2 Months!!

2 Month Stats

Weight: 14 lbs 9.5 oz (95th percentile!)
Length: 22.75 in
Head Circumference: 16 in

Carter is 2 months old! I can't believe we've survived this long! :) Thank goodness life gets easier as time goes on and I get more sleep. :) Carter lets me have at least 6 hours of continuous sleep every night. One night I even got 8 hours all at once! He must know mommy is a lot more fun to be with when she gets her sleep. Now we just need to work on getting him to sleep at night. Night time seems to be his fussy time and sometimes it takes a few hours to get
him to sleep. But at least once he's asleep he sleeps for a while! We can't complain!

Carter and I went in for his 2 month check up yesterday. I got him to smile at me in his car seat! Little did he know what the next hour would bring....

Carter loves his mommy!

Carter had a rough time at the doctor this time around. He was great at his 1 month appointment, but not this time. I had to feed him after the doctor checked him out to get him to calm down and then again after his immunizations. Carter got two shots and one oral vaccine. He cried through it all. But once I put him in his car seat and walked to the car he was fast asleep. Luckily Carter had his daddy that night to try and calm him down.

But a lot of his night was spent more like this....

Carter had a fever of 101 that night as a result of his immunizations. We gave him some Tylenol and waited patiently for him to fall asleep. He slept restlessly for a little while until I fed him again and he finally went down for the night. Poor little kiddo. We felt so bad watching him and know we would just have to wait for it to go away. There was not much we could do except try and comfort him as best we could.

One more cute picture of Carter! He has found his hands and he loves to suck on his left one as you can see. :)


  1. it's so sad when the kiddos have to get shots and or get sick :( Were counting down till we get to meet the lil man!

  2. Eric weighed 16lbs at his 6 month check up!

  3. Shots are so sad. :( Annalise got her 4 month ones yesterday, and it's just the worst. Carter is only 1 pound less than her and I thought she was chubby! :)
