My little Charlie turned two months on the 9th. He has been such a blessing and I feels so lucky to be his mommy.
This month he has started showing some personality. I am starting to get real smiles when I talk to him or tickle him.
He sleeps a pretty good amount but I cant really put how long or how frequent because its hard to tell. He still wont let me put him down to sleep so he is in my arms pretty much the WHOLE DAY. So his sleep is very interrupted. With a toddler in the house and a CRAZZZZY dog, there is not much quiet time. I am hoping we get on a schedule soon so he can be a little more relaxed. I'm just not sure how I feel about the "cry it out" method some people do. Having him turn red to blue from screaming for so long just doesn't sound right to me, so as of now I will live with him attached to me through the day.
Our night time routine is pretty set as for now. If he is not being rocked to sleep by 7:00pm he is pissed! He also loves to be swaddled. I never did it with Emma, but with him he is all about it. He usually sleeps from 7-12 and then will wake up for a feed. Then back down till about 2 and then again at 4 and 6. He is fully awake at around 7. I would of course love to sleep uninterrupted more but as of now this will do. Emma didn't fully sleep thru the night in till she 20 months, right when I stopped nursing so I have a ways to go.
He had his 2 month doctors appointment today. The doc says he looks good. He is 11lbs 9oz and 22 3/4 inches. He had two of his shots and that nasty stuff that goes in his mouth. I could tell he was really not feeling well after. I gave him a little Tylenol before bed to hopefully relive a little pain. I hate vaccines. I of course get them because I really hate the diseases, but they are still really scary to me. I have been checking in on him more frequently tonight to make sure everything is OK.
Emma has been doing so much better with Charlie this month. She gives lots of hugs and kisses and will try to help me with him. Which she is helpful in some aspects.
With Halloween coming I am so excited to have two kids to dress up this year. Also, I am excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas coming so our families can meet him.
Charlie is such a wonderful addition to our family. These past two months have been so amazing.
