Two Months Old {Sawyer James}

Time is flying by faster then I can catch it. As a mom already I knew my baby would grow super fast in front of me as it still seems like yesterday that Johnny was my baby and here he is an amazing 11 year old but I can’t believe I blinked and Sawyer is already 2 months old. Of course I had to celebrate with a mini photo shoot done by me. How I wish I splurged on a good camera when my other boys were smaller. It makes me sad I have such amazing photos of him and not of them. It breaks my heart when Johnny wants to see his baby photos and because of the fire I only have 2-3 pictures and they aren’t even great ones.

Sawyer Two Month Facts:

Head: 15.o
Height: 22.60″
Weight: 10lbs 10oz
30 % for height
14 % for weight


They told us they made an error on his head circumference last visit so I’m not sure how much that really grew. He’s clearly gaining weight nicely and while he’s still on the small side from our rough start we’re definitely catching back up nice and fast. He’s nursing well now. His reflux meds have made a big difference. I’m so glad I stuck through with breastfeeding it’s only getting easier and easier. I still won’t nurse in public but I’m even starting to get the pump and tote strategy down making it easier to get out and do things.

Sleeping is getting a tad better. He’s waking up on average 2-3 times per night. He nurses and goes right back to sleep. He’s still sleeping in his Fisher-Price Newborn sleeper right next to my bed. He naps nicely throughout the day but is definitely alert much more often. He LOVES playing with his playmat. It will actually entertain him at times for a good twenty minutes. We have two now but the Baby Einstein playmat is the one he loves best as it has flashing lights and music.

We didn’t have a single sick visit or weight check this month which is wonderful news. He still has a little bit of goop coming out of his right eye from the blocked duct but we aren’t putting ointment on it anymore. His reflux is under control and the spitting up in minimal. He does cry at the end of his feedings and the Dr. thinks his stomach is just sensitive and when it expands from being full hurts him.

Here are this months milestone photos. As you can see I likely picked the wrong kind of laundry hamper. He clearly wasn’t fond of being placed in it. From the looks of it you’d think he grew a foot but really it was just an inch. He looks about the same with the Nap Nanny and the Monkey you can’t really tell because I angled it differently. I hadn’t planned on using it every month but I figured why not?

Side Notes:

This month we packed away the NB clothing and finished off the NB diapers. He fits well in the size 1 diapers and we are using both Huggies and Pampers as I bought them whileย  preggers. He is wearing 0-3 months and now at present day we are just barely fitting into them. He had spent the last two weeks too small for the 0-3 but too big for the NB ones.

He is finally smiling for us all the time. He LOVES to be sung too and his favorites are Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and The Itsy Bisty Spider.ย  If you talk softly really close to him and pause he’ll “talk” back. It’s really cute!

    I am all smiles … it was just 15 months ago that I was writing a blog post with our baby’s measurements and weight. … 12 years ago that I was writing them in a baby book with my second son … 17 years ago with the 1st. Time sure does fly! Your little boy is so sweet ๐Ÿ™‚ Looks like he is going to need the shorter / wider laundry basket next month ๐Ÿ™‚ Hugs & Blessings!

  8. He is adorable! I’m surprised (and happy) just how much he has increased in weight. Our boys aren’t even quite a pound off from each other (Wes was 11 lbs. 7 oz) but they started out a bit more than that apart at birth. Which means that Sawyer has really caught up on any weight he lost. That shows just how well everything is going for you and I’m so happy you have stuck with breastfeeding.

    I love that our boys are going through the same stage! I thought that Sawyer was going to weigh less because of the big difference in clothing sizes between our boys. But while they were the same height at birth, Wes is sitting at the 87% in height and he is outgrowing everything in length. I think he’ll be wearing a lot of one piece outfits. He was wearing pants today but they look so funny because his waist isn’t really big enough for that size. Sigh….

    I’ve taken pictures of Wes and started a post with his 2 month update but still haven’t finished it. Sigh….hopefully it will go up in the next couple of days!!

    Thanks for sharing this fun update!

    I just love seeing your lil’ honeyboy! He looks healthy and happy Jen, and that is what we all strive for as parents. Good job on keeping him that way.

    I know how you feel about the pics. although we of course didnt have a fire, we could not afford a good camera replacement when our camera broke, so I dont have many pics of my older kids either. Now with digital it’s so easy to snap a dozen in a minute and not have to Pay big bucks for film and unwanted photos you have from film camera. I love digital now for our grandkids and our younger kids sports events, etc.

  10. I love his wide-open eyes – he’s so alert! I’m sure he’s be a ‘thinker’ when he gets older. I’m anxious to see your next update as the 3-month stage is my absolute favorite as they get chunky and smile/laugh a lot more ๐Ÿ˜‰
