2 Months

My sweet baby is 2 months old...


  • You are growing too fast.  My job as your mother is to ensure you grow, but can't you do it a little slower???  
  • At your 2 month check-up you are 11lbs,13oz (56%), 24 inches (82%) and your head 39 cm (29%).  
  • We saw real tears for the first time, after your shots.  Broke my heart, but surprisingly I didn't cry.
  • You are so much fun in the mornings.  After we nurse, you will snooze for a bit and then we will sit and talk.  You will actually smile and coo at me, as if we are having a real conversation.  
  • I could sit and kiss your cheeks all day.  I think Daddy could too.  You love it, even if  Daddy's face is a little scruffy.
  • You finally figured out how to get your hand in your mouth... now you are working on getting it to stay there. 
  •  You go to bed around 8:30-9 each night and sleep a 4-5 hour stretch, wake up to be changed and nurse and then sleep for a 3-4 hour stretch.  It's awesome!
  • You can't sleep good without one of your Cloud B buddies (Mimicking Monkey, Gentle Giraffe or Sleep Sheep) that make white noise in 45 min increments.  Throughout the night you will stir and I will have to get up to turn it back on... within minutes you are deep in sleep again.  
  • When you nap, you sleep with your hand on your face. 
  • You refuse to be held like a baby anymore.  You want to be upright, either laying against my chest or sitting with your back to my chest.  Daddy started this and now it is a must.
  • You will look at toys for a minute, but still prefer to look at faces.  We can get you to sit in your swing and look at the fish mobile or lay on your play mat for 15 min at at time.  
  • We are still breastfeeding and loving it! You are getting a big belly and a double chin, so I know you are getting enough to eat.  
 
  • Lucie seems to take more interest in you this month.  I guess she has finally figured out that you aren't going anywhere and she has to deal with it.  I have noticed that she wants more attention, spending most of the day at my feet.  
    • You are wearing 0-3 month clothes, fitting into them right before Christmas... which worked out perfectly considering  your Christmas outfits were 0-3 months.
      • I have started taking you out with me during the day without Daddy's help.  We have been grocery shopping, to Wal-Greens and out to get lunch.  You sleep most of the time.
      • You got cradle-cap and lost most of the hair on the top of your head around the first of the year.  It cleared up within a week and now you seem to have quite a bit of new hair.  Overall, you are a great looking baby!
      •  You went on a few trips this month... to Western KY and to Northern KY/Cinci.  You were an angel on both trips!
      • You got to meet your Great-Grandma Yease when we went to Western KY.  She loved you! 
         
        • You have been on 2 dates already... such a playa!  The first was with Evie on NYE and the second was with Caitlyn at 7 weeks.  
          First date with Evie.
          Caitlyn enjoyed licking your face and you didn't seem to mind.
          • I have only 3 weeks left of maternity leave and I have broken down every day in the past week thinking about having to leave you.  Please time, slow down!
           We love you so much and enjoy watching you grow... looking forward to many more precious times!
