Joaquin's new trick!

Joaquin is 2 months old! Can you believe it? Time seems to fly by with the second child! Ian and I turn around and he is smiling, laughing, trying to roll over, and grabbing things.

With Elijah, we worked hard to be sure and teach him every single developmental progression--each one well documented and celebrated. With Joaquin, on the other hand, it is like he is progressing at lightening speed whether we are helping or not! I feel like, as parents, we are just along for the ride.

Ian and I realized last night that Joaquin can reach out and grab things he wants now. Just goes to show that all the required teaching parents think kids need to move through the developmental stages is kinda pointless if they can just do it on their own anyway. At least it takes off the pressure! :)


  1. Aren't second children so different? I remember just watching and waiting for Brody to do every little thing. Now, it might be day two before we notice Kate has done something new. So fun...

  2. He's such a happy, sweet little curious boy. :)
