2 months old

My friend Sarah does fun monthly updates of her little boy and I thought it was so cute. Because my journal writing always slow down when I am busy with the most impt things in life (ironic-because that’s what is most impt to write about) I will use this as my “journal/baby book” Sorry for copying you SarahJ

Ben at 2 months:

right after my 2 mo. appt--check out my cool band-aids for my battle wounds

You are 12 lbs 10 ounces and 24 inches long (75th percentile for both).

You were super tough with your shots and only cried for like 30 seconds and were smiling on the way home

You have been smiling since 5 weeks

You have beautiful dark blue eyes—we think they are going to stay blue for sure—it was touch and go there for a while

You seem recognize your mom and dad

You prefer to sleep on mom or dads chest at night (thanks to that stinking week o’ cold) but are working on the laying on back in a crib thingJ

You are sleeping for about a 5 hour chunk at night--a cold threw a kink in your sleep development at 5 weeks and you reverted back to newborn sleep habits so we are happy with 5 J. You wake up, eat, and then go back down for another 2-3 hours.

You like to swing in your swing

You love walks with BOB

You are a night owl- you are usually wide awake from 7pm until 11pm or 12 am when you finally go to bed.

You love love love the bath time and always have!

You had become quite the spitter-upper till we got new Rx for reflux and now we don’t smell like milk all the time

You are becoming quite chatty and social

You love all lights and will stare at them or bright pictures on walls forever!

You had your first trip to Disneyland and were a SUPER traveler also LOVED the beach and fell asleep to the sound of the waves

You already have a job and help mom work at grandpas office in baby bjorn for a few hours every day while on maternity leave from the hospital

You have been to church 4 times now and love hanging out with the YW on Wednesday nights :)

oh I am glad you did! It is amazing to reflect every month on how much Henry has changed- sometimes I think I will have nothing to write about and I always end up with a ton! And I KNOW I would forget all the little milestones if I didn't write them down :)

His last treatment should be April 23rd, but we will be in Utah for a week for my brother's homecoming and sister's farewell. So we're not sure the exact date he will have his last treatment yet, but after we get home, beginning of May.
