What a Difference 2 Months Make

Tomorrow Daxton will be two months old.
I am constantly amazed at how quickly time seems to be flying by and how much he seems to be changing.  We are slowly getting into a schedule, he's sleeping better at night and I usually am getting at least one 4 hour sleep during the night (much better than the 45 minute breaks from before!)  While in the NICU the doctors told us that we needed to think of his growth and progress by his "corrective age."  For example, even though he is going to be two months old tomorrow, his due date was only two and half weeks ago, so think of him as two and a half weeks old.  Daxton is still very tired for most of the entire day.  He is just barely starting to be interactive, eyes open and tracking objects.  He is getting very strong, holding his neck up for longer periods of time and trying to push his legs against objects.  

He is the greatest blessing in our lives and we love him so much.  His baby blessing is next week.  We are so excited to have both sets of grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends coming to town to visit.  We are so unbelievably grateful for the sweet spirit he has added to our home.

We love you, Daxton.
Thank you for giving us so much love and snuggles!
