Gosh I cannot believe that it has been 2 months since Monkey has arrived! Time is flying by and I am enjoying every minute I spend with him. As the days go by, he gets cuter and cuter with every smile and laugh.
At the 2 month well checkup, he weighs 12 pounds 1.5 ounces and 23 ½ inches long. The pediatrician is pleased with how well he is growing. She ordered another head ultrasound to compare to his 1 month, which was normal, as his head is measuring in the 97 percentile. She reiterated that if the ventricle issue didn’t come up during my pregnancy, she would never send us to get an ultrasound.
The pediatrician also gave me the green light to feed on demand! Which is good and bad…good, because I don’t have to worry about feeding him every 3 hours; bad because sometimes my boobs gets engorged! Thank goodness for my handy breast pump, as it has allowed me to grow my freezer stash of breast milk
As of now, Monkey is still sleeping in the bassinet in our room, but we are going to start the transition to the crib, which scares me. I love having him in our room and knowing that I can just roll over in the middle of the night and check on him. The nursery is right next to the master bedroom, so it will be easy for me to check on him during the night.
We have a nice nighttime routine going, he gets into his pajamas and fed around 9:00, then the goal is to put him to bed by 10:00. He has been sleeping for 7 straight hours, which has simply been heaven! It allows me and daddy to get some much needed rest at night, especially since I am going back to work soon.
Monkey now smiles at everyone, which is the best sight, however it is hard to catch a smile on camera. He also likes to stick on his tongue, which he finds to be very funny. Monkey enjoys tummy time and can hold his head up for a while, without any assistance. He also enjoys pulling my hair, which is why I have my hair in a bun 99% of the time.
I just cannot believe how much my little guy has grown, since the day he was born. I am soaking in all of the milestones, firsts, etc. with him, because before I know it, he will be walking and talking.
