tuesday: september 18th

this photo is "older" (from the 5th) but i love seeing davey holding onto his rattle. it was the second time i could get him to hold it. we’ll keep working on it!

so today we had davey’s two month check-up. mama was well rested because daddy got up with davey last night so mama could rest up and get some strength back. YEA for daddy!

davey currently weighs…..  9.1 POUNDS!

and is 21.5 inches long

i can’t believe he’s growing so quickly! i knew he was at least 8 pounds, but 9 pounds? no wonder he’s outgrowing his newborn clothing! too bad because some of it is SOOOOOO CUTE!!!

he also had some shots and an oral immunization today. poor baby. he did well with the shots, though. yes, he screamed during them, but he chilled out almost immediately afterwards and he’s currently sound asleep in his carrier. and i’m gonna leave him there until he starts to fuss.

another cool thing: with this weight gain, dr. dickson said davey could potentially start sleeping through the night. so the next few nights in this household will be rough. yep. pretty rough as we try to let him cry himself through a late-night feeding. hopefully it won’t take more than a few days for him to learn this. and hopefully daddy and mama can be strong through the process. (but i am aware that it might take more than a few days. and i am aware that it might still be a little soon. but i’m willing to try. a full night’s sleep on a regular basis sounds AWESOME)!!

with that, have a wonderful tuesday! (and i am currently eating toast with strawberry preserves. my first solid food in over 36 hours – hopefully my body can handle it)!

  1. Wow. Isn’t it awesome to see him grow? I’m so sorry you have been so sick. It’s so hard to be sick with a wee one. I was really sick for 5 days about 1 week before christmas last year. It was so hard. Good husbands are all that can get us through that. It is hard to allow your son to cry late at night when you know just feeding him will stop the crying but it will be worth it. Jacob did not sleep through the night until he was 12 or 13 pounds. Hopefully Davey will do it for you though. I have come to realize that there is no magic to how to get your baby to sleep and how to get them to sleep through the night, just take the clues from Davey and you’ll know what to do and when to do it. You have an adorable little boy! We love you guys!

  2. Poor Tam! I hope you are feeling so much better today. And um, so Davey only only has 8oz. to go before he reaches Keston’s BIRTH WEIGHT!
