2 Month Update

They boys getting blessed at church.

Now that we are settling into more of a routine, and some of the sleep deprivation has gotten better, I am realizing more and more how blessed I am to have two healthy baby boys. The delivery was as good as I could have hoped for, and the boys are doing great.

Here is a quick update of Adam & Matthew at 2 months old. I am grouping them together for now.. they are both maturing at about the same rate so far:
  • They have been smiling for a few weeks now. I LOVE this, and can't wait to see it more and more.
  • Both are starting to make cooing noises. This is a lot of fun... it's really neat seeing them mature beyond the newborn phase.
  • They are great at holding up their own head. Occasionally they still need some support.
  • During tummy time they can both push up with their arms and hold up their head. (Though hey are not a big fan of tummy time)
  • As of two nights ago, they are FINALLY starting to sleep longer at night. Last night Adam slept from 8:00pm to 12:45am. That's almost 5 hours! Matthew slept from 8:30 to 12:45. Then they slept until 4:30am and started eating every 2 hours again. Definitely a step up from feeding at 8,10,12,2,4, etc
  • They both love getting baths now, so I love giving them! For the first several weeks they were not a fan of their baths.
  • I will post their weights when we go to the doctor later this week. They are definitely getting bigger though!

We have started going out more on our own. I took them to a park in Fort Worth to meet some work friends, and I took the two of them to the grocery store by myself for the first time last week. I put Matthew in the cart (in his carseat) and held Adam in the Moby Wrap. I definitely need more practice with the Moby Wrap, because every time I looked he had slid further down!

Also last week at church the boys were blessed. :) (See above picture)

Overall, I am enjoying my two little men :)

*** Update for weight/height.

At their one month check up on 10/22:

Adam -- 9 lbs 12 ozs. 22 in. 10th %

Matthew -- 9 lbs 11 ozs. 22 in. 10th %

They are getting close to doubling their weight!!

Awwwww, it sounds like they are doing remarkably well!! None of my kids were huge fans of tummy time was like a necessary evil though!

Good to hear about them sleeping, 5 hours straight for a 8-week old babies is wonderful!!!!

Thank you for stopping by Helene! Of course the night after I wrote this post the boys forgot they knew how to sleep longer and have started waking up every two hours again.. But at least now I know they can do it lol.
