I had heard about a mythical thing known as an "Easy Baby" -- I thought it was something I would never have. I was wrong.

James is such a sweet boy. He really doesn't cry much. Helen still cries more than he does.  

Lately he's been all smiles. And he's been cooing so much lately. I love talking to him and getting him to respond.

He doesn't really like his tummy time. I keep trying, but he's only content for a few minutes before he starts fussing. 

He's been kicking his legs a ton the past few days. And I'm pretty sure he's been trying to bat at objects.

He takes 3-4 naps a day, one long (3+ hour!) nap, plus a few more 45 minute to 1 hour ones. His nighttime sleep is kind of hit or miss. Sometimes he'll sleep peacefully, but sometimes he's so squirmy! It drives me nuts. But I'm feeling so much stronger and less like a zombie now. He'll sleep 8+ hours total, but he wakes 2-4 times to eat.

He weighed 12 pounds 4 ounces at his 6-week checkup, and we weighed him on April 7th and he was 14 pounds! 

I think this little boy is going to have light hair and blue eyes. 

He still doesn't spit up very much, which is such a blessing!

My cousin threw a baby shower for James on April 1. We got so many cute things and it was so much fun to see everyone.


So there's James' 2-month update!

  2. Love these updates!! I also love the idea of a post birth baby shower (especially for baby #2), my husband is middle eastern and we did this with our first son (in addition to a traditional baby shower). James is just beautiful and so happy you're recovering well!
