I can’t believe my baby is 2 months old today. How is that even possible!? It seems like it was just yesterday that we were bringing him home from the hospital and wondering what life would be like with him a part of it! I thought it was about time I finally shared his newborn photos that were taken just a few days after he was born. I have to say that the last two months have not been easy. Cru has had a lot of digestive issues and discomfort since he was born. To most people, I call it colic….but I’m not convinced that’s exactly what it is. After trying everything I could think of, from changing my diet to gas drops to probiotics, I realized that the only thing that would probably help was time. And now, at 2 months, I finally feel like he is turning a corner. There are moments during the day when he is awake and happy, which was never the case just a week ago. He is receptive to my talking and just started to give me the biggest grins and coo’s. It’s so incredibly life giving after weeks of feeling pretty helpless and defeated. I know this is something so many mom’s have had to deal with, I just had no idea how hard it really was. Rylee was an easy baby, so learning how to cope with the constant crying all the while still trying to attend to an attention starved 3 year old has been…..well…..exhausting. I am looking forward to the day when all his tummy troubles are gone and he is the happy baby I know he will be. I feel like I have been getting glimpses of it lately, which is one of the only things getting me through this tough season. Knowing that it will pass and that in time, I will probably forget how hard it was and want to do it all over again ;) That’s the way it’s supposed to work isn’t it?
Anyway, happy two months Cru man. You’ve taught me so much already and I can’t wait to see you grow. I love you more than you’ll ever know.
