CROSBY | 2 Months


The day before Crosby's 2-month birthday, I herded my littles into their pediatrician's office only to be informed that Crosby was listed as "ineligible" on our insurance. So, no fun stats this month. Just a quick check-in on this adorably, squishy, and smiley guy of ours. 

MATERNITY LEAVE
I went back to work on Monday. I am not at all excited about leaving my babies. Although Charlie has grown very attached to me the last couple months, I know he will be fine being in a new environment with a new sitter, especially since she has a daughter he can play with. Crosby, on the other hand, has developed this super fun habit of scream-crying when he's exhausted. Doesn't matter than he has a fresh diaper or that he's just been fed. The only thing we can do is just let him tire himself out with crying until he falls asleep. It generally doesn't last longer than 5-10 minutes, but it's still horrible and I hate that someone who doesn't know him is going to have figure out the intricacies of his sleep habits.

BREASTFEEDING
This kid loves to eat. Which explains all the adorably squishy rolls he's rocking! He eats so much that sometimes I worry that I'm not making enough milk. I have to push myself to eat more frequently than I normally would to ensure he's getting everything he needs.

BABY FAT
I'm down to right around where I was pre-pregnancy, give or take a pound or two. I try to get out for a walk every day with the boys, but I'm what you might call, "skinny fat." I am not in great shape and I am completely lacking any muscle tone. Chuck is also really trying to lose some weight, so we're getting better about pushing each other to get more physical activity in and want to try doing some 5k prep and yoga together. Fingers crossed we can continue to hold each other accountable!

As for Crosby...



LIFE
I'm still a full-blown Mombie (Mom + zombie). At this point with Charlie, he was sleeping 8 hour stretches. But not this guy! He would much rather eat than sleep, so we're still up about every 3 hours throughout the night. Just like his big brother, he loves to go on walks. But that's pretty much where the similarities end. He eats more and sleeps less. But he also smiles and cries more. I know that sounds like a contradiction, but it's not. Charlie was just a very chill, serious baby. Whereas Crosby is more expressive. I would not be at all opposed if he decided to sleep longer stretches through the night, but it is really fun to slowly watch as the differences in their temperaments is made apparent.

MILESTONES
Obviously, he's still in the somewhat boring newborn stage, but he started smiling like crazy this month and has also started "talking."

STATS
The day of his 2-month appointment fail I weighed him at home using our bathroom scale. Coming in around 12 lbs 4 oz, he is just about three pounds heavier than Charlie was at this age. Crazy! Bring on the chubbiness, Crosby Loren. I love kissing your precious, squishy cheeks!
