Two months

I have to admit, I was really gung ho about my blog when I first started it, but the past few weeks have been really busy for us, so I've fallen way behind!
 So here's my attempt at catching up and trying to stay up to date!

Matthew Jr. you are TWO months old!
(actually right now you are 2.5 months old, but I'm just posting this late! woops!)

I'm amazed at how you seem to be changing everyday!

What are you up to these days?

You weigh 12 pounds 9.5 ounces (75th percentile)

You are 24 inches long (80th percentile) You grew 2 inches this month!

Your head is 16 1/4 inches (80th percentile)

You are still wearing size one diapers...not for too much longer though!

You are wearing all 3 month or 3-6 month shirts and jumpers. You can still wear your 0-3 month pants. I can't believe how fast you are growing. It was so hard for me to put away your newborn clothes!

You obviously are a great eater! During the day, you nurse about every 3 hours. You mean business when you are done nursing in about 15 minutes!

We are very happy with sleep these days. I nurse you before we go to bed, and then you sleep 4-6 hours, nurse and go right back down for a few more hours. Usually you eat around 10 pm, wake up between 2 & 4:30, and then sleep until 6:30-7:30, and then we are up for the day!

You are still sleeping in our room. Our master bedroom and downstairs, and Matthew's nursery is upstairs, so we haven't made the move yet. You sleep in your pack-and-play next to our bed, and so far it's the easiest set up for us.

We got a white noise machine for your pack-and-play and think that it works great!

We are doing a sleep/schedule method called Babywise. We are loving it! You stay on a pretty good schedule throughout the day of nursing, being awake for 1-2 hours, sleep for 1-2 hours, and then repeat! Sometimes you will nap for longer periods, and sometimes you don't want to sleep for more then 45 minutes. I think that I have you figured out, and the next day you decide to do something different!

You still hate your car seat and the cry almost EVERY TIME we put you in it.

You are getting so strong! You love to stand and push with your legs all the time! When you are on your tummy you hold your head up and push up onto your arms!

I can't believe it, but my baby is rolling over! You can roll from your tummy to your back! You started doing this at 7 weeks old. We can't keep you on your tummy anymore, because you just roll over to your back!

You love to lay on your back, kick your legs and stretch your arms

You still have blue/grey eyes...I hope that they don't change. They are so beautiful! You are SO expressive with your face, eyes and eyebrows! We love staring at you!

You still love to be swaddled tight when you sleep...if you aren't swaddled you wake yourself right up.

You LOVE your baths and showers! I'm hoping that you are going to be a water baby! Actually more then anything, I think you just love having you clothes off and being naked!

You are a paci baby...I love how it calms you down, but sometimes you spit it out when you are trying to go to sleep, and will scream until you get it relationship!!

Your chin still's so cute! It always quivers when you are cold, but it will quiver when you are happy or just staring at someone too!

You grunt alot and like to make noises...your daddy did this when he was a baby too! Like father, like son...

We went to Children's hospital this month because you were tongue tied. The doctor snipped the tissue under your tongue, and fixed the problem! It was the easiest procedure. Of course you cried when he did it, but afterwards you were happy and we couldn't tell you had anything done...except now you can stick out and play with your tongue!

You got a few shots this month. Poor little guy was a bit fussy and had a low grade temp the rest of the evening...just an excuse for lots of cuddles!

You have found the TV! You love to just stare at all the lights and colors... daddy especially likes it when sports are on!

Mommy and Daddy got their first date night when you were 5 weeks old. Grandpa and Grammy were your first "babysitters" and watched you while we went out to dinner at Claim Jumpers, went shopping, and ran some errands. Thankfully you take the bottle great! Thanks mom and dad for watching Matthew! It was so nice to have some time away with just my husband!

You first smiled at 6 weeks old!!! I love it!!! You love to coo when you are happy too!

Matthew Jr. you are SO loved and such a blessing from the Lord!
