Our little man turned two months old this week!
This past month Cannon has become very expressive and makes all kinds of faces. I love them all even the exaggerated, angry, chin quiver, it gets me every time.
One of Cannon’s favorite things to do is take baths. He will kick and splash forever and dosen’t seem like he ever wants to come out. He also loves to go for walks and snuggle in his Beco baby carrier.
Cannon is still eating like a champ and is gaining weight and growing right around the 50th percentile. The only issue we have is that he doesn’t love eating from a bottle. That will have to change when he goes to daycare at 12 weeks old. I am pumping so that I can leave him with family members for short amounts of time and I can build a freezer stash so he is strictly on breast milk for now.
Sleep has gone great this month, Cannon usually sleeps between 6 and 8 hours straight. I don’t get all the benefits of his great sleep as I wake up once to pump overnight but still it is nice. Given that he is sleeping so much at night he tends to not be a great napper during the day. We aren’t yet on any kind of schedule so somedays he sleeps long stretches in the morning and others he just wants to play and move around all day.
This month was much easier than the first month since I am feeling better. We are getting more confident taking Cannon out with us and he even went to his first restaurant after cheering Cory on at the Beaver Creek Trail Race.
Cannon also got to spectate his Gramdma and Gradpa’s triathlon at Boulder Reservior. He has done pretty well on our outings and we are learning what is needed for successful trips.
We have been practicing taking Cannon on longer car trips to help prepare him for our big road trip. In a couple weeks we will be packing up and heading out to Oregon to visit family. The shorter trips have really helped us learn some lessons on what to do and more importantly what not to do.
We are so enjoying watching Cannon learn and grow, he really lights up our lives.
