What’s It Like To Be Two Months Old?

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 01-11-2007

My head is a little wobbly when I am propped up. Put your hand behind my neck and head for support.

  • I can hold my head up for a few seconds when I’m on my stomach.
  • I hold onto things for a little while.
  • I move my arms and legs. I “bicycle” with my feet when I get excited.
  • I gurgle, laugh and smile when I am happy.
  • I cry when I am hungry, scared or uncomfortable.
  • I am aware of different voices and people.
  • I stay awake during the day. But I usually take naps throughout the day.
  • I make cooing sounds.
  • I begin to stare at my hands.
  • I follow you with my eyes to watch you move around.
  • I stare at people and at things.
  • I smile at other people, not just at my mother.
  • I quiet down when I suck my fingers, a bottle or a pacifier.
