2 Months

My baby is 2 months old today!!

[update: He is 10.4 lbs and 22 3/4 in long!!!
And didn't like the fact that he only had a diaper on more than getting the shots he needed]

He has outgrown "newborn" and "infant" sizes, and is starting to fill out the 0-3 mo outfits.

He's starting to drool, he blows bubbles with it. However he only spits up every so often.

He smiles ALL the time!
He gets really excited and lets out huge coos with a BiG smile--adorable.

He has an adorable pouty lip when he is sad

He's definitely more vocal--from coos to his "I'm uncomfortable or lonely" cry (more like a whimper) to his "I'm SO not happy cry". Mommy is getting really good at figuring out why he's fussy.

Tyrannical at night time, however. Wakes up often, grunts, is hard to get him to stay awake to keep eating. He knows the second you put him down in his bassinet and shoots awake, so then I pick him up and the second I get him into position he's asleep again. SO annoying. I often fall asleep feeding him because of this nightmare. I think it's time for that book everyone raves about---

He enjoys his bouncer and has fun bouncing in it now. He also takes naps in it so I can move him around the house when he's sleeping because of the lack of a baby monitor still. Maybe that's why he hates sleeping in his bassinet at night...

He usually takes one really long nap a day-- at least 2 1/2 to 3 hours. This is great because I can get some stuff done around the house and then take a nap of my own.

Now for the pictures!!!
He's changed so much already!

1st 7th week

1st week to 8th week (he doesn't even fit that sprinkler onesie anymore!)

Loving the bouncer!

These are just 2 of his many faces

[this post will be updated on Friday with his weight and height]


  1. Does he have to get shots on friday? Alexander is scheduled for his at his 2 month checkup. Poopy poopy shots. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be more upset about it than he is. What about you?

  2. oh yeah--3 I think :S EEK. NOT looking forward to it! I read in Parenting magazine though if you give them a little sugar water they will have less pain according to one study done--I just might try that.

  3. I think your little dude looks a lot like Scott now :)

  4. I wonder if Luke has some acid reflux keeping him up at night. My friend's baby had it and wouldn't sleep laying down because acid would creep up her throat. If Luke's sleeping during the day in his bouncer, maybe propping him up a little in his crib (putting something under the mattress) could help him at night. You don't have to take my advice though... he doesn't spit up much which is usually a sign of reflux.

  5. Also, the shots aren't that bad if you feed the baby immediately afterwards and have given him Tylenol about 30 minutes beforehand.

  6. So cute! I can't believe how fast babies grow!
