Yesterday, we celebrated two months of life with little Henry. We’ve said goodbye to uninterrupted sleep, spit-up free shirts, and getting anywhere on time. But, as all parents will say, what we get in return is more than worth it.
I mean, just look at that face.
Not to mention, the kind of joy that can only come from matching outfits.
But, one of the best things has been watching Henry become more engaged with the world around him. Over these past two months, he has gone from sleeping around the clock and barely opening his eyes to wanting to play (i.e. bat at the birds hanging from his activity mat) and smiling and cooing when we talk to him. For me, the biggest milestone was when he started nursing on both sides with no fussing at around 3 weeks. When he weighed in at 11 lbs 5 oz at his 8 week check up, I couldn’t have been prouder than if he had just mastered a Mozart concerto.
Here’s to life never being the same again!
