I love the little nuggets of personality you can see in newborns. Their facial expressions, what grabs their attention, what works to calm them, it’s all so fascinating to me.
Little Bean is just about 2 months and here’s what I know about him.
He likes to smile.
Now that he’s a little more aware he smiles just at the sound of your voice. Every day he smiles just a little more than the day before. It melts my heart.
He’s a sleeper.
I hope this continues but like his brother and father before him, he seems to like to sleep. Sure, there are times he fights it but that doesn’t last long. According to the Baby Schedule Guide he should be getting 15.5 hours of sleep a day. That would mean he should be up 8 and a half hours. He’s not awake nearly that long! By my estimations Little Bean is sleeping about 18-19 hours a day. Of course no stretch goes longer then about 3 hours but most times, even during the day, he wakes to eat and within 20 minutes he’s out cold again.
Now I just need to work on a good 5 hour stretch at night! That would be nice.
And Finally, he loves, I mean ABSOLUTELY ADORES, the bath.
Little Bean has never, not once, cried in the bath. Not even a PEEP. From day one as soon as his little toes hit the warm water he has this expression of absolute pure contentment.
Even with Dad’s poking…
He just takes it all in stride.
Just look at that face!
This is definitely NOT one of his more ANNOYING traits.
What did you baby like at this age? Was he a bath kid too?
