Ronan is two months old!

I meant to post this photo of Ronan at 1 month old:

But time has flown by and Ronan is already 2 months old!

Isn't he growing like crazy!?!

Ronan - two month old

He's much more bright-eyed now and really looks at the things around him.  He is big and tall: 81 percentile for weight and 90 percentile for height.  He's already too long for some of his 0-3 month sleepers with the feet!  His dad is 6'1" and I'm 5'6" so we are a little on the tall side so maybe he'll be tall.

He is definitely a good sleeper and eater which I'm so thankful for!  Breastfeeding has gotten much better!  Ronan weaning off the nipple shield after using it for about 3 weeks.  For some reason, I thought he might always have to use it, but looking back 3 weeks was nothing!  It took about 4 weeks for the plugged duct/lump to go away completely, but I feel good now!  Except I think I have mother's wrist from hold Ronan a lot and in the "wrong" way.  It really hurts, but I think I just need to be careful and it will go away.

Overall I feel pretty much back to normal.  I still am about 4lbs more than I was before having Ronan, but I'm not complaining especially since I really don't feel like I have worked out in forever and I don't really watch what I eat.  But it's probably time to start.

6 weeks postpartum - apparently too busy to find clothes that match :)
Last weekend was the first time we were both out without Ronan.  I missed him so much and it was only a few hours.  I had my first drink in almost a year and it was fun to go out, but honestly I couldn't wait to get back to my baby!  I've got a couple more weeks before I have to go back to work, that is going to be so hard!

You look fantastic! I'm a relatively new reader and first time Mom to a 3 week old baby boy. We are also currently using a nipple shield - any tips for weaning him off the shield? I'm eager to be done with it and any recommendations would be great. Also, what program/app did you use to create Ronan's 1 and 2 month update pictures?

hi Anonymous - if you leave me your email I'd be happy to email you back :)

All I did to get my baby to nurse without one was just being persistent about not using one and eventually he got the hang of it. But I also knew he was getting plenty of food, which helped.
Good luck!

And I used to add the text to the photo - it's free and I love it!

You look so good! I love that you have found time to get out. Our families don't live close, so this weekend will be our first time out without him as a couple. Ronan is so cute!!
Retry much 8 weeks on has been amazing for me. It's that magic time when sleep is much better, they're starting go interact more, etc. wait til the smiles and giggles start! I can't get enough!
