2 and 3 Months
I never got around to doing one of these for the 2nd month mark because we were moving and I lost my chalk. I just got around to buying more so here is the 3 month one along with Ben's info for the past 2 months.
2 Month Stats:
Weight: 15 pounds (98%)
Height: 24 inches (98%)
3 Month Stats:
Weight: 16 pounds
He's finally slowing down in the weight department, thank goodness! I thought he'd hit 30 pounds by 6 months at the rate he was going. Here are some specifics on my (still not so) little man:
Breastfeeding every 2-3 hours during the day and anywhere from every 2 to every 4-6 hours at night. It varies night by night.
He goes to sleep around 7 and wakes around 12 to eat. From there, it varies. He could be up every 2 hours or he could do two 4 hour stretches or two 3 hours and then a 2 hour one. All I know is, it never feels like enough sleep.
He wears 6-9 month clothing. At three months old.
Poor little guy got really sick for Thanksgiving. He had his first bad cough with major congestion and from there got pink eye as well. He's finally on the mend it seems. Max was never this sick - probably because he didn't have a big brother to share his germs with him. Oh well, hopefully Ben's immune system will benefit from being exposed to everything Max brings in.
What else can I say about Ben? He's a pretty happy baby and loves to smile at anyone who will give him some attention. He likes to play in his play mat for 10-15 minutes at a time, but then wants to be held again. He loves being worn in the ergo to sleep and is still being swaddled at night. He is taking a pacifier more and more these days. He's started rolling from his tummy to his back and now 7/10 times in tummy time he just rolls right out of it. He seemingly never stops moving - always kicking and flapping his arms. He LOVES to watch Max play. We've yet to get a good belly laugh from him, but he get plenty of happy squeals. He smells. He almost never poops, but his farts rival every single person's in this family. And being that Ritchie is in this family, that says a lot.
Here are a few of my favorite pics from the past 2 months:

What a life!
Tummy time master! This was before he was rolling.
This melts me.
