2 Months

Dear Baby Joseph,
Today you are 2 months old. I won't dwell on how fast this past month has gone, because I know I will have that same sentiment every single month that passes. Time is fleeting, and i'm doing my best to enjoy every second of your babyhood.

You are definitely more of a baby now than a newborn. Your cheeks are filling out, and are incredibly kissable. You recognize faces, especially those of your mommy, daddy, and big sister. You are very alert and aware of your surroundings, and you turn your head when you hear a noise. Your smiles are more frequent, and they light up your whole face. Usually you will be staring and staring at one of us, and then out of the blue flash us one of your trademark grins. They never fail to make us smile back at you.

You now sleep for longer stretches at night, which makes mommy very happy! You will go to bed between 9:30 and 10:00, and sleep until 3 or 4. One night you even went all the way to 5:00am! That was fabulous, and I hopped out of bed that morning feeling like I had just slept for a week. Middle of the night feedings are still my favorite way to bond with you. Daddy and Stephanie are asleep, so my focus is 100% on you. Our Christmas tree sparkles in the corner, creating just enough light for me to feed you, but not overstimulating either one of us, making it easier to fall back asleep when you're finished. You are a champ now at going right back into your bassinet for a few hours.

We celebrated your first Thanksgiving at the end of November. You are an amazing blessing in our lives, and we were extra thankful this year that God put you in our lives. We also celebrated your Baptism. We are Catholics, and Baptizing you in the church was an important milestone for our family.

Every day you grow and change a little bit more. And every day my love for you grows more and more, even when I think it's impossible that I could ever love you more than I already do.Your smiles, cuddles and coos are so precious, and always fill my heart to bursting with pride and happiness. I can't begin to tell you the joy you bring to my life. It is my goal to make sure that you always know how very much you are loved, because baby boy, you most definitely are. I love you a million billion!
