Two months already?

I'm two months old!

I'm two months old!

Griffin had his 2 month checkup on March 25th. I still can’t believe he’s in the world! About a year ago we had just finished another visit to Europe and were getting ready for the Jimmy Buffett concert. This year we have a beautiful baby boy! I never knew it was possible to have so many moments so wondrous and joyous that they all blur together.

At his checkup Griffin weighed in at 11.6 ounces, was 23 1/2 inches long, and had a head that was 15.3 inches roundish. =) He did very well on his physical exam and the doctor said he’s growing very nicely. He has a little bit of eczema on his elbows but our doc wasn’t terribly worried. I think he gets the eczema from Daddy but you didn’t hear that from me.

Griff is mostly sleeping through the night now. We can usually lay him down at about 10pm or so and he’ll sleep until about 7:30am. Of course, right after I tell people this he usually has a night when it seems as if he’ll never settle down so I should probably quit jinxing myself. =)

It’s hard to predict when he’ll decide to wake up before 7:30 am which is making it hard for me to settle into a solid pumping schedule. If he goes to bed early enough, I usually wake up at about 5am and pump for 10 minutes on one side and 5 minutes on the other. The past two days I’ve been able to get about 5 ounces which I think is pretty good. His morning schedule is still pretty unpredictable so my best bet of pumping is that early morning time. I’m hoping that what I pump is enough to work with when I first start back.

Our little boy has the most infectious smile! I love it when he giggles and laughs and grins. Every time he lights up I can’t help but crack up. He is such a character!

These last two months have been so unbelievable. I’m loving every minute of it!

Scott teases a smile out of Griffin.

All smiles

Right before tonight’s bath we caught Griffin smiling! I was taking care of some last minute preparations when Scott called me into the bathroom. He was asking Griffin if he wanted to take a bath when the little guy gave him a big smile. He must have been excited about bathtime because whenever Scott asked him about it, he was all grins.

It was TOO ADORABLE! Scott says he has a dimple but I was too thrilled to even think about looking for it. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to grab the camera but I know there will be many more smiles in the future so I’m not worried. I’m a proud, proud momma. 🙂
