Baby Beau: Two Months

Wednesday, July 13, 2016


2 Month as of 7/11/16

Weight: 10 lbs 6 oz
Height: 21 inches

Clothes:
Wearing 0-3 months, depending on the brand some clothes are still rather roomy!

Sleep:  
My sweet boy is a champion sleeper! He started sleeping through the night at around 6 weeks old. We're so proud of him and this consistency has made all the difference for us!

Schedule:
Beau is settling into his schedule and doing so well with the eat, play, sleep rhythm during the day. The exact hours of everything change based on how well he sleeps at night, but before his bedtime at 9pm we give him a bath, and one of us reads the next chapter of the Jesus Storybook Bible to him while the other feeds him.

Health:
Praise the Lord Beau is healthy and thriving! NICU life feels lifetimes away and I'm grateful.

Crying:  
Beau's grown out of crying when we bathe him and is now really enjoying it! He cries when his little tummy hurts or when he's really hungry.

Likes: 
the little rattle elephant on his playmat
being told "hello"
being read books, especially The Very Hungry Caterpillar
the sound of the camera when I take his photo
listening to "Under the Sea"

Dislikes: 
Nose Frieda is still the absolute worst for him

Milestones: 
This month we had first smile & first time to sleep through the night! We are so grateful to get to watch our sweet boy grow up. I am so struck by the reality that I only get to experience each day with him one time, it's caused me to be very present during those times with him.

Places You’ve Gone:
Beau went on his first vacation! We took a family road trip to the Texas Hill Country. Beau went to Comfort, Fredericksburg, San Antonio, and lots of places in between.



Beau & Mama's Two Month Favorites

Solly Baby Wrap- This has been such a game changer when on the go with Beau, especially at busy places.

Amazon Prime + Target Red Card- I'm still adjusting to keeping up with a lot of new information about different things, so when I remember something we need it is SO nice to be able to order q-tips, or whatever with free shipping and not have to think about it again.

Water Wipes + Honest Wipes- We've tried lots of different wipes and these are by far our favorites, especially water wipes!

Oxyclean Stain Remover Spray- This may seem like an odd thing to put on a baby favorites list, but it does a great job getting spit up stains out! I haven't used it on Beau's clothes, nothing has really stayed on his.. but my sweet boy threw up over his mama's new dress from Anthro and something had to be done. I washed and dried the dress once and the stains remained so I panicked. The oxy spray came to the rescue and I was so relieved!

The Jesus Storybook Bible- We've settled into our new routine so much more this month, and one of the favorite parts of our day is reading a story together as a family. This bible is so rich in truth.

  2. Can't believe he's already 2 months! I love all your favorites...oxyclean will remain your bff as he gets older. I love Bennett in white and don't even think twice about it because I know I can literally get anything out! (Aka strawberry slushy on his white Fourth of July shirt..out with no problem!) :) :) :) <3
