(Gav turned two months old on April 29th, and that is when his 2 mo. pictures were taken. This monthly update will be for months 2 and 3. :))
Sleeping and Eating: While we are not on a “schedule”, Gav has created his own and is only waking up once a night between 3am and 4am, and then he’s up for the day around 6:30am – 7am. Sometimes we get lucky and he’ll sleep straight through to 6am or 7am, but those wonderful nights are rare. I have learned to function on less sleep and honestly do not mind waking up and taking care of him. Since Keith has been very busy at work, I’ve been on the night shift with Gav. He is truly the greatest blessing that we’ve ever received. As for eating, he is still breast and bottle fed and his bottles range from 3-4oz at one sitting with a 5oz bottle during his night feeding. His “stinky old man” gas has severely decreased, although I’m not sure why.
Likes and dislikes: Gavin loves to be rocked by Mommy or Daddy, and gets especially excited when Daddy gets home from work. His favorite thing to do is laugh at all of the silly faces we make. He also really likes his bouncer and the singing frog. His favorite song this month was Take Me Out to the Ballgame and loves when we dance with him. He is getting very strong and is comfortably holding his head up without any support from me or Keith. Since month two, he has been holding himself up on his little legs! They are so strong and are constantly moving and kicking. Gavin is such an easy baby and really enjoys his car seat, stroller, and being in his baby carrier. Lately, I’ve been taking him on walks in both the stroller and the baby carrier and it has been so much fun. He is getting so big and we are very thankful that our son is healthy.
As for firsts, this Mommy hasn’t been keeping track of too much (shame on me), but Monday, May 21st was the first time he really laughed out loud. It made my heart so happy!
