James is 2 Months!

This little man has stolen my heart. He couldn't be any more of a snuggle bug... or any more of a laid back, easy go-with-the-flow baby. Blessed to be his mama and to wake up every morning to his smiles and coos. He has been so much more vocal over the past month, and definitely is starting to recognize voices by smiling or cooing or turning his attention to voices he recognizes. It is so fun to see these little growth milestones and to see him developing so perfectly.

James is such a big boy too! We had a 6 week check up and at that appointment he was already 11 lbs 12 oz and 23 1/2 inches long. We are most definitely in 3 month clothes and size one diapers. {Why are those clothes size changes so sad to me?! I just felt the same way when caroline switched to 2T clothes. I am a little crazy.}

He nurses like a champ and has been sleeping about 7 hours at night for me. THANK YOU JESUS! whew... I am thankful to feel a little more normal these past couple of weeks after getting more than a couple hours of sleep in a row.

This little man would be the happiest guy to sleep on my chest all day or be worn around the house in our Solly Baby wrap. He adores being warm and close, and I am soaking up every moment. He has taken to a pacifier fairly well and wants it when he is sleepy, but usually spits it out the rest of the time to "talk" and coo at us. LOVE. IT.

We are thankful for the way that you are so perfectly a part of our family of four. It feels like you have always been here, and we love watching you grow so big and strong. We know and are confident that the Lord has big plans for your life, and He will use you in great ways. Mommy and Daddy are thankful to be a part of your story and to be used by God to shape you as you grow. Thank you to you and your sweet sister Caroline for making us smile and for helping us to stop in the busy moments of life to soak in the beauty of our two blessings. You help us to look to God, trust Him more, and appreciate His presence more. We adore you little man.
