Oliver's 2 month update
I've been trying to get Ollie's 2 month review up for over a week now, I finally had it all finished and it didn't save! Anyway, 2 months already, my gorgeous boy! You can read Ollie's 1 month update here.
Weight: I'm honestly useless with this. I always go by clothes & nappy size. Ollie is currently is age 0-3 month clothes and size 3 nappies. Although he is filling his clothes so I don't think it will be long until we move up a size. He's such a chunky boy with gorgeous arm & leg rolls and the most beautiful chubby cheeks! I love a roly poly baby!
What he looks like: His eyes have started to change and they are definitely going to be brown like mine. He's going to be a blonde baby too. It's crazy how similar he is to Ava when she was his age! There is no mistaking that he is a little boy though and I just love his chunkiness!
Feeding: We're still feeding Ollie on demand. He usually has 5oz bottles with a 6oz bottle in the evening. He feeds every 2-3 hours so we need to think about upping his bottles to 6oz and seeing how we get on. He is a hungry boy and I know he'll love his food when the time comes.
Sleeping: I can't complain about his night time sleeping routine, if we time it right with his last bottle he usually falls asleep around 9pm and will sleep until 3am. And once he's had his bottle he'll sleep until 5.30/6am. His day time naps are few and far between, he'll usually have his longest stretch in the morning and then cat nap but I would rather have it this way around!
Personality: He's honestly a little dreamboat. He's a very happy, smiley baby. He does have a fussy period in the evenings, usually when I'm trying to get Ava fed and ready for bed but he is generally a little joy. I can see him being very sociable like Ava was, and still is! We've been going to baby sensory once a week and it's lovely to watch him develop. He's started cooing, grabbing at toys and he loves being on his play mat and hitting the toys
How I've been feeling: I'm tired but happy. I've started my fitness routine again and am on track with my healthy eating, which is hard when my husband is still buying cookies and sugary cereal but I'm determined! I'm back into the routine of pampering myself be it regular eyebrow waxes or fake tanning and doing my nails. I think it's so important for us to take care of ourselves first, we're then in a better position to look after our families.
What we've been up to: As I said above Ollie and I have been enjoying baby sensory, I've just booked us on for next terms classes. He really enjoys it and it's nice to do something together. I go back to work at the end of August and I know that it's going to pull on my heartstrings, something that I didn't expect as much with him being my second baby, I wrote a blog post about it. We have Disneyland Paris coming up in a few weeks so I need to get little Mr's passport off asap! I know that he won't remember it but I'm so excited!
