Collins {2 months}

Collins,

You are officially 2 months old.  You are becoming more content but are still a touch high maintenance.  You just like to be close to mama.  I wear you at least once a day and you love to be snuggled up on my chest in the wrap.  I may wear you until I can't physically hold you. ;)

You nurse every 3-4 hours.  You weigh 11 lbs and are 22 inches long.  A good bit smaller than your brothers and sister were at 2 months.  A little peanut but healthy and we are so thankful.  You are wearing 3 months in clothes and size 1 in diapers, although we'll be moving into size 2 pretty soon.

You are starting to sleep so good.  I usually put you down between 9-10 and you'll go 6 hours (even 7 a few times) before you wake up to eat.  Amazing!! Then you eat and fall back asleep pretty quick.  But some nights I hold you for a while before laying you back down.  I'm exhausted but just can't help myself.

You usually stay awake for an hour or so after you eat then are ready to nap.  You nap best in my arms or on your belly.  You aren't crazy about the swing.  You are really starting to like your paci.  You LOVE your mama and give Daddy lots of smiles!  And your siblings are able to keep you entertained.  I imagine you look at them and think you are in a circus.  But they sure love you!!  You'll understand soon enough! ;)

You are flashing us more and more of your gummy smiles and there is nothing better!  You are starting to coo some too and it's precious.

We thank God for you every single day.  Such a honor to be your mommy!
