Two Months Old

I can't believe Matthew turned two months old last Thursday, September 16th. I want to take pictures of him with a little sign like I've seen other people do, but that will have to wait until next month. I'm already four days late getting this post done, and I don't want to wait any longer.

So, Matthew, here are some things about you at two months old...

You weighed 9 lbs, 7 1/2 oz and were 21 1/2 in long at your appointment last Thursday. The doctor, Dr. E, was pleased with your growth and very happy with your head strength.

You are still holding your breath and turning blue when you eat, especially at the beginning of your feedings. Dr. E witnessed this and said you need to stop! He did say that, but he also said it's something you will have to outgrow. You can do it because you didn't hold your breath once during four separate feedings this past weekend. You drink about four ounces of mommy milk every three hours during the day. You have started going four to five hours at night which is nice. I still don't sleep extremely well because you are right next to me and you still grunt...loudly at times! But I'm not complaining!

You have started staying awake for longer stretches of time, and when you get tired, watch out! You are not happy! Just the last few days you've started being more vocal, cooing at times. Very cute!

You are wearing 0-3 or 3 month clothes, and you are in size 1 diapers. You are too tall/long for newborn sizes now. You are growing too fast for my liking!

You are still a great baby, only fussing if there's a reason. You do great in the car and you love to be carried on my chest in the Baby K'tan wrap. You just simply love to be held. And the truth is, we love holding you!

Here you are on your two month birthday.

And just two days later, here you are loving your bath!

We love you sweet boy!

***I will be without a computer all day Tuesday, but please say a prayer for Matthew. We go to the cardiologist Wednesday for another echo to make sure the holes in his heart have closed. Thanks! I will update as soon as I can.



  1. Ah, look at that little sweetie pie. So glad he's doing well. I particularly like that pudgy, fluffy belly! ha! Hope he stops holding his breath when he eats. I'll bet that's freaky when he does that. I had a baby (I think it was Jonas), who would breathe really fast when he ate. I worried he had heart problems because Anna did that too - but alas, he's fine. :)

    Love to you friend,

  2. So Precious!!!

    I will pray for the cardiologist appt.

  3. What a cutie pie! Praying for a wonderful report:)
