dear baby z: 2 month milestones

Dear Baby Z,

You're almost 2 1/2 months now and I already wish we could go back in time to your "birth"day.  It seems like time is just flying by and I'm doing everything to grasp onto every moment and just cherish them.  As I look back at pictures of you in the hospital right after you were born, I still can't believe how much bigger you are now and you're only 2 months old!

At the hospital

It's also amazing how much two short months can show so many changes - your personality is coming out, you can recognize your daddy, sister, brother and my voices {and when you do you have the most beautiful smile!  I love watching you smile}, you've slept through the night for the past two nights {I hope I didn't jinx your streak}, and you are the most mellow, sweet baby - just like your brother {unless you're hungry - then it's go time}.

Your sweet smile
 You are also a fighter.  Although tiny at birth, you attempted to roll over from your back to your stomach last week and succeeded!  Look how happy you were when you realized what you could do {above}!

I'm so incredibly proud of you and you're only 2 months old.  Imagine how I'm going to be 10 years down the road.  Yup, I'll be one of those moms!

I love you Z!



  1. What a sweet tribute to your baby. The time does tick by so fast. So much growing and change happens in the first year. I can't believe my baby is 7 months today. Loving being a mama even more the second time around.

    1. Thanks mama! I'm loving it more too - not that I didn't love it the first time around. It's nice to know what to expect and I'm also having a blast with Lil J {I'm sure you are with your son too}.

  2. Love love love that you're writing letters to your children! Letter writing is becoming a lost art and we're bringing it back =)

    1. Thank you so much Amy! I can't wait to see my kids' reactions when they're old enough to read these letters :)
