Spear is 2 Months Old

Spear turned two months old on February 1st! Using What to Expect the First Year I’m going over where he’s at with his milestones and development (I also got his milestone stickers from here!):

At two months old Spear is doing everything a baby his age should be doing including:

  • smiling in response to my smile
  • respond to a bell in some way such as startling, crying, quieting (Spear startles)

He is also doing everything a baby his age will probably be able to do including:

  • vocalize in ways other than crying (cooing). 
  • lift head at 45 degrees when on tummy

He does many of the things that a two month old may even be able to do including:

  • hold head steady while upright
  • on stomach, raise chest supported by arms
  • say “ah-goo” (and he literally says AH-GOO)

In the may even be able to category he is not yet:

  • roll over (one way)
  • grasp a rattle held to backs or tips of fingers
  • pay attention to an object as small as a raisin 
  • reach for an object

Spear is doing one thing that a baby his age may possibly be able to do including:

  • smile spontaneously

He is not yet:

  • bringing both hands together
  • on stomach, lifting head 90 degrees
  • laughing out loud
  • squealing in delight
  • following an object held 6 inches above head and moving it 180 degrees.

Here are the older kid’s 2 month posts to compare:
