Dear McCoy: (of 2 months)
You're actually a bit older than 2 months. Mommy forgot she wanted to post. Oops!
Someday I may want to look back and remember what these days were like, so here's a day in the life of the 2 month McCoy:
6:15am=Wake up. Nurse in the rocking chair.
7am=Change diaper. Play time! Play in th floor activity center. Batting/kicking practice. Tummy time. Mommy eats breakfast and has coffee while sitting by you. Then Prudy gives Mommy her morning kisses. We also take Prudy out during this time.
8:30-10=Play for a while, do some one handed chores like empty the dishwasher, and then short nap in the car seat while Mommy showers
10:30am=Play for a while, then nap in the bouncy while Mommy gets her lunch ready, supper planned for that night, and whatever else needs to be quickly cleaned
2:30pm=Play for a while, then sometimes a short nap
4pm=Eat again, then either get cranky, take a nap or play with Daddy whenever he gets home
6pm=Eat again, then nap or be cranky
8pm=Eat, then bath if it's bath night, or just get pj's on
9:30pm=Last feeding of the night
At night, you sleep in your bassinet in our bedroom. Mommy isn't quite ready to move you into your room yet, but she knows she has to soon. You are very smiley now and I think you really want to giggle, but haven't figured out how to do that yet. You are better in the car now that Mommy put a mirror that has this brightly colored elephant on it for you to look at. You usually do pretty well in church on Sunday morning, but when Mommy plays for the Wednesday services, you like to be fussy for Auntie Vicki. Mommy really likes to play dress up with you and you will let it happen for short bouts at a time. Your cranky time is usually around supper time, which is not so fun for Daddy because that's right about when he gets home from work. One day last week, cousin Layne came with us to Mommy's school so she could get some work done. You loved her long hair! You kept grabbing at it and got a few strands out. Poor Layne! Next time we'll bring a ponytail! You still are a rock star with a bottle and will drink about 5 oz at a time. You are starting to handle your baths a little better. It's not that you really like them yet, you have just stopped screaming bloody murder during them. You think it's funny when Mommy talks whale and will usually smile. Yesterday we had you go to daycare for a few hours to get used to it. You were just fine, but Mommy kept checking her watch to see when I could go get you again! You still don't have much hair. You have started to bat at objects. I also think you like to have noise around you constantly and you don't seem to mind Prudy's kisses.
Oop, Daddy's home which means time for a little father son time before Daddy has to go to bed and you get your bath!
