Mom to a newborn: 2 months old!

These past two months have been pretty fabulous. Tony and I are getting to know our little guy, and adjusting to life as parents. Parenthood is absolutely a joy- I suppose it helps that our baby can't talk back or run away from us, yet. Easton is growing bigger everyday, I even packed up all of his newborn clothes today.

I have learned a few fabulous things about being a mom in these past two months...

1. Every time my babe sleeps longer than 2 hours at a time, I chalk it up as a happy "fluke." It's extremely disappointing to expect longer sleep and not get it.
2. When Easton cries uncontrolably in the car, all I have to do is put my finger in the palm of his hand and he stops. It brings tears to my eyes every time I do it.
3. Dressing rooms are fabulous places to feed my little guy.
4. Easton is the sweetest, cutest, most lovable baby in the morning. I believe that he behaves so wonderfully as an act of apology for the middle of the night screams.
5. The car seat is the only place that Easton gets sufficient sleep. So we have started to sleep him in his seat at night- sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

6. The doctor said that he has "classic" colic and "classic" acid re-flux. But, he'll grow out of it.
7. The term, "I think it's a phase" instantly makes me feel better. Even if I know the "phase" will probably last a long time.
8. Easton screams "uncontrollably" from 7:30-10pm (give or take), except when other people are around- then he's the perfect baby.
9. He loves to move. He falls asleep almost instantly when I start running or walking with him in the stroller.
10. Easton "coos" when we put him on his back- he talks to us and its the cutest thing in the world!
11. If Easton is crying/screaming and it won't stop- all Tony and I have to do is sing and he almost always stops (except between the hours of 7:30-10). I attribute this to all the singing I did while he was in my belly (Tony sang to my belly quite a bit, too). He especially likes the song "Without You" by lady gaga and "Someone Like You" by Adele :)
12. He looks just like Tony and just like me, all at the same time.
13. There is nothing more amazing than seeing the man you love in the baby you love.

The final thing that I have learned in these last two months...I don't have many pics with Easton, because I'm the one that is taking all the pictures! That, we'll have to remedy...won't we.

I'd be happy to come take more pics of you and the babe! I know how it is wanting to catch every moment and not being in the photo too!

Happy Thanksgiving and thank God for Mr. E!
