Monthly Updates: Month Two

Barrett,
I'm not sure how these two months have seemed to fly by in the blink of an eye but they have...and we don't like it. Your first month of life was a little rough with the acid reflux but as soon as we got your medicine figured out, we've seen a huge improvement.
You're starting to really be aware of your surroundings and your sister is still your favorite person to track and follow around the room. We are so excited to see your relationship build over the next few months and years!
We love you more than you'll ever know!

Here are some special highlights for your SECOND month:

Weight: 14 pounds 3 ounces (81%)
Height: 23.3 inches (44%)
Head Circumference : 39 centimeters (15%)
Clothing Size: You have officially grown out of all your newborn clothes! Most of your outfits are 3 months but you do have a few 0-3 month outfits that you are still able to wear. You wore your first pair of jeans this month and they were adorable on you.
Diapers: You are in Pampers Swaddlers size 2. You weren't in size 1 diapers very long before we realized that size 2 diapers would be a better fit. Diaper changes are getting easier now that we know what to expect and how fast we need to move so we don't get peed on.
Feeding: You are eating 3 ounces every 2 hours during the day and at night when you wake up. You LOVE to eat! You are getting better at being more patient, now that you have reflux medicine, but you still let us know when you're hungry. Mama's milk is sooo yummy!
Hair/Eyes: The color of your hair right now is light brown/dirty blond. Your eyes are the prettiest blue and they are getting more blue with each passing day.
Sleep: Most nights you are down for the night by 8:00pm and you sleep about 4 hours. You wake up at midnight and usually you go back to sleep pretty quickly. You're up again around 3:00am and then you are usually up for the day around 5:30/6:00am.
Highlights:
-Your favorite place to lay is on the couch with the curtains opened so the sun shines on you
-You love to sit up in your bouncy chair and watch the fish and the bubbles on the arch that hooks on the chair
-You've started sitting up in your highchair when we are in the kitchen cooking and you love being able to see what's going on
-You smile so big when we talk to you but your smiles grows so much bigger when Amelia talks to you...you love your sister
-You love your bath and you've started kicking and splashing with your arms
-You do NOT like to have a hat on your head. You can be so content and happy and the second you get a hat on your head, you have a major meltdown
-You love to ride in the car
-You do not like your pacifier no matter how many times we try to stick it in your mouth
-You went on your first airplane ride on November 16, 2013
-You are really getting vocal when someone talks to you
-You've been in your BUMBO seat a couple of times
-You are still taking medicine for your acid reflux and it's made a HUGE difference!
