2 Months

Ryan was two-months-old on Friday, the 19th. The only picture I took of him that day was this though, in his car seat. He pretty much slept from about 2 pm until the next day other than waking up to eat. I think the combination of shots and Tylenol pretty much knocked him out.

@ 2 months old:

He's sleeping in his bed but in his bouncy seat. I might attempt him sleeping on his back soon, but so far any attempts at him doing so results in him waking up. My kids are just incline sleepers, it seems.


He's on just formula now. I stopped pumping the day after he was 5 weeks old. He doesn't seem to mind. He eats between 3 - 4 ounces at a feeding, usually every 3 - 4 hours except for a 5 hours stretch at night. When he's hungry he just whimpers and puts his hands to his mouth. Unless you don't feed him fast enough, then he gets mad. He gained almost 2 pounds and 1 inch in the last month. He's now 9 lbs 6.8oz and 22 inches long. Still 25% for both. He's still the noisiest eater ever. I have to warn people beforehand how loud he is and that while it might sound as if he's choking, he's not. He's just that noisy.

The acne is about gone, but he has some eczema on his forehead. Hopefully that clears up easily with lotion, hydrocortisone when we need it. He also still has strangely greasy hair.

He smiles. I love it. First smile was at 7 1/2 weeks old on 11/10/10.


He's cute. Really cute.


And still awfully serious sometimes.

He like his play mat. He's so interested in the lights and music above him. He really likes the mobile over the changing table, too.


He sleeping great. He usually falls asleep between 8 - 9, wakes up and eats around 11pm then sleeps until 4 or so, eats again and sleeps until 7 or 8am. I cannot complain one bit.

He's an easy baby. Content as can be. Rarely fusses. Just easy. For now at least.

He's out of newborn clothes and newborn diapers. With these (almost) two pounds he's gained, he's fitting in most 0-3 month clothes nicely. The fleece sleepers are still way too big, though. He's starting to get chubby cheeks we noticed last week.

He uses a binky, but is hit or miss with it. He's definitely not as into it as Mackenzie was. Sometimes he really wants it, but often he has absolutely no interest.
He's still awesome.
