Two Months

Our little peanut is two months old today!!! 
Weight: We go in for our two month check up in one week. I would guess Campbell is around 10+ pounds. I'm always so anxious to know how much he weighs!

Height: Again, I'll have to update this later. He seems pretty tall to me though....or either he has long legs because his pants are always short on him.

Sleep: Well....we slept for 5 1/2 hours 3 nights in a row. Before that we were going good at 4 1/2 hours for a little over a week or so. Then last night we had a major setback and slept in 2 hour increments all night long. I've been stressing over it all day! I'm praying it was just an off night because the 5 1/2 hour stretches of sleep have been amazing!!

Eat: We're still breastfeeding. Campbell eats about 7-8 times a day. Most of the time I nurse him but when I give him a bottle we do 3 ounces and he seems pretty satisfied with that. Sometimes I'll nurse him afterwards in case he's still a little hungry. Campbell loves his bottles! He typically gets 2-3 a day. I always give him a bedtime bottle (it's part of our bedtime routine) and Scott gives him a bottle first thing in the morning so I can sleep.

Clothes: We're in an awkward clothing stage right now. Newborn clothes are starting to get too small but 0-3 month clothes are way too big. We just make due the best way we can!

Diapers: Pampers are still our favorites and we're still in the newborn size.

Likes: Bath time, car rides, when Daddy swings me in my car seat, running errands with Mommy, gripe water, childrens tylenol (on the rare occasion we give it to him--he's obsessed), gas drops, ceiling fans, laying on my changing pad, being outside.

Dislikes: Getting out of my bath, when Mommy uses the Nose Frida (even though Mommy is oddly obsessed and enjoys doing it a little too much), taking prevacid for my reflux, and evenings (hello witching hours).
Month Two: Month two started out terrible. The first few weeks of month two were the hardest of my life. The last few weeks of month two have been so much easier. It's actually pretty amazing how much easier things are now. Campbell is a much happier and content baby these days and gives us the sweetest smiles. I seem to fall more in love with him every day and he's quickly becoming my best little buddy. Life is definitely different but at the end of the day, I realize I would much rather be snuggling my baby boy and rocking him to sleep than doing anything else. He's my favorite priority! We love our little peanut!!!
