Owen 2 months; Hudson 18 months

Oh dear. I am late late late in posting this, but better late than NEVER, right?!

Owen turned 2 months on February 12. Here is the run down:

– Sleeping 7 (occasionally 8) hours at night every 2 or 3 nights, then he’ll be back to every 4-5 hours.

– Eats every 3 hours during the day

– Is awake for 1 hour after he eats then goes back to sleep. He is pretty much like clockwork.

– Poops every 2-3 days

– Has a double ear infection (BOO!!! This is my first experience with a child having an ear infection because Hudson has still never had one. Owen didn’t have any of the classic signs and wasn’t fussy at all, we found it at his well-baby check-up. It wasn’t a very bad one according to our pediatrician, and probably just because he has had so much congestion for so long & his little ears couldn’t drain. It broke my heart all the same.)

– Is such a social baby. He smiles and laughs and coos ALL the time. I love it.

– Adores his brother. Watches him all the time. Will smile GIANT smiles at him.

– Is a super snuggler. He loves to be on your shoulder with his head tucked into your neck. {Bliss}

– Is still sleeping in the pack N play in our room. We’ll kick him out to share with Hudson once he is sleeping a long stretch consistently.

– Weighed 11 lbs 12 oz and I don’t remember how many inches…I’ll update it later. Let’s be honest, if I go find his “report card” I may never finish this post!

Hudson turned 18 months on February 19:

– Sleeps from 6:45-7pm to 7:30-8pm

– Takes one nap from 1-3 (I’ve discovered he really has to go down at 1. If I keep him up later then he won’t sleep his full nap and will be CRANKY) He can stay up until about 2 every once in a while and be ok but not for consecutive days and he has to go to bed on the early side.

– Is still a really good eater for a toddler (I think), he will still LOVE something one day and HATE it the next, but not as often

– Can feed himself with a fork & spoon really well, but usually asks me to feed him about halfway into his meal

– Is talking like crazy. Every day he has new words. They are sounding more & more clear, but still very much toddler speak – not clearly enunciated. Words he says really well:: Mama, Dada, Up, Down, Out, Nana, Papa, Pop. (he says “Grammie” but it sounds like “BeBe”). Owen (“Ahdeen”). Drink. Eat. Airplane (“Ahpay”). Hi. Bye bye. Hudson (“Hutayn”).

He can do names/sounds for: Dog. Cat. Cow. Duck. Pig. Rooster. Snake. Horse. Lion. Squirrel (ha!). Bunny (wrinkles his nose). Monkey. Fish (face).

– Knows his first two catechism questions:: 1) Q: Who made you? A: GOD! (2) Q: What else did God make? A: ALL THINGS!

– Adores all things airplane. We read airplane books. Watch airplane videos on youtube. Sing airplane songs.

– Loves reading. All the sudden, he just can’t get enough. We read and read and read. Often the same 3-5 books…over and over and over and over…and over. (Right now were are especially loving these: Freight Train. That’s Not My Airplane. Planes at the Airport. If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. The Little Mouse, Red Ripe Strawberry, and Big Hungry Bear. From Head to Toe. Brown Bear, Brown Bear. The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Choo Choo. Goodnight Moon.

– Loves to “drive” the car. He & Jordan will go sit in the car and pretend to drive for a long time.

– Loves to be outside (we’re super thankful for the nice weather lately!!)

– Loves to help. With everything. Work outside with Daddy in the garage or yard. He helps me clean and do laundry and cook. He loves to help vacuum and sweep. He helps with Owen (brings me a clean diaper and throws away the dirty ones), he helps bathe him when I put them in the tub together.

– Got 5 teeth in the last month or so (3 molars and 2 other bottom teeth – can’t remember their names). We’re making up for lost time I suppose!

– Is very interested in the potty. We are not doing anything official yet, but I’m starting to make a plan.

– Gives the sweetest hugs & kisses…without being asked. {Melts my heart}

– Is very good about holding our hands when we are out and about. Or when he wants to take us somewhere & show us something. {Love it. That started ~ 15 months when we were really working on coming to us and holding hands without pulling away}

– 23.5 lbs and 32 inches

I am SO SO SO thankful for my precious boys! I just can’t get enough of them. The Lord has blessed us indeed.

I’ll post pics later. I am almost out of battery…but at least I got this done!!
