Look who's 2 months!!

Happy 2 months to my sweet baby boy! Graham's 2 month check up isn't until the 12th, so I don't have is 2 month stats yet.

Graham, you have made our lives so wonderful since the moment you were born. Our lives have changed so much these past two months, and we can't imagine life without you! You are getting to be more fun everyday and we can't get enough of all the cute things you do. Your "sad face" and "sad lip" are the cutest things in the entire world!! You really know how do lay it on thick for Mommy and Daddy. You have been so smiley lately, especially in the morning. You are such a strong boy, already holding your head up well, and putting all your weight on your legs!! At this rate we are betting you'll be walking by six months! Ha! You have brought so much joy and meaning to our lives, sweet baby. Mommy and Daddy love you more than you could ever know!!

Here are some of the things that Graham is doing this month:
-Smiling when we smile at him
-Nursing for 10 minutes on each side every 2-3 hours
Taking a good long morning nap
Napping randomly throughout the day
Going to bed around 10 p.m. and sleeping and average of 5-6 hours!
Holding his head up pretty well, especially during tummy time
Holding his own weight on his legs if we stand him up on our laps
Grabs handfuls of Mommy's hair when I'm holding him... sometimes Daddy has to help me get him unattached!
Started cooing and talking to us
Looks in our direction when he hears our voices when we enter a room
Some of the things Graham likes right now:
Swinging, and he likes when I switch the direction
Looking at the mobile in his crib and above his swing and loves the sounds his swing and mobile make
Smiles when we tickle his chin or cheeks
Loves being rocked and sung to
Loves his bouncer
Loves his pacifier
Still likes being swaddled at night time
Likes riding in the car and going places
The pool (at least that one time)
Happiest time of day seems to be in the morning, but he is pretty laid-back all the time :)

Some of Graham's dislikes:

-Waking up from a nap hungry
Getting a diaper change and changing clothes
The carseat if we don't leave right away (usually quiets down as soon as we walk out the door :))
Bath time, I think he doesn't like when the water isn't covering him a lot
His crankiest times of day are after lunch and while Chad and I are trying to make/eat our dinner
