It's been an amazing two months and our little nugget is growing perfectly!! He weighed 9 lbs 6 ozs and was 22.44 inches long at his two month checkup! He gained 2 ounces shy of 2 lbs in a month which is amazing and surpassed my goal of 20 ounces! I am so very proud of us for being successful at breastfeeding! Some days are better than others, but all in all, we are doing wonderfully! We've even fed in public a couple of times without any issues! He definitely doesn't like the cover, but I require the cover. Hopefully it will just continue to get easier and easier for us!
Things to Remember:
He's waking up once between the hours of 10pm and 5am and then he's generally up around 7 for the day, takes a nap from 9:30-11 and then again around 2. We aren't on a strict schedule, but he has kind of created a schedule for himself and is fairly consistent with it regardless of whether or not we are home or out and about.
He has found his hand and loves to suck on it. He hasn't found his thumb yet, but we predict it won't be long before he is a thumb sucker.
Maxwell smiles and coos a ton! He loves it when we talk to him, mimic him, and sing to him. Ryan sings inappropriate songs as if they were lullabies and I sing "Jesus Loves You" and some Irish lullabies.
He loves to kick his piano on floor mat and he is starting to grab for things.
Bathtime is super calming for him and he looks so insanely cute snuggled against his daddy's chest in his giraffe towel! Oh be still my beating heart!
Nighttime feedings and smiles are some of my favorite times with him. He is so calm and happy during the wee hours of the morning when the house is quiet and the white Christmas lights are lit in his room. It's our special time together.
He is very alert! He even found himself in the mirror and laughed a couple of times! That was priceless.
I haven't taken his two month pictures because he has been quite upset unless he is being held. He didn't enjoy getting 3 shots and I think he is going through a growth spurt because he is easily irritated and extra gassy. We did have our two month Mommy & Me pictures taken though and his personality definitely showed! He's a skeptical little guy and doesn't hide his emotions very well...definitely got that one from me!

|Telling me how much he loves me!|
|Absolutely LOVE this picture! He loves looking around!|
