Paxton at 2 months

Well, this little boy is 2 months old. And I believe it this time. With Holden I was always so surprised with how time seemed to fly by. Maybe I am more prepared for it this time. I'm not sure. Paxton is doing your typical 2 month things. It's so fun to see him smile, coo and talk to us. I love those joyful moments with this guy. He constantly rolls from his tummy to his back. He has been doing this for a week or 2. I put him on his tummy and he pushes off and rolls over. So we don't get alot of tummy time these days.

We had his 2 month appointment 1 week early so we could get it out of the way before the big move. Paxton weighed 12lbs. 3oz. and measured 21.5 inches long. Which is wrong because that is what he was measured at 1 month. I wasn't watching for the measuring, but Jeremy assures me that the nurse didn't pull on and straighten his leg out. What is it about these daddy's that love those big numbers?

Paxton loves to play on his little playmat. He still loves to be held and cuddled. He loves to smile at his big brother when Holden gets in his face (which is often). Those 2 boys are IN LOVE! When Paxton starts crying, Holden runs down the hall for him yelling "bubba! bubba! bubba!" until he arrives at his bassinet or wherever he happens to be. Holden to the rescue all of the time. It's pretty cute. And I can only imagine that this little relationship is going to be a special one as time creeps on.

Goodness Paxton! You have made us a family of 4! You have made Holden a big brother, which has allowed him to learn important lessons at a young age. He is learning to share, to love, to be gentle. You are the second little miracle added to our family tree. I say "second", but it's just as powerful as the first. Your journey to our family is one with God's fingerprints all over it. We are blessed because of you! Thank you God for choosing us for this little life!
Now look at that precious grin! And the chubby belly. Goodness, he's gotten big!

Goodness, he is SO sweet! Looks like he has a great big brother watching out for him too!! :) I am glad you made it to Texas safely and all are feeling well. We definitely need to get all the boys together (you, me, Amanda, Rebecca) for some play-dates. Not sure where you live exactly, but Rebecca is teaching in Keller. I know at one time you were looking there. Anyway, take care and we'll get together when you get settled into Texas life!! :)
