Elijah: 2 Months

Nov. 12, 2012

This month we finally cleared up your jaundice (breast milk jaundice this time) and baby acne, but now you are getting some dry skin in this cold month.  Your hiccoughs are happening less, but you do still get them.  You started the month banging your head into our shoulders a lot, but have really started holding up your head pretty well now.

You have ridden in the Moby wrap quite a few times now, and seem to like it (you always fall asleep).  You like to sleep in your swing often too.  When awake you like to hold onto toys, and have started liking being able to watch your mobile.  You have learned how to give really big smiles when you want picked up or played with.  They are so precious.

Weight:  13 pounds, 9 ounces
Length:  23.75 inches
Size:  We're into size 2 diapers, and your 3-6 month clothes. 
Feeding:  You eat every few hours now (for about 15 minutes a time).  You have experienced a bottle now and took right to it.  Some nights you will go almost 6 hours before waking to eat.  You burp really well.
Sleeping:  You are still such a good sleeper.  You end up sleeping with mama a lot after your early morning feedings, but spend the first half of the night in your bassinet.  We don't swaddle anymore, but have started the sleep sacks.
Likes:  Toys that rattle, Mobile, mama, Dada, and big brother
Dislikes:  Cori barking at the mail man
