These past two months have flown by! It's amazing how much your life can change in just two months. I feel like every step we take is so much more thoughtful. More importantly, his life has changed so much in just two months. I feel like he's doing something new every day.

My little chunk! I am apparently giving him more than a sufficient amount of food.
He's developing a little personality. His little coos melt my heart and his little pouty face can get him whatever he wants. He's awfully demanding, but follows the screams with the sweetest little smile. He's obsessed with lights, and will not fall asleep if there are pretty lights around him. He likes his tummy time, but would prefer being on his back so that he can see lights and watch the little mobile on his floor mat. All in all, he's a sweet baby, with chunky cheeks and Michelin man legs.. the perfect cuddle bug.
I know the favorite question is, "Are you getting any sleep?" Not enough. He does about four hours on his own in a Rock 'N Play. Then, it's every two hours on the dot. Scott and I were adamant that our baby was never going to sleep with us. But, alas, he cuddles right up and gets his way. Unfortunately, he won't sleep on his own in a bassinet or anything flat, but we're going to keep trying. For now, this works and is what's getting us enough sleep.
I go back to work tomorrow, which is a whole different set of emotions. To be fair, I picked the right career for motherhood. With holiday vacations, mid-winter break, and "cold days," I was able to gain an extra 3 weeks with my little guy (America's maternity leave policy makes me livid). But, it's time to face reality. I'm going to have to share him... I hope they can find him as sweet as we do.
