Yes, finally! Dear Owen. After 2 months, this is your first post. So, welcome!! Mommy is very busy and tired, but I want to try and capture this first year for you. Here is what you should know about yourself.
You are an EASY baby! You are already sleeping well at night, you only wake up once, sometimes twice. You go to sleep on your own-OK, sometimes we use the swing, but if we put you down in your pack and play at night, you go to sleep! You eat well, a little too well, you already weigh 14 pounds and 9 ounces!! And you are wearing 6 month clothing at 2 months old. You don't cry a lot (although you have grumpy periods in the evening and first thing in the morning).
You are an EASY baby, but you are a GRUMPY baby :) You always have this scowl on your face, it's quite adorable. You have been smiling more and more, and if we can manage to make you happy you will laugh with us occasionally, but mostly, you are a grump. Thank goodness you are the second child, because it doesn't bother us at all. We just laugh and try to cheer you up. I wonder if its all the competing for attention that gets you upset.
You do love your brother (I don't know why, he is way too rough with you and wakes you up all the time). You like to watch what he is doing, and are often happier when he is around.
It's so much fun to have you around. Mommy and Daddy are much more relaxed with you, as we have done this before so we aren't new parents. And although you get a little less attention than you might like, as we have to divide our attention between two children now, you get plenty of loving from your big brother.
Things you like: You are just starting to notice things- you love the mobile attached to the swing, and you love to look at yourself in the mirror on your bouncy seat.
~Love you, Mommy
