Remington James :: Two Months Old







I can’t.. even.. deal!  That smile!

A month has gone by and this guy is already becoming such a ham!  He loves putting his arms up as if to say, “Yay!  Look at me!  I’m getting so big!”  Today we had our two month checkup at the pediatrician.  He weighed 14 pounds 2 ounces and is 26.5 inches tall.  That is two pounds heavier and 2 inches taller than Bennett was at two months!  Wow!  Remy got the same three shots that all babies get at two months and took the first two like a champ and cried for the third (just like big bro).  He won’t have another appointment until four months- so no weight nor height for the next update :(

Do you guys remember Bennett at two months?  He was so serious, ha ha ha!  Remy has hit some milestones such as tracking really well with his eyes.  He will follow everyone around with his eyes like a hawk!  He is also smiling a lot!  Way more than Bennett did at this age, but now that I see how much Remy eats and the fact that we are supplementing formula along with breastfeeding, I think Bennett was just starving (I’m being facetious) the whole time he was a baby… poor guy.  If he would have taken a bottle maybe he would have smiled more because he could eat more! ;)

Remy is lifting his head like a pro.  He is sleeping in his own crib, in his own room.  Now, so far this has been a game changer for us (Husband & I).  It was a game changer with Bennett as well, but Bennett was still waking 2-3 times a night to eat (again, never took a bottle or formula) where as starting last Friday, when we put Remy in his own room, a habit has begun were he only wakes up one time a night- and it’s been almost a week of this!  Two nights ago he completely slept through the night!  When he wakes I mostly think he is upset because his diapers are saturated, but I can usually change him, feed him, and then put him right back down to sleep.  It’s so nice!

Other than that, he’s just a typical little dude.  Hanging out.. enjoying life outside the womb.  Crying, eating, pooping, sleeping, repeat.

At his next appointment we will be going as a team with Big Brother Bennett.  Bennett will be two (WHAT?!?) on that day and Remy will be four months the very next day.  All the shots are going to be crazy- the crying will be intense- but we will get through it!  I’ve already started planning big bro’s birthday party.  It’s going to be a fun one!

I guess that’s it for now, hope everyone has a nice weekend!


3 Weeks New :: Remington James


This little chunk of love!!

I’m not going to write too much because I plan to start his monthly updates (just like I did with Bennett) next week, but I just wanted to freshen up my blog with some new pictures that I took of my dark & handsome little man this morning.


^^ That stork bite on the right eyelid- I want to remember it forever if it ever fades away.  My mom says I had the same exact thing when I was born and mine disappeared. ^^


^^ And of course I had to include a picture of his sweet baby toes!! I’m obsessed! ^^

Check back next week for his ONE MONTH update!

Oh Boy! It’s another BOY!
