Henry and Norah are two months old now and quickly growing out of their newborn clothes — though the 0-3 month outfits are still baggy, for the most part. Here's how they've grown in the past month:
- Sleeps peacefully in his rocker but hates his crib and his carseat. We're trying to get him to sleep in his crib, but it'll take some time to transition — and right now we need sleep and a happy baby.
- Still has skinny legs and tiny feet but is filling out more in his face and tummy.
- Loves prune juice, surprisingly (and you can probably guess why he's had to drink it).
- Is happiest when he's swaddled tightly and being snuggled.
- Weighs about eight pounds and is 20 inches long.
- Has blue eyes currently, and though it's still early to tell, I think they'll remain blue.
- Usually burps really well after eating and gets the hiccups.
- Likes to look around and is fascinated by his new mobile (when he lays in the crib to look at it).
- Is a messy eater and looks like he's had an ice cream cone when he finishes his bottle.
- Frequently smiles in his sleep and props his fist under his chin.
- Is a great sleeper most of the time and has slept in her crib since the first week.
- Has a loud, high-pitched scream that she uses when she's hungry or has a nightmare — or, sometimes in the middle of the night, for no good reason at all.
- Scoots all around her crib and often ends up upside-down with one arm out of her swaddle.
- Eats really well and usually falls asleep on my shoulder while I'm burping her (which I LOVE).
- Usually puts herself to sleep in her crib if she's still awake when she finishes eating.
- Weighs about eight pounds and is 19 inches long, a little smaller than Henry.
- Is finally big enough to wear headbands instead of just bows.
- Has big, expressive eyes and likes to look around her room.
- Will go right to sleep on a blanket on the floor if she's screaming in her crib.
- Has lost most of the hair on top of her head and is sporting a Franciscan monk look.
I never get tired of kissing their cheeks, grabbing their tiny hands and looking at their little feet. Time is flying by, but I'm grateful that they'll still be small for a little while longer.
