2 Months Old

My baby boy is now 2 months old! His birthday was Saturday and we had his well check this morning. Austin went with me and we were there a while, but Austin did great and so did Layton... til it was time for his shots. Poor baby. That just doesn't ever get any easier. =(

Layton's 2nd month has been a little challenging and crazy and even stressful at times but we are so thankful we think we've turned a corner. My sweet baby started having tummy issues and was fussy and crying lots, so after a few poop samples and an extra doctor's appointment, I cut dairy out of my diet and we've finally seen some improvement! We're still working through some unrelated "unknowns" but we are trusting God for peace and wisdom and good reports for our baby boy. (Prayers are greatly appreciated as the unknown is always scary.)

 Now for sweet monkey pics. =)

Austin at 2 months...
2 Months Stats Happenings:
*You weigh 12 pounds, 5 ounces and are 23 and 3/4 inches long. You are in the 75th percentile for weight and length

*You are already wearing lots of 3-6 months clothing but you still have some 3 month outfits that fit. You seem bigger than your brothers at this age even though Austin weighed a little more at 2 months. You are growing fast and filling out your clothes and will be ready for size 2 diapers as soon as we finish the rest of the size 1's we have in stock. I seriously can't believe how fast you're growing!

*You are nursing every 3 hours during the day and every 3.5-4.5 hours at night. We've had a few nights of you only waking up once!

*You are loving your swing (which we keep in the kitchen) and sit there just about every meal time or while I cook. You always end up in our laps during supper though. Sometimes you're super fussy during that time and sometimes you just don't want to be left out. =)

*You are also loving your mobile. I turn it on for you while I get your bath water ready just like I did for your big brothers when they were babies. You also like to listen to it and watch it while I fold your clothes.

*You are not loving tummy time so much. Haha. But we keep working on it at least once a day for a minute or two. Speaking of tummy time.... you rolled over 3 or 4 times this month!

*You have been moved into your room for almost the entire month and eveything has gone really smoothly. We still swaddle you for naptimes and bedtime and I think it's safe to say you're officially a paci baby. You always take it to go to sleep.

*You started smiling for us this month! Oh there's nothing like it! You've also started cooing and trying to talk. I just love this little stage!

*Garrison and Austin LOVE and ADORE you! The newness still hasn't worn off. =) They love to give you kisses and sing to you and ask to hold you and just can't get enough of you. I am so excited for the friendship the 3 of you will have. A forever bond. You are blessed to have them just like they are blessed to have you!

*Happy Birthday Layton Thomas Selph! We love you!!!
