2 months as of 8.27.13! Where is the time going!
Weight: 12lbs 12 oz (75th percentile)
Length: 24.75 inches- (95th percentile)
Mills has gained 5lbs and grown almost 5 inches since he was born!! The nurse measured him twice because she was in shock that he had grown that much. I'm tall and so is my husband so it's not totally shocking but it's crazy how fast it's happening.
Clothes: We are pretty much completely in 3-6 month clothing. He is fully grown out of the 0-3 sleepers because he's so tall but he can still fit into 0-3 onesies and outfits if they are shorts and not pants. It was quite depressing to pack all those clothes away.
Health: He's doing great. Since passing the 6 week mark the hiccups are very rare and he really doesn't spit up or get an upset tummy unless he's eaten too much
Diet: Still 100% Breastmilk and going well
Sleep: Right around the one month mark he started sleeping 5-6 hour stretches and now we are currently working on 8-10 hour streches!!! We were getting 10pm-6am but he's now doing more 9pm-7am. I would say it's amazing to get so much sleep but I still find myself waking up at 4am and again at 6am checking on him because I can't believe he's still sleeping.
Baby Gear Love: Still loving the FP cradle n swing, , Aden and Anais swaddle blankets, FB rainforest activity mat, Baby Jogger City Mini, Diaper genie, Pack n Play, Pottery Barn Sailboat mobile
Likes: Eating, sleeping on mommy or daddy, his swing, baths, going on walks, watching the mobile in his crib, Rainforest play mat
Dislikes: pacifiers and the car seat
Crying: He only cries when he's hungry or in his car seat - if anyone has advice for a baby who hates their car seat I would love to hear it?!
Milestones: First vacation to OBX! It was so much fun to take Mills to OBX where K and his family have been vacationing for 30 years. It was so fun for him to have the opportunity to spend time with K's side of the family and his older cousins
Social/Visitors: We had our first family vacation with K's family so Miller got to see some other little kids/babies and it was interesting to see how he just sort of stared as his older cousins and watched their moves. I can't wait until next year when they can all play together at the beach. He's been out to dinner quite a few times which is pretty good except for the whole hating his car seat. I think it will be easier when he can sit up in a high chair and look around.
Postpartum: I've been doing really well. I got the clear to exercise again around 7 weeks but I haven't really done much yet besides walking. I tried to do cruches last week and OMG I could barely lift my shoulder off the ground. I'm going to try to start running now that our weather seems to be cooling off a bit and slowing ease myself back into lifting/crunches. My goal is run 2-3 times a week and lift/crunches 2 times a week. I'm going to take it slow because my c-section site still gets sore sometimes so I don't want to push it.
