Caleb 2 months

On Thursday, September 6th, Caleb was 2 months old. Isn’t it funny how in newborn world 2 months flies by! You just can’t believe how big they are already, and it feels like just yesterday you brought that sweet baby home….. and yet, at the same time, you can’t really remember life with out them and it feels as if they have been here forever. So weird.

We went to Caleb’s 2 month well check up. Little man,… you are 11 pounds! And you are 22 and 1/4 inches long. Let me tell you I was grinning ear to ear with pride over that news. You see, at this point, I was way done breastfeeding your two big sisters. So the fact that you and me have made it this far and mommy hasn’t supplemented once is kind of a big deal. (Maybe not to some people but this girl is excited!) You are just as healthy as can be! Glory and Praise to our Lord Jesus. πŸ™‚

Since you are only 2 months old you don’t do a whole lot. (But what you DO do excites us very much!) You’re a strong fella, holding your head up, still a little wobbly. You coo at us and get very excited when we talk to you. It is so adorable. You smile A LOT. Started doing that around 5 weeks and haven’t stopped. Unless of course to eat….. or cry. Oh you’re uncontrollably grabbing things now, like all of us girls hair! Umm, ouch. Things you love….. You love to swing, (especially now that we bought batteries for it!) and you love your paci but mainly the green soothie kind. You haven’t taken a liking to any of the cute fun pacifiers yet. You love your bath time, especially getting your hair dried after. You love to be rocked, oh how we love our new glider! You pretty much love anything that involves being held. It’s okay, mommy doesn’t mind and neither do your grandmas or Aunt Nicole. Mr. YOU are a GASSY boy. My goodness. And for whatever reason this makes daddy proud, but we will refrain from ever verbally telling you that. At 2 months old, you have already made your first trip to the beach house. And boy did you love napping to the sound of the waves.Β Image

Oh my sweet boy, I can’t believe you are 2 months old!! I always want to hold you and most of the time I do. πŸ™‚ I know how fast this time will fly and you wont be a baby for long so I’m just gonna hold you till my hearts content. Mommy is so thankful for all of you kiddos. Each one of you is a gift. I really just am so thankful to our Heavenly Father for giving me you three. Three of the greatest gifts ever.

Here you are at 2 months exactly. Such a handsome little guy.

  1. So glad you are delighting in this brief period of infancy in Caleb’s life! Funny, I did the same thing with you! Of course, it stands to reason because with the first one we are too worried about doing everything just right and producing a “perfect specimen” to prove our parenting skills to the world! The second came so quickly on the heels of our first we were still figuring things out and we didn’t have time to really enjoy their babyhood! But we learned our lesson and waited on that third gift! We had matured a little in that wait and the gold nugget we carried away was “enjoy”! Enjoy life, enjoy each stage, each child and above all love!
    So proud of you Kate and so happy for all my grand Graham’s who will benefit their whole life long from love!
    With my love,
    Mommy

  2. Katie, Such a beautiful family you have and what is truly wonderful is that you recognise how precious this time is, how fleeting, and how God is the giver of these precious gifts. So proud of you and love the pictures of your beautiful children. Love, Aunt Darlene

  3. Oh, Kate! How I do enjoy these updates! Such detail & humor. πŸ˜πŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ’š so funny that after your lame homeschool experience, you would become a homeschooler yourself!
    Glad you & Micaila are enjoying it and I’m glad it doesn’t encroach on your enjoying Caleb & Ryann!
    Love you!
