Two Months

Briggs is now 2 months old!  He is a mellow, smiley, cuddly, happy little guy.  He weighs about 12 pounds and wears his 0-3 month clothes and his size 1 diapers.  He eats every 2.5-3.5 hours during the day and usually has a 4-6 hour stretch of sleeping at night.  He naps 3-4 times during the day, going to sleep about 1-1.5 hours after he eats with a longer awake time in the evening.  He continues to spit up regularly, but I like to think it may be diminishing a little bit.  (That might just be wishful thinking.)  And he's starting to lose the hair on top of his head.  Regardless of the spitting up and hair loss, he's still adorable!  And I'm only a little biased...

Likes:  Briggs is generally a happy little guy.  He likes to eat.  He loves bath time.  He really likes being outside.  He enjoys his play mats, his swing, and his bouncy seat for short periods of time with his play mat and his swing keeping him happy longer than his bouncy seat.  He enjoys music and loves being talked to.  He definitely prefers to be held than to be laid down, and he enjoys being in the Baby K'tan and the Baby Bjorn.  He uses a pacifier occasionally when he's fussy or tired, but is fickle about when he wants it and when he doesn't.

Happily hanging out in the Baby Bjorn

Bath time is awesome!!

Dislikes:  Briggs generally only fusses when he is hungry or tired.  He doesn't like to be left alone, only tolerating his bouncy seat or play mat or swing for short periods of time (5-10 minutes).  And he prefers having dry, clean pants.

Skills:  Briggs is growing and changing.  He is very smiley when people talk to him.  He can swipe and kick at his hanging toys.  He will hold onto a rattle for several seconds.  He can lift his head for brief periods during tummy time, and holds his head up well when upright.  He happily splashes the water out of his bathtub.  He's still a very good eater, a good sleeper, and very tolerant of all the love his sisters give him.

What a great 2 months it's been!!  What a blessing he is!!
