Newsletter: Month 2

Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

So G & A are now 2 months old. Wow. It seems to be flying by. People always say it is hard to remember the early months, and that its not necessarily a bad thing, not having to remember the long nights of no sleep and all.

You babies are really growing fast. G is now up to 10lbs 9oz, and A is now 8lbs 8oz. You both are really filling out and are starting to look a little bit more alike. Definitely look related now. I think that might be due to the fact that you both have the “Jankowski” head. G is in the 95% for head size and Abs is in the 75%.

The day after your 2 month birthday, Mommy took you to get your first round of shots. She said you were not very happy at all and cried screamed bloody murder the whole time. She was just a traumatized as you 2 and even left your band-aids on so that I could see the suffering you had to endure. I’ve also been enlisted to take you in for your next round in 2 months.

This month you definitely took major leaps forward in the sleeping department. You are now sleeping well at night, for up to 5 hours in between feedings. This has allowed Mommy and I to get some much needed rest, and has made caring for you much easier.

You have also adjusted very well to having the nanny come in 2 days a week so Mommy can head back to work part-time.  We have received nothing but good reports from her as she watches you and your friend Caine.

You have also both begun smiling at people in a big way. You both have the most adorable smiles and Abs has even had a slight giggle at times. You are also much more alert after you eat. Both of you enjoy sitting in the swing, staring at the fishys that swirl around. You also love to lie in the boppy and stare out the window or up at the fan. G loves to look at everything and takes it all in with big bright eyes. Sometimes G will make some noises in response to Mommy or I. Abs loves to smile and coo and talk. You are going to be our little social butterfly.

One of my favorite things that happened this month is that you began enjoying bath-time. We figured out that you really don’t like to be immersed in cold water, but like to be held in a warm shower. You are both so awake and alert while in the shower and look at the water coming down.

This month was also your very first road trip. You were very good travelers going to Nana and Pop’s house to meet your Houston cousins. You even took in your very first concerts at the Red River Revel, getting to enjoy Trout Fishing in America and George Clinton. From Shreveport, we headed up to Arkadelphia, AR to attend your adopted cousin’s baptism. The trip home went well, including stopping to feed twice in parking lots. It was quite the sight to see Mommy sitting in the front seat with the twin pillow feeding both of you.

All my love,


Cross Training?

Didn’t run for the sake of running last night, but I did hit the weekly men’s basketball game at church.  Only 11 showed so we played 5 on 5 full court.  Ended up playing for 1 hour 10 minutes of very quickly paced action.  Was feeling it by the end and was sucking a lot of wind.  I need to get back on the horse with playing more often.
