2 Months

We went to B's 2 months check up last Thursday. Here are the highlights about the appointment and other milestones:

-He now weighs 10 pds 7 oz and is 21 3/4 inches. Still on the small side compared to other 2 month old babies...but he is doing really well and gaining weight tremendously.

-He received 4 shots! It was horrible. Once he figured out what was going on he was screaming. He was fussy the rest of the day and he ended up getting the fever that evening. We were warned about this so it was no surprise, but it was still not fun to deal with it.

-He is smiling at us all the time now--especially in the morning after he's had a good night sleep. He also giggles in his sleep--it is the funniest thing! I can't wait until he giggles when he is awake!

-He loves taking a bath!! One thing to note is that he pees in his tub all the time! My friends told me that girls to this also, you just don't notice it since you don't get that arc! I've learned to just go with the flow, if he pees in the water, there is nothing else I can do--just keep going with what we are doing.

-He is feeding every 4 hours at night! Which is better than every 2 or 3 hours! I hear that other babies are sleeping thru at 6 weeks I jealous, yes a little, but at this point I will take what I can get. I just keep reminding myself that he is only this small for so long so just enjoy every minute of it (this my favorite phrase around 2 or 3 in the morning!!)

-Breastfeeding is going well. I don't know if I can call it breastfeeding since he gets a bottle of breast milk. My milk supply is a lot better--I don't have to give him formula anymore, but at our doctor's visit, the pediatrician recommended that we continue to give him one bottle of formula a day. Apparently, breast milk doesn't have any vitamins and since he likes it anyway, we should just continue. I am okay with this.

-He is getting better about napping...still not fabulous, but I've managed to get him to nap for at least 45 minutes (or more ) in the morning. I am still working on the afternoon nap. He can sleep if I carry him and cuddle him, but once I put him down he is awake!

So that is all I can remember for mom leaves this Wednesday and S will be in NYC this week also. So B and I will be alone....I hope it goes well.

Momo, your posts sounds so happy these days! It is so great to hear. I am sure you and B will do great on your own and yay for 4 hours a night. My nephew was almost 6 months before he hit that mark!

Hi Momo,
I know I haven't been over in a while. I've been so busy with work and waiting on AF to start so we can begin cycling again. I sent you an invite for my blog. I'm really glad to hear that all is going well with Benjamin and I pray that your pending move to NYC goes smoothly. You'll love it there!!! We did!

Awww! 2 months already! I can't believe it. Aislinn is all smiles in the morning too. She's also easier to get down for a nap in the morning, later in the day it takes a little more to get her to settle down. Sounds like she and Benjamin are on the same page, LOL.

Happy 2 month birthday Benjamin!!!
