2 Months

Deacon - You are 2 months old!!

You weigh about 13.5 pounds and are about 23 inches long.

You wear size 2 diapers and 3-6 month clothes.

  • You celebrated your first holidays this month: St. Patrick's Day & Easter.

  • Speaking of "firsts" you smiled for the first time and also started cooing recently.

  • We are still so excited by how well you sleep! You are waking up about once at night, and it is almost always at 4:30am on the dot.

  • You sleep in our room usually in your carseat or bassinet. Sometimes your Dada sneaks you in bed with us and I will roll over and find your cute little face snuggled up next to me.

  • You really love taking a bath! Bath time and first thing in the morning is when we typically get the most smiles out of you.

  • You also love looking around and putting your whole hand in your mouth when the pacifier isn't in there.
  • You are eating less this month than you did last month, usually around 4 ounces, at the most 6, at each feeding.

  • Your little face is filling out making you look less like a newborn and more like a baby!

  • You are so alert now and can follow us across the room with your eyes, or look for us when we walk out of your sight.

  • Your neck is getting so strong too, and you like laying on your stomach or being held so that you can practice lifting it up.

  • Our family is getting into a routine now and life with you is starting to feel "normal." We can't imagine our lives without you in it!
