Charlie, Two Months Old


Two months and really, it feels like it's been two days. That's the theme of these monthly posts though- where has the time gone, how is this possible, look how big he suddenly is. The usual. And of course this month is no different, although I do think month two is always a little crazy because it's really the first big jump from newborn to actual baby. Suddenly your tiny infant is so much more alert, awake for much longer during the day, and beginning to turn into a smiling, cooing little person.

Charlie is really the biggest sweetheart. He's just beginning to smile, but even when he isn't I swear I can see the kindness in his eyes. He also has a particular look he gets when Hank, Henry or I are trying to make him smile- it's almost like he's thinking "okay guys, I get it. You guys are nerds." And the way he looks at Henry and just grins is one of my most favorite things, ever. He tracks Henry across the room, and as soon as he hears his voice, perks up. This month Charlie is also starting to figure out what his arms and legs do, and it's fun to watch him begin to make the connection. Not quite there, but it's a start. He's also been starting to be a little more vocal, making little coos and sighs. And the very best noise? Definitely the little one he makes after he sneezes. I'll have to share a video of it sometime soon.

All in all these past two months have flown by. Most days wonderful, some days super tough, but I wouldn't trade even a second of it for the world. Even when he wakes up at 2:30am and I'm exhausted, I'm thankful because I know won't be getting up in the middle of the night to change a diaper forever. This is a season, a short one at that, and I never want to rush it by or wish it away. So really, I love it all. The good, the bad, the tough, the really tough- because I will never, ever be here again with my tiny Charlie babe experiencing him as he is right now. 

Happy 2-months, sweet boy.

  1. Yes! Definitely a hint of a smile coming in. My boyfriend's nephew gets photographed every month and it's been such a trip seeing him grow and change. It's only been six months and he's already so different! Can't wait to see Sir Charlie hit those milestones. :)

  3. We've been on the fence about baby #2. Our daughter is 17 months old and I'm just starting to be more open to having a second one (i've reach mom-nesia stage). Your blog has given me hope that I can make it through the newborn stage, once more! Both of your little men are absolutely adorable. Are you happy with the age gap between your two? I'm thinking of waiting just a bit until my daughter is a little older. Close to 2.5 - 3 years old before #2 arrives. (I know, not everything can be planned that intricately). Apart from craziness & busyness, what's the biggest difference between 1 and now 2? Your advice means a lot. Thanks momma!

  15. Oh MY gosh, the post-sneeze, giant sigh of relief! Our Georgia does it too and I probably annoy the junk out of people telling them about how cute I think it is. Fun to hear that other babies do it too :0
