Two Months

Colten was two months on October 30. The time is flying!! It almost seems like you can SEE him grow. Here are his two month pictures:

A few highlights from the month:

* He is smiling and cooing a lot. Melts my heart! Even when it is at 2 in the morning!

* He just discovered his hands and is fascinated when his fists cross his line of vision. It is so funny to see him just stare at them!

* He weighed 11 lbs 2 oz at his 2 month checkup and was 22 1/4 inches long.

* On Friday night (10/29), he slept from 10:30 pm to 6:00 am. I felt like a new woman!! I did have to get up a few times and give him his pacifier, but at least we didn't have that 2 am feeding. It was heavenly...sleep is a precious thing! Although we have had a few rough nights since then, he is sleeping pretty good for the most part.

* He has lost a lot of the dark hair he was born with but still has a ring of dark hair around the bottom of his head. We call it his old-man hair!

Shutterfly Card Promotion

I will admit it...I love Shutterfly. I have countless photobooks from them and have used them for Christmas cards for several years now. I love designing the photo cards each year - and they are easy to order and they look great! Besides, family and friends usually love to see updated pictures!

As usual, Shutterfly has some great card options this year. Here are a few of my favorites:

I like both of these...and you can change the titles to say "Merry Christmas" or whatever you want. Love that!

This one is just fun!

Another favorite!

Now we just need to get a good family picture! That usually means about 50 or so attempts - much to the delight of my husband.

So check out the new Shutterfly holiday cards - I know you will find something you like! They also have some some great gift ideas - like Christmas ornaments and wall calendars. I make calendars for the great grandparents every year - and they LOVE them!

If you are a blogger, you might be interested in the promo Shutterfly is currently offering. You can get 50 free photo cards just by blogging about this offer. You can't beat that!

Deja Vu

When I am holding Colten, I sometimes feel like I have been transported back 6 years to when Tanner was born. They are alike in so many ways. And then I pulled out some of Tanner's baby pictures. Oh yes...twins born 6 years apart!
