People say that time flies when you are having too much fun. Well, it seems like time flies the fastest when you are busy (and you love what you do!). Just like that, time flew so fast, and my baby is now two months old! I swear it still feels like he just made his big debut.
Two months may just be a short time, but I have never felt so fulfilled and happy, especially since I have seen our baby boy Josiah achieving different milestones again and again! So what did my baby managed to do for his second month?
Well, of course, he grew bigger and got heavier! He is now 22 inches long and weighs 2.6 lbs. And just when I thought that my heart is already full, it just got fuller! This month, he managed not just to smile back but to share a giggle or two! … and if I may add, it is the most beautiful sound EVER. And it seems like he has gotten my love for talking because he also loves to share his stories through babbles and cooing. Seriously though … holy batman, this child loves to talk and loves to wake me up just to “chat”. While I dislike getting my sleep cut short (especially as a sleep deprived mom), I’d do it in a heartbeat over and over again when it means getting awakened to see Josiah’s beaming eyes and sweet smile.
According to his pediatrician, this is the time when he will start to see colors and things. And boy, was she right! In fact, he is already following us with his eyes. His dad claims that baby boy knows exactly where I am and follows the direction I am going to or coming from. In addition to that, he has also learned to respond to colors and light of the TV.
This month, his tummy time has become more exciting too as he is now able to hold his head up even for a brief moment. The only problem is that he doesn’t seem to be a big fan of his tummy time. He’ll coo and wriggle a bit before he starts crying out for help. On the other hand (pun intended) he also loves to put his hands in his mouth. Aside from trying to munch his hands over his mittens, what he seems to enjoy the most is the orange flavor of his vitamins!
It is true that every month with your newborn is worth celebrating because you are starting to get to know them more. Josiah King’s milestones are some of the things that I look forward to every month, and I honestly can’t wait to share them all with you. So if you enjoy them as much as I do, please stay tuned for his third-month milestone update.
