I'm liking the challenge, but Benjiboy isn't digging it so much. I skipped out today and yesterday to get things situated and organized for an upcoming trip, and Benjamin has been able to take a good nap both days. On the days I go to exercise, he hardly gets a morning nap and cries throughout my class kind of stressing me out. I know the "routine" with baby number two is more difficult than it was with just one baby, but I don't really like him to cry - at least not as much as he does when I'm there. So, I'm kind of torn right now between sucking it up and continuing the classes or doing what my mama instinct tells me to do - sit it out until he's a little older and rock my baby to sleep in the mornings. Besides, he's only this little once. I'm going to try it again next week. There are other babes his age, so we shall see!
Benjamin is now a little over two months old, and he is full of personality. He's been smiling (on purpose) since he was around 6 weeks old, and he's been laughing a lot more for the past couple of weeks. On September 30, 5 days after his 2 month "birthday," he BELLY LAUGHED hysterically at a silly noise I was making. It was such a highlight - squinted his eyes like his Deddy always does and just let the laughter roll. Too cute. He's a big ol boy, putting on the pounds what seems like daily, and he is already fitting into 3-6 month clothes. 3 month clothes are almost too small at this point. Gosh, don't you just love chunky babies? I could kiss every wrinkle and dimple on his little body! Sweet lil thang.
The next few are from a night at Jazzfest in Forsyth Park. Naomi's getting her groove on!
