You are two months old today litle one! It has gone by in a blink. You are becoming so much fun - every day there is something new. You love music, especially 50's music and most rockabilly - The Beach Boys and The Stray Cats really get you going (you get that from your grandpa and dad). You especially go crazy dancing to "Surfin Safari" i am pretty sure it is your favorite song. We love to play all different kinds of music for you, you even find something funny about "The Macarena"! While "Enya" does nothing for you!
Your "happy" time is the morning - just after your "wake-up feeding" which comes around 7:00 a.m. you spend a good 30-40 minutes smiling, stretching, cooing and just being especially cute! You are such a good boy in the car, and so far we have had good luck taking you out to eat with us and on little adventures. You are mommy's helper during the errands of the day. We get stopped a lot at the grocery store - everyone wants to look at you. One lady even asked me "what aisle did you get him in? I think I might want to pick one up myself!!" Lucky for me, you are one of a kind!
You are starting to sleep longer stretches at night (Thank you Liam!). Some nights you only wake up one time! You also are very strong, and have been holding your head up for longer and longer periods during "tummy time". While we LOVE all of the fun new things you are doing... remember not to grow up too fast okay?
Oh, I can't forget... at your 2 month Dr's appt, you weighed 14 lbs 4 oz, and were almost 24 inches long. You also got your vaccinations, and just cried for a minute (a very tough minute for mommy), but you were a trooper and didn't have any strange reactions or fever or anything like that afterwards.
For your two month birthday, you were still feeling a little under the weather, but we wanted to do something fun, so we took you to the Calabasas Pumpkin Festival. You slept most of the time, but it was a beautiful day, finally it had cooled down from the stretch of triple digit days we had been having. The pumpkin festival was fun, there were toys and games and music and classic cars - I bet next year you will be more interested in all of this stuff - they even had a train ride, we promise you will get to ride it when you are bigger. We wanted to get some good pictures of you by the pumpkins, but you were VERY angry when we woke you up for the photo op... here are a couple - and even though you are mad, you are still our cute lil punkin!
