I want to make his diaper pail smell better, so I did a hunt on the Internet for a chemical-free and cheap way to make it smell less "icky". I found a great recipe from some blog.
-Pour water in bowl, add essential oil scent of your choosing
-Add baking soda until it makes a thick paste/putty
-Put in muffin papers in muffin tins, and let harden for 24 hrs
-Pop "puck" out of tin and hide in stinky places!
I probably added about 1 cup of baking soda to 1 cup of water and it make 3 "pucks".

Make himself in to a birthday card for his dad (relax, it's eyeliner):
Fight being put down for a nap, but still manages to look super cute:
FINALLY take a nap:
Cry when he wakes up cause he always get a bit scared after a nap:
Take a moment to plot the demise of the world (a'la Mr. Burns from the Simpsons):
And finally, play so hard he passes out:
You have just witnessed a day-in-the life of a 2 month old. It's a pretty damn good life! He occasionally eats in-between such exciting activities as well.

- pushing naps during the day. After approx 60-90 minutes of being awake, I try and get Jack to rest, either on me, in his bassinet, or just some quiet time in his swing (which I can usually get to turn in to a nap!). This has been the BIGGEST difference in him being a better sleeper. Rather than make him sleep on strict schedule during the day, I've just been following his cues (rubbing eyes, getting cranky, bored with his toys, etc) and it's worked out well
- trying to set up some sort of a bedtime routine. Every few days he gets a bath (and plays so hard during his baths that he usually passes out really soon afterwards). The routine is, play before bed, 20 min diaper change/play time (Troy and Jack can turn a simple diaper change in to an all out playtime and sing-a-long), boob and a book (Troy reads our nightly bible chapter while Jack is having his dessert), and then J gets put in the bassinet.
Here are a few more photos of the little man!

1) two of Jack's godmommies flew up from California with their kiddos for 6 days and we were too busy partying with the munchkins
2) Jack got Baptised
3) Jack has been just way too damn cute lately, and I would rather be smooching his belly than posting.
Jack had some of his two month shots on Friday. He handled them like a champ - only crying and giving the nurse a "what the fuck" look for about 4 minutes. A lot of babies are fussy and crying for a few days afterwards, but Jack was an angel and even snuggled with his Grammy Q for an hour afterwards!
And for the final photo that the child welfare department will use to put Troy and I away for good, here is a sweet "do" that Troy gave Jack tonight during his bath:
