Mommy's Little Pumpkin

We had an impromptu family trip to the Arboretum yesterday.  My sister Mandy and her boyfriend Mike came by after they spent the afternoon at the State Fair, and then my parents also came over to have dinner.  We were planning on taking Nate to the Arboretum anyways to get some pumpkin pictures, so we made it a family affair.  We got some cute shots, and I think we started a new tradition!





My cute boys!

2 months old

Nate is two months old!  It's hard to believe our little boy is getting so big!  Nate is doing wonderfully.  He weighs 9 lbs 15.8 oz and is 22 inches long.


At two months, Nate wears size 1 diapers and newborn sized clothing with some 0-3 month sizes thrown in.  He eats about 3-4 oz of breastmilk every 3-4 hours.  Nate is also starting to sleep for longer periods at night, recently with a 4 to 5 hour stretch!  Yay!

Nate got shots for the first time at his 2 month appointment.  This is how everyone felt about that:



He is such a sweet baby.  He loves to cuddle with mom and dad.



Nate loves to suck on his hands and his favorite "toy" is his giraffe wubbanub.  He is obsessed with it!


Nate is more aware and alert, which is very fun.  He will pay attention to you when you talk to him and stares at objects that interest him.  The brown wall in his nursery is his favorite thing to observe while getting a diaper change.  A downside of being more alert: He has started to get startled by the dogs barking.  They'll be best friends in no time though!


Nate loves to coo and is the cutest baby ever!  We love our little bug to pieces!!

Whatcha looking at mom?

Yeah, I'm pretty cute!
