Nathan's Monthly Newsletter: Month Two

Dear Nathan,

Well this weekend you turned 2 months old and I am looking forward to the rest of your life. Not that the first two months are not something to look forward to, but they are defintly not my favorite stage. In the last couple of weeks you have started to do some things that have rewards for the rest of your family.

The first one is smiling. I can't believe how much you smile. Before eating (as long as you are not crying from being so hungry) and especially after eating. Even if you are tired and trying to go to sleep you will still give smiles to anyone who smiles at you. This is such a great thing to watch. It's so nice to see you interacting with people.

The other thing that I have really noticed this month is how you are starting to get to know the voices of your immediate family. When Lucas comes into the room you turn and look for him. It is cool this time to have the extra person for you to recognize. Also with your dad working from home you hear his voice lots too. Like I said, it's cool to see you recongizing the voices and faces of your family.

Sleep is going well, you sleep in the night, take naps in the day. We don't have you on a perfect schedule yet, but for the most part when it gets dark you are sleeping and when it's light you like to be awake and nap. At night time you will go every 3 to 4 hours with eating (although last night you went for 51/2 hours) and during the day every 2 1/2 to 3 hours with eating. Took you to the doctor today and you weight 12 pounds 9 onces. Still the the 75% for weight and 90% for height.

Those smiles are really the best thing in the world. It is amazing how I can be so in love with someone.

love mommy.

I emailed the first picture of Nathan to myself at work so I could use it as the wallpaper on my computer. It totally fills the screen and is SO cute that every time I see him I just want to nibble those chubby cheeks!

Thank you so much...for pictures, videos, stories and monthly newsletters. They're priceless...
