2 months old!

Today is Jackson's 2 month birthday (and also Bobby's actual birthday...see previous post!). He is getting bigger and bigger every day. He goes to the doctor on Tuesday, so I'll be sure to post updated stats then. For now, enjoy some pictures:

We love this "little" guy so much! His colic is getting better. He no longer cries every night for hours. He still goes through a fussy period most evenings, but it's usually not too long, and we can get him calmed down eventually. Those weeks of colic were really tough...I wouldn't wish that on anybody! He is very smiley now, and also very talkative. He coos and squeals a lot during his awake time, which is so fun! We joke that he's going to end up talking before Kathryn, because he's so talkative! He really enjoys his swing now (thank goodness!), so he spends lots of time in that throughout the day. However, it has to be on the highest level. He basically has to be moving most of the time to be happy. Whereas Kathryn was content to sit in her bouncy seat or carseat for quite a while, Jackson has little tolerance for either unless they are moving (which is why he likes the swing so much!). We still don't have much of a schedule, as every day is different, but he does seem to have one good long nap period during the afternoon after lunchtime. Sometimes it even coordinates when Kathryn is napping, which is really nice for me when that happens! I'll try to post a video or two of him cooing when I post his Tuesday stats, so stay tuned for that!
