2 Months Old

This month you have grown so quickly and have already outgrown several of our favorite newborn outfits.  We don't hesitate to take you out to dinner or to parties and so far you've done great usually sleeping through the commotion and waking up for a snack once or twice.  We are hoping that getting you used to being out and about early will make it easier later on.   We also love to show you off to anyone and everyone that is wants to meet you.  Your personality is really starting to come through and you've been learning to make new sounds and love to "chat" with Dad by making noises back and forth with him. 
  • Size: You weigh 11 lb 14 oz and are 23.5" tall.
  • Eating: You have a ravenous appetite which has really spurred on your fast growth.  You still eat around 12 times per day and have learned how to drink from a bottle also.  Every few weeks you seem to hit a growth spurt where you want to eat nonstop for a day or 2.  We are convinced that you love the smell of food because you usually get very hungry when Mom and Dad sit down to eat.
  • Diapers: We are still going through tons of diapers as everyone warned us we would.  We have creams, ointments, fans, and protocols in place in order to prevent that darn diaper rash.  We also do "sun's out buns out time" while we are playing in an attempt to keep the diaper area dry.  Looks like you may have inherited Mama's sensitive skin.  
  • Sleep: You prefer to sleep on the go (surprisingly the more noise and commotion the better), but have been taking at least one nap in your bassinet each day. We try to put you down for bed before 8pm and you usually wake up 1 or 2 times throughout the night for a feed and diaper change.  We celebrate with cheers and lots of praise each morning after a 1 wake night.  
  • Play: You love to play with mom and dad and smile back at us when we talk to you or tickle you.  You've also discovered how much fun it is to play with your hands and seem very entertained by them.  You have become a lot more interested in story time and we generally can make it through a full book before bed.  
  • Bath:  As long as the water is warm enough and your belly is full, you love bath time which has become a part of our routine every other night.  Dad is in charge of washing all your nooks and crannies and lucky Mom gets to give you an post bath massage, one of my favorite times of the day.
We love to watch you grow.  So much change in one month!

We also had another fantastic photoshoot with Hunnicutt Photography.  It was so hard to choose a reasonable number to add to the blog, but here are just a few of our favorites.
