Our Pea in the Pod is Two Months!

Weight/Length:I’m going to guess about 13 pounds. We will know more on January 3rd. We go for his two month check-up and his first round of shots-mommy is not looking forward to the shots. Noah is growing a mile a minute. My dad always jokes that he looks chubbier every time he sees Noah. WE LOVE THE BABY CHUB. His cheeks are just full of milk love. He is the best eater. 

We brought out the bumpo to see how he'd do...he loved it and then he hated it. We will get there. :)

Eating: Mommy’s milk every three hours during the day and we try to have him go four or five hours at night. We had a six and a half hour stretch last night- thank you scheduling. It was amazing and I woke up so confused as to why I hadn’t been awoken to a hungry baby around 4 or 5. It was a very strange feeling, and of course I got up to go check on him to make sure he was ok.

Look at those little shoes! PRECIOUS!

Bedtime/ Awake: This is a work in progress still, but we have more of an idea what his schedule is like. He wakes up between 7 and 8 every morning. He takes two really long naps during the day. We have a dream feed around 12 a.m. to 1 a.m. to make sure he stays asleep and I have typically been up at 4 a.m. or 5 a.m. for another night feed. We do the “eat, wake, sleep” pattern and it seems to work really well with the nugget.

This is a typical look when we go on a walk- have to bundle with this Texas Winter!

 Diapers: He is in 1’s but the belly is making them quite tight. I don’t think length/weight wise he is ready for 2’s, but the belly definitely makes them quite snug. He is a milk gut- similar to a beer gut but only for newborns.  

Clothes: He is in 0-3 months. Newborns are WAY too tight. Those clothes have been retired, and he is officially moved up a size.
Is there a little bit of me in him? Maybe the nose?
Favorites: Snuggling, Lights, Walks in the B-O-B, Bath time, Moby Wrap, Wiggling, and Cooing

Dislikes: losing his pacifier and not being the center of attention

Tricks: Noah is cooing like crazy. We have a video of me cooing at him and him responding like it was some type of conversation. It went on for about five minutes straight. Matt and I were dying laughing. He is smiling and really interacting. He has found his tongue and plays with it all day long. He loves to mimic what we do with our tongue. It’s quite the game. He knows both our voices and responds to us as we talk to him or walk in the room. He can hold himself up for as long as he likes and is looking to almost be able to roll from back to tummy. He’s SO strong. He can grip onto items (my hair is the usual victim). He is a very happy baby and a JOY to be around. I love being a mom and have found that there is no greater responsibility in the world. Noah makes the Clem family complete.
