Jordan Matthew: Two Months

Today Jordan is 2 months old. He weighs 11 lbs 9 oz and is 22 7/8 inches long. His head circumference is 39 cm. He still has very little hair but what he has has a reddish tint to it. He still has hair on his ears and wrinkles on his feet. His eyes are blue.

He sleeps best on his stomach on my chest. This is how he falls asleep most nights. He sleeps swaddled in his bassinet in our bedroom still. He sleeps with his NICU frog on his belly. He wakes once a night to eat, usually around 3 or 4am. We are usually up for an hour and a half from the time he wakes up to the time he goes back down. This includes: nursing, changing his diaper, and snuggling on the couch until he falls back asleep. He typically takes one or two longer naps during the day but some days he takes short cat naps all day. He gets very cranky if he’s tired, just like his mama!

I am very proud to say that he is still 100% breastfed. He sometimes nurses great and other times I would be surprised that he got any milk out but he seems satisfied. He likes to pop on and off. He sometimes only eats on one side and other times, he takes both.

He typically has just one major poop a day. Once in awhile he will have some small ones as well. Unfortunately, the time of this blow-out varies so we aren’t always prepared!! I am sad to say he has been wearing mostly disposable diapers lately. I am trying to get him back into cloth though – which is becoming easier now that he’s growing and fits better into his one size diapers. We quickly run out of our four newborn fitteds!

Jordan actually enjoys doing tummy-time. He is getting very good at holding his head up. He can roll from his belly to his back. He has started taking an interest in looking at toys while on his tummy (or even on his back) and he’s even looked at and smiled at himself in the mirror.

He smiles often, we love it! He also coos. Sometimes it sounds like he’s laughing, even though he’s not. Sometimes he gets VERY excited, it’s so cute! And I certainly don’t want to jinx anything but he seems to have outgrown his “fussy time.” Whew!

Jordan likes: snuggling, watching his big brother, looking at blinds/things with stripes, his moby wrap, lights, soothies pacifiers.

This past month we celebrated Jordan’s first Thanksgiving. He looked so cute in his Thanksgiving outfit, complete with a turkey on his butt!

He goes in for his two month appointment tomorrow (actually, both boys do!) so I will be sure to update about how that goes then.

Here are some pictures from this past month:

  1. Wow, 2 months! He is so cute. Congrats on getting through the fussy stage and for continuing to breastfeed!

    I have to ask where you got those cute doggy "Big Brother/Little Brother" shirts. Do they come in a sister version?


Thanks for the love! I appreciate all feedback!
