Hi friends!! Remember me?! I used to blog all the time but now that I am a new mommy I just can't seem to find the time. When Connor naps I always find other projects and things around the house to do. I do miss it though and I miss reading all your blogs so I really need to make this a priority again. :)
Anyways....time is flying. My baby boy is now 2 months and 5 days. How did that happen so fast?!?!! Here is what he has been up to for the past 4 weeks....
Weight/Height- On 7/10 I took Connor to the hospital's lactation department and did a "feed and weigh." I weighed him before I BF him and he was 12.13 lbs. After I fed him for 20 minutes he weighed 13 lbs. That was over 2 weeks ago so I am guessing he is about 14 lbs now. He is getting the cutest, big belly and chubby little thighs :) Not sure on the height. We have his 2 month appt. next week so I will find out for sure!
Sleep- Still waking up 2x each night. We have started giving him a bath at 8:00, then I feed him and he is usually asleep in his rock-n-play by 9:00 at the latest. He usually sleeps until 1:30ish (although a few times he has slept until almost 3) then goes back to sleep until 4:30ish. Then we get up for the day about 6:30. He will go back to sleep around 8 for his long morning nap. Then will take a couple more shorter naps in the afternoon. I put him in his crib for a nap for the first time on Monday and he lasted about 45 minutes...instead of his normal 2-3 hour morning nap. I have put him in there a couple other times but he does not stay asleep. So, I am going to keep trying and hope he gets used to it! I planned on trying to put him in his crib at nights around 3 months but we'll see....
Feedings- 100% breast milk for the past 9 1/2 weeks! Whohoo!! So glad I didn't give up back at 3 weeks. Breastfeeding is going so great! I am EBF but pumping once a day and freezing it so that I will have a good supply built up. His reflux is so much better and we have even stopped giving him his medicine. He still spits up a lot and is pretty gasy but so much better than the first few weeks.
Clothing/Diapers- I told my husband just this morning that we are going to have to switch to size 2 diapers any day now. Size 1 is just about too small. He is wearing 3 month clothing now. And even some 3 month onesies are a little tight on that big tummy ;)
Favorite Equipment- The swing is still his favorite. That is where he takes naps during the day or I will put him in there when he is awake and I need to do a few things. He loves looking at the sheep hanging from the top and loves to "talk" to them. We still love the boppy lounger, although he is getting to be a little too big for it and we love the rock-n-play sleeper at night. In the past month he has grown to love his Baby Einstein Play Mat. He used to hate it and wouldn't last more than a couple minutes. Now he will stay down there for 30-45 min at a time (if he is in a good mood).
Big Moments/Favorite Things:
- Connor discovered his hands and tongue around week 7. He constantly is putting his fists in his mouth and he always sticks out his tongue.
- He has also discovered the TV and loves to stare at it
- He is holding his head up really well and loves to practice sitting up by holding our fingers and having us help pull him up to a sitting position.
