Hello Sweet Cheer: Titus Matthew | 2 months

Titus Matthew | 2 months

Once again, I've attempted to sit down and write all about how I feel about the way Titus entered the world - and I haven't been able to finish it. I have actually started it though, so that's progress! I'm not promising anything but definitely be expecting that post soon!

For now, an update!


A G E: Two months!

W E I G H T: At his 2 week doctor visit he weighed 9 pounds, 2 ounces. I weighed myself on our scale at home holding him and did the math and according to that he is 14 pounds, 13 ounces! I guess that breastmilk is really working!! I'll get his official weight at his 2 month appointment.

L E N G T H: At birth, 22 1/4 inches...he has his 2 month appointment on the 23rd so I will update this post then!

S I Z E: We are well into size 1 diapers! He wears mostly 3-6m/3m with a few 0-3m and a few 6m. Based on brands, he fluctuates a bit but is mostly in 3-6m/3m!

E Y E S: Dark brown!

H A I R: Dark brown!

S L E E P I N G: He is still not sleeping or eating with much consistency...we are working on it. I'm trying to take note of when he eats and sleeps as often as possible! In general, he goes down between 7 and 9, eats around 11, up again between 2 and 4, and again around 7 or 8. So, our nights are fairly consistent and he goes back down super well after eating and getting his diaper changed. We still swaddle pretty religiously - his crazy arms always wake him up if we don't! Daytime is always different. He's usually happy in the mornings, eats about 4-5 times throughout the day, mostly stays fussy in the middle of the day and hardly naps :) It's a crazy life but it's worth it!

E A T I N G: Mama's milk! Every 3-5 hours around the clock.

M I L E S T O N E S: Titus sleeps in his crib in his own room! He's been doing that since about 5 weeks old. He is starting to tolerate tummy time a lot better. He used to scream every time I flipped him to his belly on the floor, but now he lasts about 3 minutes before he gets upset! He is holding his head up better and better every day! Loves laying on the floor looking up at toys! He has also started following me with his head a lot more often and even fusses when I leave the room! He is growing and changing so much every day!

O U T I N G S: Still goes to church, the grocery store, etc. but this month he went in the pool for the first time (and second and third and fourth time) and he went shopping at the outlet mall with mommy and daddy!

F A V  T O Y S/A C T I V I T I E S: Loves chillin' in the rock-a-roo, laying on the floor playing and being held by anyone (but especially loves Mommy, Daddy and Libby!)

W O R D S/S O U N D S: Coos, screams and cries! He is making a LOT more noise this month than last. He makes the sweetest happy sounds!

N I C K N A M E S: Titus boy, Love bug, Bug, Lovie, Titus Almightus, Sweet boy

F U N N Y  M O M E N T S: He pouts his bottom lip out every time Daddy kisses his cheeks when he hasn't shaved recently! Poor babe.





That would be me trying to get a smile out of him! ;)

Mama is beside herself, it's so crazy that our boy is already two months old! We love him more every day. My favorite times with him are our morning nursing sessions. He's usually still really sleepy and I like to take that time to pray over him, pray through scripture verses and for his future! It's such a sweet time of day for us.

Here are some more photos from the last month!






































We are so in love with our sweet boy!
