Wow, my baby boy is 2 months old! Seems like only a few days ago that I was amazed he was just 10 days old, then a month and now 2 months! He is growing so much these days and has moved almost exclusively into 3-6 month sized clothing. I had lunch on Friday with a friend from works daughter and her baby is exactly 1 month older than Jonathan. At lunch they looked like twins and JT would have been the bigger of the two! I feel slightly cheated by this as I wanted to have a smaller baby longer but would never EVER complain about that as I know I am so incredibly blessed to have my son big, healthy and strong. God has truly blessed me!
On Saturday we went to Grandma and Grandpa’s for a cookout- Grandpa grilled pork loin and mom made all of the sides. We also played a game of Settlers of Catan with my dad which we all enjoyed. I took lots of pictures of Jonathan for his monthly photo frame. Before dinner, I went out to Babies R Us and Walmart. I was gone for a few hours but most of that time was spent comparing prices on diapers. I am trying to figure out who has the cheapest diapers. I determined Target or Walmart on sale with a coupon buying the smaller packs is the way to go. I almost always have a coupon so that makes them cheaper than the big value box size. Ok, not really going to write about diapers here. While I was out I bought stuff for his Easter basket and his Easter outfit. I am so excited! I totally forgot that I got to be the Easter bunny too.
Sunday was a lazy day. I took a nap with Jonathan while Josh fixed the MythBox (our DVR). We did make it to church for the first time since Jonathan was born. The Vineyard has a Baby Theater so we could sit and watch the service without disturbing others. We will be in the baby Theater for quite awhile:-)
Today is Monday, Jonathan is still waking most nights at 3 or 3:30 but he has now slept 3 nights in his own room in his crib! It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be to transition him to his crib, we just decided to do it one night. We have a video baby monitor which is nice, I can see him anytime I want during the night. Hopefully we will both start sleeping through the night as even when he sleeps I often wake up or want to watch him. I need to get better at this, I go back to work in a little over 2 weeks;-(
Speaking of that…I am still crying every day over the thought of going back. I am not letting that ruin my remaining time with my son and I still know it’s the best thing for all of us. It will just be a very hard transition for me as these types of big changes always are.
We went to Chuck E Cheese today with Gpa, Gma, Susan, Bill Josh’s (my cousin)3 oldest kids and Josie. Jonathan and I did one thing together which drew our picture. He slept through most of it even though he was a “good kid” for 10 days and got 10 free tokens.
