2 months old

Ok, so I pretty much fail at keeping up with blogs...but here I am. Orion is almost 2 months old already. Yesterday he went in for his 2 month well child check and had his first set of shots. Seth took him on his own, so I didn't have the "joy" of seeing my poor little baby stabbed by some ruthless nurse. Actually the doctor and nurses are very nice and try very hard to be gentle...I just get a bit upset when someone hurts my child. Anyway, they also weighed and measured him and he is 23" long (50th percentile) 11.4 lbs (50th percentile) and has a 16" mellon (70th percentile). He is getting stronger and stronger every day. I have a feeling he'll be on the move before we know it.

I have just completed my 2nd week back at work. I enjoy my job and all that, but I still hate leaving Orion at child care. He seems happy and content, but I hate not knowing what he does all day...and hate wondering if he's ok and not being able to do much about it. Not to mention the fact that it has made breast feeding very difficult. Have you ever tried to find time to pump in the middle of the day?? Yeah, it pretty much sucks.

Orion does successfully hold his head up and can turn it to look around. He follows things and people around the room with his eyes and/or head all the time. He also has the greatest smile I have ever seen...and his noises can just melt my heart. He is getting closer to sleeping through the hopefully that will happen before too long. The doctor said to just stick to my guns and it can happen in 3 days, but I feel bad leaving my baby in bed to cry. That's just mean.

So that's how things are going for us. I will really try not to wait a month before my next blog. Honestly, a lot of the problem was that I was getting huge bugs with the posting part of blogger, so I couldn't do the blogs from my computer at home. I was very frustrated. I hope everyone else is doing well. Drop me a line to let me know what's new with you. <3 <3
