Can you believe it has already been 2 months? I wonder if you miss your quiet world inside my tummy? Or do you enjoy everything going on around you?
I am going to tell you what I have learned about you so far. You will NOT sleep in your crib. You sleep in your bouncy chair and we gave up on trying anything else. But I guess technically you do sleep in your crib, because we put your bouncy chair in your crib. You love your swing, 9 times out of 10 that will calm you down. You also love baths and your binky. We have been spending more time outside and when you are actually awake you love looking around and I think you like how the breeze feels.
I lay you under your activity mat but honestly I think you could care less. We also do tummy time and you are indifferent about that too. You are also pretty selfish with your smiles.
You don't skip a meal! In fact I think you add meals. You will eat 5-6 ounces every 2 to 3 hours. Your doctor told us we could try rice again at night. And we did and for a couple of nights you only got up once. Last night you go up a lot more but I am assuming that was a fluke.
This week you started school and you are already a favorite. All of your brother's teachers come visit you every day and they bring Samuel in sometimes too, but he gets a little sad to leave you. The teachers all agree, you look like your Daddy. Mommy was doing pretty good going back to work until today. Today I got a little sad because I caught glance of your picture and couldn't stop looking at it. I just wanted to hold you.
You weight 11 pounds 11 ounces (50%) and are 22 inches long (40%). And you are loved 110%!
Cooper, we love you so much!!!!!!
