Mason at 2 Months

I cannot believe our baby boy is growing so fast!  In just 2 short months, Mason has changed so much.  He is developing his own little personality, as well as learning new things every day.  

Right now he is smiling, laughing and cooing!  He has been very colicky since about 2 weeks of age, so when we see the smiles and hear the giggles it melts our hearts.  My favorite thing to do right now is to kiss his chubby little cheek as he turns to me to give a big, wet, open-mouthed kiss right back.  Pure love.

He loves laying on his play gym and swatting at toys.  I have many a video of this little man flailing all limbs in excitement.  As far as the colic goes, we've learned that he absolutely loves dancing with dad to music, and being swayed to sleep in front of the range exhaust fan.  Go figure.  Hey, whatever works, right?

Bath time is our favorite.  He is still in his whale bath tub, not fully submerged, but boy does he love to lay there in the warm water and has even started kicking his feet to feel the splashes.

It's so fun to compare this month with last month.

He has filled out so much.  Mason is also starting to hold his head up on his own most of the time.  He still has moments of spastic head bobbing, but for the most part he is getting very good at it.

Life with a newborn is amazing, hard, beautiful, challenging, rewarding, exhausting, and the best time of my life.  I wouldn't trade any of it for anything in the world.  I love this boy more than I ever thought possible.
