Baby Update - Two Months Old

We're two months old today! Boy have we grown! Peyton is up to 10 lbs now according to my super accurate weighing system (me weighing myself holding him and not holding him, ha!). Daddy is taking him to his two month checkup today and I unfortunately am returning to work, boo. I am so thankful for my job, but I totally wish that I was able to be a stay at home mom (SAHM) / work at home mom (WAHM). I think I like the WAHM title better, because we all know staying home with a child is a full time job! Maybe in future I will be able to, but for now it's back to work I go.

Back to Peyton's development! Of course we are not up to speed with a typical two month old since he was 6 weeks premature, but that was to be expected. I use The Wonder Weeks app to track his development and cognitive leaps, which by the way is awesome, you should download it if you haven't already! Right now Peyton should be going through his second leap which is the Patterns Leap (starts between 7.5 weeks and 9.5 weeks) but since we go by his adjusted age for development he's technically only 3 weeks old which means he hasn't even reached the first leap, Changing Sensations (starts between 4.5 weeks and 5.5 weeks). The adjusted age is just a guideline for us and we know he will be behind and some areas or he could be right on track or even ahead. Interestingly enough he has, in my eyes, concurred the first leap and done things from the second leap, but not all of them yet. From the first leap: he is now looking at something longer and more frequently, responding to touch differently, giving a social smile and is more awake and "busy". From the second leap: he is able to hold his head up better, he is beginning to turn his head towards sounds, and makes short, explosive sounds. We are still waiting for him to start flapping his hands against toys, discover parts of his body and observe patterns.

It's really interesting what he has done and hasn't. I didn't expect for him to be so advanced so early, but I am proud that he isn't too far behind other babies his age! Heck, I was stunned when he rolled over three times in one day when he was only three weeks old! He's still doing it, too, no flukes here! He's also sleeping 4.5 to 5.5 hours through the night. A handful of times he even slept 6 hours! I think that's pretty darn amazing for a 6 week preemie, don't you?!

I'm having so much fun capturing his growth through pictures! I am amazed how much his face has filled out compared to when he was only one month old. I just love this little boy!

    I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com
