Because I can't choose just one! The first I love because he looks like he is playing air guitar but as far as the two month pictures went... he wasn't having it.
Time flies way to quickly having your little self in our lives! How is it we seem to fall in love with you more everyday? Your second month has been filled with tons of smiles that melt our heart. This month you laughed for the first time while awake. Only once this month but it happened to be Father's Day 6-21-15. You talk all the time and gained a lot more control of your head and body.
Month two was a little chaotic. To start off the month we started you on a bedtime routine. Between 7-8 you got a bath. Afterwards you got a diaper and lotion. You don't seem to mind the lotion anymore. Next we put you in pajamas and swaddle you up nice and tight. You actually don't fight to get your arms out of the swaddle anymore. We then would take turns, one of us would sit on the floor and read a book to you while the other rocked you in the chair and fed you. Once you were asleep we put you in your crib. This allowed mommy and daddy to get a little time to relax before bed. Your typical sleep schedule looks something like this:
- Bedtime routine at 7:30.
- In bed at 8.
- First feed at 11.
- Second feed at 2.
- Third feed at 5
- Lastly, you get up around 6.
|Tummy time turned into nap time.|
At the risk of sounding like a horrible parent, I did co-sleep with you for about three weeks when you first came home. You went back and forth between the bassinet and our bed. Now you sleep much longer and do great on your own. For naps we can sometimes put you in the crib, turn on the mobile and you will put yourself to sleep. We talked about transitioning you into the crib full time instead of just your first sleep at night but the last two weeks were hard because we had family here.
Your uncle Riley and grandpa Carl came from Germany to meet you! They were here for a week and let me tell you, they fell in love with you from the moment they met you. It was very last minute but your grandma Tami had a chance to come up the day they left. She also stayed a week. She left out the same day daddy took leave and we headed to Tennessee. So as you can see we were really busy visiting with family to really get you transitioned.
You are starting to figure out your hands and like having your fist in your mouth. You love lights, ceiling fans and being talked to. You are such a morning person. Your grandma Tami bought you a play mat while here that you love. Each morning after you get up you will play on it for about 30 minutes and then I will hold you and we will talk for another thirty minutes. You got to go to Build A Bear in Syracuse with grandma Tami. She got you a dog that daddy picked out for you.
You hate being in your car seat! Granted, you did okay until our trip down to Tennessee. We split it into two days. We have family in Ohio that we stop and see when we make that trip and they all wanted to meet you. The first half is roughly a ten hour drive and the second half about six. You were okay at first but after so long in the car you would just scream. We made a lot of stops to let you out and stretch but you hated it. For the two days after we had made it to Tennessee you screamed every time you got into your seat.
