today i'm thankful that i have boys that sleep well. jackson is a pro in the sleeping department and carter does quite well for a 10 week old. they are both sleeping right now...and have been for the last 2 hours. (and i'm thinking i'll get another hour out of them both!) i love when it works out that they're sleeping at the same time.
i was looking back over my blog and remembering that when jackson was carter's age he wouldn't take a nap for more than 40 minutes...and night time was a nightmare. carter will usually take at least one 2-3 hours nap each day and has been sleeping 8-9 hours at night and back for another 3-4 after getting changed and fed.
jackson now takes a 3 hour nap each afternoon (and sometimes an hour nap in the morning) and has slept 12-13 hours each night since he was about 9 months old...he goes down between 6 and 7 and doesn't usually wake up until 7am!
it's definitely been a challenge have 2 kiddos...but today i'm going to focus on the positives...and having babies that sleep is a postive for sure!

2 whole months

you are now 2 whole months old. we've enjoyed seeing a little more of your personality come through. you're growing like you should. at your 2 month check up you weighed 10 pounds 6.5 ounces and were 22 1/4 inches long.
you've also started smiling a lot. you even giggled in your sleep once. one of my favorite things is how you smile as you're drifting off to sleep. i think you are going to be a happy baby.
we're also enjoying hearing your voice. you make such a cute cooing sound when we talk to you.
probably our most favorite thing that you did this month is sleep through the night. the last day of january was your 1st time. you slept from 8pm until 5am. and you've continued sleeping at least 7 hours in a row each night...keep it up!
well, this note is going to be short and sweet because you just woke up from a nap and are screaming to be held.
