2 cute @ 2 months

Hi handsome!
It's pretty clear that kids grow up fast, but it seems like Kyler is growing at lighting speed. Could be that size wise he is much bigger than Kendall was at this age so he feels older, or maybe just the fact that our life is a little crazy so time is just slipping by and all of a sudden he's 2 months old. I'm always surprised when he does new things because I forget that he's not fresh from the womb any more.

Kyler is really developing a fun personality now that he's having more awake time. He is generally a pretty laid back kid, happy to chill in the bouncer, not too concerned with who is holding him, and fussy mostly when he has a need. He coos and gurgles and even say "hey, hey" from time to time. When he is awake, and calm, he is one smiley guy. This past month he started to giggle in response to us--especially Kendall. SO FUN! There are some times recently, when he's awake and the opposite of calm---but we are hoping it's just a phase, or maybe I need to cut out the coffee :(. Luckily he can be calmed down pretty easily. He's a big spitter-upper these days. We're talking projectile spit up! He generally soaks, and over shoots, the burp rag so that the couch and he and I are also completely wet. Sometimes I think I've cleared it, but later can smell the spit up only to realize it's just on my back---how the heck did that happen!?!

Just like in the womb Kyler is a mover! Especially when he is diaper free, he squirms and kicks and smiles. And even when clothed, he seems to be more wiggly than I remember Kendall being. My favorite action of his is how he kicks just his right leg over and over again like he's fighting off a bad guy. If Kendall is too close he'll "kick" her and she'll exclaim in big sister fashion "Mooo-oom, Kyler's kicking me!" He's recently discovered his hands, mostly his left hand. He brings it to his mouth and is so proud of himself as he happily sucks away. Not that we want to promote a thumb sucker here, but it is sure nice when that provides him some entertainment and I don't have to keep popping the binkie in. He's starting to grab at toys that sister brings to him, and of course he'll sweetly hold him Mommy's hand! 

He is a great sleeper at night, usually 6 hours these days. And 2 nights ago he slept for 8 and a half hours! Too bad I didn't go to bed when he did. Naps, however, are a different story. He seems to be a light sleeper, and there is a lot of noise around these parts during the day. When he is sleeping well for naps it's when he's being held by someone (hope to remedy this soon). I've been getting more and more use out of the Ergo these days, I had a feeling I'd be needing a great carrier!

Kyler we love you so much and we're excited to get to know you better and better.

Ahh! He is so adorable! He and Lucy sound so similar - a match for later down the road for sure ;). I hope he doesn't mind an older (by a week) girl! Love the sweet little noises and smiles in the video - so precious! Enjoy this time with him. Isn't it going by so fast!?

I am so late at commenting, but that will not change how much we love this little guy already! He's so handsome and a perfect little babe in every way!
