Charlie at Two Months...

Charles Davis... you are two months old!

While your first month seemed to last forever, this month flew by.  Seriously.  I can't believe it's already time to write your second month post.  I'm not sure if things just got easier, I felt more comfortable with you, we all got more sleep or we started to get a routine but things just started to click this month.  I'm not saying every moment was easy but I think we're finally figuring this all out.  I hope I'm not going to regret making that comment...

We haven't had your doctors appointment yet but based on our scale you are about 11 1/2 pounds. I'm also assuming you've gotten longer as you barely fit in your 0-3 month clothes that have feet. You are definitely growing and we just switched you over to size 1 diapers.

Your tummy issues seem much better now with you on Similac Total Comfort formula.  We went through a few weeks where you were very constipated and were in a lot of pain but we started putting Karo syrup in your bottle in the morning and at night and I think that has finally helped. We also tried a few other remedies and let's just say that I think we're all happy that you are feeling better now and don't need any "interventions" for relief :)

You are finally able to spread out your bottles during the day and take 3-4 ounces every 2-3 hours. Your naps are still not predictable and you like to "cat nap" throughout the day which is a little challenging.  You usually take a longer nap in the afternoon only if you're in your swing or being held.  

This next picture was taken right around 5 weeks and I can now say that you've lost quite a bit of that hair in the back.  Henry had the same issue where he had a mullet with a little patch of hair in the back and looks like you are going to be the same!

Bath time is much more pleasant as you are starting to enjoy soaking in the tub.  We normally do baths for both you and Henry after dinner before we start our bed time routine.  I wish I could say you go down for bed easily but normally you wake back up after your bottle and we spend quite a bit of time bouncing/rocking/walking you to sleep.  

You are definitely the happiest in the morning and have started giving me the best smiles!  I love to dress you in your cute clothes and snap pictures of you.

Your smile seriously melts my heart... :)

I mentioned that you are a happy baby but this is mostly because you are in my arms ALL day long.  I can't say I mind this all that much but there are definitely times I would like to put you down so I could get a few things done. Thankfully we don't have much on our agenda and I can easily accommodate holding a sweet baby all day long. Unfortunately, you're going to be in for a shock when you go to daycare in a few weeks...

We have also started putting you on your mat and you love to look up at the lights and toys.

You're still not a huge fan of laying on your tummy but I can normally get a few good minutes of you working your neck muscles before you give up and cry.

You are doing really well with sleeping at night and usually give us a long stretch of 5-6 hours first and then a shorter one of 3 hours.  You did sleep for 8 1/2 hours one night but unfortunately that hasn't happened since. You typically go down anywhere between 8-10 and will wake up either once or twice in the night and then are up for the day between 6-7.  I'm not complaining too much as I know (at least hope!) that you'll be sleeping through the night soon.

I think my favorite milestone this month has been your sweet smiles and coos.  You love to talk to me in the mornings and give me the best grins :)

Love you Charlie Boy and looking forward to what's to come!
