Walking on Sunshine

Today was a beautiful day! The sun was out and the temperature was around 60. It was fabulous! We made our way to a park for fresh air and sunshine. We had a picnic, Max enjoyed playing fetch, and Canaan enjoyed the playground.
I tried to get a picture of Canaan holding Jude...this was the best I got. She wasn't too sure about holding him so he's just laying on her.

8 weeks

Jude is already 8 weeks old! His two month appointment is next week. I am very curious how much he weighs as it seems he has grown a lot. He is definitely a good eater and doesn't appear to have the food issues Canaan had early on. I hope that continues.
  • still an easy-going, happy baby - he only gets upset when he has a dirty diaper or is hungry
  • will take a pacifier and enjoys sucking on it but cannot hold onto it for long - I am hoping he either figures it out or will start sucking his thumb soon (I can't remember when Canaan finally discovered her thumb.)
  • wearing 0 to 3 month clothing
  • wearing size 1 Huggies Little Snugglers diapers
  • goes through several outfits each day - I don't remember this happening with Canaan
  • has started smiling which melts our hearts
  • enjoys laying flat to stretch out
  • enjoys the bouncy seat and swing
  • has been sleeping anywhere from 4 to 7 hours at night - I generally only get up with him once during the night.
  • makes a lot of noise, seems to always be grunting or squeaking
  • doesn't stand a chance staying awake in his car seat so far

Canaan at 8 weeks in 2009

Canaan is very sweet to Jude. She makes sure we know when he's crying. She will try to give him the pacifier and gets in his face to say hello. She is not as curious these days when we change his diaper. And generally she leaves him alone and does her own thing.
