Two Months Old

Elias turned two months old on Friday. Better a late post than not posting at all I suppose! :) I missed out on giving a formal one month update, so I wanted to be sure to get things written down this time. We're all doing great! Elias is such a wonderfully natural addition to our family in every way. Ryan and I are so blessed to be his parents. There have been several moments since he's been home that I just look at him and cry, because I can hardly believe that I get to be his mommy. From eternity past God planned for the three of us to be a family and that's just such an amazing thought. :)

Our boy is 12.1 pounds, and just shy of 22 inches long. That puts him in the 10th percentile for height. haha! He and I will be shorties together! ;) We really started to see more personality come out this month since he is having more awake time now. He is very alert and social. He loves to coo and smile at people when they talk to him, especially in the evening. And much to my delight, he is a total cuddle bug! Our home was pretty full of hugs and kisses before Elias came to us, but it's gone to the next level. lol. We're in a constant state of cuddles. :)

Right now he is eating 3-4 ounces every three hours or so. We're getting longer and longer stretches of sleep at night which is nice. Ryan and I are night owls, so Elias has definitely picked up on that. He's usually down for the night at about 11pm, and he'll sleep till about 8am. That's one of the main questions I get from people so yes, we're sleeping through the night! :)

Anyway, I think that's about it for now. Below are some pictures from his second month of life. :)

I tried to take a nice formal two month photo of him, but he just wasn't cooperating. lol. 
Not gonna lie, we both love napping together. :) We probably sprawl on the couch like this once or twice a week. 
Dinner and a movie - party of three! :)
All smiles at bedtime!
Chatting with Daddy and touching his face. :)
Hanging out with cousin Derek (only three days older).
"Ahh Daddy that tickles!"
First time at the pool. :)
All dressed up for Uncle Aaron and Auntie Alyssa's wedding.
No lack of kisses in our family! :)


  1. These pictures are so adorable! What a sweet family!

  2. SO sweet! He is so precious! Thank you for sharing! I was so excited to see an update! :)

  3. He is so beautiful! Your family is just adorable! I'm so happy for you! I remember thinking that all the pain and heartache of infertility was all worth it because God's plan for my son to be my son was the ultimate reward (we adopted him as an embryo). My son is 6 months old now and each day just gets better and better (hard to believe since even the day he was born I thought I could never be happier!)...I wish you all the joy in the world!

  4. What a cutie!! How old was he when he fit the swim diapers? My baby is 1 month old and we'd love to go swimming...

    1. I just ordered an iPlay swim diaper from Amazon. They're really reasonably priced, and they have a newborn size available. All the reviews say that they run small, so you may want to size up, especially if your baby has chubby legs like mine. :)

  5. He's beautiful. He seems like a happy little guy!

  6. He is so cute and what a beautiful family! Happy two months Elias!

  7. Just so thrilled for you guys! He's adorable and your family is just beautiful.
