Two Months Old!

Little Henry turned two months yesterday.  I waited until today to put a post together so I could get all of his stats.  Feels like it has been forever since we have been to the doctor, but that is a good thing!

Henry continues to be a great baby.  He coos and squeals now which makes awake time all that more enjoyable.  He loves it when you sing to him and will join in on his favorite songs.  We get a kick out of this and since Chris loves to sing anyways, our house is always filled with random songs.  We have started practicing our rolling over techniques and he does pretty well.  Hopefully by our three month post he will have this skill mastered.  What he has mastered is a sad face.  He can turn it on to get what he wants.  Your heart just melts and you realize how much he can manipulate us already!

Sleep was a hot topic in our household and has become a much better subject to discuss.  Henry takes an hour and a half nap at 9:30, 12:30 and again at 3:30.  He typically takes a cat nap from 6:30-7 and then from 7-8 he has decided to be fussy.  We entertain him during this time with baths, songs, his bouncy seat, swing, or just walking around the house.  Eight is still his bedtime, he has a dream feed at 10:30,  and over the past week (knock on wood) he has only been getting up once before we get him up at 8:00.  Last night was our first night that he slept the whole way through, hopefully this will continue.  Once he figured out sleep wasn't so bad, he seems to enjoy it.

This past month has been filled with his baby dedication, me returning to work, going to the sitter for the first time (Skyler is great), grandparent visits (helps that they live only 15 minutes away), and more and more outings.  We are starting to get the swing of things and enjoy showing the little guy off.

He still fits into his size 0-3 month clothing, but a few items are getting snug.  Most of them fit fine except for the length.  When he goes to stretch out in his footy pajamas, he can look a little silly.  We are finishing up a box of size one diapers and then will probably go ahead and move him into size two.  

Today was his two month check up and the boy is growing!  He weighs in at a big old 13.31 pounds!  He is in the ninetieth percentile for weight, seventy-fifth percentile for height, and his head circumference is in the fiftieth percentile.  The doctor said he looked great and is very healthy.  Poor kid had to get three shots, praying he handles them well.  We've got the Tylenol ready and lots of cuddles planned for the day.

Here are his weekly pictures since his one month post.  Going to have to put him on a chair eventually so he will look at the camera!  Little turkey.
