You are already a quarter of a year old!? You are growing and learning so quickly, it's almost scary! We are loving your emergence into babyhood as you leave those sleepy newborn days.
Buddy, you are all about being your own person, and I love that! You will never be the same as your brother, but it would be okay if you wanted to pick up his sleeping habits. :) That being said, you are not an awesome sleeper. You are very unpredictable. You nap anywhere from 30 minutes-2 hours and your night stretches vary between 3-6 hours. Hopefully, this month you get a little more consistent.
I don't know your exact growth stats, but at your 2 month appointment two weeks ago, you weighed 11.1 pounds and were 22.25 inches long! That puts you in the 15th percentile for both length and weight! You are wearing mostly 0-3 month clothes and size 1 diapers when you aren't in a cloth diaper. You are getting really good at holding your head up and can almost roll over! You are smiling, cooing, laughing, and kicking. We are so pleased with your growth and development!
You love to eat, baby Jude! During the day you eat every three hours and get up once or twice at night to eat. You've been nursing almost exclusively to this point. You usually have a 5 ounce bottle of breast milk before bed. You do great at taking bottles which is great, starting tomorrow you will be 50% bottle fed while mommy is at work.
Jude, you have two moods: happy and furious! Things that make you happy: mommy, ceiling fans, playing in the floor, milk, funny sounds/faces, white noise, bath time, having your face/head tickled, mornings, kicking your legs, and playing in your bouncy seat. Things that make you furious: having to wait for milk, wet/dirty diapers, burping, afternoons/evenings, and being swaddled when you don't want to be.
Darling boy, you are loved so very much! Your mommy and daddy are so proud of you and your big brother is completely enchanted by you. We are so thankful that you have made us a family of four!
Love you forever, and ever,
