2 Months

Dear Eliot,

You are two months old!!  It feels like we have known each other forever.  We've had so much fun with our 2AM chats, eating all of our meals together, crying on each other's shoulders, smiling at each other, taking road trips, even being sick at the same time. 

Daddy is so thrilled that you find his jokes and faces hilarious as they're old hat to Mama.  He loves his new audience!  You always find ways to make US laugh though you're not trying. 

You are growing EVERY day and have found a way to outgrow a lot of your clothes in a span of 48 hours.  You are now starting to take 5 oz and love your new cocktail of water, formula, and breastmilk (stirred, not shaken please).   At night you are Mama's little dream as you eat and then go RIGHT back to sleep.  (Thank you, Jesus for answering all those late night prayers.)  Your longest stretch has been 6 hours and we are concentrating on making that 10pm-4am instead of 7:30pm-1:30am but we are not complaining.

Eliot, you are now following us with your eyes as we walk around the room, staring at books when we hold them up for you, getting tickled at the toucan on your bouncy seat, and holding your neck up when we hold you so you don't miss a THING.

Know that we pray for you every day and late at night when Mama and Daddy are exhausted lying in bed, we talk about you, think about you, and wonder what you'll be like in the days, months, and years to come.
Can't wait to see what new things you decide to do next month!
