Another month has flown by, and our little boy is already two months old! Wow, how Will has changed in the last month. He now weighs 12 pounds, 14 ounces (that is almost 5 pounds heavier than when he was born) and is 24 1/4 inches long. His length puts him in the >90%, and we can sure see it in his clothing. He has mostly outgrown all his 3 month clothing, especially anything that has feet in it. He's wearing 6 month sleepers at night, and even those are starting to limit his movement when he tries to stretch his legs out.
Will has a lot more awake time during the day. He is very alert, and most importantly, he gives lots of smiles now. He'll do the full body smile, kicking his legs and arms and shaking his head back and forth with a big, wide mouth whenever he's really excited to see someone. He's starting to "talk" to us whenever anyone pays special attention to him, giving us a little "goo" and "gah." Ellie even says, "Mom, listen, he's saying his first words."
Will is starting to do a little better in the sleep department. For about the last week and a half he is only waking up once a night to eat, then will go back to sleep till between 6 and 7 am (I hope I haven't jinxed myself by typing that). I'm hoping this continues and we can get into a good nighttime routine before I go back to work.
Will loves his swing, and is most content there. He doesn't fuss much during the day, but will get a little fussy in the evenings sometimes, especially when his tummy is bothering him. He can definitely get overstimulated when there are too many people around or too much commotion (which is strange since his brother and sister can be quite rowdy, but their noise never seems to bother him).
Will, you are a sweet boy and have brought so much joy into our home. We're so happy you are a part of our family.
