2 Months!

Our little Peanut turned 2 months a few days goes too fast!  Mama started back to work, and Peanut started day care...sad, but necessary.  He seems to be doing well there...he is a different baby altogether from what I can tell, LOL.  Way less fussy.  And I totally was a bum and took what we call OOH (means Out Of Here) and probably worked a total of 12 hours all week, LOL, not counting commute time.  I swear I will actually stay there this week.

Today we had his checkup, and first shots.  He was a trouper and really didn't cry all that much considering.  He cries longer for food, LOL.  Here are his stats:

Weight: 7lbs 9oz (more than a pound and half in 12 days!!!!)
Length: 20" (a 2" gain in a month!)

His head circumference finally hit the charts at the 5th percentile.  Height and length not so much, but getting closer.  However, height vs. weight is proportional at the 50th percentile.  Woohoo!  

He has a lot more periods of alertness and loves to stare at patterns.  He will also quite happily stare right at the wall.  No true smiles yet, but we are holding out hope that it happens soon!  He is even getting some chub!!!  It was terribly exciting (and a bit bittersweet) when he finally was into newborn clothes.

We are continually amazed by his funny faces, and every little thing about him.  I can't believe he has been with us for 2 months already, 9 amazing weeks!!!  

As for his gDiapers - yes, there is some leakage if we don't change regularly at every 2 hours, but that happens with regular diapers, too.  And I can hand wash them really easily.  I need to take stock out in white vinegar, LOL.  

Here are a couple recent silly face photos!  


  1. Oh my gosh, he is just perfectly adorable Gen.

  2. Yay for a great appointment! Starting my cloth diapers soon! Scared! Been doind disposables and I am not sure on the cloth yet...I have prefolds and awesome covers, gdiapers, pocket diapers, and bestbottoms, trying to figure out my favs.

  3. Jellybean was about the same size at his 2 mo! His head is ginormous though! :)

  4. I love those pics!! Specially the thinking one!
