L2 Month 3

Now to bring us up to speed.  Our sweet boy turned three months on Feb 26.  Time is flying by and I am loving every minute of having two boys!! Watching this guy grow and change has been so much fun.  

I remember saying this with L1 but I think this month has been the most fun yet!

L2 is smiling all the time and is so social and interactive! He has started to "talk" and laugh which is so cute I melt every time!!  He loves to watch his mobile and the fan and will even sit in his bumbo seat for a good amount of time.

Sleep: He is sleeping 6-8 hours most nights! last week was a little rough but I attribute that to me going back to work and throwing his little routine off a bit.  But really most nights he is only waking up once around 4 and he goes to sleep around 8 or 9.  He is so easy to put to bed, its very obvious when he is tired because he will get super fussy despite all other attempts to make him happy.  Then we swaddle him turn on his white noise and feed him.  I can lay him down awake and he will put himself to sleep.  This is a huge difference from big brother who would not sleep more than 3 hours at a time until 6months and had to be rocked/nursed to sleep.

Eating: I am so so happy to report we are back to "exclusive" breastfeeding!! I say "exclusive" because he does take bottles when I am at work and if we are out and about.  but in general he is basically back to nursing full time which I am so happy about! I am returning our hospital pump next week and said from when I work I usually only pump a few times throughout the day at home.  He is taking anywhere from 3.5-5 ounces when he does take a bottle and still wants to eat every 2-3 hours during the day.

Clothing: He is right between sizes 0-3 in some brands don't fit anymore and are almost too small in other brands, most 3-6 sizes are slightly big but will be perfect before long.

He loves to be carried still so I wear him often and when he has to be in his carseat he hates when it isn't moving.  He found his hands and chews on them all the time and is starting to notice his feet as well!

L2 Month 2

This is way late but nonetheless our sweet boy turned one month on January 26, 2014.

At his 2 month apt he was 12lbs 7 ounces and 23 inches, a huge improvement from where we were a month ago!!

Sleep: He is waking up every 3-4 hours at this point

Eating: Still not breastfeeding much, he takes 3-4 ounces at each feed every 2-3 hours. I decided to rent a hospital pump and so I have been able to give him just breast milk now days which is nice.  He spits up like a fountain but since he is gaining weight and not bothered by it we will just wait until he outgrows it.

Clothing: He is in 0-3 month clothes and size one diapers.

He is such a happy baby, smiling all the time! He loves his mamaroo and his simple bouncy seat and has started to watch his big brother which is the sweetest thing!!

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
