Dear BGT

Dear Bennett Grace,

This week you turned two months old. Your Mommy and Daddy can not believe how much you have grown. You are such a joy! Mommy went back to work when you were 8 weeks old and it broke her heart to leave you. During the day she misses you so much and can't wait to get home to see you. During the days you are staying with your Mimi and she loves taking care of you and playing with you all day long. We are going on vacation in a week and can not wait to spend a whole week with you.

Here are a few things you were doing this month.

-You were 11 pounds and 10 ounces and 22 inches long at your doctor's appointment this week.
-You are 30th percentile in height and 60th in weight.
-Your eyes are bright blue and your hair has lightened up to a light brown shade.
-You are currently wearing mostly 0-3 month clothes but you can wear some of your smaller 3-6 month outfits too. You have started to outgrown your newborn clothes which makes Mommy and Daddy both happy and sad. (Happy you are growing but sad that it is going by so quickly!)
-You moved from Newborn to Size One Pampers this month.
-You are still drinking 4 oz of milk but have stretched your feedings out to about 3 hours between feedings.
-At night you usually sleep from 9:30-5
-This month you started crying real tiny baby tears (which breaks Mommy's heart)
-You also started smiling this month! You were doing this a little in the first month but now you smile all the time! Mostly after you have eaten and are laying on your back to have your diaper changed or to relax or when you are sitting in your boppy pillow.
-You are a chatterbox! We aren't quite sure what you are talking about but you sure love it!
-You love your hands. You hold them together when you eat and you suck on them when you are tired or upset.
- You have lots of pacis but you only like them when you are really sleepy and in bed, upset in your car seat or are relaxing in your swing.
-You love to be held, but want someone to walk around carrying you or bouncing you and as soon as we think you are asleep and try to sneak and sit down and wake up and let us know that we are not supposed to be sitting.
-You love to take warm baths.
-You are the spit up queen! You make it a point to leave your mark on everyone who holds you and we have to change your clothes at least 3 or 4 times a day. Good thing you have so many outfits!!
-You went on your first roadtrip to Cincinatti and to your first wedding (Auntie Emily & Tom)
-You took your first dip in the pool on Memorial Day weekend (just your tiny toes!)
-You absolutely love your swing and you love to be swaddled and snuggled.
-Mommy and Daddy got to enjoy their first Mother's and Father's Day with you. We are so happy and proud to be your parents.

We love you more and more each day and we can not wait to watch you continue to grow and develop.

Love Mommy and Daddy
