Two months

Today Cole turned two months! And to celebrate he got to go to the doctors and have his first round of shots. Poor little guy.
He weighs in at 12 lbs, 1 oz. We thought he would weigh more with how much he eats, but I'm a little happy he's not growing too fast, I already miss the tiny baby he used to be. He sure has changed a lot in the last 8 weeks. He's so alert now, and he smiles constantly. It's so fun to see him recognize people. He loves his big sister, she can get him to smile more than anyone. He's been colicky since he was a couple weeks old, and that has been challenging! But in the last two weeks he has started to grow out of it and has become a totally different baby. He's so much happier and is so much more mellow. Thank you Cole, mom and dad appreciate that very much :) He has always been a good sleeper, we can usually count on at least 7 or 8 hours straight most nights. Of course now that I've said that, I'm sure we will have a horrible night tonight!

Here he is earlier today when we got home from his appointment. He's starting to suck on his hand to soothe himself just like Allie did when she was a baby. Shortly after she started sucking her thumb and never stopped. We'll see if he follows in her footsteps. This kid will not take a Binky. Allie is a second mommy to Cole. She feels very grown up if we let her hold him while she's standing. Sometime she tries to walk away with him, like we won't notice or something. We're not quite ready for that.Sometimes after Ryan goes to work and before Allie wakes up, Cole hangs out in bed with me :)

Cole has a love/hate relationship with his car seat. Right now he's going through a loving it phase and I'm hoping that does not change anytime soon.
One thing Cole adores? Bath time. It's his favorite thing in the world. He loves the water, which makes Ryan very hopeful that Cole will be the pro-wake boarder he so wants him to be!
Cole now loves his swing!! That only took about 6 weeks. I could sit and hold him all day long

We can't get enough of his smiles! One day he will have a neck, once he's strong enough to hold his head up a little better!

Three days after Cole was born our dear friend Julie took some amazing pictures of him. I was just looking at his birth announcement the other day...I can't believe how time flies, especially during this early stage of their lives. We are thankful for this little one.
