SO much happened in your second month of life. It was what some would call an absolutely crazy life, but even more for a 2 month old. It has been a lot of fun having you around and you are a very good baby.

How Big Are You?

What’s Your Temperament?
You are so chill and you go with the flow.  You put up with being in your carseat really well especially since we had to be on the go so much with showing the house and activities with your brother. 

What Are You Eating?
You still get up in the middle of the night to eat but not as often as you did your first month. You do get really fussy if we haven’t fed you in about 3 hours but that is to be expected. 

What Are you Sporting?
You wear 3 month clothes and still in size 1 diapers. 

How Are You Sleeping?
You sleep like a champ. You slept from 9:30 pm to 6:30 am on August 12!
You don’t take regular naps yet but sleep off and on throughout the day.

Fun Moments, Favorite Notes, Léonie Quirks + Milestones:

  • MomMom spent time with us while Daddy was out of town. 
  • You really started pushing up and holding your head up really well. You have a strong little neck and even Dr. Gilley commented on that at your check up. 
  • Your brother loves to hold you. He likes to give you cuddles. 
  • We had our fist mommy and mini matching outfit day! 
  • We went to SetonFest at church and you got to see lots of people that worked with mommy. 
  • We went to the Zionsville Farmers Market. Mommy and Guyon had an ear of corn for breakfast.
  • We sold our house and went to start looking at lights and appliances for our new house. You rode in the cart like a champ. 
  • We explored several parks in the area before we had to move. Your brother loved it. You slept through most of our visits. 
  • You got baptized by Fr. John at Seton. You were dunked in the baptismal font and your Granny gasped when she saw you go under. There is a video we will have to show you someday. Your brother loves to watch this video and talk about you being baptized. 
  • Lots of family came over and celebrated your baptism and saw us for the last time before we moved. MomMom and PopPop got in the pool with your brother the day after your baptism for the last time. 
  • We started packing the house. The movers came and packed our house up for us. You were so good. You hung out and watched and slept. 
  • The movers came the next day and you were super good again. 
  • The same day the movers were there, you had your 2 month check up. It was a week early but it allowed us to get in the visit before we moved. Your brother also got a shot. You were both champs and you barely cried. 
  • We stopped to see Uncle Sam and Emma in Bloomington and Uncle Andrew in Davenport on our way to Iowa. We visited the John Deere Pavillion and a RiverBandits game while in Davenport. We also went to the Farmer’s Market. 
  • We celebrated mommy and daddy’s anniversary in Iowa We had plans to go to the Iowa State Fair but it rained and mommy didn’t really want  you out in the rain. 
  • The truck arrived at our rental house in Ankeny. We unpacked as best we could. Many things will probably stay in boxes though. 
  • MomMom and PopPop came to visit and helped us work through some of the boxes. 

Lots of firsts for our first born this weekend.

We started off the weekend on Friday night by convincing him to wear underwear to bed because he is a big boy and we knew that he could do it! Sure enough, he did it and stayed dry all weekend. At just a little over 3, I am so proud of him for taking on potty training himself and accomplishing everything we ask of him.

Second, was his first college football game. We took him to the Purdue spring game on Saturday and he loved it! Ok, so he might have been more interested in the band but he still had a great time.

Third, this one was a big deal in our house, little mister tried his first oyster. He has always been around a lot of seafood since he was little but we’ve been cautious about letting him try oysters and other bivalves.

Made for a great weekend! We have a couple more fun weekends coming up., look for more in the next couple of weeks!

Traditionally, we got candy in our Easter Baskets. It was a sugar overload and normally had a sugar rush long before we went to church. As we got older, we encouraged the “Easter Bunny” to not get us so much candy and we got something else like a movie or gift card in our Easter Basket.

The last couple of years we haven’t really gotten G much candy or even edible gifts in his Easter Basket either. This year will be very similar. Here are just a few of the ideas that I have for him this year.


These markers are wonderful. G got a few of these for his birthday and it would be great for him to have a few more colors. Plus they don’t actually mark on anything but the paper.


Daniel Tiger is our go-to TV show in our house. The kid loves the show and has seen all of the episodes available on Amazon Prime Video. We can’t go wrong with coloring and Daniel Tiger.


G has been gifted a couple of other toys from Fat Brain Toys. These look intriguing, have great reviews and could be used at home or on the road while traveling.


Scissors are big time exciting in our house right now. G loves using them and can’t wait for us to say yes when he wants to cut something. This workbook is the perfect addition for him to continue gaining valuable dexterity skills.


Music is an everyday thing in our house right now. Tubas made out of pillows, air guitars, lego trumpets, maracas and more. There is a jam session every single night. This is one of those instruments that I think we can handle having around plus I think that G will learn so much more about music in a unique way.

I realize this is completely different from most Easter baskets but each activity will provide G with new experiential learning. Learning by playing is what I love to see at this age and can’t encourage him enough to keep learning.

After visiting Davenport for the 4th of July, we headed over to West Lafayette to visit some friends and visit campus. It was a great visit and we enjoyed our time visiting our old stomping grounds.

The weather is finally starting to warm up enough that we don’t have to bundle up everywhere we go so we went to our favorite park for a visit at the end of March to play. This was the first time Guyon had actually played at the park. The only bummer was that they don’t have good swings at this particular park. (Don’t worry though, we have tons of other parks close by that we need to try out and see if they have swings!)

Guyon really enjoyed playing and going down the slide!
