Two Months Old

 
Ethan is one big boy.  At his two month appointment, he weighed in at 14 pounds 10 ounces which put him in the 90th percentile.  He was 24.5 inches long and in the 96th percentile.  He certainly was not a fan of the shots but he handled them pretty well.  They did not affect his sleep as he still slept from 9pm until 3am and then he ate again around 6.  I think Ethan would like to sleep later in the morning but he usually gets woken up by Isaac around 6:30 or 7am.

Ethan is smiling and talking a lot more.  I think Isaac is going to be excited when Ethan can play with toys and respond to his voice.  He tries to talk to and play with him but Ethan cannot do much yet.

One Month Old

Ethan is already two months old and I am just getting around to posting his one month photos.  I had ordered cute, "monthly" blocks from Etsy for his pictures but it took over a month for them to be shipped.  It turns out that the mother of the person that made the blocks passed away unexpectedly so she was not keeping up with her work during the month of August.  So, his one month pictures do not have them but that is okay. 
 
I did not get many good pictures but it is difficult with a one month old.  At a month, Ethan was about 12 pounds.  He is growing so quickly!

The First Month

The first month was going so well until Isaac came down with hand, foot and mouth disease the other week.  Isaac was miserable and I was so concerned that Ethan was going to get it or even just get a fever.  Babies under the age of eight weeks will likely be hospitalized if they get a fever over about 100 degrees.  Other than that, we have been doing well. 

I have added a few photos that compare the boys at similar ages.  I think they look quite a bit alike, however, you will notice that Ethan certainly has a jumpstart in the weight category.  At a month old, Ethan is about twelve pounds and Isaac was about nine pounds.

Isaac is still interested in Ethan.  He will ask to hold and kiss him and he asks where he is in the morning when he gets up.  However, he does not like it when Ethan cries.  He asks him to stop crying or he says, "Ethan is sad."  We keep explaining that babies do not know how to talk so they cry to try and tell us what they need.  I think he is starting to get it.

My cousin and his triplet girls (15 months) were visiting Wisconsin from Texas and stopped by so we could meet them.

Meeting Big Brother Isaac

Isaac has only been a big brother for about one week but so far so good.  He is surprisingly interested in Ethan.  He has asked to hold him a few times and he usually asks where Baby Ethan is right away when we walk into his room in the morning.  I hope he continues to stay so happy about being a big brother.

 

Listening to the baby's heart beat now that he is outside of Mommy's tummy.  Isaac used to hear the heart beat at my appointments when he came along.
