Everett | Two Months

Age: two months!

Weight: 15lbs 9oz [Insert monkey covering eyes emoji here] This sweet babe was born a full pound less than his big sister and he has surpassed her 2 month weight by 2 lbs 7oz. 

Likes: bath time, story time with sissy, eating (obviously), the froggy chair, chewing on his hands

Dislikes: tummy time, sleeping through the night, shots

Milestones & Big Moments: smiles, oh his little baby smiles and the cooing :) this is such a sweet stage.

Looking forward to: Our apple orchard mini session with Liz Hough in a few weeks!

It has been a wild month. It is crazy to think that by this point with Natalie, I had been back to work for a couple weeks and this time around I have time left.  While I love the days that big sister is home with us, I especially enjoy our quiet days just the two of us. It is rare and so I try to live in those moments and focus on him.

Three o'clock is the witching hour. He is angry and fussy and mean, It lasts until about 5pm. I want to cry on those days. But when he finally settles down, he is snuggley and sweet. Thankfully, I get plenty of help from his sweet sissy before B gets home. 

We have been working on transitioning Everett to his crib at night which has meant that during the day, I am working on naps in his crib and at night we have tried to have him sleep in his pack n play in our room.  It is hard to keep up with it since he wakes every 1.5-2 hours when he sleeps in the pack n play at night but he will sleep up to 6 hours in the rock n play. And crib naps? Nope. They last all of 18 to 34 minutes. Brutal.   

These weeks fly by so quickly. It's hard to savor this time but I am excited to see what the next month brings :)
