10 Weeks Old

Posted on

This week went for Kaelen’s two month checkup.  He has gained over 5lbs since birth and is getting longer and longer… not that we needed the doctor to tell us those things… Haha!  A few other milestones from this week:

Kaelen slept for five and half hours for the first time this week!  It was FABULOUS!!!  His longest sleep cycle overnight has continued to slowly lengthen over time, and although it is still inconsistent night to night I am a big fan of the trend.  Today his naps seemed a bit more organized instead of him falling asleep many times and only taking “cat-naps”.

Kaelen seems to recognize more people than just Mama & Daddy, like his Grandma & Grandad (Doug’s parents), Nana & Papa (my parents).  When he recognizes them he immediately gets a huge beaming smile which he directs towards them.  This is often accompanied by him cooing a greeting.  It makes my heart melt when he does it with me!

Little Man also has a super strong grip which he applies readily to anything that brushes his palms.  He often has Mama’s hairs in his hands and can grab fistfuls if my hair is down… getting him to let go is the trick!  This feat also makes getting him dressed or undressed a bit on the tricky side.

I took a few close up pictures of Kaelen this week in addition to the regular weekly picture.  His Daddy was making him laugh and I thought his faces were priceless.  Enjoy!
