2 Months

I can't believe that my little boy is already 2 months old!  Can I say it again? Well I am going to... where did the time go?  I wish, oh how I wish, that I could slow it down somehow.  As I write this my little guy is sleeping and has been for well over an hour and for some reason I can't wait for him to wake up!  He is getting so big and watching him grow has been the most amazing experience, although a little bittersweet.  He has me trained well and it's obvious that I am wrapped around every single one of his chubby little fingers.  Looking back to the past two months, well I have to say it all kinds of blurs together.  I still spend most of my days feeding the hungry little man and catching up on sleep.  We do try to get some time outside and I will occasionally put him down to do housework.  I am trying to get him used to sleeping somewhere other than moms' arms so that his babysitter doesn't hate me in two weeks but I have such a hard time putting him down.  I love the feel of his little (well not so little any more) body in my arms and watching his sweet little face while he sleeps.  People might chastise me and tell me that I am spoiling him but after 6 years of trying for a baby I have every right to hold my little boy as much as I want to.

Sawyer started really smiling around 8 weeks.  I can't say a specific day because they came gradually but we love to talk to him and get him to smile! I need to keep my camera with me more so that I can catch it but I usually forget because I am having so much fun watching him smile and try to talk to me or his dad.

He probably weighs around 12.5 pounds now and I have no clue how long his is.. I'll just say again that he is very tall.  He goes in next week for his 2 month appointment and as excited as we are to see how much he's grown, we are dreading all the shots!

He has found his hands and loves to try to get them to stay in his mouth.  The other night I put him in bed with me (yea I know.. bad habits... so what I don't do it every night) and his binkie fell out of his mouth and I just laid there and watched while he tried to literally devour his hands. It was the most adorable thing I have ever seen.  I wish I could have gotten it on video but I didn't want to get up cause I didn't want to miss it.

Most nights he goes to bed at around 10.  Wakes up between 12 and 1 to eat  then sleeps again until 3 or 4 when he wakes up to eat again.  Unfortunately he only sleeps until 5 and then wants to play a little bit before he goes to sleep again.  Then he'll sleep until 8:30 or nine and take another nap around 11.  He eats every 2 to 2.5 hours and I think he gets a new roll somewhere every day!  I have to say though that the night I had him in bed with me, he slept 5 hours straight.  I kept waking up in a panic because he hadn't woken up to eat yet.  It was kind of nice but I want him used to his crib.  The past few nights he has been sleeping by himself in his own room.  (Yes, I slept on the floor the first couple of nights... I am still a little bit paranoid!)  It was so hard for me to leave him in there by himself but I know it needs to be done.  I think I would love him to sleep through the night but I would really miss the middle of the night cuddles I get after he eats.  I put his head on my shoulder to burp him and he likes to snuggle right up to my neck with his little nose.  He makes the cutest little noises while he is nuzzling my neck.  I will really miss that.  It is the sweetest thing!

He is still on medication for mild reflux and another for his colic.  He gets really gassy in the mornings because he doesn't burp well at night.  So he usually wakes up in the morning grunting because he is trying to get out all of the toots.  This boy can really fart!!  He usually spends between 5 am and 7 am farting.  He is definitely a gassy little thing!!  Unfortunately, it is occasionally painful for him and he will wake up in pain.  It breaks my heart.  I hate to see him in pain and his cry is just so sad!  I hope both of these issues clear up soon because I hate giving him medicine.  I feel like I am torturing him.

Speaking of torture, he's had a little stuffy nose the past few days and I have been sucking big ugly boogers out of his nose.  This really kills me.  He cries and looks at me like he is asking me why I would do that to him. It is so sad!  It seems to be clearing up though and there haven't been any fevers or coughing so the doctor says it isn't contagious... thank goodness!

Below are some more recent pictures... Can you see why I am so in love?  Happy 2 Month Birthday Little Man!

He found his hand... so adorable!

Watching SpongeBob... no I am not a bad mom, I only let him watch for a minute. I think he likes the colors.

Sweetest face ever.. Can you believe those lips? Not sure who he got those from.

He wasn't sure what to do with that rattle but it was cute watching him try to figure it out.  Love the onsie!

Don't you even worry about people saying you spoil him, because now is the time to cuddle! Take all the time you want with him, you've waited more than enough time for him and enjoy every second of it! It's even ok to bring him with bed with you to cuddle. Don't stress out about because he'll have plenty of time to adjust!
