My baby is getting more robust by the day! He has such a cute little round belly, and those wonderful fat rolls on his arms and thighs... (just wanna pinch em') I am not sure exactly how much he weighs but I'm on a mission to find that out. When I do I'll insert it here!
N. has such cute expressions! He purses his lips in a tight 'o', and purses his brow quizzically. And his still bright blue eyes open so widely to watch the world around him! At two months old I am guessing things are starting to come into focus. Today he was smitten by the fan and lights over the bed. For some reason he gives a great big grin when he sees the bath tub. (We EC there.) If i coo to him though, it is quickly replaced with an expression of being bothered. "Mom, I was busy enjoying this rustic 1960's model shower wall... geez- don't interrupt."
He's also gaining in strength as well. He can hold his head up really well. Unfortunately, I can't prop him up on the sofa anymore. The two times I have tried to steal away just for a moment (to refill my water glass or the like) he's catapulted himself over onto his tummy/face. That seating arraingement is out.
He doesn't like the bouncy seat very well. I'm not sure, however, if it is the actual seat or if the floor is more windy and drafty from the air vents. He does however like to swing in the infant car seat. (Precursor to roller coasters? I dunno!) I need to beg/borrow/steal a baby swing to try out. I'm just afraid to invest in an item like that seeing as how my first didn't like them at all and I guesstimate this one will prefer to be a bit higher to see what's going on.
From gift money we were able to buy a nearly-new Ergo carrier. I am SO excited to use it. I have had to modify it with a towel roll to elevate him so his leggies aren't scrunched. They sell the infant insert. That'd be a great present... hint hint hint. :) Until then we use a towel happily. This carrier is high tech but sleek and that's why I like it and would recommend it. ( I have heard, you can carry up to 40 lbs in it.. so that's like... L. and N. put together! hmmm... NOW were on to something...) Needless to say, I'm enjoying having my arms back.
L. had a rough time last week. He started making this HORRID baby cry for attention. My response.. 'You have words, use them.' So, I asked, would you like some attention son? 'Yes.' was the reply. This week seems to be going a little smoother. Over all L. is a GREAT son. He's so cute, attentive, surprising, and helpful. He's a lot like his daddy, and a very plesant child. I'm a blessed mama. I love my first born something fierce. Heck, I love both my kids something fierce. They rock.
