I can hardly believe it, but Carter is over 2 months old already! Today he is 9 weeks and 2 days old, so I am a little late in getting to this post. Over the last month I have been trying to take lots of photos of him. I am so painfully aware of how fast this is going, that I don’t want to miss a minute of it. I also don’t trust myself to remember, thus all the pictures to remind me.
So are you ready for picture over load?
Just warning you.
This photo was taken at about 6 weeks. The next photo was at 8 weeks.
As you can see, he is now ready to try out for the pee wee football team.
At his 2 month checkup, he was in the 90th percentile for height and the 96th for weight. Nicely proportioned, don’t ya think?
He is now full of these cute little rolls.
I especially love the one above his wrist. It’s so kissable . .
We are so grateful to have such a healthy, happy boy.
He has made some great strides this week. He is now getting up only once a night to eat. It was three times a night, so I am grateful to be getting more sleep now.
Secondly, he has started napping more regularly. (again, see how kissable he is? Check out those perfect little lips . . . )
For a while there, the napping thing wasn’t going so good. He would only nap about once every four days. On the days he didn’t nap, he would finally fall asleep at five in the afternoon. He wasn’t usually too fussy, but there were days when a nap would have been nice. My job doesn’t come with maternity leave, so there were always a few things to attend to every day. This week he has taken a morning nap and a long afternoon nap each day. What a difference that has made! I have finished up a few projects and I feel better knowing that he is getting some rest. During those long naps, I find it a little hard to wait until he wakes up. I just miss this little face! Sappy, I know.
The third big thing was that he rolled over yesterday. He hasn’t been the biggest fan of tummy time (as you can kinda see in the photo below – no smile).
He squawks the entire time and yesterday he was so worked up that he pushed hard enough with his arms to roll himself over. We thought it was a fluke, but when he did it a second time, I wondered. Can a 2 month old learn things like this? Hmmm . . . . Not sure about that one. I guess I will have to see how often he does it.
At 2 months, his favorite things are the swing, his silky blankets, a flashing musical star, smiling, talking, and obviously, milk. His least favorite things were napping and tummy time.
I wonder what 3 months will bring?
