Two months

Dear Drake,

You are two months old on your Grandpa Williams' birthday! Time has gone so fast, and I'm sure I'll say that every month. You have changed so much over the past month, and I can't wait to see how you continue to grow and change.

You have become so much more alert! You will look us right in the eyes and follow us side-to-side. The playmat and bouncer seat are still some of your favorite places to be. You are starting to focus on the objects on both and will even "hit" the bird and monkey to hear the music! If daddy would bounce you all day, you would probably stay there!
The one place you don't love to sit is your swing. We keep trying it out, and you sat in it for about 20 minutes one day!! YEAH!
Now, you are holding onto things - your blanket, rattle, clothes and even grabbing hair.
(Thanks to blogger, this picture is turned! :-))

You enjoy your tummy time, but I need to be a little more diligent about doing it every day with you! :-)

We love to see you smiling at us and our family and friends who talk to you! That big gummy smile is so precious!
We have started using the Moby wrap, and you love it! You and I have gone on lots of walks this month - sometimes in the stroller and sometimes in the Moby. I'm hoping we can do a lot more before I go back to work.
Unfortunately, this month you have experienced baby acne and cradle cap. The baby acne is gone, but the cradle cap is still around. :-( You had your first stuffy nose and aren't too fond of the bulb syringe or the saline drops.

Sleep is still pretty inconsistent. We have developed a bedtime routine though. On bath nights (every other day), I give you your bath (which you LOVE!), swaddle you and then daddy gives you your bottle. On the other nights, I change and swaddle you and daddy gives you your bottle. We have been doing this starting about 8:00pm although we've started to move that a little earlier. You usually wake up between 1:00am and 2:00am and go right back to sleep for another 3-4 hours. During the day, you eat about every 3 hours and are only up for 1-2 hours at a time. You really like to take naps on my chest, but I know that won't work when you start going to Miss Alicia's so I'm starting to put you in your crib for daytime naps.

You're wearing size 1 diapers and size 0-3 months clothes. We put you on our scale at home last night and it said you were 10.8 pounds. Your two month well baby check is on Wednesday.
Happy two month birthday, Drake!!
