Looking back at his one month photos, I can’t believe how much Elliott has changed. He is so much more responsive to the world around him.
Elliott went to the doctor a couple of days before his two month birthday and weighed 11 pounds 11.5 ounces. He was 24 inches long. He’s still just under 50% for weight but he’s at 85% for height.
It’s pretty easy to make him smile now and even give us one of his adorable giggles. He’s usually a very happy baby.
That’s not to say that he doesn’t get fussy from time to time. He still hates having a wet diaper. He also really hates tummy time.
He loves baths, the sailboats above his bed, and the nautical flags over the changing pad. He still loves it when I sing to him and when we dance around while I hold him. He also seems to like baths. He never cries during a bath. It actually calms him down when he is crying.
Elliott also really likes it when he is talked to directly while looking him in the eye. He loves it when I say “oooo” or “coooo”. We mimic each other and he grins the whole time.
He’s overall much less fussy now than when he was first born. I used to barely be able to make dinner most days, but now he’s pretty content to listen to music while sitting in his bouncy chair in the kitchen while I cook.
Elliott is also sleeping for longer stretches during the night. We now put him down around 8 – 8:30 pm and he’ll sleep anywhere from 5 – 6 1/2 hours before he wakes up and wants to eat and be changed. However, after that he usually gets up every 2-3 hours. Sometimes when he gets up he doesn’t want to go to bed; he wants to play.
He’ll give me this big adorable smile and my heart just melts. It doesn’t matter that it’s 3 am. He’s just so cute.
Elliott is also starting to be able to play with toys. This Taggies mirror holds his attention sometimes and sometimes it doesn’t. It really depends on what kind of mood he’s in. Sometimes, when I lie him down in the floor to play, he just stares at the ceiling.
I feel like I love Elliott more and more every single day, which is amazing to me because I feel like I loved him so much my heart would burst the first time I saw him. I always tell him that he’s my sweet precious boy and that I love him to the moon and back.
He’s changing and learning so much everyday. I can’t wait to see what he’ll be able to do this next month!
