Another month has come and our little guy is doing well. This month was filled with lots of rest and staying home. We all enjoyed it! Landon also had his first cold and his first round of shots. As nervous as we were for the shots, he was fine after a bottle. Whew! Not looking forward to the next round.
Memories from two months:
Weight: At his two month checkup this week he weighed in at a whopping 10 lb. 2 oz, but his height is the exact same as birth.
Length: 21 1/2 in. Poor short little buddy. I can’t say I’m shocked he is in the 5th percentile for height. Welcome to our world.
Hair: Hair is still dark and continuing to grow. He has a small cradle cap issue that we are hoping clears up soon!
Eyes: I’m still hopeful they stay blue. Tyler thinks they are changing. We will see!
Clothes: All of a sudden this month, the newborns were a bit tight and the sleeves were too short. Why is it so hard to pack them up??? He is wearing 0-3 and 3 months. The 3 month pants are still a bit long.
Diapers: Size 1.
Sleeping: Sleeping has taken on a whole new meaning this month. We started out pretty good and then hit a slump with a head cold. We have been up 2-3 times a night. The worst night, we were up every two hours. Mom and Dad are tired!! We are hoping we can start a better routine soon and get back to the 4-5 hour nights at minimum. Last night, we kept him up until 10 and he went for 6 hours. Bless him.
Likes: These are all the same from last month. Being held all.the.time, being snuggled up in blankets, being held upright with his head tucked under your chin, and his dad’s professional swaddle. A few new items…. The Moby. My in-laws gifted me with it at Christmas and we all love it! We are also using the Lullaby Pandora station and little man will quiet down with some music.
Dislikes: Wet/dirty diapers, stopping feeding to burp, and bright lights.
Eating: We had a feeding frenzy at 6 weeks where it seemed he was eating every hour, but otherwise he will go 2.5-3 hours and usually a little longer at night.
Milestones: Smiling. He has melted our hearts. He will also respond to “ahhhh” with trying to talk. He will open is mouth really wide and let out a little squeek. He is also more alert everyday and starting to show his personality. He is feeding like a champ – nursing and bottles. We aren’t heating the bottles and he doesn’t mind a bit. I’m hopeful this will help us to transition to daycare easily.
Mom’s favorites: Of course I love that gummy smile and how he will recognize my voice. He is the best at snuggling and I savor these moments with him as I know he won’t want to forever.
Baby items we can’t live without: The moby. It has saved me more than once this month. I also broke down and got a bouncy seat. He isn’t in love with it yet, but getting there. The rock-n-play didn’t allow him to sit up as much as he has wanted to, so we are hoping the bouncy seat does the trick.
We adore our little guy and hope this month goes as slow as possible before maternity leave is over. We have lots to do to prep him and his supplies for school.
