Liam Isaac: 2 (and a half) Months!

I realized that it's been a long time since I've updated the good ole blog, so I think it's about time for a new post! :) The main reason I blog is to document our lives. Now that we have Liam, I think this is more important than ever. I know I will love looking back on these posts for years to come and relive our story through these posts.

It seems as though time is flying by at warp speed these days. Our little man is growing more and more each day. I feel like if I blink, he'll be graduating from high school! Haha, I know that is a bit extreme...but I do want to make sure to cherish each and every moment with him, and not forget a thing. Because of this, I have been taking TONS of pictures of him. :) Most of the pictures are on my iPhone, and I share a few each day on instagram (username: tiffanyzajas) as well as Facebook and Twitter.

I do try and pull out the "big" camera and take some more professional photos of him at least once a month. I haven't really shared many of those on here, so I want to make sure to put them up before too much time passes.

Just like I documented the grown of Liam while he was in my belly, I want to make sure I do that now that he's here in person! Below are the three photos of him at 1 week, 1 month, and 2 months. My how he's changed already!

These are the images from his 2 month shoot. He's now 2.5 months, and I feel like he's already grown so much since these photos were taken just a couple weeks ago!

It really amazes me that Liam has blonde hair and blue eyes (for now, at least)! He takes after Jonathan's mom in this way. It's fun to see how he resembles both sides of the family in different ways. I think he's the perfect combination of us both. 

This month Liam found his hand...and he LOVES it! It's too funny to come into his room and hear him sucking on his hand rather loudly. He has also started drooling quite a bit!

The "muscle man" pose seems to be his favorite. Whenever he's not swaddled, this is his favorite way to sleep too. I love it. :)

This past month Liam has started smiling more and he smiles almost all the time! Nothing brightens my day more than looking at this face.

At his 2 month check-up, he was weighing 13lbs 14oz and measured at 24.25 inches long! He's growing at lightning speed, and I don't know if I can keep up! Haha. This week he started fitting into 3-6 month clothing, and I can't believe it. I'm so thankful that our boy is so healthy and is growing well.

Hehe, I just couldn't resist posting this one... :)

In the past month, Liam's personality has really come out more. It's so fun to see him observe and experience the world around him. He holds his head up like a champ, loves to swat at and try to grab his toys, turns his head to look at sounds, and loves to be read and sung to.

I am whole heartedly enjoying motherhood. I never knew how much I would love it! Life can get overwhelming and stressful and confusing, but taking care of our baby calms me and helps me realize what the most important priorities in life are. I find such peace in caring for him, and for that I am so thankful. God is so faithful to give us what we need when we need it. And I couldn't have asked for a greater blessing at a more perfect time.

Liam, you are loved!
