Reality Bites

Hello! My name is LJ and I am 2 months old. I now weigh about 10 lbs.

I have been keeping my Mom very busy these past couple of months. She nurses me every 3-4 hours around the clock. I pretty much keep her busy as if she is not feeding me, she is constantly changing my diaper or playing with me. She and my Dad read, sing and talk to me as well.

This month, I've learned to smile and laugh. Mom and Dad are tickled by this as they always make funny faces and sounds at me. They think they can fool me into smiling for them, but I will only smile/laugh only when I want to.

Compared to other labor stories, my Mom had a relatively "easy" time with me. She was only in labor for 4 hours before I made my debut. She was sooo happy when I came out, I saw her and Dad cry.

Mom has been staying home with me and will be for the next 2.5 months. Dad had to go back to work unfortunately 2 weeks after I was born. I think I am tiring my Mom as I see her yawning all the time. Probably because I keep her up at night. She hasn't slept much since I was born, only catching naps.

The past 2 months has been an exciting time for me and my Mom and Dad. I am cherishing every moment with them as these fly right by. I try to tell them how much I love them by coo-ing, I think they understand as they either coo back at me or make more funny sounds.

Most people say that I look like my Dad and I think my Mom feels left out. She does say that I have her ears, fair skin and possibly my lips. I must have good genes because I've been told that I am handsome and a cute baby. (Even cuter than J Lo's twins to be perfectly honest!)

I am writing this on behalf of my Mom who doesn't have much time to blog. She misses it alot and will be back when she has more time to write.

Question of the day: Who is the cutest celebrity baby?
