I can't really say "it seems like yesterday" that he was just an 8 pound 12 ounce baby swaddled in a hospital blanket....because it really does feel like ages ago that I had him- it IS true that you forget all the labor and recovery nightmares so quickly and time literally moves so fast when you look back. Jackson is officially 2 months old, and so much has changed, every week we are blessed with a new "action" of his- this past week it was sleeping up to SEVEN hours in a row at night!
Age: 8 Weeks
Weight: 10 lbs+ (I need a scale I guess.)
New "Thing": Stretching! It gets a little ridiculous in the mornings, he'll stretch his arms over his head over 20 times!
Likes: Ok NOW we LIKE being swaddled...at all times. Whatever baby wants, baby gets. Bathtime is also becoming more soothing as he gets used to it, he kicks at the water splashing all over Dad ; )
Dislikes: His hair being dried off after the bath.
Mommy Likes & Dislikes: All the smiles I get in the morning! Plus he's in his best mood after a good night's sleep, probably my favorite part of the day with him : ) Dislikes: Neighbors cutting down trees with chainsaws during nap time...and short naps.
Sleeps: We are officially moved into his co-sleeper for nighttime and cribs for naps! The "whale" sounds on the Sleep Sheep are also the current fave, therefore I've ordered another sheep- this one is mini-sized for traveling!
Changes in Mood: Now that we've established a better nap schedule he's so much more pleasant when Travis comes home from work, although we are still experiencing a little bit of the "witching hour" before bathtime/bedtime....
Eating: He is up to 5 ounces now every 3 hours, and 6 ounces before bath time!
Clothes: Footed pajamas for nighttime are a must, otherwise we are now in 3 month clothes although they are still slightly roomy, I guess JW is one of the only babies that actually fits in the clothes for his age that I've heard of!
Looking forward to: Grabbing his feet with his hands and laughing! Although I have no idea exactly when to expect this but I know it's on the horizon!
....this past month in pictures.....
This week he can't seem to get enough of stretching as he wakes up in the morning, putting his arms WAY up over his head as high as possible (and doing this over 20 times, we are morning people in this family but it does take a few minutes to get adjusted to the morning light):
Lunch at Taco Rosa with Auntie Christina!!
Both Olson boys passed out cold
Favorite morning activity....the mobile. Simple things in life. Let's hope it stays that way : )
Lunch at the Spectrum....he was overdue for a nap here LOL
Napping in his crib...baby steps!
