Callen at 2 months

Callen's 2 month appointment was a couple of days ago. At 15 lbs, 3 oz and 25 inches long, he is in the 97th percentile for weight and off the charts for height! It is crazy to think that at 2 months, he is the size of the average 5 month old!

Doctor S was very impressed with his neck control and ability to hold himself up/steady. He's definitely a strong little boy; when he's on his belly he is already able to push himself forward with his feet like a little rocket.

In other developments, we had to move Callen from the basinette into the crib because he reached the weight limit for the basinette we were using. The transition has been a little rough; The mattress on the crib is quite a bit more firm and apparently our little dude doesn't like firm mattresses. The first few days, he refused to sleep in it at all during the day and at night was waking up every hour to two hours. Thankfully he's now sleeping a little better at night, for 4 hours and then waking every 2-2.5. But he still will only sleep in it during the day some of the time. Thankfully he will snooze in the bouncy seat or the swing, unlike his sister who napped in my lap for a whole year.

Callen is also now not only smiling all the time but also babbling all the time. It is so funny to hear him "talk." Check him out below. Isn't he just the cutest??



HUGE baby, wow. that's awesome! reading about youngsters almost gives me baby fever again. almost...?!?
