2 months

Jax turned two months old on Monday. He went to the doctor to get his shots. It was awful. In reality he only cried for about 15 minutes and seemed to have forgotten the whole thing by the time we got home; but when the needle went in my baby's leg and that little blood droplet oozed out I almost cried. Luckily I held it together and just picked him up and patted his little back. He weighed 12 pounds and was 23 and a half inches long. That puts him in the 65th percentile for height and the 53rd for weight.

One Month Two Months

Since he is two months old I decided we should try letting him sleep in his own room so we could get more sleep. Yeah right, I think I was half awake all night worrying about him. His room shares a wall with ours and he is probably no more than 20 feet away when he's in there but I missed him! I had the monitor on the night stand listening for every breath. How did I become this person. I never thought I would be a worrying mom, I thought I would be "cool". Being a mom sure changes a person. Jackson did very well in his crib. He has been sleeping from 8pm to 3am but last night he got up at 1am, 3am, and 6am. I think that is pretty good for his first night in the crib. We'll see how tonight goes.

I also went bra shopping since I'll have to return to work in a few weeks and I don't think the nursing camisoles I have been wearing will be appropriate at work. Let's just say that my new bra size is not something I would have ever imagined buying. They are certainly nothing you would ever see a Victoria's Secret model wearing but not bad for nursing bras. Motherhood was having a sale, buy 3 get one free, so I ended up with 3 work bras and a sports bra for $60.

So many new adventures as a mom!

  1. Jackson is so cute! Good for you moving him to his own room. I said I would do it at 7 weeks, then 2 months, but finally did it at 3 months. As you said, it is amazing how much the little guys change you. I have become "that mom" too.
