Mommy Diary Take Two: 2 Months

February 20, 2014


Dear Asher,

This month you have changed so terribly much. You are awake for longer and longer stretches, and oh squidge you are so sweet. You spend all your time smiling at us and you're starting to make "conversation"; you love to talk to Daddy every evening while Mommy showers and he gets you in your PJs. When you smile your whole face lights up and even your little body gets in on the cuteness. I just want to keep you this tiny some days; then others make me so curious what kind of little boy you will grow into.

You love your brother already. Even when he gets too close and scares you. You watch him all day and often smile your best smiles at him when he is talking to you and (as he likes to do) holding your hand. 

You've blown through two big wonder weeks this month and though they were tough, you did wonderfully well after a few stressful days of crying, not wanting to be put down ever, and constant cuddles. We kind of forgot how rough these big developmental leaps are on all of us, but luckily you just swam through them without too much of a blip. It is interesting that during these two jumps you start hating your car seat, then go back to being fine again right after. Quirky little dude. 

Everyone just adores you. You're so chunky and squishy and wonderful. You came in at a hefty 15 pounds 3 ounces and 23 inches long at your checkup, 97th and 75th percentiles respectively. I love every inch and roll of you. My tank. Keep up the cuteness my dearest.

Love,
Mommy
