Bennett: 2 Months

Bennett- You are already 2 months old!!

You weigh 13 lbs. (86th percentile), are 2 feet long (90th percentile), and have a head circumference of 16.5 inches (94th percentile).

You wear 3 month clothes and size 2 diapers.
Your firsts this month: smiling, cooing, staying in a hotel, and sitting in your bumbo.

We love that your personality is starting to emerge. You are very easy going and are starting to smile and "talk" more frequently when you are awake.

Night times are still spent in your car seat, which you love. The amount of times that you wake up vary, but typically only once to eat and a few time for us to put your pacifier back in.

While you are awake you enjoy your swing, being held, looking at us and around the room, your pacifier, baths, and holding your head up. Your little neck is getting stronger and stronger. You have been a noisy little guy since being born! You snort, grunt, hum, and coo, but amazingly, your cries are fairly quiet and don't happen unless you are hungry or gassy. Your upset stomach is almost like clockwork, between 7pm and 9pm. Luckily, it is already starting to subside. We are looking forward to your spitting up disappearing. I think most of our family and friends have been a recipient of your little milky "gifts" on their clothing.

Eating may be your favorite thing to do! You drink about 6 ounces at a time, every 3-4 hours. All those bottles are filling you out, making those cute little legs, arms and cheeks nice and chubby!

Having you as the baby of our family is so fun!! My only wish is that time would slow down a little so that we could enjoy each second a little longer.
