Precious Baby :)

2 Month Check-Up Stats: 
Weight: 13lbs 9oz = 90th percentile
Length: 23in = 50th percentile 

We have one short chubby baby! Max went to the doctor's today and he is doing great! He hated the shots of course, but as soon as it was over, he was pretty content again. As much as I hate to hear him cry, I think he has such a cute one! I seriously love my baby so much I can hardly stand it! Thank goodness too, because otherwise I would have a hard time taking care of him considering how much sleep I don't get. Max tends to go to bed around 1 or 2 in the morning and sleeps until 11 or 12 in the afternoon while eating every three hours in between. Not too bad I guess, except lately he hasn't been able to sleep anywhere except for in the swing or in my arms, which means I am spending a lot of time on the couch. He eats every 2 hours throughout the day and takes about six or seven 1/2 hour naps, which makes it so hard for me to get anything done because I feel like I have to entertain him when he's awake. He'll be pretty content just sitting in the swing or bouncy seat by himself and sometimes I'll catch him smiling to himself while I'm in the kitchen making lunch or something; I just like to see him smile and learning to laugh and coo so I try and talk to him and play with him while he's awake. Max is such a strong baby!! He can hold his head up for quite some time during tummy time. He can pretty much hold his own weight on his legs too as long as we help him to balance. This impressed the doctor very much. She said most babies can't bear weight on their legs at this age. Max LOVES his hands! When he starts to wake up from his naps we'll just hear him sucking on his hands making tons of smacking noises. It's really cute, especially when a hand starts to stray from his mouth, he'll sometimes move his head to his hand rather than move his hand to his mouth. Here are some pictures from the last month: Enjoy!
He has such a goofy smile! I love it!
We got him a new jacket for winter. We bought it big so it can fit over his sweaters.

Isn't he the cutest baby in the world?!!! (I know, I'm biased.)  I should probably post more often so I don't have to put so many pictures in one post!

He is so cute! That is so cool that he can hold up his head already. Hannah just started a month ago and she is now 6 months. Can't wait to meet him in a couple of weeks.
