My sweet Clyde boy is 2 months old!  

I looked at him the other day and told Derek that I thought he had doubled in size in the last two days.    All of a sudden he just seems so much bigger!  We haven't been to the doctor yet, so I don't know how much he weighs, but I'm really curious to find out.  The biggest difference to me is that his legs don't look scrawny anymore.  He has filled out a lot.

Clyde is in 0-3 month clothes, and still in newborn size diapers.  I tried some of his smallest shoes on his feet the other day, and while they looked absolutely adorable, they are still a bit too big!

Poor boy still seems to be a bit colicky, on and off.  The gas relief drops don't seem to help much, and though we tried probiotic drops, I don't think I was consistent enough for them to make a big difference.  We picked up some gripe water, and that seems to be the thing that helped the most, though we still have some rough days.


Clyde is a wonderful sleeper!  It is such a blessing to have a third baby who sleeps so well.  He has been sleeping through the night (i.e.  going 8 hours without eating) pretty consistently since he was about a month old!  The secret seems to be keeping his room really warm, because if it's too cold he won't sleep well at all.  Occasionally he'll have a rough night where he just won't go to sleep (related to his stomach aches), but most of the time he'll go to bed at 8-9 PM, wake up around 4-5 AM, and then sleep another 2-3 hours.  Not too shabby at all.

Wyatt and Gwen still love Clyde!  Gwen will randomly go up and give him a kiss, and if he loses his pacifier she tries to stuff it back in his mouth.  She likes to pat him on the head too, and always looks so proud of herself when we tell her she's being sweet to Clyde!  Wyatt is also so sweet and gentle with him.  The other day he surprised me by asking to hold Clyde again, so I settled him down on the couch with Clyde on his lap.  After a little while Clyde started getting fussy, so I was going to try to help Wyatt, but Wyatt held up a hand and said "Let me hold him," and then proceeded to try to calm Clyde down with his pacifier.  I thought it was pretty cute that he wanted to take care of Clyde all by himself!


Clyde also started smiling on May 13th!  He had a couple smiles before then, but we weren't sure they were the real thing - but on the 13th, I knew.  He has smiled occasionally over the last month, but in the last week he has been smiling at us so much more!  His smile is just too adorable - he has such cute little cheeks, with amazing dimples!  I love it.


He "talks" to us every now and then, and it's always in such a quiet, sweet way.  That is probably how I would describe his personality so far, quiet and sweet.  He is also a complete snuggle bug, and he loves to be held.  He seems partial to being held by me, but he is starting to be more open about snuggling with other people too!  If he can't have me, Derek is his next pick for sure. It is so cute to see him fall asleep in Derek's arms, but I also secretly love that he often wants me to hold him.

My Little Clyde,

You are growing, Sweet Boy!  I can't believe it's been two months since you joined our family.  You are such a sweet baby, and your smile just lights up the room!  I think if I had to pick two favorite moments from the past month, having you look at me and smile and try to talk to me is definitely one of them!  It's just so adorable, and the little sounds you make are so individual to you.  They literally sound like a "coo", and they make me think you have such a gentle, sweet disposition already.

My other favorite moment is probably just any time you fall asleep in my arms.  I love how you just drape your little arms and legs off to the side and pass out.  Or if you are tucked in instead, I love how you snuggle your nose up against my skin.  I like feeling your soft hair tickling my chin.  

I'm so thankful to have you in my life, sweet baby.  I am so blessed to be your mama.

Love You Always,

Mama
