The Pumpkin Patch

A few weekends ago, we headed to the pumpkin patch at Walden Farm in Nolensville.  It was a great little farm with a corn maze, hayride, petting zoo and a "lawnmower train."  After arriving, Kyle asked if our visit was purely a photo op and I replied, "umm..yes!"  Maybe next year, Will can enjoy some of the activities.

Will at 2 months!

Two months already?  It is going by way, way, way too fast!
We are settling into somewhat of a routine these days....a forced routine, maybe? But, it is nice to have a little bit of predictability in my day.  I have to confess that month two has been much harder than the first month.  Although Will still sleeps quite a bit, he is no longer in that "newborn" phase where he is sleeping 20 hours out of the day.  We've had a handful of nights where he has, actually, slept through the night!  The first time that happened, I woke up in a panic thinking something was wrong with him!  With all of the hardships come the most amazing moments!  Will now smiles ALL of the time.  I can just look at him and he grins the biggest toothless smile you've ever seen.  That, in itself, makes all of the stress go away!  Just when I thought it couldn't get any cuter, Will has started to laugh.  Wow--I've never heard anything so sweet in my life!  

2 month stats:
~weight: 10 lbs 3 oz (16th percentile)
~length:  21 3/4 inches (10th percentile)
~head circumference: 39.4 cm (35th percentile)

At 2 months:

~eating every 3 hours
~settling into the eat, wake, sleep routine
~has slept through the night 5 or 6 times
~only gets up one time per night to eat if he doesn't make it all night
~smiles and coos all of the time!  He even has started laughing!
~has good control of his head and neck
~can lift his head 90 degrees and lift his shoulders off of his activity mat during tummy time
~has started taking good naps in the swing (although he must be asleep when I put him in the swing)
~we are working on going to bed "drowsy"--some nights it works...other nights....yikes!
~has grown enough that he can now wear several outfits which makes for fun dressing up!
~never cries when he is having his diaper changed but hates having his clothes changed!
~took his first road trip to Grammie and Poppy D's house and did well in the car for 3 hours

Mommy's little frat baby!

 Laughing out loud at Mommy!

 Do we really have to do this EVERY month?

 Is this thing going to eat me?

 Sweet baby face!

 Love his precious little feet!

 Daddy's pride and joy!

 Kyle's dream come true!

 Littlest Titan fan! 
 Cheering at the Vandy game!
