2 Months!!

*This blog post was started a month ago. It got delayed because of our move. Better late than never.

Parker is 2 months old! So much has changed in a month. This is a very fun and cute stage. He started to wake up around 5 weeks. He still sleeps a lot, but he has a lot more wake periods. Around 4.5 weeks he started to have fussy periods especially at night. He had a few really bad days and nights. I was wondering where my easy-going baby had gone. We were pretty desperate to find out what was going on. We felt bad for him. The crying and screaming was terrible to listen to. After talking to some people and reading, the fussiness seems to be very normal. I just didn't know what was going on because we didn't have that experience with Chase. We bought a sound machine which he seems to really like and helped a little. We also took him to the Dr. to rule out Acid Reflux (or a very severe case of Acid Reflux). The Dr. said he does have it, but that is fairly common as well.

This little guy loves to eat! He is a great eater. He is very efficient. I am grateful that nursing is going well and P is growing like a weed.

He has started to smile which is very fun. It is nice to have a little interaction. We started to use the bouncy seat. He likes to look at the little animals hanging down. He seems to like music as well.

He loves to be held. He will sleep and sleep if he is being held. Very snuggly!

He takes a bottle like a champ which is so helpful for when I need to leave him home to run some errands.

He had his shots this month. He took them pretty well. He just cried a little bit. He got a great report from the Dr. The boys were seen at the same time. Chase had Poison Oak and Parker had his Well-Baby appointment. It is so great to have a Dr. that is willing to see the boys together.

Here are his 2 month stats:
*He wears size 1-2 diapers
*He wears mostly 3-6 months clothes.
*He weighs 13 lbs. 12 oz (90th percentile)
*He measured 24.75 inches (90th percentile)
*He eats every 2-3 hours.
*He sleeps about 4-5 hours in a row during the night and then wakes up to eat
