2 months!

Dawson had his 2 month checkup today. He's certainly healthy! He weighs 13lb 2oz and is 24 in. long. Both 90th percentile! Wow. Bennett was 12lb 10oz and 23 1/2 in. at 2 months. (That's why we write all that stuff down, right?? To compare all of our children to each other?) I love this stage for the next few months. Looking back, I think it was the easiest phase of Bennett's entire life so far! They're just so darn content all the time, watching everything around them. He smiles so big at the animals on his bouncy seat and his little play mat (that is when Bennett doesn't steal them all off first!). He's been sleeping great this week. BabyWise came through for me again! :) He's going from 10:30 to 8 now (with me putting his pacifier back in once or twice in the night).
We've had a rough week in our house though. We've all been sick except Dawson. Jon got a really bad case of strep, Bennett had a really nasty cold and cough that turned into a double ear infection (I opted against antibiotics and treated it naturally- let me know if you're curious for more info) and I got Bennett's cold and cough from him. YUCK! I think we're all on the tail-end of it though. And I shouldn't complain. My poor sister caught the flu and had to take care of two kids without her husband's help!


  1. Oh yes, send me an email with your natural remedies. We had luck with a few things with Layla, but have not with Cooper.

  2. hello-

  3. Kasey- I don't know if you'll be checking back here for my response (didn't know how else to get it to you) but here's the link that explains why and what I did! It'll sound crazy at first. Feel free to email me because I have another article I can send, but its a file, not a link. Hope it helps!

  4. i don't want to believe that quinn's sweetness and contentedness is a phase!!! oh please let it last til she's 18!


Please leave your email if you'd like a reply! Thanks for the love.
