Our little boy is 2 months old today, and he has been doing very well. He has virtually doubled his birth weight, weighing over 12 pounds, and has reached several milestones. He is now holding his head up well, doing some mini-push ups, and most wonderfully of all for me, he has started smiling!
He will smile at little things that make him happy, like if I rub his head. But the most memorable smile was when he looked up at me with his big adorable eyes and just broke into the sweetest smile. My heart absolutely melted. Before then his smiles were not so obviously directed toward me.
Another nice milestone he has reached is sleeping 6 hours at a time. It was just two nights ago, so he is not doing it consistently yet, but he is definitely sleeping for longer stretches at night. It’s a nice change from the way he would get up every 2-3 hours crying and demanding milk. His acid reflux is also getting a bit better since we put him on Prevacid in addition to Ranitidine/Zantac, so that may be helping him sleep.
He is also becoming more aware of his surroundings and doing things like cooing, reaching out, and staring at lights and other objects. I’m pretty sure he also knows when he is outside versus when he is home, because he behaves himself and doesn’t cry until he is no longer around other people.
I love this little baby so much. He is the cutest and most adorable thing ever, although I’m sure every mother thinks so of her child. I love just holding him in my arms and watching him sleep. He just lights up my world, and I am so grateful to have him.
