Yoga Baby; 2 Months

Joe is officially 3 months old this week, so I'm trying to get his 2 month post up!

In general he's a happy dude. He loves to smile and talk, and is an absolute joy to be around. Of course I'm biased, but he's even adorable when he's cranky. 

Likes: eating his hands! singing songs, being on his changing table, sleeping on mama, grabbing things, kicking, flying 

Dislikes: Being left alone, being on his tummy for too long

Sleeping? No complaints from me. We did get a fluke 7 hour stretch when he was 2 weeks old but around 2 months he consistently slept 4/5 hrs in one stretch and then another 3/4 after. Bedtime was 11pm (usually) because that's when mom and dad go to bed, which meant he was usually up between 3 and 4 and up for the day around 8 or 9. 
He definitely likes to party in the wee hours of the morning, but I started putting him down while drowsy and letting him soothe himself all the way into sleep.

Accomplishments:  Aside from being a total tummy time rockstar, my little guy started grabbing things. Usually not on purpose, but he was very interested when he first noticed his hand holding a blanket and moving closer to his face. He's also ended up eating his blanket a couple of times because it was in his hand. 
He rolled front to back a couple of times but it wasn't on purpose ;) 

In other news:
He had his first round of shots at 2 months and 5 days. He screamed when he got them, and he screamed for longer a few hours later when his little legs were sore. He was a total champ though. Got some Tylenol and fell asleep wrapped up on his mama. 

Motherhood is such a trip! Ha! I still look at him and can't believe he's mine. Especially as he gets bigger, I can't believe he was ever the size of a poppy seed.
