2 months!!

Hello friends!

Seriously Liam is already two months old.. 8 whole weeks… It seems impossible.. but here we are at 8 weeks…

8 weeksHe is seriously the best baby on the planet.

We haven’t gone in for his 2 month check up yet, that’s next week, so I don’t have official stats yet, but I will put them up as soon as I get them.  We did weigh him at home and we think he weighs around 12 lbs and is 22 inches long.  I think he is going through another growth spurt because he has been eating a ton lately.  They say babies need 2.5 oz per lb of body weight.. so if he weighs 12 lbs he needs at least 30 oz a day!

20130325_082113I am pumping between 15-17 oz a day, I hope he is getting at least 15 oz from me the rest of the day.  I’m sure he is, he doesn’t seem like he is going hungry 🙂20130327_063208

He is really getting big now.  My in-laws have been in Florida and won’t be back until next week and I think when they get back he will look like a totally different baby to them.  He is so much more expressive than he was a few weeks ago.

We have been really back with fitting tummy time in.. I am hoping that the daycare lady is doing some tummy time with him.  He does have impeccable control of his head so I’m not too worried, but we should try and fit in at least one tummy time session in a day…  It’s harder now because when he gets home from daycare we just want to hang out with him and see his adorable smile.. that and he is tired so I feel like tummy time would be hard.20130327_063154He is also a very good sleeper.  I’ve mentioned it before, but we are truly blessed with such a great baby.  He goes to bed between 7:30 and 9.. It depends on if we are giving him a bath or not.  The past two nights he has been going to bed at 9 pm on the dot and sleeps until about 4:30 am.  I would really love it if he would go to sleep at 7:30 and wake up at 2:30 or 3 am so he could eat again at 6 am before I take him to daycare. Meh can’t win em all, and I really can’t complain.

This past week as you saw, Caden came over for a visit and here is the video as promised. WordPress won’t let me upload the video so you will just have to go through the link to watch it.. It is fairly long, so I won’t be upset if you don’t watch the whole thing.

Liam and Caden

He loves to dance, which is no surprise because if you remember back to when I was pregnant I told you that he would be the most active when we were watching The Voice on tv.  All the books I have read have mentioned that babies in the womb will have the same temperament when they are born, and it is so evident.  Check out his dance moves… and please excuse my baby voice 🙂

    Your little guy is adorable! My baby is two months on Saturday so it is so fun to see another baby and mom adjusting to the new life at the same time we are. Except… My baby does not sleep through the night, she goes down around 8, I usually dream feed around 10 and she’s up at 1 and again at 4 like clockwork! I’m okay with this as I know she’s just letting me know what she needs at this time, but I was wondering if you had any tricks LOL. Do you sleep on the tummy?
    I feed her a lot during the day, thinking she won’t need as many calories at night also.
    Thanks! And congrats on your little family 🙂

      Aw yay thanks so much for commenting and reading along 🙂 Liam usually eats longer in the evenings to get ready for a long stretch of sleep. I really don’t think it’s anything that I do. I also think that my milk might be a little fattier and thicker so it sustains him for longer periods of time.

      But I also suggest reading Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child. The author’s main point in that book is that sleep promotes sleep. Is she sleeping enough during the day? When I was home with him the first 6 weeks, I tried to aim for around 16 hours of sleep in a 24 hour period. Try getting her to sleep more during the day and see if that helps her sleep longer at night. Also is she sleeping in her room in her own crib? That also helps. As soon as we moved Liam into his room he started sleeping longer and longer… 🙂 I hope that helps! Congrats, and if you want to chit chat about babies and adjusting to new parenthood shoot me an email 🙂 dorsah(at)gmail(dot)com
