Hugh at Two Months

Last Saturday Hugh turned two months. As we've watched him grow and gotten to know his cute little personality, we feel such a deep gratitude for the strength and health he has been blessed with. It's still hard to think back to his beginning... I get all teary-eyed remembering the lonely days and nights that I had to spend in a hospital so far away from him. I can still hear the piercing cries of other mothers' babies down the hall from me, wondering if my baby was crying too and hoping that there were some loving arms quick to comfort him. I hated those three days of my life. I don't know how I survived them... probably the vicodin.

Anyway, one day I know I'll need to revisit some of those emotions, but for today I'm just so happy with the growth and health of my baby Hugh.

His two month stats:

He weighs 12 pounds 14 ounces (75 percentile)

He is 24 inches tall (75 percentile)

His head circumference is 16.5 inches (90 percentile)

In addition, he is smiling more and more. When I am kind enough to allow others to hold him (I am admittedly very selfish when it comes to others holding both my boys... I just want them all to myself), we often get the comment of how strong Hugh is. He usually only wakes up twice during the night, around 12:30am and then around 4am. He is starting to like going on walks in the stroller with Ben by his side, but we know his first preference is to be in someone's arms. Unless he's tired, Hugh is a very squirmy eater - he'll kick his legs and wave his arms while I nurse him... it's actually really cute. During his baths at night, he's content to lay still and relax in the warm water, which is quite different from Ben's excited splashing... although, I'm sure that will probably change some with time.

We love our Hugh and count ourselves blessed to have him in our family.

he is darling!


I was sent a link to your blog by a friend and I have to tell you that you have 2 beautiful boys. I just lost twins at 17 1/2 weeks. Going back through your blog has made me cry, smile and even gave me a little hope while I grieve. I hope that my story can end up as beautiful as yours!
