elliot - two months in mostly pictures.

ok so this month went a little faster.  i just love this little boy!  and while my days are double the crazy & we're still not getting much sleep, his adorable little face & smile & coos make it all worth it.  cliche but true.

at two months elliot is:

-->  wearing 3-6 month clothes & size 2 diapers.
-->  eating every 3-4 hours for 15-20 minutes.
-->  cooing & smiling & kicking his legs when he's happy {which is usually right after he wakes up & then has eaten.  that's when he's at his best.}
-->  had his first cold.  it's still lingering, actually.  and he gets congested as the night goes on & he's been on his back for a long time.  so it's still making his sleep no bueno.
-->  his longest stretch of sleep to date was 6.5 hours.  too bad i couldn't sleep for the first 2-3 of them... my mind goes crazy at night.  who knew newborn mom insomnia was a thing??
-->  being put in the wrap or the ergo is like a sedative to him.  he would live in a carrier if he could.
-->  picks up on voices in the room & searches out who's talking.
-->  goes to sleep every night swaddled & then put in his crib awake but drowsy after eating.  usually falls to sleep in 5-10 minutes after a bunch of grunts.  i call his grunts his "dinosaur noises."
-->  sam is pretty much the only person who he'll fall asleep on anymore, outside of a carrier.  he loves cuddling with his dad.  it's adorable.
-->  weighs 14 pounds 1 ounce {90%-tile} & is 23.5" long {70%-tile}.

and is ridiculously cute.

love him.

  12. love his little chunky legs (and your nail polish color)

  13. Our babes are so similar. I think Elliot might haves me beat a little bit on weight but not by much, we'll see on Tuesday at her 2 month appointnent. We are still not great on sleep. 6 has been the longest stretch and that was only once. A congested nose is also particallly to blame. My 1st started sleeping 8 consistently at this point, I guess I was spoiled.

  14. I suffer from mom insomnia as well. It's terrible.

  15. Right that's it. I am stepping away from your blog. These pictures are making me broody and I have my own gorgeous seven month old boy sleeping upstairs!!
