Wow! I can’t believe our little guy is 2 months already! I feel like we just got home from the hospital. I am writing this while Archie is in his baby bjorn! So far its the best carrier we have tried.
Height/weight: His 2 month appointment is next week so not sure! According to our scale he is 10 pounds though. Still a little peanut.
Eating/Nursing: I went back to work part time at 7 weeks. Pumping at work has gone better than expected! I actually bought a car adapter and pump on the way too and from work. Good thing I have tinted windows! Archie stays with grandma and it seems like he eats much more when he is with her and is much happier. We have been trying to feed him a bottle after I nurse him so he stays happy but he seems distracted when Ryan or I try to feed him. I guess my mom will just have to move in with us 🙂
Likes/ Dislikes: Oh … I think I’ll start with dislikes because there are many.
-being on his back
-His activity mat. .
-sleeping on his tummy or his side
Sleep: If we try to swaddle him he screams until he can figure out a way to get his arms out or if we give in and help him. He is constantly moving and so its no wonder he is always starving!! It stinks we are forbidden to let him sleep on his side or belly because he loves it!
He is starting to pull on the toys hanging on his activity mat and put them in his mouth. He also has found his hands and thumb. I am hoping he keeps up this habit so that he can soothe himself to sleep!
Clothing: Archie is finally outgrown some of his newborn clothes. It was like one day they fit him and one day they didnt. I took him to meet a few friends and everyone called me out and said -you know this is too small on him right… uh no I didn’t … oopsy! Mommy fail. He is starting to get a few rolls which I am so happy about! His legs are super skinny so we are barely out of the new born diapers still.
Archie is getting baptized tomorrow! It looks like it should be fairly warm outside too which will help. Hope him and my nephews behave themselves.
**Any tips for getting a 2 month old through the baptism?
