Archie's 2 Month Update

Archie is now 2 1/2 months old and it has gone by so fast, he now weighs 14lb 2oz which puts him in the 75th percentile! We had our 9 week checks last week, but I am going to do a separate post for my post natal progress. He passed all the checks perfectly and the doctor mentioned he had great head control and was very strong as he was trying to sit himself up! He then went and had his first injections afterwards, I really wanted someone else to take him in for me but no one was able to, of course he cried... and then I felt really awful but know that its all for a good reason.

He is on 8oz every 4 hours and has 4 feeds a day, starting at 8:30am and ending at 8:30pm and then he sleeps through the night, I am so lucky he has been sleeping through for pretty long now. He is typically a really easy baby, the only time he is upset is when he is hungry or has wind. He is on Cow & Gate Comfort milk due to having problems digesting normal formula, Isla was exactly the same. I think I need to move him onto size 2 teats now as well. 

He is now in 3-6 month clothing, he seems to have quite long legs and I really don't know where he has got them from, me and Perry both have to get short jeans! He will be wearing 3-6 month vests and sleep suits in within the next 2 weeks I'd say. I cant believe how quick he has grown and how chunky he is, he is literally solid and doesn't seem weak at all. We had to take out the wedge in his car seat as he was getting squashed and was starting to not fit in it properly, and soon I think we will need to take the head support out.

He loves looking at his toys, especially his mobile and ones that hang on his swing/bouncer, he smiles and coos at them. He is super ticklish, his feet are the worst he flinches if you even rub them! I have managed to get 3 little chuckles out of him, so I can tell he is getting ready for his first laugh which is so cute! He has been sitting in his bumbo, not for long and of course supervised, he can hold his head up really well and at least it helps with his flat head. 

His eyes are blue, but I cant really tell you what is going on with his hair, I thought it was going lighter but now it seems to have stayed the same shade for a few weeks now. He has super light eyebrows so who knows what colour he will go. He looks so much like Isla as a baby, in some photos they look like they could be twins! He looks like her when she was around the 3-4 month mark as that was when she started to chunk up, so he is definitely bigger than what she was. I am so glad I only bought up to 3-6 month clothing as I think he may be a size up so the type of clothes would of been wrong for the season if that makes sense. 

He is doing really well and everyday he seems to get bigger and bigger, I am so looking forward to watching him grow he seems so content and happy, we couldn't be happier.

  1. What a cutie! He is really thriving! My 4 month old isn't even on 8oz yet and she wakes up at 6am. Still, I shouldn't grumble.
