Milestones & Mr. Monkey: 2 Months

This month we were able to capture some of Palmer's new tricks during our photo session with Mr. Monkey- everytime I look at these pictures, it just makes me smile- we're loving life with our little monkey!


  • Started giving us the most beautiful toothless grin with some cooing too! Probably our favorite milestone this month.
  • Still very laid back & mellow, just like his daddy.
  • His favorite place to hang-out is his swing.
  • His new found friend is Mr. Fist- he'll just stare at it with such intensity!
  • Started playing with his tongue more and more- he loves to stick it out and rub it across his lips.
  • Started having tummy time more and more and he's getting used to it.
  • Loves to be swaddled real tight at night and a little looser during naps.
  • Still likes the paci but he has some days he really wants it & others he could care less.
  • Takes a bottle great when he needs to.
  • Still eats about every 3 hours during the day and started sleeping 8-9 hour stretches at night.
  • Loves to listen to music while we play in his room- his favorite is Journey's Rock-A-Bye Baby album.
  • We don't have a rigid nap schedule, but we stick to the eat, play, sleep cycle.
  • Becoming more and more alert during the day- sometimes skipping a naptime!
  • In his first two months we've ventured out a little: Hilton Head, St. Simon's, & Vidalia. He did really great in stretches and not so great in other stretches:)
  • We started taking him to church at 5 weeks & he started staying in the nursery at 8 weeks.


Meet Mr. Fist

There's the tongue!

"Ok mom, you're really not funny anymore!"

  4. It was so great to see you the other day and finally meet Palmer - what a precious boy you have. Oh, how I wish you had been able to meet Nora! Next time! And thank you so much for the diapers; we're about to run out. Nora will put them to good use. :) I love keeping up with sweet Palmer this way!
