2 Months


 
karate Bear...
 
a little photoshoot help from Daddy...
 
Height: 24 1/4 in. (91st percentile)
Weight: 13 lb. 7 oz. (87th percentile)
Head Circumference: 15.9 in. (60th percentile)
 
 
Things to Remember:
-You had your two month immunizations Friday and did NOT like them. The nurse nicely let you breastfeed during the shots, but the second she jabbed you it was scream city :(. Mommy cried, too...maybe more than Bear. Less than five minutes later, though, you were a tough little guy. No more tears; you just slept it off.
-You are a regular little talker now. Anytime you're awake, you're coo'ing and smiling. It's the cutest!
-You have been in size 2 diapers for over a week now. Big boy!
-Thanks to last night, your record for sleep is now 9 1/2 hours. Straight. You went down at 10:30pm and woke up at 7:55 am. Yes, we realize how lucky we are.
-You love being held and walked around. If you get fussy while someone's sitting with you, the minute they stand up you're back to your happy self.
-You have completely outgrown newborn clothes (weeks ago) and are now in 3 months. Some of them are getting too small already and it makes Mommy sad :(.
-We gave you your first bottle (of breastmilk) on Friday and you took it really well. Mommy has started pumping and it will hopefully make life a little easier for all three of us. You just want your milk, any way you can get it!
-Stroller rides almost always put you to sleep. You love it.
-You discovered your hands last week and can't get enough of them; they are constantly up around your face and in your mouth. We don't blame you; we love kissing your sweet little paws, too.
 
 
We are so blessed to have such a happy, healthy Little Man. We've had our struggles (reflux/vomiting/nursing) but every single moment has been totally worth it; the fulfillment our boy brings us is beyond description. After Bear was born, we got a precious card from my great-aunt and uncle that now resides in Bear's baby book. The last line reads, "You have the bundle- now comes the joy". Little did we know just how much joy would come our way. We love you, baby Bear.
