Hello darlings! My baby boy is growing super fast and is already 2 months old... I can barely believe it. :) Since a bunch of you said you like these kind of posts I decided to continue writing them and it does bring me a lot of joy as well - I think I'll be really glad I wrote these updates after a year or so and I'll be able to look back. :D
Anyhew... as I said, he's growing and developing really fast. I know probably every mother thinks this about her child but I swear he's really advanced for his age. He's smiling and grinning, he can see really well now and follows me with his eyes even if I'm across the room from him. He responds right away to my voice or the voice of daddy. He's also grasping with his hands all the time and putting them in his mouth. I couldn't be a prouder mommy! :)
We had the hip ultrasound last week (it's a standard screening test in our country) and his hips are fully developed, no issues whatsoever. He was also really good at the doctors - he slept almost all the time and woke just for the exam. He's now 61 cm long and weighs a whooping 5750 g - such a big boy!
He's also been sleeping in his crib for more than 2 weeks - no more sleeping with mommy which I'm really happy about. I loved sleeping with him but I also love the fact that he can fall asleep without me. And not only that... he's been sleeping through the night for over a week now. Am I a lucky mom or what? I just hope this trend continues and we won't have any problems with sleeping in the future. I also hope that he'll cope well with the whole teething process, we'll see... Thankfully he hasn't been ill so far and I'd like to keep it that way. Crossing my fingers that the vaccinations at 3 months won't do too much 'damage'.
I'm still breastfeeding him even though he really doesn't get much milk from me (some is better than none). He's become a bit lazy and doesn't nurse quite the way he used to so I express the remaining milk in a bottle and give it to him along with the formula. He's been eating 160 ml + my boobs and seems to be content with just 4-5 meals per day.
Two days ago there was a new 'milestone' - he laughed out-loud. This wasn't the first time but he always laughed out-loud in his sleep, never when he was awake, never on purpose. And now he did that - I was making some silly faces and didn't just smile at me but laughed. It was too cute for words. :) And he also started to 'call me' - not with real words (he's not that advanced) but with sounds. He now wakes up in his crib without crying, he just stares at his mobile and kind of 'talks to himself' for a while but after a couple of minutes he starts calling me - it sounds kind of 'aaaaahhh' and then a pause and then again, until I come and get him and he starts smiling. :) It makes my heart melt...
I also put him on his tummy whenever I can so he practices lifting his head and shoulders up and he's pretty good at it already though he still has some time to fully master this 'pose'.
All in all I couldn't be more happy with how things are developing and I can't wait for new milestones!
