What?! 2 Months Already??!

Happy Birthday Charlie! Yep, our little boy is now the ripe old age of 2 months! How time does fly. And mom is already heading back to work next week – sniff sniff : ( It really feels like he just entered the world yesterday!

Well in the two months that Charlie has been on this earth with us we’ve learned soo much about him. He’s really a character! So far we know he is quite an eater and also quite a pooper (takes after his dad in both respects)! His favorite thing to do is make a poopie at the most inappropriate of times (like during a silent prayer at Church)! But we still love him. We’ve also learned that our stinker might be a swimmer one day. He really enjoys lounging in the pool and he especially digs bathtime! He could stay in that bathtub all day if we let him. He’s a water boy just like his pops. He’s already been out on the boat in his spiffy (yet a bit oversized right now) life vest – you’ll see the pics. His dad already has plans to get him up on a wakeboard in another month or two ;)

Sleeping is a bit of a sore subject for mom and dad. Our little monkey is not yet counting sheep like we want him to but it’s getting better day by day. Countless people have told me to hang on and that one day it will just click and he will be sleeping through the night. I’m still hanging – waiting for that glorious day that everyone has been promising me!

So you might be wondering how our once scrawny 5 pound Benjamin Button look-alike has changed in size over the last two months. Well yesterday Charlie had his 2 month check up with the Pediatrician where we learned all his eating has really paid off! He is now 10 lbs 6 oz (wow!), 22 and a quarter inches long (75 percentile!) and he also very much impressed the doc when he rolled over from his tummy onto his back all by himself! He’s a strong little monkey. He’s also turned into quite the handsome young man – a little less Benjamin Buttony and a little more Brad Pitt. To show you how much he’s grown in the last couple of months I’ve posted many (brace yourselves) pictures! I hope you enjoy them and we’ll talk to you all soon!

P.S. Charlie sends lots of sloppy wet kisses!
