Joycelen - Two Months Old


Joycelen,

You turned 2 months old on May 5th - just one day before your cousin Trevor's 5th birthday. At his birthday lunch, you enjoyed the teeniest bit of frosting. Just like your Mama, you loved it. I hope this is not the beginning of a life long sweet tooth. Here are your milestones for this month:

· You are weighing close to 10 lbs, based on Mama's weighing methods (Mama stands on the scale and gets her weight, steps off, picks you up and then steps back on the scale).
·Papa Babo measured your length and you are around 22 inches long.
· After developing some mild reflux, we have reduced your bottles to 3 ounces with 1 teaspoon of rice cereal. You are still eating every 3 hours but have little to no tummy troubles now.
· You are wearing 0-3 months clothes and size 1 diapers.
· You are still a champ at sleeping - Nana Nancy says that you take at least two naps a day, usually 3 hours each time. And you are sleeping from 10:00 to 6:00 a.m. with Mama and Daddy.

In the last month, you have developed even more of a personality. When your Aunt Lane holds you, you like to stuck your tongue out at her, and then blow spit bubbles. You tend to jabber at your grandparents, and follow your cousins' every move.

You have started noticing the television, and seem to enjoy watching sport center with your Daddy (you turn your head towards the t.v. when you hear the intro music and look away when it goes to commerical). You are quick to give smiles to Mama and Daddy, and love babbling at Mama while we drive in the truck.

During tummy time, you did these mini pushups....lifting your head, neck, and shoulders off of the floor. Both of your Nana's seem to think you will be an early crawler and walker....Mama is kinda hoping you stay still (and small) just a little while longer.

Love,

Mama & Daddy
