Squish is Two Months Old!

My not-so-little Squishy is two months old! He's just the sweetest! Now, first of all, please, let's all take a moment to publicly recognize the fact that this boy was technically 2 months old thirteen days ago. I admit. Having four pretty much sucks up every. single. moment. of life. Seriously. While I do have a ridiculously annoying persistent reminder to take his monthly photo on my iPhone on the 13th of every month, I found myself opting to be reminded the next day, then the next day, then the next day... until I find myself here, almost two weeks past him turning 2 months old, and just over two weeks from him turning 3 months old. #momfail #dontcare

While I'm being honest about my (innumerable) shortcomings, let me acknowledge the completely awful lighting on Squish's 2 month pic below. Mama was tired. Mama had (and still has) 1.2 zillion things on my To Do List. Child chaos encircled me. Editing the image was a luxury of time I could not afford. Did I mention I was tired? And 13 days late in taking the pic in the first place. Y'all. It's terrible. I admit it. Please don't shame me. The good news is, that's one heckuvan adorable baby right there!!


Did I mention it was important to me to be sure his THIGHS made it into the pic? Those thighs! Bigger than my wrist! I'm so not used to having a baby with rolls. I can barely handle the squishiness!

Check out his latest stats...

One Month:

  • Length - 22.25" (91st %ile)
  • Weight - 10 lbs. 15 oz. (65th %ile)

Two Months:

  • Length - 24.5" (96th %ile)
  • Weight - 13 lbs. 3.5 oz. (72nd %ile)
Overall, he's on par with expectations for two month old babies. He's a super awesome eater (see thighs above), and typically has 3-4 hour stretches between feedings. He's worked his way up to several 5-6 hour stretches both during the day and at night, depending on his mood. ;) And he's an excellent sleeper. Essentially he's only up twice during the night. He typically eats around 10 PM or so, and we usually go to bed around midnight or 1 AM. Then Squish wakes up around 3 or 4 AM, and again around 7 AM. I usually roll out of bed around 9 AM. It's a tough life having an uber helpful hubby who works from home a bunch. ;)

Did I mention we're over 3 weeks into our 2017-2018 homeschool year? That's been going AWESOME, but whew is it ever keeping me busy! I'm rolling into my 4th year of homeschooling, and I feel like I'm just now starting to find my groove. I guess that's equates to a big ol' OOPSIES to the past 3 years? Haha! But I'm so on point with the lesson planning, the classroom instruction, the FUN science experiments (major mom points!), and I'm feeling good about where this year will take us. Our Classical Conversations co-op starts next week, and we couldn't be more excited to see our old friends and make new ones! I'm praying that this will be our best year yet!

Now, it's 12:49 AM (almost bedtime!) and I've got a full day of sewing projects lined up for tomorrow, so I'll leave y'all with these adorb snapshots from the GREAT AMERICAN ECLIPSE this past Monday, August 21st:
