Cole- 9 weeks (August 20, 2013)

Weight- At his 2 month check up yesterday the little man was 10 lb, 5 oz( 8th percentile) 22.75 in long (34th percentile) and head circumference was 15.5 inches (60th percentile). We have a growing boy!!
Health- Reflux comes and goes, but it doesn't seem to make him too uncomfortable. Otherwise healthy as a horse. Had his 2 month check up, no problems. Did have to get 3 shots and he did great. He was such a snuggle bug the entire afternoon.
battle wounds and cute chubby thighs
Sleep- Still sleeping 8-9 hours at night, I wake him up at 4:15 before I go to the gym. Naps change everyday. The past week or so he has only wanted to sleep if he is held. He usually cat naps through the morning, in my arms or in his swing. We have been able to get about an hour long nap in the afternoon the past few days. Naps continue to be a struggle. Today he slept pretty much all day, wore out from his shots yesterday.
Diet- Breastmilk. The day feedings are starting to stretch out a bit, usually every 2 1/2-3 hours. Have been trying to get him used to the bottle, this is a struggle. We haven't found a bottle that he doesn't cry with or act like he is drowning in milk. I have a few more to try this week. When he does take a bottle it is 3 1/2 ounces. Still has lots of spit up, we have burp cloths in every room.
Cloths- Still wearing newborn onsies, but he is fitting into some of his 0-3 cloths. Not Gap though, their cloths are so wide. Small Halo sacks and 0-3 sleep sacks from Gap for pj's. I did pack up his newborn sleep sacks and a few newborn outfits. Size 1 diapers
Development-  He is cooing a ton and really using his voice. He always coo's when we are in the car listening to Kenny Chesney- that a boy!! Recognizes Ross and I 's voice and his neck strength is awesome.  Eyes are still blue and hair is brown.
Crying-  This has gotten A TON better. It has turned to more fussing, rather than crying- AMEN.  Usually has a fussy time around 11 am and again around 4 pm, but is soothed by bouncing him and walking around. Even at night if he wakes up at 415 before I get to him, he just does a cute little whimper.
Likes/Dislikes- Likes bathtime every other night, walks in the stroller, and sleeping chest to chest (but he is a heat producer). Dislikes bottles, naps in his crib, wet diapers, and stopping at stoplights when we are in the car (starts crying). Also is a homebody. When he is out of his element he gets restless and crabby.
favorite position to lay in

Milestones-  Did great at Todd and Melissa's wedding bbq- everyone was able to hold him. We all survived first set of shots!

  1. I love reading Coles updates! He's getting so big...Lucas is 5 months and 13 lbs.(lol). Lucas also loves naps laying on our chest which I don't mind because I know he won't stay this small forever!
