2 months

Dear Future Self,

I hope you are reading this when Turner's little brother or sister (NO, I'm not pregnant) is a couple weeks old and you forget when all the hell stopped. Hopefully knowing that it ends (or changes) is some light at the end of the tunnel.

By six weeks:
breastfeeding was much easier
smiles were easy to get by making faces
neck control was great
scooting across the bed in the middle of the night to find mama
Still not much of a crier or a fusser. Beginning ot realize that this is a GIFT from GOD as friend's babies fuss a TON more.

By seven weeks:
boobs regulated so not so much engorgement or constant spraying across the room
SLEEPING through the night (sleeping at 8, one wake up at 4ish, up at 6 for an hour of play time, then back to sleep till 10 or 11)
Outgrew all of your 3-6 month clothes.
Standing (with assistance of course) and bending knees
bubbling at the mouth

By eight weeks:
regularly sleeping through the night
totally reliable schedule (napping and eating throughout the day, fussy from 5-8, pass out at 8)
SELF SOOTHING to sleep at night or nap times (with pacifier). We can put you down after a feed and some cuddles and you fall asleep by yourself.
constantly shoving your fist in your mouth

Today is your 9 week birthday and we really are starting to get to know you a little better.

Your papa says you'll be a small business owner with a boat, one of those guys that everyone likes :)
