2 Months Oh my

Thank you for playing along for my cheap entertainment.



We went to MT's 2 month check up today. He is 23.75 inches long (72%), 12lb 6 oz (48%), he has a small noggin in the 38.5 cm (13%) - Owell, So does his mom so, It's ok.



All seems to be going well with him and as long as things continue to go well, we do not have to go back until he is 4months. My Dr said that now is the time to start trying to enforce a bedtime ritual. I told him that we start around 7pm and he usually falls but wakes up sometime around 10-11pm and wants to eat again, then sleeps until 5-7am. He said that was pretty darn impressive and that we should continue that. He also stated that if he woke up before 7-8 hours not to offer him food, let him hang out in the crib to see if he would go back to sleep ..... UHM, I will try but I will not make promises if it gets bad. He said he was old enough and at a weight (over 12 lbs) that he should be able to last at least 8 hours w/o eatting. (we'll see) So, we are all good.



Here is a video we made on our trip - Sorry it's long, If i could figure out how to edit, I would:(anyone know how to embed a google video?)

I cannot believe he is two months already! I'm impressed that you've already got him on such a nice schedule.

So that gives you an idea of scale; J is almost exactly the same size and weight at 5 months. :)
Glad all is well! Here's hoping for 7-8 hour stretches!
