2 Months Old

Oliver is 2 months old today! I think all his "newbornness" is pretty much gone (sniff sniff) and his little personality has started coming out (yea!) over the past few weeks.

He is a very happy boy with lots of smiles to give. Especially when he has a full belly.

He is really enjoying his toys with faces, like Mr. Octopus and Mr. Giraffe on his little gym. They really make him smile and talk. He is very happy playing on his little gym. After he eats, I usually lay him on it and he will stay there for close to an hour, just happily batting at and talking to the hanging toys. He can grab onto some of them a little bit as well.

Oliver is sleeping great at night. He usually goes down between 10-11pm and then sleeps for a 6-8 hour stretch. Then he lays back down until around 8-9am. So, I am only getting up once with him at night. And I feel like I am still getting to sleep in. He usually just takes little cat naps during the day. He will sleep for about 30-45 minutes at a time. Maybe a little longer if I pick him up when he is starting to wake up and snuggle him a little longer. But, hey, if he is sleeping good at night, I don't really care what he is doing during the day. He just kind of goes with the flow.

We don't go to the doctor for his 2 month check up until next Wednesday. But, at Madeline's last appointment on Dec. 23rd, we put him on the scale and he weighed 12 lbs 1 oz. So, he is eating well and growing. Happy 2 month birthday, Oliver! We sure do love you lots! You bring so much joy to our family.

Every one of these pictures just melt my heart! He's so cute and getting so grown up. The last b/w one is absolutely precious:)

Sweet post on little Oliver! I love his little faces. :) It was good to hear about his catnaps during the day. I felt like maybe Haley was the oddball out because that's how she naps too. Just on and off when she feels like it. Thanks for reassuring this new mommy! Oh and I have no idea why I chose to do laundry on my day to myself! Next time I think I'll sit on the couch with a bowl of icecream. :)
