jake – 2 months



I could hardly take this picture with you because…well…you are SO heavy. You are a chunk. But I love my big, chubby baby so much! I should probably be thanking you for giving my arms such a great workout everyday. The last time you were weighed was at 6 weeks and you were already 13 pounds. I can’t imagine what you weigh now…let’s just say a lot! A few days before you turned two months you started wearing 3-6 month clothes…and you are already filling those out. Sheesh. I can hardly keep up with how fast you are growing.

At two months you are the sweetest little guy. You are so laid back…and easy…and adorable…and fun! You are a cuddle-er and I just love that. I could sit and hold you all day. But since you are the third boy around here that just isn’t happening. Instead we spend most of our days chasing after your two big brothers. You started smiling and cooing at us this month. We all like to try to make you smile. You are probably tired of all the goofy faces we make at you. And even though you smile the biggest for your daddy, it is the sweetest little smile ever.

You take really great naps during the day and usually wake up 1-2 times a night. You are still sleeping in your bassinet and every night I tell you it would be a great day to start sleeping through the night! For some reason you never listen to me. By 7am you are usually wide awake and ready for the day. I am usually not. But even in my sleep deprived state I try to remember what a gift it is to be your mama. Each day, even the sleepy ones, are a gift. I am so thankful I get to spend my days with you and your brothers.

Love, Mama

P.S. A few other things you love…being outside, swinging, car rides, baths, and your paci. You really love your paci now.

  • Donna S. Edwards - After seeing the photos of baby Jake, I understand why you haven’t been blogging…you are busy nursing that baby!!!! I absolutely LUV the photo of Griffin holding up his hands for Daddy to stop. I had forgotten how I learned about Kate until seeing your post about her latest battle. Been praying for her a long time and continue to pray for healing. Your baby is growing so quickly. So if you put him down and get the urge to pick him up again, go for it. You know how quickly they grow up!ReplyCancel
