Two Months

Mr. Aiden is changing so much from week to week. It's so amazing to me how much he's grown from the little six pound peanut I brought home about 10 weeks ago. He's getting so big and so strong. I love seeing what each day brings, but am a little bit sad about how quickly time passes.

At two months Aiden is:

  • 10 pounds 11 ounces
  • 22.75 inches long
  • eating every 3-4 hours (except last night when he unfortunately reverted back to every 2)
  • sleeping 3.5-4 hours at a time (except last night) and has had a couple 5 hour stretches (which Mommy loved)
  • holding his head up pretty well
  • locking his legs and "standing"
  • smiling like crazy

  • laughing occasionally
  • cooing and "talking" to us
  • playing with his tongue
  • loves when we imitate his sounds and tries to imitate us

  • wearing 0-3 and 3 month clothes
  • cloth diapered all the time now
  • has discovered his feet
  • sucks his fingers, fist and thumb when he can find it (this seems to be replacing the pacifier)
  • has tons of hair on the bottom of his head, but little on the top and back

  • is so stinking cute I can't stand it!

Better Late Than Never

So I've been meaning to do baby posts, but blogging seems to have gotten lost in the shuffle of new mommyhood. Right now I'm sitting on the couch holding a sleeping baby and figure now is as good a time as any to get in some one handed blogging. I know I could put him down and be more productive, but since I'll be heading back to work eventually, I'm taking advantage of all the snuggle time I can.

My plan for Aiden's first year is to do a monthly blog post with photos to document his growth. Since we'll be doing two month photos this week, I'm a bit late with his one month post. Better late than never right...

At one month Aiden:

-was 8 pounds 1 ounce and 21.5 inches long at his one month check up
-was eating every two hours
-would much prefer to sleep in someone's arms than by himself
-needed to be swaddled with arms out
-held my fingers while nursing
-grew crazy long blonde eye lashes
-liked to be sung too
-was quite a snuggler
-was wearing newborn sized clothes
-made the funniest faces, especially with his eyebrows:

(taken at 6 weeks)

He already looks so different than these pictures. He's filling out and getting longer. It's so crazy how much he changes from week to week. Hopefully I can post his two month photos and update soon, before he changes too much.
