2 Months Already?!

  Well Mr. Caden is already 2 months old and 3 months is quickly approaching!  It does go by quickly, but being home with him full-time has allowed me to spend plenty of time with this little guy treasuring these memories and making it not feel quite as fast.   I know each day he is changing and growing, but sometimes I have to sit down and look at pictures just to see how much, but look at what a HUGE difference in just a month!

About a week after we hit the 2 month mark, we finally transitioned out of newborn diapers and clothes (I seriously thought he would not have been in them this long, but part of me was sad to see that time end). Truthfully, most of his newborn clothes fit, though several were beginning to get short in the length, but the main issue was getting them over his head.  Definitely got a future genius with that big brain growing!!  This milestone also marked a field trip to the pediatrician!!  Baby boy got several vaccinations (part of me looked forward to this so his little immune system would finally have some protection from all the germs out there).  If all vaccines could be oral, that would have been wonderful for both Caden and I because he had no problems with that one.  The shots however, were a different story with loud crying from Caden (and I didn't like them either).  He was a trooper and recovered quickly afterwards without any side effects (yay!)
    Here are his 2 month stats:
  • Weight = 10 lbs. 6.4 oz. (7%) (he definitely is a little guy!)
  • Height = 23 in. (40%)
  • Head Circumference 15.59 in. (58%)
You are a great baby Caden and spoiling us. Very easy going like your Daddy most of the time. Sometimes you'll start to fuss if you're not getting paid enough attention, but you quickly get us back in line. You love your hands and we are fighting each day to get them out of your mouth, but I feel like this is a battle we are losing.   The past couple weeks you have started smiling more often, which is the absolute best sight!!  The gas related smiles were cute too, but nothing beats a happy baby!! Though diaper changes are not usually your favorite activity, you thoroughly enjoy just chilling on your changing pad. I think it's because you like looking up at the light and ceiling fan, but regardless it gives me a few minutes to get ready in the mornings so I'll go with it!!
     You celebrated your 2 month birthday by going on a church marriage retreat!  Hey you're never too young to learn how to be a great Christian husband!! You had several other baby friends too, so you didn't stick out. I would like to thank you for pooping that Saturday for the first time in a week (yes, the last time this kiddo went #2 was at the start of the week on Sunday). Of course I was not expecting this when I went to change you armed only with a diaper, wipes, and changing pad, but I was thrilled you finally let it out!  Your onesie most definitely got dirty and since your extra clothes were in the meeting room, you strolled back into that session shirtless. You pulled off the look well, but we got a shirt back on you quickly! Your mother learned to take the whole diaper bag with her every time you need to be changed. 
  You are loved dearly sweet boy and we can't wait to see what this next month brings!!
