3 Months of Dayton

My little chunky monkey is 3 months old! He is getting soooo fun! He grins and coos at me constantly - just a little eye contact or a smile is all he needs to return the favor. He is so cute!! He is also sleeping really well at night, usually waking once to eat between 3-5am.  He goes down for the night around 9pm and wakes around 8am. He is a great baby! Happy, content, and loving! I still think his little personality is laid-back and chill. Casey thinks so, too. Very opposite of his sister, who tends to be spunky and entertaining. It's going to be fun seeing their differences and how they get along with each other and with us. I am loving this stage, but also look forward to a few years from now when they are able to play well with each other. :) 

Here's Dayton's 3 month picture!

roll over from tummy to back
squeal with delight!

2 Months of Dayton

Dayton is 2 months old, and I promise it has been the fastest 2 months of my life! Life with 2 kiddos is chaotic and out of control, but also full of so many incredibly beautiful moments that I LOVE. Casey & I are completely smitten with our 2 precious children. I am so thankful that God chose us to be their mommy & daddy. If I could have picked my kids, I would have picked these 2, I promise! :)

Dayton is such a laid-back little boy and his "sweet and mild" demeanor is really starting to show through. He has started doing my favorite infant activity…SMILING!!! I can't get enough.

Dayton's Measurements:
Birth: 7lbs. 6.2oz., 20" long, 13" head and 13" chest
6 days old: 7 lbs. 2.5 oz., 20.5" long
