Tess is 2 Months Old!

Tess turned 2 months old on September 31st. Or at least she WOULD be 2 months old on Sept 31st IF September had 31 days. Of course she had to decide to come into the world on a date that not every month has haha! So I guess it makes the most sense to take her monthly pics on the 1st of the next month following a month without 31 days 🙂

According to What to Expect the First Year here is a list of the milestones Tess has reached in comparison to other babies her same age!

At two months old Tess can do all the things that a baby her age should be able to do including:

  • smile in response to your smile
  • respond to a bell in some way, such as startling, crying, quieting 

Tess can also do all the things a two months old probably will be able to do including:

  • vocalize in ways other than crying (cooing)
  • on stomach, lift head 45 degrees

She can also do most of the things a baby her age may be able to do including:

  • hold head steady when upright
  • on stomach, raise chest, supported by arms
  • roll over one way
  • grasp a rattle held to the backs or tips of fingers
  • say “ah-goo” or similar vowel-consonant combinations

Tess cannot yet reach for an object nor can she pay attention to an object as small as a raisin. 

Tess can do all the things a baby her age may possibly be able to do including:

  • smile spontaneously
  • bring both hands together
  • on stomach, lift head 90 degrees
  • laugh out loud (my fav!)
  • squeal in delight
  • follow an object held about 6 inches above the baby’s face and moved 180 degrees (from one side to the other) with baby watching the whole way
