2 Month CheckUp

We had Cohen’s 2 month check up yesterday – and this included his dreaded first round of immunizations! Dr. Best said that developmentally Cohen was doing great – he can hold his head up while on his tummy much better, his lungs sound great, he’s growing appropriately. He’s weighing in these days at a whopping 11 lb. 6 oz. and is 23 inches long. That is a weight gain of exactly 4 lbs. from his first check up at 16 days old and 4 inches since birth! He’s going to be a big boy!

As you can see from the photos, there is quite a difference from his first appointment to yesterday. He’s definitely beefed up! Dr. Best said he was in the 50% percentile for weight and 73% for height. He also said it was definitely time for him to be in his own room at night…I knew Cohen would be fine; I was more concerned about me! He did spend his first full night in his nursery, though, and he did great! He slept great, and part of that might have been due to the amount of screaming he did after his shots. That had to have wore him out! But we did survive the first shots and the first night in the crib – so his first Valentine’s Day was nothing if not exciting!

When he finally calmed down after lots of screaming, we were able to take some pictures last night and we got some great ones! He was actually pretty smiley and happy.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Cohen & his Bear!

This bear was made by one of my co-workers at the dance school and Tim has taken pictures of Cohen next to the bear over the last 2 months to show how much he’s grown. Won’t be long before he’s taller than the bear!

I'm 2 Months Old!

Cohen has been spending lots of time on his playmat. He’s really gotten the hang of grabbing for the objects that hang above him and you can see the sense of accomplishment on his face when he bats at one of the rattles. He’ll usually have a good 20 minutes cooing, smiling and giggling on the mat before he lets us know he’s done!

On my play mat!

We got Cohen a Bumbo seat over the weekend and we tested it out on Sunday morning while getting ready for church. He looks so cute and considering he can’t totally hold his head up on his own, he does a great job sitting in there and it should definitely help strengthen his neck!

In my Bumbo!

Thanks for checking in loyal readers (aka – our parents)! We will make sure to update again soon, as we realize he changes almost daily and we don’t want to miss documenting anything!

Madison, Tim, Cohen – and as always, Moe!
