Whitt - 2 Months!

Whittington Ellis Richey is two months old today!  Time has flown and dragged by all at the same time.  

His stats:

  • Weight: 11lb 11oz - 50%
  • Height: 23.75" - 75%
  • Head Circumference: 16" - 60%

Dr. Froman talked to him and he smiled so big at her and cooed and almost busted out a laugh.  She said he was very advanced in that.  She also put him on his tummy & he picked his head and chest off the table which she said that plus the rolling he's doing is a 4 month skill and that's he so strong.  I said I knew that already because he was as strong as a 2 month old when he was still in the womb!

He really is starting to enjoy life more and spending less time fussing.  He nurses 7 times a day and takes one pumped bottle in the evenings.  He is MAD when that bottle is empty.  He LOVES his baths and takes one every night.  He loves to go on walks in the ergo carrier, and hates tummy time. He has started liking his swing. Most nights he only wakes up once, usually anywhere from 3-5am.  He takes a long morning nap and a long afternoon nap with a catnap here and there throughout the day.  He's in 3-6 month clothes and wears size 1 diapers.  He loves his sisters.  They can make him smile anytime they talk to him.  He hates riding in the car, so we barely ever go anywhere.  He is easy to go to sleep if he's in his rock & play, in the dark, sound machine on, swaddled, and pacifier.  He is not a "sleep anywhere" kind of baby, but I can't complain since he sleeps so well at home.  He doesn't much like to be rocked, so I put him down wide awake and he puts himself to sleep.  What a big boy!

Whitt, we just love having a little boy in our home.  You complete our family and make us all so happy and thankful for YOU!
