2 Months Old!

2 Months Old

It’s amazing that our babies are now 2 months old! What a wild ride it’s been, and it has only been 2 months/8.5 weeks/61 days.

Here are some things that we love about David:

  • The goat noises that David makes when he’s happy.
  • The way that he stretches to the side (making his body into a C-shape) and makes a Popeye face.
  • His snuggles up on our shoulders.
  • How he kicks the Baby Einstein “TV” to turn it on (we like to think it is intentional, but it is probably unintentional).
  • The faces he makes when he is getting burped.
  • His love of his pacifier.
  • The way he instantly stops crying when you pick him up.
  • How he tickles you with his fingers to let you know he loves you.
  • The way he stops and listens to whistling.
  • The way he calms down when he is close to his sister.
  • His sweet, expressive eyes (and eyelashes).
  • The way he has one tear in each eye after screaming uncontrollably.
  • His high-pitched, blood-curdling scream (and how he tightens his fists up near his head when he does this).
  • His sneezes that either end (or start) with a half-sneeze (“Ah…. squeek“)
  • The way that David doesn’t like to be cold – and will let you know it loudly
  • How David still shakes his head from side to side right before latching on
  • That David’s surprise face is still so adorable
  • David raises only one eyebrow like the Benjamin Button Old Man that he is
  • The way that he grasps for me when nursing.
  • That he is ours.

Here are some things that we love about Audrey:

  • The way that she giggles and makes faces (“flirts”) before she poops.
  • How Audrey will save a poop all day and then let it go like a trucker (or a Tucker).
  • Her beautiful, mouth-open smile that lights up her whole face.
  • Playing peek-a-boo and seeing that smile.
  • Her strong grasp of your finger.
  • Her grunts when she is happy.
  • The way she loves looking at lights of any kind.
  • Her fascination with her mobile and its motion.
  • The way she grasps his hand when they are next to each other.
  • Her big, beautiful gray-blue eyes (and eyelashes).
  • The way she gobbles when she eats.
  • The look that she never knows when her next meal will be… right before she latches on
  • The way she says “N-gee” when she is hungry (could it be her first word already?)
  • The way that Audrey prefers to sleep unswaddled… and has for weeks now
  • That Audrey has tunnel vision when it comes to nursing- and she can find her target immediately every time
  • That Audrey looks exactly like me at that age.
  • The amount of drool that comes from her is nothing short of miraculous… and makes me love her even more.
  • How she reaches up for us to hold her
  • That everyone should watch out when she is hungry. She will latch on to everything- wrists, clothes, sweaters, arms, necks, toys… anything!
  • That she is ours.

Here’s where we’ve come so far:
