Let's Recap....

It took me a while, but I made a chart of my pregnancy week by week...I can't figure out how to get the photos to show up bigger....anyone else out there use a specific program to do this?? (as you can tell, I am not exactly computer savy) 

 But, here it is...my pregnancy week by week!

2 Months!!!

Can you believe it's been 2 months since this little dude joined our family?? 


 What are you up to at 2 months, Gibson???
* You are now up to about 14 pounds (not sure about your length)...you're obviously a good eater. 100% percentile for height and weight! BIG boy!!
* You are in 3-6 months clothes now...and at the rate you are growing, you will be out of those shortly!!!
*You are getting a little better about your baths....you still aren't crazy about them, but you have gone from screaming bloody murder, to waiting until you are getting dried off to scream! haha.
*You are still a little night owl but s-l-o-w-l-y you are settling into a routine...
*You sleep anywhere from 4-6 hours at a time at night, but still not sleeping through the night.

*You have a reflux issue going on right now...and it causes you to wake up in the middle of your sleep...spitting up in the middle of your sleep makes for a cranky baby sometimes. Doctor's appointment Wednesday to see if we can take care of that.
*You starting smiling at about 5 weeks old...and oh my, you are one smiley little boy...and you have started babbling...your favorite word is "Ah-goo"  ;-)
*You are happiest in the morning....and an excellent cat-napper....hoping we can work on getting in longer naps!!
*You still have no interest in pacifiers....I've bought every type they make and you gag when I try to get you to take one....you are trying to find your thumb, and I think once you do find it, you will sleep better and longer!
*You love to be held and rocked...and when you are put down in your swing or bouncy seat, you cry for someone to pick you up and hold you. And how do you know whether we are sitting or standing when we hold you?? If we stand up you are happy...we sit down, you cry!!! Silly baby! ;-)
*You are a pretty laid back kid. Only fussy when you are hungry or sleepy....no crying uncontrollably for hours on end. (Thank you, Lord)
We have had such a FUN 2 months with you...your sisters are over the moon in love with you (and so are Mom and Dad). What a wonderful addition you have been to our family!! I didn't think I had enough room in my heart for a third baby, but you are proof that you can love the third baby as much as the first and second ones. My cup runneth over! ;-)
We love you, sweet Gibson!
