Bentley is 2 Months!

Actually he was two months ten days ago, but- second child.

Last month we used Pooh Bear as Bentley's size comparison stuffie, but then we got this awesome dragon from my aunt and he will from now on grace the monthly picture because I love him.

This month Bentley is:

  • Grasping things with both hands; mostly hair, but sometimes toys
  • Smiling. A lot! He is a happy, happy baby and will smile anytime you talk him, smile at him, or when he sees Fynn

  • A chatterbox with lots of vowel sounds and cooing. The best is when you talk to him and he "talks" back.
  • Rolling on his side and moving around a lot more.
  • Sleeping pretty well. We're usually up to nurse twice a night, but we had one night where he only got up once!!!!
  • Staying awake for longer stretches during the day which is fun as he's looking around more, interacting and figuring out the world

  • Spitting up a lot. Yuck. I feel like I'm constantly changing his (and my!) clothes throughout the day. I had forgotten how much laundry a newborn creates.
  • Gaining weight like a champ. At his 2 month check up he weighed in at 10 pounds 1 ounce and is now 22 inches long. Since he is exclusively breastfed, I take that as a huge personal victory.
  • Currently wearing size 1 diapers and still mostly newborn clothes although he now fits into some of the smaller 0-3 month outfits.

  • Mellow. He's a go with the flow, check out the world kind of baby. He doesn't get upset often, and when he does it's usually because I haven't fed him lately or he's annoyed that no one has held him for too long.
  • Loving being worn. His favorites are the ring sling and mei tai, but he is starting to love our Ergo 360 (now that I finally figured out how to get him in the infant insert comfortably).

  1. Where has the time gone?! And I've been neglecting my Bloglovin feed to boot (it gets way too cluttered between My Subscription Addiction and Ramblings of a Suburban Mom but I love them both too much to unfollow them.) He's so big and adorable!


The best part of blogging is hearing from my readers, so share your thoughts and ideas... or just say "hi"!
