Two Months!!

Comparing one month to two- starting to fill out finally!

Stats: At the last doctors appointment on Friday 9/9/11 he weighed SIX POUNDS!!! He's huge to us now! We did not get a length so I am not sure but last time he was measured was two weeks ago and he was 20.25 inches
Eating: We stopped nursing on 9/2/11. He was not gaining like he should and my mommy gut told me to call the doctor. After talking to Dr. Sheffield, we decided it was time to stop nursing and switch to formula because it was critical for him to start gaining quickly. He was falling further and further behind on the growth chart. Since we switched, he gained from 5 lb 2 oz to 6 lb in just one week! He loves formula and is having no problems with it so far. I am less stressed since the switch so I think it was best for momma and baby. We go back this Friday to be weighed again.
Clothes: Still wearing a couple premie sleepers but he had to move up to newborn sleepers also. He is in all newborn pants and onesies. Some are still too big but his camo and superstar outfit are finally fitting correctly even though he has been wearing them for awhile.
Diapers: Premies still
Sleeping: Think he has finally figured this out. Sleeps about 10 hours at night. We usually put him down about 8:00 pm or 9:00 pm and he will sleep until 6:00 am or 7:00 am. Wakes up to eat about 1:30 and 4:30. Sometimes he likes to stay up and play but usually goes back to sleep within 10 minutes of finishing his bottle. He still is not a great napper. There are several days when he will only nap 10-20 minutes at a time. As long as he keeps sleeping at night, I can handle the no napping.
Toys you love: Aaron's best friend is Clifford. He is a Wubba Nub paci. (picture below). We have a panic when he is lost. Aunt Sassy picked up an extra Clifford this week so we will have a back up if needed. LOVES watching the mobile onto of his swings. And he loves the toys hanging from his bouncy seat. He is really doing well tracking toys. He will even look for us when he hears us walk into a room. Its so fun to see Aaron start to want to play. He is just starting to grin but no full smile or laugh yet but I think its going to happen very soon. He is staying in your swing for 30 minutes or an hour at a time on some days. Other days he still hates it. Aaron is also staying in his bouncy seat some. We try to put him in there at supper time so Stephen and I can start eating together again.
Milestones this month: Tracking toys with his eyes, standing longer on our laps when we hold him, looking for mommy or daddy when he hears our voices, starting to grin (think we are on the verge of laughing and smiling at us). Doing much better with tummy time. Starting using the boppy pillow for tummy time and he seems to last longer.
Activities: His favorite thing is to look at ceiling fans for hours!! He looks for them in every room we go in. Its so funny how he never gets tired of it.

Aaron and Clifford- BFF4Life!
