Two Months

I can't believe Maddox is already two months old!! He has his two month doctor appointment next week, so we will get stat updates then, but I still took a couple of pictures on the actual day. He has been so smiley lately. I love it! he is just too cute. He loves to snuggle his mom and take showers with dad. He loves milk from mom and the bottle and has recently decided if he can't get the binky back in his mouth on his own, he is perfectly happy sucking on his hand, or a few fingers. Night times are fun and going much better. Maddox will fall asleep between eleven and midnight and will sleep for a good five to six hours before needing to eat. When he does finally wake up to eat, he eats for only five to ten minutes, before falling asleep for another three hours. It is marvelous. I feel so rested these days.

On another note, I am returning to work tomorrow. Sad day. But I will only be working three days instead of five. And I won't have to drive fourty minutes anymore! Only a quick ten minute drive. Yay! I'm excited about that, but I will miss the people up in Murray. I loved working with them!

Next week, we are moving to our new apartment and we couldn't be more excited. Plumbing that works. Nice, new hickory cupboards instead of thirty year old smelly ones. A pantry. New neighbors that are more like us, young married couples with young kids instead of the ghetto ones we live next to now. Yay! I could keep going. But I'll stop. I'll take pictures before we move everything in so you can see how great it will be. Well, here are a few smiling shots of the little tike. He is snuggled up in a BYU blanket smiling up at his mom and pop. He loves attention:)

I almost forgot! We met up with our friend Katie last night on Maddox's two month birthday. She has met him several times, but this is the first time to actually hold him. And he loved her! Especially the shiny earrings:)

He has gotten so big. He isn't looking so newborn anymore, which of course means he's just getting cuter and cuter! You are so lucky you have such a good sleeper. Enjoy it! I hope it lasts and only gets better. Good luck with work. I worked for 4 months after Hailey was born and it was tough. It is doable though!

holy cow - two months! that is something i will never, ever get over: how fast my little ones grow up! never, never, never! :)

maddox is so cute - those smiles are adorable!! and i agree with anna - he looks like a powell! in that picture of him smiling in the swing, i think he looks a lot like you.

i think that right about when they hit two months it starts getting so fun - it really is awesome when they start interacting with you and smiling. it makes it all worth it and totally melts your heart. :)

i can't wait to see pictures of your new place! and i'm totally serious about babysitting maddox for you guys while you're moving - call me when you're ready!

oh and p.s., i was going to say that while it is no fun that you have to be away from maddox while you work (plus just be an even busier mama), that in a way, i'm slightly envious of you. :) sometimes i fantasize about working at the bookstore again (or anywhere really).isn't that weird? just somewhere out of the house where i'm just focused on something other than my house and kids for a few hours and getting to see immediate results of my work that don't get messed right up again. ah, counting money, stocking shelves, ringing up customers, weighing fudge. haha. :) so there you go.
