Oh my goodness, I cannot believe my sweet little Avery is already two months old! He had his 2 month well-check up last week, and he is certainly one big boy!! He is measuring 13 pounds 1.5 ounces, and he's 23 inches long! That is 90th percentile for weight, and 75th for height! He also received his two month vaccinations. Poor baby. He was a bit out of sorts from the shots, but he was also battling a cold, so I'm sure that didn't help much either.
They say no two babies are the same, and boy were they right! I always wondered how he would compare to Lincoln. I am really amazed by how different their personalities are! Avery is such a relaxed, content baby. Lincoln was soooo high maintenance. He was one of those babies that always had to be moving. Avery rarely complains much, unless he's hungry, needs a diaper change, or uncomfortable. Basically if all of his basic needs are met, he's one happy camper! I keep saying this, but he really is the happiest baby ever. He is now smiling all the time, and cooing as well!! His little expressions crack me up!!
Avery is now wearing mostly 3-6 month clothing, with a few things in 3 months that he can still squeeze into. There are even a few one piece outfits in 6 months that fit him! He is still in size one diapers, but I think after this box he'll be moving onto size two.
He is eating between 4-6 ounces every 3 hours during the day. And :::whispers::: he is sleeping through the night. He usually will go to bed around 10pm, and wake up around 4am for a quick feed, and then he's back to sleep until 8ish or so. A-FREAKING-MAZING!!!
He really has been enjoying his playmat, and is even batting at the toys!! He'll sometimes even grab onto one, which of course amazes me every single time!
Right now, Avery has blue eyes!!! They are seriously gorgeous, and even more blue when he wears blue clothing. Lincoln's eyes were never truly blue. They were a grayish color, then they turned green, and now they're brown. I'm curious what color Avery's will be.
We had his two month photo shoot the other day, a week after he actually turned two months due to his nasty cold. Here are a few of the shots.
And here are a few of my favorite shots from the month.
I need to make a conscious effort to use my real camera more often. A lot of his photos have been taken on my old iPhone 4, and some look a bit grainy. But gosh, isn't he cute?!
I swear, I fall more in love with this little boy every day!
