Two Months.

Wednesday, April 9, 2014

We've hit the two month mark! Woo! Beckett is getting bigger and bigger and his personality is coming out more and more. I just love it!

Stats: Our big boy is growing by leaps and bounds. In fact, our doctor called him robust yesterday! He's 24 inches tall (90th percentile!) and weighs in at 13 pounds 5.5 ounces (75th percentile). His baby acne has gone away, hooray!, and his porcelain skin is smoother than, well, a  baby's bottom! His big bright eyes are holding their blue color, and his hair is a dirty blonde. It still has a hint of auburn every now and then, but it's lightened up tremendously. He's looking more and more like a baby boy then an infant. We joke around that he ate the baby because he's such a big boy now! We are now wearing size 3 month clothes although the pants seem to be a little big still. He's still wearing size 1 diapers, but I think once we are out of this box of 1s we are going to have to move up to size 2!
Food: He's still a great eater and still exclusively breast feeding. He's on a very loose schedule but eats up to 8 times a day, every 3 hours + or - a few. We are working on getting him on a bottle but he hasn't quite gotten that whole thing down just yet. He still burps on queue, but has started spitting up a little every now and then. When we try a bottle we use a bib because it goes everywhere. I haven't been pumping as much as I should (or at all really) but im starting to get a little better about it so that I can take some feedings off.
   Sleep: Boy does this kid like to sleep. We are really lucky. He has slept through the night 2x now and it was awesome. He takes a morning nap around 9a-12p, usually a short nap around 1-2pm then a long nap in the afternoon from 3-5ish. Bathtime is at 7pm followed by a feeding and a 'nap', then he gets fed again before bed around 10-11pm. If we are lucky he will sleep from 11p-5am, then gets up again then goes to sleep again til 7ish. He will literally sleep through anything and enjoys the sound of the blow dryer. He will still fall asleep in his momaroo for hours or on the bed in his boppy lounger. He still isn't a swaddler, just a blanket tucked in. We are trying to get him to nap in his bassinet in his room, then he sleeps in his bassinet in our room at night (for now). He will still cuddle on our chests, but those naps are now few and far between.

Awake Time: Mr. B is still very alert when he's awake. He's starting to really grasp onto things and is more aware of his surroundings. He is really strong and can hold himself up when on his stomach during tummy time. He is more engaged when we talk to him and when we 'play' with him. He still loves his bath time too, its so fun seeing him enjoy being in the water!
  Personality: Oh this little boy has us completely wrapped around his finger. He knows if he screams/cries
that we will pick him up, and when we do, he smiles. He is starting to get more and more animated every day. He will coo and smile at you if you smile at him. He's starting to repeat sounds
Firsts & Milestones: Oh the smiles. and the giggling. and the 'talking'. A happy smiling, giggling baby is by far the best thing in the world. He is so full of joy. He also can fit his fist in his mouth because he's into sucking on everything and drooling everywhere (ha!). He also learned to make and blow bubbles. Its adorable but gets drool everywhere! He had his first trip into the city for brunch and got to eat in public (oy). He also went to San Pedro Square (twice!) the mall, Ikea, a few dinner dates out, had lunch at a country club with all my co-workers and boss, celebrated St. Patrick's Day, and helped us move into our new apartment! Oh and more facetime! He's getting better about actually looking at the screen!
Nicknames: Mr. B, Beckett Bear, bebe, baba, buddy, lil chubbs
We love you more and more every day Beckett. We enjoy every second you are here with us and can't imagine life without you! xoxo
