2 Months

Eliot, 2 months

Eliot is 2 months old today. Oh. My. God. Too fast little man. Oh, and is there anything cuter than a baby in a plain white onesie?!?!
What have you learned this month? You have become quite the talker - but only when you're in a good mood! You'll coo in response to our coos...and give us the biggest smiles ever while you're doing it! We've heard you laugh now too. It's so fun to see you try and communicate with us. You're part fish - you LOVE your baths, just sit and stare and splash. Your daddy is the same way - I can never get him out of the pool either. You're a big boy - last week you were weighed at the Dr's office and you weigh 13.3 lbs - that's 96 percentile! I find out how tall you are next week - you may take after your uncle Brian! You don't look big though - you look just perfect. You've gotten tons better at moving your head around, still love to look at windows, love to look at ceiling fans, love new faces, and are starting to get interested in toys. Your swing is your favorite thing ever. Thank god for that swing. You have a fussy time every evening and the only things that calm you down is to go outside (earlier in the evening), nurse, and then put you in your swing. You fall right asleep. I sometimes feel bad because I can't calm you down...but we're doing what works. You've started sleeping tons more - 6-8 hours a night. It is amazing, let me tell you. After the 6-8 hours you usually sleep another 1-3! We all feel more human. I am having a great time staying home with you, loving on you, and just spending time with you. I am dreading going back to work, but I know your grandma will take great care of's daycare I worry about. I hope that they pay enough attention to you...that they remember to come see you and smile at you when you're happy, and not just when you're sad. You've got me wrapped around your little finger Eli, good thing you're too young to take advantage of it yet.


  1. Hi Melissa - I put more info on my blog, but the carrier is the Baby K'Tan. Eliot is precious by the way!

  2. Oops...forgot to say...the info I left is in the comments section of that blog post.
