Two Months

Look who is already 2 months old!


Aedan here is what you have been up to:

  • You are weighing in at 13lbs, 12oz! Yeesh!
  • You are wearing size 2 diapers. Some of your 0-3 month onesies are too small in length since you have a long torso, in fact you have started to wear size 3-6 months in a few brands. You still wear size 0-3 months in pants, although since it has been so warm here, you have just been wearing onesies.
  • You spend a lot of time on your play mat and really like it. You still love to look at the fan, but you are also are more interested in your toys too. We started handing you little teething rings and you grab onto them and then wave your arms around. During tummy time you kick your legs so much that you scoot off the mat. I have a feeling once you start moving around, you may never stop.
  • During your first month you wanted to be held just about all the time, but now that you can focus on more things you like to sit in your bouncer and just look around, especially outside.
  • You have been sleeping great at night…you go to sleep between 8 and 8:30 and have been sleeping until 5/5:30 every night for the past week. We have even had a few nights were you sleep until 6:45/7. On the nights that you wake up around 5/5:30, you eat for a few minutes and then go right back to sleep.
  • You love to be outside. When we take you anywhere outside you throw your head back and close your eyes like you are taking in all the sounds and the feel of the wind.
  • You have been smiling a lot lately, although you smile more at Daddy than Mommy, which makes me a little sad (I mean come on, I did all the work!). You also started looking at yourself in the mirror above your playmat. It is pretty cute because you start chuckling and smiling at yourself. 
  • You chuckle at a lot of things like Daddy talking to you, Mommy playing peek-a-boo, and being tickled on your belly…it is too cute (I need to get it on video).
  • You are not so thrilled about riding in your carseat. I picked up a little mirror that goes on the back of the seat yesterday and this morning on the way to and from the doctor’s office you seemed to like it (maybe riding in the new Forester will help too). :)


Update: Aedan’s check up went really well this morning. He is definitely a chunk; apparently I serve whole milk. He got the DTaP and Rotavirus vaccines and cried for a little while but was fine by the time we left. He has been pretty sleepy since we got home, but he missed a nap this morning so I kind of expected that. Other than that he seems fine. :)

Jackson was a car seat hater for a while too and it was such a struggle, but he soon learned that it wasn't actually a choice, so he's gotten used to it and doesn't fight at ALL any more :) :) In fact, he'll sit there and stare out the window and just enjoy the ride.
