Baby Mason: Two Months Old

I am continuing the baby updates here on Rocky Top from Teacher's Pet. I can't believe it's already been a month since my last baby update! This little guy though...ah, he's my favorite.

Stats: 11lb 11.5 oz, 21.5 inches long [at birth he was only 7lb 2.8oz, so he's chunking up good!]
Eating: Expressed breastmilk by bottle. He typically eats 2.5 to 3 oz per bottle and averages about 10 bottles each day.
Sleeping: Still sleeping with me during the night. Mason goes to sleep around 9 or 10 and then wakes up at 2 and about 5 or 6am. It's pretty awesome. He's getting better about napping in his bouncy, so I'm hoping to transition him to naps in the crib and eventually nights in the crib.
Wearing: Some 0-3 months, some 3-6 months. He's wearing size 2 diapers and I just started cloth diapering last week.
Personality: He is still very sweet in temperament. He doesn't fuss or cry too much.
Milestones: Mason's starting to be awake more during the day between feedings. He was on a schedule where he would eat, stay up for an hour or so, sleep for an hour, wake up and eat, etc. Now that sleep in between bottles is happening less frequently. He is smiling and cooing a ton more. He is most expressive early in the day and late in the day. Not only does he respond to me, but Mason is also now responding to Nick - he'll turn his head towards him when he hears him :) He's also becoming more aware of his hands. A few days ago, he brought one up to his mouth to gnaw on. And he also received his first real round of shots - which wasn't the greatest experience for little man, but my doc likes to space them out, so he only got two. Mason cried for all of 15 seconds and then went back to sleep - just like his brother and sister used to do.

  • Sitting upright (not being cradled)
  • The blanket next to his face while he sleeps (Matthew was like this too)
  • Eating
  • His playmat and bouncy seat toys
  • Being talked to
  • Shots
  • Laying flat to sleep
  • Being hot
  • Mommy trying to pick his boogers
