I’m only 10 days behind in posting that Cora is 2 months old! Ha! I’d call that a win for having 2 kids, 2 and under! The last two months have been amazing… and very busy to say the least!
February is birthday month in our family! Within 1 week, we celebrate Caleb’s birthday, Caden’s birthday, and my mom’s birthday. This year for Caleb’s birthday, my parents took the kids and we went to Fargo and ate at the Mezaluna. We had a fun time getting out of town for a little bit!
Caden has been loving Toy Story the last few months so naturally his birthday was Toy Story themed. “TWO infinity and beyond”! He loved opening presents and eating all the frosting off his cake! We brought him to the pool for the first time on his birthday – he was pretty scared at first but by time we had to go, he didn’t want to leave!
Cora has remained an overall content baby except in month 2. She went through a stage of screaming 3+ hours per night from 3ish weeks up until the last week or so. It was rough but thankfully between Caleb and I, we could take shifts until she fell asleep. She still isn’t sleeping great, but some nights she gives me decent stretches so I can’t complain!
-Loves to smile!
-Tells you she’s not happy with a loud cry!
-Still loves bath time
-Plays under her playmat for long stretches of time (as long as big brother doesn’t pull it away to play with it himself!)
-Very good at saying “no”
-Says mom like “mum” (so cute)
-Favorite toys are hot wheels… he watched Cars 2 and now takes his cars into the bath and pushes them off the edge over and over because that’s what he saw in the movie
-Loves to hunt flies with the flyswatter
