wesley - 2 months

please ignore the fact that he will be 3 months old in just a few days...  hopefully i will be more on top of things next month :)

stats:  at his 2 month appointment he was 12 lbs 1 oz, and 23.5" in length.  he was still in the 50% for weight, and 75% for length and head size.  in his second month, wesley was still fitting in most 0-3 month size clothing, although a few things were starting to get a little short on him.  


eating/sleeping:  wesley stayed on pretty much the same schedule that he had put himself on during his first month, except that at about 6 weeks old he dropped his 4 am feeding, and started sleeping through the night.  i know... we are lucky.  he was getting up most mornings around 7am, eating, and then typically took a decent morning nap.  he would eat again around 10 and 2, sometimes napping, but he really was awake most of the day.  he would eat again right before dinner time, and then before bed we'd give him a bottle.  he was going to bed around 9:30.  so he was nursing 4 times a day, and then getting a bottle for his 5th feeding.  and sleeping pretty much from 9:30pm-7:00am.  our bedtime routine was pretty simple - swaddle, sleep sheep, pacifier, and then just let him fall asleep on his own in his crib.  right at the end of the second month we had to start swaddling him with his arms free, because he was just moving too much and was starting to turn on his side when sleeping.
milestones:  we really started to get into a routine the second month.  wesley continued to be a relaxed and happy baby, which allowed us to start getting out of the house more, and just to be able to do more things while at home.  he continued to do well with tummy time, although he was starting to get bored.  during his second month he discovered that he liked to "stand", and prefered to be held upright instead of just doing tummy time.  he also gave us his first real smile.

misc.:  at the end of the month our friends made the drive out to visit us and meet wesley!  we had such a good time catching up, and spending time with them.  two of our friends have a little girl who was 9 months old (wesley's future girlfriend??) so it was fun to play with her, we don't get to see them nearly enough. 

wesley's second month was a good one, it was exciting to see him start to do a few more things and really start to show off his personality.  he's such a fun little guy.

(sorry for the weird picture format, something is wrong with blogger and i can't figure out how to fix it...)
