Worth is 2 Months Old!

Our little guy finally started smiling and cooing this past month! He mainly smiles right after he wakes up from a nap (after 10 minutes of stretching!) or when he's laying on changing table and I'm complimenting him... Worth, you're such a good boy. or Such a full diaper! Way to go, bud! and Where's my handsome boy? Here he is!

Worth had his 2 month wellness check up today. He weighed 11lbs 14 oz (42%ile), 23 3/4 in long (83%ile) and his head was 16in (91%ile). He's still a long, skinny little boy! He also had 3 shots today... he screamed bloody murder when he was stuck. Poor thing! Mama didn't cry, which was a surprise because I've been so emotional... I was too busy comforting W to cry. I nursed him right away and that calmed him until we got home. He's been extra fussy since we got home, so we've been doing a lot of cuddling. His pacifier and nursing also helps to keep him happy.

We've done some traveling this past month! We drove to Omaha when Worth was 6 weeks old. Our 7ish hour drive took about 10 hours since we had to stop every 3 hours or so to feed Worth. Thankfully, we found a Starbucks along the way and make a stop there! Worth got to meet two of his cousins and it was so cute watching them hold Worth and laugh because he was a "silly guy."

Our 3 year old niece had a hard time saying Worth... it sounded like Woof. 
Maybe he has a new nickname?!

We also drove to Beaver Creek to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary! Worth was the perfect little travel companion. He's such a good baby and really only fusses when he's getting hungry or wants to change positions (like from car seat to being held). A sweet couple at lunch one day guessed that he was 4 months old because he was so alert! We already knew that. ;)

Thankfully, our little munchkin loves riding in the car and it puts him right to sleep. Otherwise, I don't think we'd willing to do all these long drives! He likes riding in the stroller, too. He's especially happy when he has his wubbanub.

My little brother, Austin, came to visit his nephew! We went to a concert in the park - so fun! Even Cricket got to come.

Worth is already a football fan like his Daddy... he is just mesmerized by the TV if it's in his eyesight. We think he's going to be more of a Husker fan like Dad than a Horned Frog like Mom. He had a blow out diaper in his TCU outfit within a couple hours of wearing it, and lasted in his Husker outfit all day! Haha!

Thought a picture on the changing table at Target was better than no picture at all!


I've loved staying home with Worth and am trying to make the most of my maternity leave. I've been meeting up with other new moms in the neighborhood weekly and its great to go on walks, grab coffee and chat with the other mommies. It's going to be so hard for me to go back to work in October and leave our little guy during the day, but hopefully it will get easier as it become the new norm.

Worth has been eating every 3ish hours during the day, will cluster feed every 1.5 hrs in the evening and lately has been sleeping one long stretch at night usually 6-7 hours! He's been taking at least one nap per day in his crib, but when I want to snuggle, we'll nap together in bed and it's the best! He still prefers to be swaddled to sleep. At night, he's still sleeping in a bassinet by our bed.

Blurry middle of the night flash!

This week, he started drooling and chewing on his fist or anything else he can get his hands on. W seems to like baths. He just lays back in there and is mellow. Rub his head though and he is just in heaven... like he's at the spa and is getting totally pampered! He usually sleeps really well after a bath.

W is NOT a fan of having his nose suctioned (but, who is?!) or taking his Vitamin D supplement. But otherwise, he's a pretty easy going baby. Nick and I joke that Worth's little brother or sister is going to be a handful because we're not sure we'll get this lucky twice! ;)

Worth and Cricket are both zonked out

I just love when he's satisfied after eating and his little hand is so relaxed and just rests on my chest. So sweet! And then I'll put him up on my shoulder to burp him and he is just so content and rests his head on my shoulder with an open mouth and has the sweetest little breath. Yes, I am OBSESSED with my baby! Every little thing he does is magic. :)

Cute smiles at 9 weeks old
