WHERE DID THE TIME GO. seriously. It's like I turned around to throw some more laundry in the wash and my baby grew into a little man! Okay, not a little man exactly, but a 12 pound infant!
We went to visit the pediatrician today and our little dude is right on track as far as growing goes! he is 12 pounds, 1 ounce, and 23 1/4 inches tall! he was a tough little guy and got 5 more vaccinations today! and his doctor said that we should start letting him sleep in his own room now ... and i cried on the inside a little bit. I think we'll wait a little bit longer before we move him down the hall...
My baby is definitely growing up - way too fast for my liking.
In his second month of life, Grant had a lot of firsts (of course!) and learned some new tricks:
-he smiles really well now... in response to sounds, touch, and farts, and "laughs" often
-he's still a grunter! everyone always thinks he's trying to poop but i promise you, he is not. (he has liked to make noise since the day he was born!)
-he recognizes his momma and daddy's voices and looks around the room when he hears us
-loves "tummy-time." sometimes all he does is just laying and eating his hand but he loves being on his belly
-sleeps between 5-8 hours at night between feedings! *spoiled parents*
-he has outgrown his newborn-sized clothing and is now on to 0-3 month stuffs! meaning.. he can fit into some shorts, and even shoes!
-he had his first party where all his friends came to his blessing and to see him in his little white suit!
-he even survived his first "sick day" today - the vaccinations caused a fever for our Boy. poor fellow was so exhausted and hot and just didn't feel well all afternoon. but he survived! and I made it out in one piece, too!
