Growing like Weeds!

Jett is two months today! Hooray!

Next time I decide to have a baby...somebody tell me that it gets WAY better by 2 months, because apparently I forgot with Brody.

These last 2 weeks have been amazing. Jett is on a wonderful schedule.

Wakes up 6-7am, eats and is awake for 1 hour

Naps for 3 hours, then eats

awake for 3 hours with 1 cat nap in between, eats.

Naps for 3-4 hours and wakes up between 5-6

awake for 2 1/2 hours, eats

Goes to bed between 8-9pm

Sleeps ALL NIGHT! booya!

This schedule of his really allows me to spend lots of time with Brody. He is very demanding of attention. But I think he is loving Jett more and more. He loves to do silly faces to make him smile.

Above is Jett at 2 months and below is Brody at 2 months. Do you think they look alike? I sure do! I'm a girl in a world of BOYS! This picture cracks me up. Their noses crinkle the same. haha

I'm grateful for my Brody-boy. He has become such a sweet big brother, in just the last two days. He is willing to do things for me. As for me, I've learned that I need to praise him more for the things he does to help out. It has made us a happier bunch. Last night we were having FHE, and Lance asked Brody why we say our prayers and go to nursery, and he replied, "for Jesus, I love Jesus." It makes you feel so good as a parent that your efforts to teach your children really do sink in. We are doing great and having so much fun!

Are you serious with that schedule? You make it sound like having 2 kids is easier than having 1! Cute boys.

Brody is getting so big! He looks more and more like Lance all the time :) I will tell you it gets even better as more time goes by - having two boys close together makes for great friends! It might seem like it's far away, but it won't be long before they are wrestling together and kicking balls back and forth! Just a year! :) Looks like you guys are doing well - thinking of you often!
