Dear Pierce (2 months!)

Dear Pierce, 

On Friday you turned 2 months old! Over the past month you went from a little shrimp to a little chunk. You have the most precious little round face and rolls on your arms and legs. We can not believe how far you've come from all the weight checks in the beginning! 

-Monday the 18th was your official 2 month check up and you were 11 pounds and 14 oz (50th percentile) and 22 inches long (10th percentile)
-the day after you were 2 months old you wore your last newborn diaper. You are now wearing a size 1.
-you also are now wearing 0-3 month clothes! You can still fit in your newborn clothes but you looked more comfortable in 0-3 so we made the swap this past weekend.
-you are still sleeping in your pack n play and you usually wake once during the night with your last bottle at around 9:30. You normally wake up around 4 to eat and then go back to sleep. 
-you are still nursing and rotating expressed milk bottles. Last week you went from having 4 oz of breast milk every 2-3 hours to 4.5 oz every 3 hours. 
-you started smiling this month! You have the cutest smile and we love seeing it!
-you also have started babbling and making little noises here and there. We love hearing your tiny voice!
-you love to be held and snuggled
-you do not love to be messed with! You don't like diaper changes, clothing changes or getting your fingernails clipped. You love baths but you do not like to get out and get dried off! 
-since big sister went back to school, you spend your days with just mommy! Mommy does not want to leave you to go back to work in a couple weeks but we met your teachers at the school and know you will be taken care of.
-when you are eating you fan out your toes and it cracks us up!
-you are not a big fan of tummy time. When we try you put your hand in your mouth and fall asleep
-you have a definite spoiled cry when you want attention. We call it your pterodactyl cry.
-your sister is obsessed with you. She always wants to hold your hand, give you a paci, tickle you or talk to you. She loves you so much! She calls you her bubby and is so proud to be your big sister. 

It is amazing how much you have changed over the past month! We are still trying to figure out who you look like!! We love you so much and can't wait to watch you grow and learn.
