2 months - Oh my!

Dear Egan,
You are now 2 months old and time is flying by faster than I'd like for sure. You have grown and changed so much in these last 2 months. We learn more about each other every day. You even recognize both your dad's and my voices and follow us with your eyes if we move around the room. You love to be held, but I don't complain about that much. I know there will be a day soon that you won't want a good snuggle so I will enjoy every second. You've started sleeping much better and are getting up less at night which makes things on me much easier. You've even started sleeping in your crib in your room!
You are the slowest eater I've ever seen. If you are in the mood, you can eat in about 30 minutes, but most of the time it is more like an hour. During the day you eat about every three hours and that is from the start of a feeding to the start of the next one. Most of our day is still revolving around you drinking milk.
The faces you make are priceless. I love watching all of them. When you are sad, you get a fat lower lip... and it quivers like crazy. When you are studying your environment, you have an amazing face of wonder. I love it!
You still love studying the black and white pictures on the wall, and you recently found the fan and like to watch it for a few seconds at a time. Nothing really lasts that long. Going to a store or out to eat has become more challenging because you like to watch people and all the action going on around you instead of just sleep like you have done in the past.
I think you are learning how your hands and feet work because you like to swing your arms wildly and kick your legs like crazy. You are getting pretty strong with those as well. You've even started putting a little weight on your legs when we stand you up.
Egan, you are a joy to your mom and dad and we love watching you grow.

(The not so happy to be laying on his own for "so long"... time to pick me up face.)
