Chase is 2 months old!

What a difference a month makes!!! I can't believe how much Chase has changed! He has smiled since he was born but now he does this huge open mouth smile. He laughs and looks around at everything. He noticed his mobile in his swing and started batting his toys on his play mat.

He stays awake more like an hour and a half now. He is usually a pretty good napper. Sometimes he struggles with naps. He does pretty good going back to sleep during the night. He just needs to be swaddled up. Grandma showed Chase how to suck his thumb but he isn't coordinated enough to do it on his own. When he is getting tired he tries to get his thumb in his mouth and gets pretty frustrated. He has been able to get it in his mouth a few times on his own when someone is holding him. He'll make some noise when you put him down at night but almost always falls back to sleep. He wakes up 1-2 times a night to eat and sleeps an average of 3-4 hours consecutively at night. Breastfeeding is going a lot better than last month.

Chase was a party animal this month. His Uncle Jeff got married so Aunt Julie is officially an Aunt now. He hung out with his cousin Caelan who is 9 months older than him. He got to meet his other cousins Conner and Holden. Conner is 2 and Holden is 20 days younger than Chase. He also got to visit his grandparents' ranch.

He met his great grandpa Howard. He got to meet a lot of relatives on my side of the family at my cousin's graduation party. He hung out with his cousins Luke and Sam. Luke is 3 1/2 and Sam is 1. He celebrated his first father's day with his dad, grandpas, and uncle!

Can you believe all the other boys Chase gets to play with?! He also has a little friend Carter that is 2 weeks older than him that we go on walks with and to the mom support group.

Chase goes to the doctor on the 7th so we will get an accurate height and weight then. We weighed Chase on our baby scale our friend let us borrow. He was almost 14 pounds. We measured him with a tape measure and he was about 23 inches long. He is wearing 3 month clothes and when we finish this pack of size 1 diapers we will try size 2s.

To all you new moms out there let this be your light at the end of the tunnel! It gets better, I promise! Chase is now the love of my life, such a good baby, and adored by everyone!!!
