Donovan is two months old!  We are just the luckiest family =)  He is such a sweet, easygoing baby.  We all love him so much.  Serenity must tell him ten times a day, “I love you Donovan” and “Awww, Donovan is so cute!”  =)

I saw this done as a monthly photo idea... wondering if I can photoshop him onto the calendar for months one and newborn =)


Donovan is growing so fast!  He’s started smiling in response to people =)  Just last Friday, the eighth, I noticed he was very happy and smiley with me when we were rocking in the chair.  We’d just eaten though, so I wasn’t sure if he was just content from the food, but the next day Jack was making faces and he smiled back at him!  It’s so wonderful!  Today he was sticking out his tongue when his Daddy did.  Henry, Jack and Patricia have been visiting so we have had lots of busy days around town.  I’ve been using the Moby wrap sling with him and I love it.  He loves it too, at least when he’s drowsy.  Eric got Donovan to play tug of war with him too, using the little plastic skwish-like toy.  He wrapped his fingers around it and Donovan held on.  He’s doing great with tummy time and turned his head back and forth several times.  It might have been to dodge his sister though, who likes to climb onto his tummy time mat with him.

Smiling at Jack =)


Donovan is really looking at things now!  I finally got the kites hung in his room, along with some Curious George decals and his name that I cut out with my new Silhouette.  When I took him up there to show him he was fascinated by it!  He really looked intently at all the things flying on his ceiling, and he even smiled!  And then later I was organizing all the toys I’d packed away and I pulled out the blue lion puppet.  I was tickled him with it, and roared, and gave him kisses.  He smiled and even made a little giggling sound!  He definitely thought it was funny.  Too cute!


Donovan is still growing like crazy!  He seems to be nearly the same size as his cousin Braley who is more than two months older =)  He’s very strong too, especially with his legs.  He loves to practice standing already.  He is lifting and holding his head up well too, but he really likes working those legs!  He sleeps six to eight hours in a row at night, and then nurses and goes right back to sleep until Serenity gets up at 7:30 or so… and sometimes seems like he’d like to sleep longer.  And he takes a few catnaps and one three hour nap during the day.  Amazing!  It’s funny, when they don’t sleep well you wish they did and when they do, you wonder if it’s too much sleep!  He seems happy and is growing well so I don’t worry too much though.


Six Weeks =)

Serenity is still fascinated by him, and loves to snuggle and tickle him all the time.  She gets so excited when his eyes are open that I have to remind her sometimes that tiny babies need lots of sleep and we should try to let him sleep when he wants to.  He’s very accepting and mellow of all the attention, and he loves to be talked to of course.  Lots of smiles and little happy noises!  He loves to look at pictures on the wall, especially the kites and the gigantic family canvas I have on my wall.  I’ve ordered one that has him in it and I’m excited to get to show it to him. =)

He loves sucking on his fist... wonder if he will be a thumb sucker instead of a paci baby...

Ann came to meet Donovan!
