you're two months old, ford!

My sweet Ford boy, you are TWO MONTHS OLD! I know this post is almost 20 (!!!) days late, but we've been absolutely swamped with feeding you and enjoying every second with you. Here's what's been happening with you this month (August and September)...

On Aug. 27, I took you for a weight check and you had only gained 1 oz. in a week (up to 8 lbs., 14 oz.). They upped your formula supplements from 1 to 3 oz. 

On Sept. 16, you had your 2 month check-up. You weighed 9 lbs., 9 oz. (below 5th%), were 23 in. long (25-50th%) and your head was 39.5 cm. around (10-25th%). You got 3 shots and an oral vaccine. You didn't like those old shots in your tiny little thighs, but you calmed down as soon as I picked you up. You ran a fever the day after you got your shots, and I could tell you just didn't feel well. We spent a lot of time snuggling and nursing, and you were back to your old self in just a few days.

You are still in newborn diapers, and you wear mostly newborn and some 0-3/3 months clothes.

You are still nursing on demand and I supplement your nursing with a 3 oz. bottle after each feeding. You love to nurse and drink your bottle, so hopefully your weight will go up soon!

On Sept. 5, you slept from 10:30p until 5:00a. I was so proud of you! You're still sleeping in our room. I just don't think you're ready for your crib just yet. You usually sleep for about 5 hour stretches at night-- sometimes longer, sometimes a little shorter. You usually fall asleep around 8:00-9:00, right when your big sister goes to bed.

Your sister always loved to nurse to sleep, but that's not really your thing. You like to be held and patted on the back to go to sleep. You love when I wrap you up in your Pottery Barn Chamois blanket. You fall fast asleep really quickly!

You are definitely a momma's little guy. You love your momma. And I love that you do! You love it when I sing to you and talk to you.

You are always smiling when people talk to you. You really love it. You especially love to FaceTime with Mumsy; it always gets you in a big-time talking mood!!

You can "oooooo" and "gooooo" with the best of them, too! You are a talker and a smiler. I've never meet a more smilier baby. Such a sweet thing.

Oh, my Ford boy, your momma loves you so very much. There's nothing like the love of a momma for her little man. Thank you for stealing my heart, buddy. You mean the world to me!

And for comparison, AWA at 2 months (13 lbs., 9 oz.) and Ford at 2 months (9 lbs., 9 oz.). :)
