Wow! I can't believe they are 2 months old already. And they are getting so big!
Christian and I took Patrick and Payden to their 2 month appointment on Thursday.
Their stats are:
Patrick: 9 lbs 4 oz, 21 1/2 in
Payden: 8 lbs 10 oz, 21 1/4 in
Here's whats new with the boys:
- He loves to smile and usually it's from ear to ear. He especially loves his Daddy and saves his biggest smiles for him.
- Eating is still a bit of a chore. Don''t get me wrong the boy LOVES to eat but maybe too much. He will get so worked up and then refuse to breastfeed. Part of the problem also is that we started supplementing them with bottles when they were 2 weeks and I think he has realized how much easier it is to take milk from a bottle instead of me. It is our daily battle and some days are good and then other times like last night are horrible. At least he is getting 100% breast milk as I am able to pump for him.
- After eating (described above) he is the happiest baby. He will sit in his bouncer and just kick and kick his feet. His arms will also be going crazy all over his head; Christian calls them his octopus arms. :) After about 30 minutes he will fuss; telling us he is ready for bed.
- He is our little Houdini and can get his octopus arms out of any wrap that we put him in. When I go to check on them in their crib, his brother will be asleep but Patrick will be laying there with his arms going wild in front of his face.
- He is getting better and better with tracking movements. He especially loved watching Daddy vacuum yesterday and had turned his head to watch him.
- At about a month, we would describe him as a pretty fussy baby. He is doing better though and those moments happen less frequently.
- He is starting to smile more and more. I was rewarded with a big one this morning after he had eaten.
- Earlier this week, he also had started kicking his feet in his bouncer.
- He is a champion nurser although he isn't taking in the full amount that he needs to. We are still supplementing him a little bit with breast milk.
- He loves to sleep on his side and if he perchance rolls to his back, it will usually wake him up.
