Ryan - 2 Months

Dear Ryan,

Today you are 2 months old! Time is flying. Yesterday your mama returned to work, and you came with me! We have lots of tools to make it smooth for both of us -- a bouncy chair, nursing pillow, yoga ball chair, moby wrap, and music. So far, so good! It will be even better when you start to be able to hold and play with toys, but you are not there yet.

You have definitely grown in the last month. Already I have had to take a bunch of the clothes you wore during the first month and pack them away, and will soon need to do that for a second set of clothes (the third set has already been pulled out and washed!). You can hold your head up really, really well, although you are still wobbly when you are tired. A recent discovery has been your hand. This last week you have begun gnawing on it and you seem to like that. You are learning to communicate with your body -- we can tell when you want either Mama or Daddy because you will throw your little body in the direction you want to go.

You love to play. You'll sit on my lap or Daddy's and play faces with us, or laugh when we wiggle your legs and make you run. You especially love to sit in your chair and watch Daddy and Jake wrestle on the bed and it is obvious that you want to join them.

Happy 2 months, Ryan! We are having so much fun watching you change and grow so quickly. Jake is enjoying it, too, and loves to hold you and make you smile.

He is such a handsome boy!

Hedy said...

Aww! He looks SO much like you!

Thanks! And Hedy - yes, I have had many, many people tell me how much Ryan looks like me! Which is nice because when Jake was born, everyone said how much he looked like Mike. So one of each is pretty cool.

I was going to say the same thing -- he's Mama's mini-me!
