Asher is...Two Months Old!


You turned two months a few days ago on July 2nd so I am late to post.  Your current nicknames are Bubba, Buddy, Simba, Ash, Ashtag, and Baby Boy.   You still love your boppy lounger (starting to outgrow it now), swing, rocking motion, going on stroller rides (although it has been a bit too hot lately), and now likes looking at the ceiling fan.  You are the BEST travel companion and behave really well while we are out and about.  Right now, you are not a fan of swaddling anymore and go bananas when we try to.  You have outgrown you newborn clothes and diapers and are now wearing 0-3 month size clothes and size 1 diapers. 


Your temperament is pretty cheerful now and you have been smiling and laughing for about two weeks!  You still throw temper tantrums when you want something but other than that, you are the perfect little guy.   You are right on track developmentally- you can grab things with you hands, you smile back when we smile at you, and you make lots of noises!  Keep up the good work!

Growing Pains....

At your two month checkup, you weighed in at 11lbs 10oz and measured 23 inches.  You are still growing like a weed!  Your head is still the largest thing on your little body measuring at 15.8 inches.  Your skin is still extremely sensitive but the baby acne has subsided- yay!  However, you have been diagnosed with eczema so we are working through that.  You still LOVE to eat but now you have started spitting up a lot.  And I mean A LOT :)  You are what the pediatrician classifies as a "happy spitter" though so as long as you continue to gain weight and do not look to be in pain, you will not have to take reflux medicine.  You are still exclusively breastfed on demand and now receive a bottle only a few times a week since you started to sleep longer stretches overnight now! 

You are such a joy and I don't know what life would be like without you.  I literally get depressed thinking about having to leave you in a few weeks to return to work :(  Don't worry though- Daddy and I have a plan just in case being back at work just doesn't make sense for us.  I pray on this everyday that the perfect situation for our family pans out!  God is always good to us so I know things will work out the way they are supposed to.
