2 Months of Baby

So tomorrow (Friday October 29th) marks 2 months since Tian Elliot was born. (See below for birth story). It is hard to believe that 2 months have gone by already but then again a lot has happened in 2 months and I have watched my baby grow.
Looking back the first 2 weeks of motherhood was a blur. Words to describe those 2 weeks would be: tired, exhausted, groggy, sore. Although those first 2 weeks were exhausting I loved holding my tiny baby and getting to know him.
By weeks 3 and 4 things were starting to settle in with figuring out how motherhood works, getting more sleep and getting on a schedule with washing cloth diapers.
Weeks 5 and 6 brought adventure and sadness as we got to travel for the first time on a 14 hour roundtrip car ride to Aunt Manny's weedding. We got to be apart of the wedding but it was sad saying goodbye to Aunt Manny who had been staying with us since baby Tian was born and had helped change many diapers and had much playtime and naptime with the baby.
Weeks 7 and 8 have just passed and I have to say things are going wonderful. I am starting to understand my baby more and more each day. I have gotten to see the first smiles over the last several weeks. I am able to actually put him in his swing or bouncey chair to get meals prepared and getting more sleep.

I have loved these past 2 months transitioning from a full-time teacher to a stay at home mom. Realizing that it is a wonderful job or rather life to be able to share with my baby. And I am looking forward to the next 2 months even more.
