Ryder is TWO months old already?! It kind of like, how is he already 2 months and really, he's ONLY 2 months! Because it feels like we've had him so much longer than two months.
We haven't had his 2 month check-up yet, so I won't have an "official" weight until Tuesday. But according to the not-so-accurate method of weighing us together and then just weighing me, he weighs somewhere between 13 & 14 pounds. And he is getting long too. He's already wearing 3-6 month clothing, which at Carter's is just called 6 month clothing. We need to finish off our box of size 1 diapers, and then we'll probably move on to size 2 diapers.
I've been back at work for 2.5 weeks. We're settling into a pretty good routine - some days are definitely better than others. Most days, he wakes up somewhere between 4:30am and 6:00am to eat, then he'll usually go back to sleep. By the end of the day the routine is usually completely shot. I try to get him to bed between 8 and 9, but then sometimes he falls asleep at 7 only to be up again at 9 and stays up until 11.
We thought he had a dairy allergy like his daddy & Claire, but now I'm not so sure. I have added some dairy back into my diet and he doesn't seem to be any fussier or have any more difficulty than when I wasn't eating any dairy. But I'm still limiting it to be on the safe side - except for today when I ate Cheesecake at my mom's and then made a pasta dish with a creamy cheesey sauce. We'll see how he is tomorrow with all that dairy in me...
He is lifting his head up so much now. And he smiles for us - especially for Justin. He kind of giggles. He LOVES making faces at the baby in the mirror. He has a magical ability to poop up his back and pee up his front at the same time - that results in him having a bath. However, for the most part, he LIKES baths. He is sometimes unhappy after the bath but probably just because he is cold.
Love this little boy and so excited to see him grow!
