Milestones: Ezra really started noticing his hands during his second month. He loves to put his fists in his mouth. I believe Ezra's "ideal situation" involves him being naked, on my bed, with the fan turned on, and both fists in his mouth. In fact, we may never need to purchase Ezra toys. His hands are his best buds. Ezra also started drooling a lot this month. When I walk around the house holding him facing out, I usually get a few puddles of saliva on my foot. It's a situation.
Sleeping: Okay, so I don't want to be braggy . . . . but my baby is a total rockstar when it comes to sleeping. Around 7 weeks, Ezra started sleeping through the night. I know, I know. We're blessed.
Best Moment: Bah! So many to choose from. I'm going to cheat and list two . . .
1. Ezra's baby blessing. My family drove over from Colorado to be here and James' family came up from St. George. Ezra was blessed to be a "beacon of happiness" and counseled to emulate the best qualities of his parents. After the blessing, the whole group of us went to Ihop and had a fun breakfast together. ( I, unfortunately, was a ding bat and didn't bring my camera. So . . . just paint yourself a nice mental picture of that.)
2. Grandma Michele comes to visit! My mom stayed with us for a week after Ezra's blessing, and it was SO FUN to have her here. It (literally) was the best week of my life. Ezra loved having his grandma bicycle his legs and having her sing him silly songs. We wish she could just move in with us!
Worst Moment: Hmmmm. I had mastitis around week 5 and was kind of a wreck. I know this whole thing really isn't about me, but I can't really think of anything too worthy of "worst moment" for Ezra. There were a few really fussy days where Ezra rebelled against sleeping during the day, but other than that he was a little dream!
Eating: Ezra ate about every 2-3 hours during day and then sometimes would wake up once during the night. At his 2 month doctor's appointment, Ezra weighted 11.55 pounds and was about 25 inches long. The boy is t a l l .
Here are some pictures of my little peanut taken between his 1st month birthday and 2nd month birthday.
My mom bought these little shoes for Ezra the day we found out his gender.
His fist or wrist is always in his mouth.
Cutest little pumpkin I ever saw!
Totally eating a piece of cake in Ezra's honor. I mean, he'll get it vicariously, right? Happy 2 months, baby boy!
