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