James: 2 months

James is 2 months old!

I actually can’t believe it’s only been two months. It feels like he has always been here!

James is such a sweet little guy. His tummy troubles seem to be getting better, which I am so thankful for (his digestive system is growing up! :) He’s pretty good at just going with the flow and actually seems to prefer being out and about than being at home.

James smiled for the first time this month (6 weeks). His smiles are so darn cute. They kind of creep up on him and then turn into full-blown, open mouth smiles. I haven’t been able to capture it on camera yet, but hopefully I will soon.

June told James he could hold Cinderella and then put the figurine on his hand :)

James also found his hands this month. He likes to suck on them when he can coordinate it. I wonder if he’ll be a thumb sucker?  We are still trying the pacifier with him too, but only Paul and Mimi (Paul’s mom) have been successful at giving it to him. When he finally takes it, he likes it, but he has a hard time keeping it in his mouth. And if I try to give it to him, he freaks out!

James has been a sleeping champ lately! He takes naps in his swing or car seat (when we’re out) and often takes 3-4 hour naps. Sometimes I even have to wake him up to feed him. At night he sleeps in the Rock n Play. He usually goes down around 9pm, wakes up around 3am and 6am, then is up for the day at 9am. Sometimes in the morning I nurse him lying down in the bed with me. When he's done eating he puts his head on my chest and kind of hugs me with his arms and falls asleep like that. It's my favorite thing in the world! 

This month's firsts:

*First Halloween

June was a cowgirl and James was a horse. He HATED his hat and screamed every time I put it on his head, but once he fell asleep, I was able to sneak it on. 

*First time meeting Aunt Sara, Uncle Jeff, and cousin Helen

*First time meeting Great Grammy & G-Daddy
