Zach is 2 Months Old!

*This post is totally late....maybe next month I'll get to it on the correct date....probably not but I can dream

Zach is 2 months old!  He changes everyday.  It is amazing to see how different everything is after just a few short weeks.  I can't wait to see how things grow and change by Christmas time.

- 11lb & 9oz and 22 & 3/4" long which places him in the 50th percentile for height and weight....don't worry he makes up for it with head size, which he measures in the 90th percentile.

- We are still in size 1 diapers and they are not getting tight.  They are still a little baggy on his tiny baby butt.

- He is in size 0-3 month clothes.

- We still use the Similac Sensitive formula but we don't have nearly as many problems with gas....although he can clear the room with some of his farts.  He is taking 5oz every 3-4 hours.  We're on a fairly consistent eating schedule where he gets 5oz at 6am, 10am, 2pm, 5pm, 7:30pm and 9:30pm.  We're testing things out where we drop the 9:30pm feeding and move the 7:30pm feeding back to 8pm...we'll see.

- Zach is still such a good sleeper, thank god!  It's like he knows when mommy needs the extra sleep and bumps is up a notch.  He is now sleeping 8 hours or more at night.  He goes to bed by 10pm at the latest and gets up around 6am.  He goes right to sleep at night with ocean noises playing and his pacifier.

- We get so many smiles and even a few laughs.  Daddy makes you smile the most, there is something about his voice Zach just loves.  Along with the smiles we do get the stink eye though....that look when he is not impressed.

- He is "talking" a lot.  He likes to coo and make noises when you talk to him.  He is having a whole conversation in his head some days.

- He is liking tummy time more and gets his arms and legs moving like crazy.  He likes to play better on his back where he can swat and kick his hanging toys.

- He likes to sit in his bumbo for very short periods of time, but is controlling his head very well and getting better at sitting up with some help.  He loves to stand and look around....clearly not on his own, but is supporting his own weight pretty good when we hold him up.

- He loves the swing.  We just got a swing and he loves it and my arms get a little bit of rest which is nice.

- He loves music.  Primarily he loves classical music and rap, totally weird I know.  We have a toy that I like to call the baby ipod that we now bring with us everywhere.  It plays music and lights up and he loves it.
