2 Months Old

Back to work...hard to believe maternity leave is behind me and it's back to work already. Last week was my first week back and it went very, very well! There was a part of me that was looking forward to brushing my hair, putting on something other than fleece pants and being amongst the adult world again. And on the flip side, Tony is thoroughly enjoying his time at home alone with Noah. It's been nice to be away for a little during the day and then come home and spend the evening with my baby...I'm always ready to get home and snuggle with him!

Noah had his two month check up at the doctor, and in no uncertain terms, he is definitely a thriving baby. He is now 11 lbs 6 oz and 22 in. long. He had his first round of immunizations, which hurt me more than it hurt him I'm pretty sure. He was fussy for about a day or so and looked so pathetic with his little Dora band-aids on both his little thighs, broke my heart!

Noah's new mission is to suck his thumb, which he has been attempting before, but now, he means business! It is seriously all he does during his awake times, so cute! He just isn't quite coordinated enough yet, but it will come with time, he is determined...I think he may get that characteristic from his mommy...

So, it's Monday and back to the life now has an added component to its predictable routine of Noah eating, playing and we eat, play, sleep, mommy goes to work, only to come back home to eating, playing and sleeping again, just like I never left. Sprinkled with the neverending task of making bottles, bottles and more bottles of course...ah, the rhythm of parenthood.

I'm all smiles!! Aunt Debbie made me this onesie for Christmas!

All tuckered out after a long fifteen minutes of playing...

There's no one snugglier than my daddy!

Look at me all dressed up in my church clothes...what a stud I am!
