Whit's 2 months old!

Whit is TWO MONTHS old! Oh. My. Goodness.

11 lbs 10 oz. (64%)
23.5" long (92%)
39.4 cm head (68%)

Whit @ 2 months:
-Started sleeping THROUGH THE NIGHT! That's right, he sleeps from around 10:30 pm to 7 am.
Be jealous. 
-Gaining about 1/2 lb. a week
-Stated smiling! Only a few intentional smiles, but we'll take it!
-Keeps his head up without support almost all the time and is starting baby push ups!
-Recognizes our voices and sees us from farther away. He'll track a voice or follow a face from any direction.  Grandpa says his concentration means he's smart :)
-Goodbye baby acne, hello dry, flaky skin
-It's confirmed: That dimple on his belly is a third nipple! No, I'm not joking, and yes, I think it's awesome.
-Seems to love music. He will stop crying when we start singing, and he likes to "dance" around to Baby Einstein music on Pandora

Mommy & Daddy:
-Daddy still protects Whit against Mommy's "Kiss Attacks." Is it really so bad to practically smother your baby with the force and frequency of your kisses? Really??
-Mommy packed away all of Whit's Newborn clothes
-Mommy now nurses in public All. The. Time.
-Mommy's 6-week post partum checkup went very smoothly
-Daddy started his MBA program back up, but comes home for lunch everyday to make sure he spends lots of time with Whit
-Took Whit to the beach and the mountains and stayed a total of 4 nights in hotels. Whit did really well!

*What's this noise about breastfed babies pooping less than bottle-fed babies? Sometimes even only pooping once every few days? NOT SO. It may be a benevlolent symptom of my milk oversupply, but Whit only nurses on one side for about 15 minutes every 3-4 hours and still gains around 1 lb a week and poops so often that we expect at least one diaper a day to leak through to his clothes. What the what???

*Whit still doesn't keep his hands open very much. Yet despite them being clenched almost all day and night, there are still surprises of lint and hair between his fingers... Why?

He is just so perfect! We love him so much!


  1. Oh I love the bottom pictures he's so cute!

  2. I want to hear more about the nursing in public. Go you! Are you using the tunic?

    And we don't have a copy of Giraffes Can't Dance. We need one!!

  3. He looks soooo cute!! He is the size now that Ben was at birth..11' 10" !!

  4. These are great and he's such a freakin' cutie. Sleeping through the night!!! GO WHIT GO!!!! That's awesome. Glad you are enjoying your little guy so much!
