Luke: 2 months old

I cannot believe this little man is two months old. My how time flies. I went to back to work on November 15 so our lives have been a little more hectic lately (if that was possible).

2 months stats: 12 pounds, 6 oz. (70th percentile), 23-1/4 inches long (50th percentile). He is by far our biggest child at this age.

Luke started sleeping through the night (from 10pm to 5-6am ... that counts in my book) the week before I went back to work. Great timing Luke! He still wakes up during the night (around 3-4am), but instead of feeding him, we put him in the swing and he goes right back to sleep until morning. Hooray! [Can you tell ... I'm very excited about all the sleep. I've even started going back to my 6am spin class before work.]

He is comfortably wearing 0-3 month clothing and size 1 diapers. He is eating 4-5 ounces of formula every 3-4 hours. He is still very gassy when he eats, but it is improving. I can handle all the screaming in my ear while he eats (and tries to burp) if I am running on a full night's sleep!

Some other accomplishments during month 2:
-starting to smile some
-responds to loud noises
-starting to coo
-can hold head steady when upright
-he has rolled over from tummy to back once (we aren't real faithful with the tummy time routine)
-bats and kicks at toys on playmat
-follows an object with his eyes

We are loving this sweet baby boy more a more everyday!

Susan, he is such a doll!!! I could just eat him up! I'm glad you're enjoying him so much. How are Claire and David doing with him? They seem to really love him in the pictures.
