter!  That looks like it'll be even more fun next year....everyone else ate my candy this year.  I got a special Easter outfit and hunted for eggs and everything!

Look what my mama made me do!

Dad helped me look for eggs...and even Bo too.

I got lots of goodies!  And mama even found Easter eggs that look like baseballs!

Aren't I cute?
Next up I'm looking forward to spending my first Mother's Day with my mama and grandma's.  I can't wait to turn 3 months old!
