Brahm--2 months

Brahm is two months old!  I love to see the changes that occur in the weeks following their birth...(especially the ones involving me sleeping longer...) 

Brahm continues to capture MUCH attention throughout his day--whether he's being held, carefully watched, or talked to.  And having lots of family around over Christmas certainly added to that!  We were so thankful that Joel's family was able to come and meet him.
At two months, Brahm:

*REALLY tries to talk to us.  He moves his mouth and sticks out his tongue in an attempt to voice his opinion.  And we eat it up!  He also smiles so easily, too--during his awake time, it's hard to pull myself away from those cute grins!!!

*has a definite best friend.  He and any ceiling fan hit it off immediately.  In fact, that's how he stays entertained while I get ready in the morning--he talks to the fan in our room!

*eats every 3 hours, almost on the dot.

*is completely unpredictable with sleeping.  (My mom was right--3rd children throw everything off!) ;-)  He HAS slept 7 hours at a time....but also can still wake up every 4 some nights, so we just don't know what to expect.  But thankfully, he continues to go right back to sleep.  (And the grunting has finally *almost* stopped!)

*is getting really good at taking naps.  His first 3 naps of the day are usually nice and long...and then his late-afternoon/evening hours are spent being more awake.  He sits in his swing or on his boppy a lot...and is usually entertained well there.

*is still getting mixed comments on who he looks like.  At first glance, he definitely resembles Oliver--but so many of his features are similar to Lily, as well.  He might just be a perfect mix of both!

We have his two-month appointment this week, so I'll be curious to see how much he weighs, too.  He's definitely filling out and getting those cute chunky legs and arms!
