- Laughs and smiles
Definately. This little boy is a happy kid. He smiles when you look and call to him. And if you use a cuter voice, he may even laugh out (pretty) loud.
- Holds head steady
More or less. I haven’t been spending enough time with the boy to give a definite answer. Every time I carry him, he wants milk and will be crying. So I can’t really tell. Sigh, FTWM guilt.
- Recognizes your face and scents
Another FTWM guilt. I have no idea. Even if he does, it would have been his main care taker, i.e my MIL and helper.
- Squeals, gurgles, coos
He does that even at 2 months. Like I mention, he is a happy boy. Sometimes he gurgles to attract your attention too.
- Recognizes your voice
Probably. When I reach home after work, the first thing I do is look at him and call him. There were cases where he looks like he is trying to make out something, then he breaks into his mega watt smiles.
- Does mini push up
I think I did saw it once or twice.
- Turn towards loud sound
Nope. I’m a little worried about his hearing. When you hold a rattle and shake it beside him,
sometimesmost times he doesn’t really respond. Even if he does, it was after a while, and you are not sure if he heard it or he happen to turn to that direction.
- Can bring hands together and may bat at toys.
Hands together, yes. But not bat at toys.
- Can roll over
Half way. He can flip his body to a side but is unable to flip his butt. LOL.
Mummy has been back to work for about a month already. Mummy misses you lot. She is so busy everyday after work that she hardly has time to play and interact with you. Nonetheless, thanks for being the good boy who is willing to just lie down and watch your GorGor and JieJie play. Mummy hope that she can spend more time with you once you start solids and she can reduce her number of pumps.
As of now, you drink about 5 bottles of milk (140ml each) in the day and latch once before you sleep. You wake up only once in the night for your feed. Mummy is really thankful that you are reduced to only one feed per night so early. There was twice you actually slept thru. Looks like we can start sleep training you soon.
Habit wise, you like to pull and lift up your own shirt. Flashing your tummy. And is constantly drooling, making your shirt wet. So we have to put on bibs when you are out, covering the cute rompers Mummy got for ya. Hmm, maybe Mummy should get you more cute bibs instead.
Please maintain your happy self and did I mention your mega watt smiles are really infectious? Everyday when Mummy reached home, tired from work, she sees your happy smile she will feel better and motivated. She is glad that she decide to have you though things are not easy for her now. So continue to be Mummy’s happy medicine ok?
We love you.
