Wilson--2 Months

Wilson turns two months old today! He is such a great baby and so sweet. I can't wait to watch him grow and develop more and more. 

-Wilson weighs 14 pounds! He is already 6 pounds over his birth weight when normal babies his age are expected to be about 3. What a little chunk I have. 

-He is 24 inches long. 

- He usually eats 4 ounces at 7, 10, 1, and 5. From 5 to bed time, he likes to snack an ounce at a time. Because of his acid reflux, he has 5-7 teaspoons of rice cereal added to his formula. 

- His reflux is so much better now that he is on Zantac. He still spits up a lot and coughs/chokes some, but he doesn't cry or wake himself up anymore. 

- He usually take a 2 hour morning nap, a 3 hour afternoon nap, and then a couple of cat naps in the evening. Wilson refuses to sleep in his bouncy seat or swing during the day, so I hold him. I may be spoiling him, but we both get much needed rest this way. I'm not worried right now and I'm hoping he will grow out of it on his own. 

- Bed time is between 10-12, usually around 11. I stay up and rock him to sleep. He sleeps in his swing which is in our room right now. He uses a sound app on our phones. Usually, he only wakes up once between 3-5, eats and goes right back to sleep until 7-8. He has slept from 11-6 a couple of nights, which was wonderful. 

-He learned to smile this month. He loves to look at faces and tries to mimic your expression. He ha also started to coo and make noises while smiling. 

- He is wearing a mix of 3 month, 3/6 month, and 6 month size clothes. His 0/3 month things are just too short and tight on him. Such a big boy. 

- He is in size 1 diapers but really needs size 2. I'm trying to use up our stock of 1's but I can only clean so many blow outs. 

- Wilson hates tummy time and we only do it for about 10 minutes every other day. He is way more interested in kicking his legs and pushing up on them than holding his shoulders up. 

- He is great at holding his head up while sitting. He loves to sit in his high chair or propped in a chair with his boppy. 

- Likes: mr. Giraffe, grocery shopping in his baby wrap, talks with mom and dad, eating

- Dislikes : tummy time, being snuggled when not sleepy, loud noises like sneezes
