2 months

We have been so busy, and I am SO late with this post.  Here's my little chicken nugget at 2 months:

I cannot get over how IN LOVE I am with every part of him! He is becoming more and more "fun" (as Steven would say) every day.  He has such a great personality.

- At his 2 month appt he was 14 lbs 12 oz.  I'm sure he is well into the 15 lb range now
-He wears 3 month clothes, but is already starting to wear 6 month
-He wears size 2 diapers
-He coos and smiles and burps and farts
-Much to my dismay, he started sucking his thumb
-He sleeps for good 5 hour stretches at night and will sleep another 3-4 after I feed him (such a good boy!)

The beginning of the second month brought a few challenges.  I was still student teaching and Steven was at home with Arthur.  It was particularly difficult because Artie would WAIL every time after he ate for a good hour and a half.  This was very hard for Steven, and heartbreaking for me because I was gone.  After much stress, and tears from both baby and myself, we figured out that I can't eat dairy while I'm breastfeeding (at least for now).  Since I've changed my diet, Arthur has been a completely different baby.  He is SO happy all the time, sleeps well, eats well and is just a delight!  He has been the easiest baby ever since.  We got so lucky with him! 

I could just smooch that face all day! 


  1. I couldn't eat dairy with Lily for a while, too! I'm glad you figured it out early. It made a huge difference with Lily's fusiness once I stopped eating it. She grew out of it pretty fast, too. So don't worry... you won't have to avoid cheese and ice cream forever. :)

  2. Thank you for the cute updates :) He is just THE cutest little dude. Love you guys!

  3. Glad you figured out the problem; that can be so stressful when a baby is fussy and you don't know why! Hope he grows out of it fast. And I hope New Mexico is treating you well!
