2 Months

2 months - 9/29/13

2 months – 9/29/13

Weight
11 lbs 14 ounces on Wednesday (9/25) – slightly above 50th percentile

Length
22.5 inches – slightly below 50th percentile

Health
We had a doctors appointment last Wednesday for his normal two month checkup.  But he also perfectly timed a blocked infected tear duct.  We noticed on Monday that his eye had a little bit of sleepy stuff in the corner.  By Tuesday, it was full on goo, especially when he cried.  So the doctor prescribed him some eye ointment that he is not so fond of but his eye has cleared up.

Looking forward to
GiGi and Grandpa’s visit this month

Changes
He SMILED!

cutie pie

he’s getting nice and chunky and adorable.  He has great head strength (in my totally biased opinion).  He’s started moving his arms and legs a lot and seems to understand that he’s the one moving them.  Today he was wiggling his feet and grinning at them as they moved.

He has always been a chatty baby but he does it even more now!  Tons of coos, oohs, ahhs, and squeaks.

He still sleeps from 4-5 hrs at night, then 3 hours, then he is ready to be awake – He’ll sleep a little longer if you cuddle but that means I have to be awake so we watch Good Morning America in the morning and it gives us time to wake up!

He’s started taking a pacifier and a bottle.  He took the first bottle we offered him with no complaints.  Go Brody!  He will even take one from me which I’ve heard is difficult.  We also give him a pacifier at night and if he gets super fussy but he’s started sucking on his fingers when he gets upset.  Yay for self soothing.  But sometimes he gets really mad that his fingers aren’t doing what he wants – so then we have to give him a pacifier to calm him down.  But he doesn’t really need it – I usually only use it if i’m super lazy because a quick walk around the house would calm him just as much.  Or at night time to let him know that it’s time for bed.

Things he likes: – He loves his bouncer, He likes being held up (sitting or standing) so he can look around.  He still loves looking at lights and bright places in the house.

Things he doesn’t like: He does not like for me to bathe ;). But there aren’t many things that upset him beyond if he’s been left alone for a while.  He’s not fond of the eye ointment that I have to put in his eye.

Activities & Outings:

 We make a great shopping team, we go to the grocery store, Target, CVS, everywhere together.

This weekend we had a doggie playdate with some neighbors and Brody had fun watching Axel play and listening to the adults chit chat.

Last weekend, when Ethan and Natalie were here we went to Hillridge Farms.  Brody had his first hay ride and pumpkin patch picking.

We also visited Charlottesville on 9/15 and celebrated our best buddy’s birthday!  Here is the picture of Clara and Brody meeting for the first time

Clothing Size: We just started wearing 3-6 months.  Brody has a long torso plus the extra bulk of the cloth diapers and we had to go up a size!

Often heard:

“He has so much hair”
“He’s so alert”
“He’s very calm”
“So handsome” (says his grandparents) 😉
