Today was Beckham and Brooklyn's 2 month check up! They did super well considering they had to get 3 shots :( Lets hope that makes them sleep a little more today ;)
Beckham is growing so much every day. He loves to be held by anyone but he constantly moves and kicks his legs. He never sits still! He doesn't like to take naps and mommy doesn't like that very much. He coos and smiles every day and its so adorable. He recently found his hand and has started to suck on it. Beckham rolled over for the first time a few weeks back and I think its because his big head helped him out! We recently introduced the paci and he doesn't care to take it. That can be good and bad! He also loves tubby time!
Beckham's 2 month stats:
22.25 inches long
90% in weight and 25% in height
Brooklyn is starting to fill out more and is getting some rolls! She still loves to sleep and mommy likes that!!! She smiles and knows who her mommy is :) Brooklyn rolled over one day before Beckham! She has also found her hand and sucks on it sometimes. She is cooing too and will take her paci! It had been a lifesaver some days. She loves to be rocked to sleep and to be held. She is a snuggle bug. She likes to nap on her stomach and will sleep longer when she does.
Brooklyn's 2 month stats:
21 inches long
15% in weight and 8% in height
We love our little babies! I wish I could get a nap in once in awhile but with two it can be tricky! Brooklyn is sleeping as we speak and SURPRISE...Beckham is wide awake!
These babies just don't stop growing! Brooklyn has almost doubled her birth weight. Just give her another week or so and she'll be over 8 lbs. She loves to sleep on her tummy and will smile just a few minutes after she closes her eyes close. She loves being held and likes for you to cuddle her up on your stomach. Her eyes are still blue so she may just be lucky and have Clark's eyes! She still looks like me I think!
Beckham is our little/big butter ball! He sure is a chunker weighing over 11lbs! Sometimes we joke and ask him where his neck is. He is the sweetest little boy there is and you just want to kiss those chunky cheeks. He still smiles ALL the time and loves being held as well. He likes to be facing outside so he can look around. We've noticed recently he has a tired whimper. I can't get over how much he looks like Clark!
They both have strong legs and love to kick and try and stand up when you have them on your chest. They'll hold your finger while eating and sometimes try and hold their own bottle! Maybe that is mom's wishful thinking ;)
We love them but can't wait until they can sleep through the night! :)
Today was such a great day! Beckham and Brooklyn received a baby blessing at church from Clark. For those of you who don't know what this entails: Clark gives the child a name and adds words of blessing as the Spirit directs. It was such a sweet spiritual experience to hear Clark speak loving words to our kids. It was also great because all the men in the Gray family and my dad participated in this.
Chad wasn't able to make it in the picture :(
This is what happens when you try and take pictures of two babies!!!
