Baby monkey is now over two months old. I can't believe how much time has gone by and how much he's changed. It feels like just yesterday that I had him and he's already smiling and talking. He's a very happy baby. He still doesn't really sleep through the night though and that can definitely be wearing on me. Thankfully Mr.IT is great about giving me a night off on the weekends and letting me go to bed earlier on some week nights.

He's definitely a Mommas boy (of course most babies are) his favorite place to sleep is still in my arms and he talks the most to me. Last night I went out for a bit and he was pretty happy and awake while I was gone but Mr.IT said he didn't talk much. When I got home and was holding him he was talking up a storm.

I love that he also will now watch us when we walk away/past him. He'll smile when he sees us even if he was just fussing. He definitely prefers to be awake, he fights sleep and is usually very happy when he wakes up. He's most happy when he's naked though and absolutely loves bath time. We'll have pictures of bathtime uploaded soon. He's also pretty happy when he's getting his diaper changed... he'll grin and laugh even if he was crying and miserable before we started changing him.

He's also turned out to be a very chubby baby. He weighs 14lbs 4oz and has the cutest little budha belly.

I definitely love being a Mom even when I've had very little sleep and just want to crawl into bed. He just has to smile at me and I get a whole new wind of energy.

My baby-momma group is pretty good. I'm not sure I'll be meeting up with any of the girls after but it's nice to get out of the house. I'm still just a little shy and some of them seem to have already clicked or they have a friend in the class already. We'll see how it goes. Either way though it's nice to get out and talk to other Moms even just for a couple hours a week.

Babies awake now... gotta run.

I was coming here to say:


And Callie already did. So...

I just second Callie's "awwww!"

Too damn cute. I'm so glad that you're so happy! Sounds like he's progressing quite well (developmentally speaking)!

Just get him to say "mama" before "dada"! That's the big competition. ;-)

Teach him to say "HURRICANES" It's a hockey thing as you already know. Congrats kiddo!

Sorry if I sound "blah" when I'm on the phone or anything. LOL. I get all nervous, like, "OMGZ, It's my Jellybean on the phone with me!!!!" and then, because of being at work, I also can't talk too loudly and stuff... LOL. So I'm sorry if I was blah.
But I love talking to you! It's such a thrill. LOL. Very different than online!

(The reason I also sort of abruptly got off the phone was because a co-worker had come into my work area and she was taking her time searching around for something, and with it being near the end of my lunch break I needed to go clock in; she's nosy and I know she was trying to figure out who I was talking to... I hate that about people I work with - too nosy!!!).

Have a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Give Jelly-belly a big smooch from me! I'm so glad you're so happy. :-D xo!

That's ok Stephie.. I don't think you sounded blah. I totally understand about the nosy co-worker. Annoying but what can you do. :D

Thank you for phoning though it was great to talk to you... next time I'll let you do more talking. I want to hear how you're doing too.
