2 Months Old Already!

Can you even believe that it has been two months since Oliver was born?  Time certainly has flown by.  In this time we have been to the doctor more times than I care to count (for everyone in the family), my husband got a vasectomy and we are slowly starting to adjust as a family of 4.

Oliver is the sweetest little man who can instantly make me melt with the slightest smile.  He loves to coo at me and to tell you the truth, I can't get enough of it!  I can't believe how much different this time around is compared to when Dexter was born.  Dexter wasn't colicky nor did he have eczema.  Oliver seems to be affected by my dairy intake so I am cutting back on that (except butter and a little cheese here and there).  No chemicals have touched Oliver's skin (Dexter's either for that matter) because now that I know what raising a baby green is all about, they will never touch him if I have my way.  Even though I do not want Ollie to grow up too fast, I will say that I am looking forward to making his baby food.  I didn't do that with Dexter and I wish I had.  Dexter loves avocados and I am pretty sure Oliver will too.

Someone told me to start taking Oliver's monthly picture with the same object every month so I can tell how big he is growing so here is a picture of Oliver and his new giraffe that Santa brought him!

Look at those chubby legs.  I love looking at them and thinking I MADE THOSE!  Not only did I grow him within me but I sustain and nourish him with my milk.  What a sense of accomplishment breastfeeding is.  It sure can make me appreciative of my body when I am having one of those days.  I am woman, hear me roar!

**Thank you Fibers.com for sending me these onesies, I love them!  I designed them myself and I chose all of the colors/fonts.  Fibers.com makes it easy to create your own t-shirts and onesies.  They even have big brother t-shirts for Dexter!
