Sione' - 2 Months

Dear Bundle Bug,

This last month has been absolutly wonderful. You are 2 months old and time has seemed to go so fast yet so slow at the same time. 2 months of your sweet self. 2 months of absolute wonder and amazement. Everyday that goes by i love you more and more. Nothing could ever make me love you any less.

You had your first Christmas. Although you were barley over a month it was so great to see you with us and enjoy your presence. You got 3 bottles and 5 bibs in your stocking. You also got some really cute clothes. We spent Christmas Eve with your Daddy's side of the family and you ate up the attention. Then we spent Christmas Day with Mommy's side of the family and once again you were just the light of the day.

Not all has been sunshine and roses though. Christmas night your Aunt Chelsie took us to the ER because you started having troubling breathing. Mommy was so scared. We eneded up having to take you back the next day because the ER was really busy and Mommy didnt wanna keep you there longer than needed.

So Mommy and Daddy watched you really close all night and then took you back the next day. You were diagnosed with RSV and admitted for 24 hour observation. That was one of the hardest 24 hours of Mommy and Daddy's life. You looked so pitiful hooked to all those machines and the IV just made Mommy's heart break. It took them 3 tries to get it in and Mommy was glad she sent Daddy with you to have it done instead of me going.

You were released the next day and within a few days you cleared right up like nothing had ever been wrong. You were miserable for a few days but Mommy and Daddy coddled you and made sur eyou had everything you needed and all the love in the world.

You are now smiling all the time. You found your reflection in the mirror on your swing and love to spend time looking, talking, and smiling at yourself. We hold reguar conversations now. I talk to you and say short little phases and you coo and gurgle back at me.

You weigh almost 13 lbs now and have grown about 2 ins since you wer born. You go for your 2 month shots tomorrow and i am so not looking forward to hearing your sad cry when they stick you.

You are eating about 6 ounces every 4 hours now and sometimes would rather play than eat. I can just see your personality grow more with each day. Your eyes open wide now and you recognize faces and voices. Every bit of you just makes me want to eat you up.

We have settled into a good routine now. Your brothers love to play with you now and frequently do what ever they can to make you happy. I just love to see them interact with you and love on you.

It has been another great month and i love you even more if it is even possible.

How scary! I'm glad he's okay, and I don't blame you for not wanting to watch them try to start the IV.
