Since it gets dark so early at night it is hard for us to have time to be outside as a family. The other night Thomas went over to my parents house and picked up some wood so we could make a fire (in their fire ring.... yeah we need to get our own...) We had fun sitting around the fire and roasting marshmallows. Jonathan sang a bunch of songs that he made up. David enjoyed being snuggled up! :0)

On Thursday David had his 2 month doctors visit. He weighs 11 pounds and is doing great! Poor buddy had to get shots and did really well considering the fact that I couldn't comfort him as much as I would like since his brother was throwing a fit in the office! It is hard to imagine that 2 months ago he was still in my belly he has grown and changed so much.
He continues to be a snuggle bug and loves to be held and snuggled up in the sling. He loves his bouncy seat and has started to reach out to the toys that hang from it. He also enjoys spending time on his play mat and watching the toys on it. He has the greatest smile and has started to do a little chuckle kind of noise along with his other coos and grunts. He likes to ride in the car as long as it is moving and watches out the window. He can roll over both ways from his tummy to his back. He also loves to stare at the ceiling fan, blinds, and stripes on his bumper in his crib. At around 7 weeks I went back to work part time and he did really well. He took his bottles like a champ and even took a really long nap one day. He is sleeping at night but not through the night waking up about every 4 hours to eat. He is our little gassy man too.... most of the time his fussiness can be explained shortly by some toots! :0) I have been able to pinpoint some foods that don't work for him and try to avoid them. He loves to take a bath and we had made it one of his nightly rituals. This month he took his first trip to Havasu and did awesome!
