My, How Two Months Flies...

I'm too tired to be clever, so mostly just some pictures of Tiny Snuggles (aka Charlie) today...

On Sunday, he was officially given his name and a blessing at church.






I've been trying to catch pictures of him "talking" and smiling, but he talks and smiles with his whole body, and ever since the camera took a swim last summer at the beach, pictures are grainy and blurry more often than not, especially when the subject is moving.

I thought I would remedy that with a little video, and he was so talkative this morning. But, alas, all I captured was the rest of Charlie's infant repertoire: sneezing, yawning, making a pterodactyl sound, and, as Uncle Kevin says, rumpling his stiltskins. And of course, the Code Yellow googoo voice...

But it's still reasonably adorable, so I'm posting it anyway. For posterity and those of you who have two minutes to spend doing what I do pretty much all day, every day: watching my baby.



Charlie has a dimple in his cheek when he smiles, and his eyes are almost always smiley, quite like my grandpa's...

He is a snuggler like neither of my other two boys really were, and he can actually nuzzle and scoot somehow to get closer to me when we're laying next to each other...

He can raise one eyebrow when he sees something that interests him...

He rolled from front to back for the first time yesterday, so he's already on the move...

I can't figure out how time goes by so quickly, and find this phase of motherhood baffling - one minute I feel it is never going to end, the next minute I want to stop the clock so that I can have my baby like this forever...

He sneezed! OMGosh that video is precious. And his little outfit with a little hat and everything.
They grow too fast if you ask me.
That last picture is adorable :)

He is so cute! I loved the little show and I can't believe he is already rolling over.

I agree they grow up so fast.

Oh, oh, oh, he's so adorable. I loved all those squirmy little faces and the sneezes!! My newest grandson is 8 months old and he's a real snuggler. Sort of like a velcro baby. I love the way he hangs on!

Little Charlie is absolute perfection!!! After I read your post, I ran over to look at my new baby because it had been about 5 minutes since I'd savored him. When he saw me, his face lit up with recognition and I wept. I agree, I wish that I could stop the clock and keep them like THIS forever. Borrowing from Charlie's t-shirt: I don't WANT to watch you go. I want you to stay RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE!!!

Thanks a bunch for the Rockin Girl Blogger Award. I'm truly, truly honored!!! :)

OH MY GOSH T. This is hilarious and precious and so dang cute! I'm glad you recorded the bm's for posterior I mean, posterity.

He can't take his eyes off you! I love it.

I am noticing this greater desire to "talk" and laugh in Danyo than I remember being in my other two. Is it the same with Charlie? I seriously could have watched about 17 more hours of this kind of footage.

I'm feeling an urgent need to meet Charles. And snuggle him.

What a cute little guy. I have a 3month old girl right now. By the way, are you LDS? The reference to name and a blessing is only one I've heard in the LDS community.

What a cutie! I had you bookmarked on my old computer- I can't believe it's been two months when I used to read you everyday. I'm very ashamed and bookmarking you on my new computer right now.
