2 month and 2 year pics

ever since parker was a baby i took a picture of him in this chair next to the FAO Schwartz bear to see how he grew each month. now it's connor's turn!

here is connor at 2 months:

parker at 2 years and connor at 2 months:

and parker with the you can see he's now quite bigger than the bear :-)


connor's 2 month stats

connor had his two month check up monday and weighed in at 11 pounds 3 ounces and 24 inches long. he's in the 50% for weight and 90% for height! future bball player??? he also got a round of shots and screamed his little head off which i think is pretty funny. yes i felt bad because my baby was hurting BUT he hardly ever cries so it's just funny to me when screams like that! praise god that he's doing well and over the virus from last week!

connor is 2 months!

dear connor,

yesterday you turned 2 months old! where did my little newborn go??? each day, week, month that goes by at this point is so bittersweet. it's so exciting to see you grow and learn new things each day, but oh how i'll miss your squishy newborn skin, the sweet little cries and grunts you make and your complete dependence on me.......

this past month you've become quite the smiler! you smile all the time and try and "talk" to me. i can see you squealing with delight inside and soon enough you'll be squealing and laughing on the outside too. you are so cute when you entertain yourself in the pac n play playing with your hand or looking at your bears. you are such a sweet little thing. i often call you "sweetness" because you just are! you are a very content and happy baby. you just go with the flow....every once in a while if you are REALLY hungry, you prove to us that you've got quite a set of lungs, but those days are few and far between. some days your daddy and i try and remember if you cried at all the whole day! we just love you so very much and parker loves you too. it's amazing how much he shares everything with you from his toys and sippy cups to his most prized possession his blankie. you have really taken to parker as you always look toward his voice and smile when you see him. i pray that you two will be best friends. you are getting really good at holding your head up for long periods of time and you're doing great sleeping. you started sleeping through the night during week 7 going from 9:30pm to 7:15 am!!! last week you scared us all and caught some virus and fought a high fever for a few days. praise God that it wasn't anything serious like meningitis, but we were definitely worried as you were not yourself. luckily all you had was a fever and when that finally went away you were back to normal! we're also thankful that the reflux has toned down and we were able to stop your meds a week ago.

connor, we love you so very much and feel so blessed to have you in our family. we are so excited to grow with you and look forward to each and every day we spend together!

lots of love,

beach vacation

obviously i'm still playing blog catch up since we've been back for several weeks now, but in early august close to when connor hit the one month mark we made our way to bethany beach DE for our annual beach trip. although the drive is long (even longer with a nursing newborn, terrential rain, and an accident shutting down the tunnel)it is well worth it. my parents have a gorgeous condo overlooking the sound and minutes from the beach. we love going there every year and this year was no exception. parker had a blast at the beach playing in his pool and in the sand, although he was afraid of the ocean. connor enjoyed sleeping in his tent and brandon and i enjoyed free help from my parents entertaining the munchkins! i took a ton of pics i'm still sorting through, but here a few for now:
