two months old already???

Time just keeps going faster... with each child, it seems like time is just speeding along faster and faster and faster.  I know I've said this before, but sometimes I really wish I could freeze time.  Now would be one of those.  I'd forgotten how much fun 2 month old babies are.  :-)

Joshua weighs in at a whopping 12 lbs and is 23" long.  He falls right in the 50th percentile - so he may be a bit more petite than my other crazies, who have seemed to be in the upper 80s or 90th percentile most of their lives. 

Joshua is the easiest baby on the planet.  Hands down.  (Thank you Jesus - you knew we couldn't handle a high maintenance kiddo!)  He is so happy and content and seriously hardly ever cries.  And oh my word, he is flexible.  I suppose he has to be a go with the flow kind of dude with our hectic schedule. 

He is one happy baby!  No one can make him smile or talk like his daddy does and it is precious!  Though I will admit, I was secretly happy that his first smiles were reserved for me.  :-)  He and daddy have the cutest talks.  I love the way Joshua stares at daddy intently when he first gets home from work.  Love love love!!!

People constantly ask what's the hardest part of having three or what's been the toughest part?  Well, honestly, he just really fits in to our family so well, but the hardest part is getting him on a good schedule.  Thankfully, he's flexible, but I feel so bad for him.  He's constantly in and out of the car, which is interrupting his daytime sleep (and consequently he is not sleeping well at night either.).  I have to load him up to take Jacob to school at 720, Jonathan to school at 9, pick up Jonathan at 12 and then pick up Jacob at 220...  see??? Lots of transitions.  He is still getting up at least twice to eat - like clockwork.  I'm hopeful he will start sleeping through the night really soon... hint hint, sweet baby boy! 

Oh Joshua, how I love you.  I can't imagine life without you.  You are so special and you complete our family in the best way.  Your brothers adore you and will always be here for you.  They may overwhelm you at times, but I promise you, they would walk through fire for you.  So would mommy and daddy.  We love you so much!  I know God has a very special plan for you.
