2 Month Update

Carson turned 2 months last week but I didn't get a chance to blog then. I can't believe how fast it is going by! The last 2 months have been great. We are quickly learning how to parent two small children who need different things all hours of the day. Carson is still pretty easy going, like I've said before. He just eats, poops, and sleeps. These days he is starting to interact with us a lot more. He started smiling around 6 weeks old and now he smiles all the time. Pretty much anytime you talk to him he gives you a toothless grin. Its precious. He is starting to "talk" as well. Lots of cooing, gurgling, little squeals. I love it! He seems to be in the best mood when he first wakes up in the morning and wakes me up with his sweet talking. I forgot how sweet it is when they first start all these things. He loves laying under the baby einstein play gym thingy. He is very amused by the lights and music, and of course the mirror.

At his 2 month checkup last week, he weighed in at a wopping 13 lbs 7 oz. He's in the 90th percentile. We don't know what its like having a big baby..Brody was always in like the 20th percentile. So we are loving his rolly polly legs!!

Big brother Brody is being his usual self. He's constantly adding new words to his vocabulary..or at least his version of the words. His new one these days is "muh" which means movie. He recently learned how to say "papa" which is his name for my dad, and "pawpaw" which is what he calls Matt's day. Sometimes that one comes out as "bawpaw" and makes me laugh everytime. Everytime he sees a circle he yells out "ball!!" So he's got the concept. When we start learning shapes it may be hard to convince him that those are called circles and not balls. Right now we are learning animals. He is so good at all his animal noises and pointing out the different animals in his books. I'm not sure what to move on to next. What things can a 20 month old understand right now? Colors? Shapes? I'm not sure that he's ready for numbers and letters...but I have no idea. Education majors..Moms...any suggestions? This morning we were playing with his alphabet puzzle (its the letters with a corresponding picture..A with an Apple, etc that just fit in order on a puzzle board) and I discovered that he has memorized where some of them go. I would hold up the letter and he would point to its correct spot. I was so proud. He doesn't really know that Z is the last letter..he just remembers that the Z with the Zebra go in the last spot. We did the puzzle about 3 times and every time he could tell me where the same 6 or 7 pieces went. Maybe all kids at his age should be able to do this and I just have no idea. I was just so proud of him! He goes to physical therapy this Friday to see a pediatric pt. We're hoping to make some progress on the walking.

Ok, well that's what's going on with our boys. Growing like crazy and changing everyday. Here's a couple pics!

Our sweet baby playing. I couldn't catch a good smile that day.

Brody laughing at momma being silly. His laugh is infectious!

Brody loves doing pull ups..And he's very good at it. He actually pulls himself up..Matt is just holding him. Probably bc he's crawled for so long..his arms are super strong!
