Two Months of Harrison | Baby Update

Ok so I realise that it is pretty much over halfway through September now and I haven't quite stuck to my posting 'schedule' as I would have liked.
Before we know it, it will be time for me to do Harrison's 3 month update!
But it's better to be late than never surely?!
Whoever thought I'd have the time to manage 3 kids, a house and all my social media in one go, HA!
Who are these women and PLEASE tell me all your secrets!
So let's just step back for a second and appreciate that 2 month mark because there was quite a bit going on.

I may have mentioned it in my last update, but it is still going on and that is the cluster feeding. It's only in the evening and I'm convinced my boobs are running on empty which is why he is just not satisfied. He is still having a bedtime formula feed of 6oz.
Harrison got a slight bit of baby acne, but it cleared up within a matter of days which was great because lets be honest, it doesn't look very nice and there is nothing you can really do about it.
The baby smiles have been rolling in from all angles and I am LOVING it! There is nothing better than seeing your baby smile for the first time, its just such a wonderful little gift.

During the second month we had our 6 week check, I say we, but I didn't really have much 'checked over.' I just got offered to go back on my good old contraception. Everything was fine with Harrison, he is gaining weight nicely which is very reassuring to hear, especially when your breastfeeding because you can never tell just how much baby is taking in. Well I sort of can because he is most defiantly filing out, our little chunk! I did do my little weigh trick thing and it came out that he is roughly 12lbs 4oz. That's 4lbs onto of his birth weight.
He has started making 'cooing' conversation. It is just the sweetest and if you do it back and give him time he will actually respond. It's like we are having a little conversation between ourselves and I love it!! Matt thought I was crazy when I told him we were having a conversation.
I'm sad to say it, but he is growing out of his 0-3 clothing. I'm just not ready for that, he's my baby baby and quite possibly my last. So I'm literally soaking up every second with him, because before I know it he will be off out the door leading his own life, waa.

Harrison has also had his first little holiday down the caravan.
(check my previous blog to see where we stayed)
The first couple of nights he was a little off, waking once or twice more than usual, but we were in a different environment and he could obviously sense that. Apart from that he was very well behaved and it was a nice little break for us all. Although I did forget the amount of stuff you have to take for a baby! Jeez! 
Incase you haven't seen it we did film a 2 month update vlog which I have included at the end of this blog.

take care xo
