Two Months Old!

I can't believe that Jett is already two months old! He is doing great! He is such a strong boy, holding his head up and wanting to always be standing on those tiny little legs! He is doing pretty good at night, at least for the past few days! He typically goes to bed around 9:30, wakes up around 3 or 4 to eat, but really quickly, and then goes right back to sleep until about 7:30 or so! I can totally handle that! As long as Addie will sleep, we're good to go! He likes to eat a lot! During the day every two to three hours, and then in the evenings we still sometimes have feeding marathons. But, I have heard that is how little boys are! We had his 2 month appointment on Monday with Dr. Terk, and he said everything looks great! I no longer take for granted appointments where everything is ok! He is 11 lbs and 10 ozs which puts him in the 50th percentile. And he is 24 inches long which puts him in the 75 percentile. His head circumference is in the 90th percentile, my kids just have big heads! :) Dr. Terk also likes to say his name and do a manly pose when he says it! It is pretty hilarious, I'll have to see if he'll let me get a picture of that! Jett is just a joy, and I think he is going to have a pretty laid back personality, besides the part where he wants to be held all of the time. He is my little cuddle bug! And then, I just had to post this picture, too cute!

I look at these children, and I am just in awe that they are actually mine! I am thankful that God has chosen Adam and I to take care of these little ones! Right now, I just have to trust Him to give me the strength and peace to not be in constant worry over them. Do you other moms ever feel like that? His plan is perfect, not mine, I have to keep reminding myself of that. Isaiah 55:8-9 says "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, " says the Lord. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts." God, help me to always remember that.

Here are some recent pics!
This is how Addie "holds" Jett
and yes her shirt is on backwards and inside out, she likes to take her clothes off and put them on all by herself
Is that the cutest, tinyest little bottom or what?!?

Hoping he's a mama's boy! ;)
What a stud!
Jett joined us for story time

It didn't take long before she pulled that bear from beneath him!

She rarely keeps all of her clothes on

So, I am finally posting after a whole month!!! Being a mom of two takes quite a bit more time, but I love it! Jett is doing so great, he is 7 weeks old today! He is growing so quickly! He started smiling at us about two weeks ago, talk about something that will melt your heart, it is so sweet! On a normal night, he is waking up only once, which is great with me! Addie is such a great big sister. She loves her baby brother so much. We try to have special Mommy/Addie time while Jett is napping, so that she gets my full attention. And on Daddy's day off, she just can't get enough of us! She is so precious. I am so grateful to God for giving us these precious gifts. And, I am finally starting to feel a little more like myself again. Those pregnancy hormones are rough! I have got to be better about taking more pictures! Here are some of what I have captured over the last couple of weeks.
