Today my son is 2 months old. Already? Seriously? Wow! We’ll take his 2-month photo later today (him in his crib with the elephant) so i don’t have a photo to add to this post, but i wanted to get this stuff documented before i forget.
The past two months have been a crazy roller-coaster ride. I’m slowly "getting the hang" of this motherhood thing, though I still have my days (or hours or minutes) where I feel so clueless about meeting the needs of my son. As difficult as it has been, I love being a mom. I love my son. Just one look into his big blue eyes and my heart melts. One giant open-mouthed smile from him and my heart is filled to overflowing.
I do need to daily remind myself that although he is already two months old, because he was a month early, some of his developmental tasks will come later than "normal" (like sleeping through the night). But whether he is ahead or behind of "usual" developmental milestones, I love him all the same.
