Sunday my little man turned two months old! Where has this time gone?! It’s hard to believe that in just a couple of weeks my maternity leave will be over.
Although our 2-month well baby checkup isn’t until Thursday, I already know our little guy has grown. He seems so much longer these days. And even though he still doesn’t have chunky baby rolls, I know he probably weighs more, too!
- He’s still bottle feeding with my pumped breast milk exclusively. And he’s eating a lot — somewhere between 25 and 30 ounces a day. Such a champ! Luckily I’m producing enough to keep up with his appetite! So thankful for that.
- He loves to ‘talk.’ He mimics our noises. So much so that one time I was saying “I love you Ari!” and Chad and I could swear that he said “I love you too!” It was hilarious!
- We had a very fun first Thanksgiving! We went to Ari’s Great Aunt’s house for the day and spent it with great family and great food.
- He’s learning to hold his head up really well. He still needs some support because he doesn’t have a ton of control; but his neck is super strong.
- He can also push himself up on his hands/arms when he’s on his tummy. He does it constantly.
- A couple of weeks ago he figured out how to roll over on his side.
- He’s a lot less colicky than he was before. Somewhere in the last few weeks it’s subsided. He still has him moments, but they are less frequent for sure. Thank goodness!
- He pooped on his Mimi [my mom] this past weekend. It was hilarious! Of course, I wasn’t being pooped on so maybe that’s why it was funny.
- He’s been trying to laugh but it comes out as this fake cough. I can’t wait until he figures out how to actually laugh.
- He loves bath time. I actually get in our big tub with him so that he can kick around and splash. He loves it. And, honestly, so do I! I can’t wait to put him in swim lessons in a few months.
- He met Santa for the first time at our annual family Christmas party.
Can’t wait to spend the holidays with this little guy before going back to work!
