We're two months old!!
Holy Moly I cant believe my baby is 2 months old, that is crazy!!
Weight: I think about 12lbs based on weighing him at home, he has his 2 month apt tomm. and we will get the official stats
Length: About 23 inches!!!
What I'm wearing: I have to finally retire our xs diapers he just pees too much and leaks out of them every time so we have graduated to the one size diapers which are mostly on the smallest setting and are still a little bulky but he will grow in to them soon enough. We are mostly in 0-3m clothes although most of his clothes are getting too small length wise he's long and skinny so we might have to graduate to 3-6m clothes soon even though they may be too wide they will at least be long enough.
Milestones: smiles and coos at us ALL the time, getting better at pushing up on his forearms during tummy time, now he actually enjoys tummy time for a short period of time as opposed to before when he would scream as soon as you put him prone. Holds his head up on his own except for when he's tired or mad, brings his hands to midline, he's becoming much more interested in his toys which I love...I cant wait for him to play more and be able to entertain himself a little bit
He can even sit in his bebe pod for short periods of time!
Obligatory Adorable Picture:
|laughing at his momma|
Eating: during the say he pretty much eats every 2 hours or like today every hour on the hour. Our feeding times have decreased though from taking about 45 minutes total to sometimes only 15-30 minutes on one side
Sleeping: well technically sleeping through the night is defined as a 5 hour stretch so technically he sleeps through the night SOME nights. He actually had a 6 hour stretch the other night...but for the most part he wakes up every 3-4 hours. He goes to bed around 930-10 generally wakes to eat around 130 or 2, 530 or 6 and then will usually go to sleep until around 8 or so and be up for the day. Im reading the no-cry sleep solution to see if we cant get some longer stretches and a better sleep routine
Visits/Outings: We went on our first overnight trip to MiMi and PopPops house two weeks ago and this week my friend from high school came to hang out with us for the day with her little girl who is 22 days older than L. We also go to our weekly playgroup on monday with several girls from work who all had babies within 2 weeks of each other...it really helps me keep my sanity and be less neurotic!! Aside from playgroup I try to keep the errand running to a minimum because its so freaking hot outside!!
Favorite Activities: Loves to walk around the house with mommy be it me holding him, in the sling or the moby it doesn't matter walking through the house is his favorite thing to do so most days I spend a long time walking up and down our main hallway. He also LOVES to look at himself in the mirror, if he is fussy that can calm him down many times. He loves his friend Fan and also his play gym with the little bugs, they must be silly because he often lays on the floor cracking up at his play gym bugs. We go on walks in the late evening around 730 to see the turtles and alligators by our house which he also enjoys, I cant wait till it cools off some so we can go on longer walks!!
Mommy Feels: So blessed and happy, I just love this little guy more than words. Even when its 3 am and he wont sleep he look sat me and starts smiling his big grin I cant help but laugh and not be upset with him. He is only 9 weeks and already has me wrapped around his chubby baby finger, I hate that I have to go back to work in 2 weeks I have been praying hard that God bring us the perfect sitter for us to watch him in the evenings between when I go to work and daddy comes home. The only thing that makes me ok about going back to work and leaving him is that he will be sleeping most of the time I'm gone. I choose to be in denial about the fact that I have to back to work in 2 weeks though. I never knew I could love something so much and I love watching him grow and get stronger each day!!
