Dear Alex, you are two months old...I'm probably going to start to write all of your little updates like this but I honestly can't believe it's time to do this already.
It actually makes my heart ache to think that you're already two months old, time is going too quickly. I'm trying to saviour the newness of you but fear it's disappearing before my very eyes. You're now fully unraveled, rarely sleep all tucked up froggy legged and don't get half as milk drunk as you used to in the very early days.
As I write this you're all curled up on my chest breathing heavily and giving the odd sigh now and again which makes me smile, you seem to be so content. I say curled up on my chest but actually even though you've got your froggy legs on today you actually stretch all the way down to the bottom of my tummy now, getting such a big little boy.
You were weighed a few weeks ago and were over 11lbs! You just be well over 12 by now. Daisy was just 8lb at this point so you're certainly much bigger than she was! You're comfortably in your 0-3 months wardrobe and I fear that it won't be too long before we need to start with the 3-6 months!
Please don't stop the froggy leg position completely just yet, give muma another few weeks at least! I want you to stay my little baby for as long as possible, although you'll always be my baby don't worry just not so little!
You've become so alert this past couple of weeks and you're growing a really placid, smily character. You love to give us big gummy smiles and coo at us when you get eye contact and we talk to you, especially your dad and Daisy! You've got the biggest blue eyes, it's the one feature I don't recognise Daisy in at all. And your eyelashes have the most perfect curl.
People naturally always say who they think you look like and to be honest no one really knows just yet, to me you look just like you, Alex. Your skin is definitely like dadas, so much darker than mine and Daisy's! You were so gorgeously olive skinned when you were born and I wondered if it would go in time but it seems to be staying, you lucky boy. You sometimes look very much like your sister did at your age but other times I can't see any resemblance at all. Only time will tell but I'm happy to wait to find out and enjoy you just like this for now!
You were born with lots of dark hair, which was polka straight in places and stuck up into the air and then almost curly in other parts. You've slowly lost most of it now but it is starting to come through again, not so dark but it still waves when you go in the bath or go swimming. It's so cute!
You had your first set of immunisations this month too and you were so brave. It broke my heart to see the shock flash across your face, your eyes wide, your little bottom lip stick out and our first real tear roll down your cheek and off your little chin.
You went on your first holiday this month, we stayed in a static caravan down on St Ives bay, Cornwall. It was the hottest week of the year so far and you just dosed away in the beach tent in just your nappy most days.
We've taken you swimming a few times, first on your holiday in St Ives but it was a bit chilly in the pool there for you and you weren't too happy to be in there! Since then you've been a few times to the gym we've recently joined and you seem to really enjoy it, kicking your little legs and smiling wide eyed!
Until next time little man, please don't grow too quickly!
