You’re two months old today. Happy birthday, Vito!

It’s amazing how things have gone by so fast. Is Mommy getting old, or are you just growing up too fast for me? Sometimes I have to sit back and savor every minute we’re together. I don’t want to think that any moment with you might go to waste. After all, you’ll never be this small again!

Your second month:

5 to 6 weeks old:

  • You started saying more and more things, and talking even more!
  • We got you your first real toys – mitten shakers, which you love to play with in your crib.
  • You also started to notice your mobile, and to look with intent at Mommy and Daddy’s faces.

    7-8 weeks:

    • Your first Christmas! How excited everyone was to give you gifts. You got more gifts that Mommy and Daddy did all together!
      • You seemed to love being propped up and seated on Mommy or Daddy’s lap.
      • You also began to “talk” to all your visitors and those who’d come up to you. What a friendly, jolly baby you are!
      • You also doubled your birth weight at 8 weeks, gaining about 2.5 kilograms since birth. You also grew 4 centimeters more! Added to that, you also received your DpT shots, and didn’t cry at all when you got them.

      Have a swell day, baby. We love you so much.

      3 Months.

      Dear Vito,

      Happy 3rd month birthday, baby!

      I can’t believe you’re already at this point. I remember when you were three months inside me, many months ago. I remember going into the ultrasound room, excited to see you for the first time. When I first saw you, it was just the doctor and I in the room. My eyes filled with tears when I saw the little tadpole-like image on the black and white screen. That little thing was you! Daddy and I were so elated; it was hard to believe you were really there, already ours, already our little baby.

      So many things have happened in the past three months. Just a few of your milestones have been…

      Your first month (Nov 8 – Dec 8, 2010)

      1. 2 weeks old: Your umbi cord finally fell off and we were able to give you your first water bath on November 22! Lola Nelle was here to show me how to carefully bathe you. How much you love the water!
      2. 3 weeks old: Your first smiles. It was the first time you looked up at Mommy and Daddy with those toothless gums flashing a preliminary smile. How cute! Since then, I look forward to your smiles. They’ve made my days, baby.
      3. 4 weeks old:
      • You were baptized, December 6, 2010, at Mary the Queen Shrine. Your family members from all sides came to greet you “welcome” to the Catholic family. We had a brunch for you at Lolo and Lola’s house in New Jersey St, where Mommy used to live.
      • You gained more weight, and were 4 kilos. You grew some more, 4 centimeters in just under 4 weeks! You also bravely received your second Hepa-B shot, and though you cried a little, you stopped after some cuddles from Mommy. What a good boy!
      • You started cooing and gurgling, and your first identifiable “word” was “agoo,” spoken while you were on your favorite place, the changing pad! Since then, you’ve added more syllables to your baby vocabulary.

      Your second month:

      1. 5 to 6 weeks old: You started saying more and more things, and talking even more! We got you your first real toys – mitten shakers, which you love to play with in your crib. You also started to notice your mobile, and to look with intent at Mommy and Daddy’s faces.
      2. 7 weeks: Your first Christmas! How excited everyone was to give you gifts. You got more gifts that Mommy and Daddy did all together!
      3. 7-8 weeks:
      • You seemed to love being propped up and seated on Mommy or Daddy’s lap.
      • You also began to “talk” to all your visitors and those who’d come up to you. What a friendly, jolly baby you are!
      • You also doubled your birth weight at 8 weeks, gaining about 2.5 kilograms since birth. You also grew 4 centimeters more! Added to that, you also received your DpT shots, and didn’t cry at all when you got them.

      How old is Vito?
