Garrett - 2 Months (a Little Late)

Garrett Parker is growing and growing! We took him to the doctor for his 2 month well visit and he weighed in at 13lb 6oz (75%) and 23.5" (70%). His head was 40cm, which doubled from his birth! Is that normal?! He got three shots and an oral vaccine, but handled it like a champ and only cried for about 10 seconds. He is wearing all 3 month or 3-6 month clothes.

He sleeps on his belly all the time. I know that's not recommended, but he prefers it and sleeps way better that way. The bonus is that he doesn't mind tummy time at all and his head is perfectly shaped. The downside is that he pretty much hates being on his back - which means he isn't crazy about the swing, bouncy seat or his car seat. He has rolled over 3-4 times and is great at holding his head up. Around 6-7 weeks, I started putting Garrett to bed between 8:30-9pm just to see how he would do and he wasn't waking up until 4am! By now, he goes to bed (awake!) around 8:15-8:45 and sleeps until 7:30-8am!! He's a pretty great napper too. I think we'll transfer him to his own room sometime this month, but I like having him farther away from the boys room so he doesn't wake up when they do.

As of now he still has bright blue eyes and started smiling on purpose this month too. He is a momma's boy and loves to be held. I've had a lot of success wearing him in the bjorn when we go out, which keeps both hands free for the boys too.

I can't believe more than two months have already flown by! We love this little man more and more every day!

Such a cute and big boy! His 2 month stats are pretty similar to Levi :) That is amazing how well he is sleeping! Yay for sleeping through the night for you too :)
