Little Brother Z is 2 Months Old!

Stats added on 11/14/11: 12lbs, 4 oz and 23in long.  50th percentile for everything!

Dear LBZ,

Oh my sweet baby Lu, we are having so much fun with you!  You have brought such joy into our home and have sealed our family of four off so nicely.

You slept for an amazing 8.5 hours one night this week, on your 8 week birthday as a matter of fact, but that certainly did not become your new normal.  You usually sleep about 4-5 hours first, then are up every 3-4 hours or so.  It is certainly better that every 2-3 hours, which is what you were doing for quite some time.

I was worried that you might have reflux or some sensitivity to what I was eating because of you terrible fussy time from 8-10pm, but that has also improved, especially since I stopped eating salads and broccoli.  I couldn't eat broccoli when I was pregnant either.  Funny how that continues now!

You now completely refuse to take the bottle.  You were doing so well, that I figured you didn't need to have one each day.  Then I got lazy and we went about a week or so without offering.  You haven't taken one since.  Hopefully you will figure it out when I go back to work in about 10 days.  I sure hope so!

You don't always want to nurse or rock to sleep.  In fact, you would much rather drift off in your swing or wrapped up in your swaddle blanket on the boppy in your crib.  I am not used to a baby who doesn't like to nurse to sleep!  I sometimes miss you when you are awake and I lay you in your crib, but you often drift right off if left alone.  I know I will love that one day!

You are growing like crazy and I can't wait to see how much you weigh!  Look how you have grown!

Oh how I love this sweet smile :)

I can't get this picture to rotate, but you finally fit into (and I finally started to use) your brother's cloth diapers!

BBZ finally agreed to hold you.  I think he was afraid of hurting you.

All dressed for the World Series!  He even got a new BG 4.0 baseball diaper!

There is nothing in the world cuter than a baby boy in jeans and a striped shirt :)

Tummy time!

There is a picture of BBZ in this same outfit!  I'm going to have to start labeling pictures since you look so much alike.  Check out the picture here!

We are having so much fun watching you grow, sweet LBZ.  We can't wait to see what is to come!
