Shane is 2 months old today!
He is such a sweet and content baby. He loves to cuddle, and his smiles are so sweet. He has begun to "talk" a little more, and it is so cute to hear him coo. He enjoys being tickled, and likes to talk to the star that hangs from the top of his playmat.
He is a great sleeper. He goes to bed around 7:30 pm, I wake him up for one last feeding at 10:00 pm, and for the past week, he has been sleeping straight until 7:00 or 7:30. One night, I didn't wake him for that 10:00 feeding, and he slept all the way from 7:30 pm until 6:30 am! I am guessing that he will do that consistently, but before allowing him to go that entire time, I want to make sure that he is gaining weight, and that the doctor gives us the "okay" to just let him drop that feeding.
We go to the doctor tomorrow for his well visit, and I'll update his height and weight stats then. We weighed him at home, and according to our scale, he is about 12.5 pounds (2.5 pounds more than at 1 month), so we'll see!
Big Brother and Big Sissy love to love on him. The other day, I walked in the room to find that Meredith had piled his blankets, some toys, his paci, AND her sippy cup on top of him. Such a sweet big sister, although I have to regularly remind her that we don't put blankets over the baby's head. =) Caleb calls him "Baby Shane", and Meredith calls him "Bee-Bee Shhhh." Quite cute. Caleb loves to hold him and sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" to him; he helps me by getting him a clean diaper or putting the old diaper in the garbage. Meredith loves to rock his car seat and sing "Ock, Bee-Bee" to him, which is her version of "Rockabye Baby". She is also helpful, and loves to follow directions...she'll bring me his burp cloth, put his jammies in the hamper, or get his paci. I love to watch the "big kids" care for their little brother, and it is so special to know that little Shane is so loved, not just by his Mom and Dad, but by his siblings as well.
Our little 2 month old sweetie pie is a joy. That pretty much sums it up. =)
Here he was at 1 month; it is crazy how much change occurs in a matter of mere weeks...
