2 months

Happy 2 month birthday, Bowie (as his brothers have nicknamed him)!  Hard to believe how quickly time is passing!













Stats:  We had his 2 month appt on Monday.  This tank already weighs 14 lbs (100th percentile).  


He was also in the 75th percentile for both height and head circumference.  He was so not impressed with the whole shot thing...

Schedule:  I'm a big fan of his current schedule-  eating every 3 hours during the day and then going on much longer stretches at night... He is still a champ sleeper at night and is starting to have some longer awake periods during the day.  He gets a bath around 6:30, eats/swaddles and is down for the night between 7-7:30.  He has been sleeping most of the night-  wakes only to eat, usually around 2-3am, then goes back to bed until 7ish.  Last night he slept for 14 hours and only woke briefly once!  What?! Can we say lucky mama?! 

Temperament: Beau still seems very laid back, happy and content.   He now enjoys bath time, and has started to smile and track with his eyes when he hears a familiar voice.  He even enjoys some (sometimes too aggressive) loving from his big bros.  When he does cry, he is easily soothed with his paci... Or milk. 

His brothers are still smitten with him-  Trey songs "you've got a friend in me," and writes him letters at preschool and Charlie "tickles" him and makes him smile.  They both race to find his paci whenever he starts to cry.



Other updates:  

Trey enjoyed a daddy date at the Titans game on opening weekend!  They even had field passes! 


He loves the idea of soccer but is still quite the daisy-picker during the actual games.  Oh well, he's having fun!




Charlie is just Charlie... My wild, strong-willed, adventurous, limit-testing, non-napping child... Gotta love the toddler phase...



Don't expect many updates in the upcoming weeks-  we have some big, exciting news that we will be sharing publicly very soon!  Until then, my life will be CRAZY!
