2 months

Gabriel turned two months today!  I cannot believe how fast his "newborn-stage" has passed.  He is definitely out of ALL of his newborn clothes now.  He is smiling at us all the time now, and sleeping more and more every night.  We went for our big 2 month check up today and got the "let him cry it out" talk.  Ugh...I dread this talk.  I keep hoping that there is a better answer.  My husband is totally on board with this, but I cannot imagine laying him down for 10 hours, and not checking on him at all.  So far, the longest he goes at night without waking is 6 hours, which until now, I thought was pretty good.  Please let me know your experiences with this!
Ok, so little Gabriel...You are still nursing like a champ, which I absolutely love.  At your appointment today, you weighed 11 lbs 4 oz (40th %) and were 22.5 inches long (36th %).  Your big sister only weighed 9 lbs 4 oz at her two month check-up, so you are definitely a growing boy!!  I had to go back to work this week, which absolutely broke my heart, but your Daddy has been very good about bringing you up to see me.  And, I am very blessed to have a job that allows me to be home four-five days per week. You are still such a sweet baby and love to cuddle!  Your big sister adores you, and always wants to be your second little mommy.  Please stop growing up so fast!

You already LOVE watching baby-Einstein...

But will stop just long enough to ham it up for the camera! 

Your two-month birthday 

Love the faux-hawk bud! 

Rockin' it out.
