Henry is 2 months old today!
Not much has changed since I last posted his milestones except that he is now drooling a lot, grabbing things that go straight in the mouth, and sleeping better at night. The routine has helped. Henry now knows around 8:30 or 9 at night that bedtime is looming. He gets cranky until his bath, then he usually just passes out. Last night was the easiest bedtime ever. He fell asleep in my arms right after bath time, I wrapped him up, put him in the bassinet, and he slept from 9:30 to 2:30. Then he was back to sleep from 3 am to 6. I hope it stays this way, but the realist in me knows it won’t. I will keep you posted if miracles happen.
On top of that, he’s just a really enjoyable baby. So easy going. I love singing to him, talking to him, prematurely baby signing with him, reading him books, and making him pose for pictures. He’s a good sport.
Story time is another fun one for us. For a 2 month old infant, he’s got a remarkable attention span. I joke with Chris (but also kinda serious) that Henry’s attention span is better than his. When I read him a book, he’ll stare at the pages, even cracking big smiles occasionally. To be fair, he’s most likely smiling at the silly voices I do. I’m not saying he understands children’s literature just yet. I usually get about 3-4 books out of him at one time before he’s ready to move on. This could be why Henry also enjoys watching TV. A little Sons of Anarchy never hurt a baby, right? Kidding. JUST KIDDING. Calm down.
Our favorite book (or my favorite book) right now is The Duckling Gets a Cookie!? Oh so hilarious. Get it if you have kids. Or don’t. You’ll like it anyway I bet. And a big thanks to my friend Jenny for the gift.
So the baby is sleeping great, but what about mama? Not so much. I am so worried about EVERY. LITTLE. THING. all of the time, that I will lay in bed and stew over crap while he sleeps soundly. I need to learn how to turn off my brain otherwise I’ll never sleep again.
