Mason Mitchell: 2 Months

Mason turned 2 months on June 15th, 2014.  (Today is Mason's 4 month birthday so I'm only 2 months behind in publishing this post!)  

Age: 2 months
Height: 22.5" (31st percentile)
Weight: 10lbs 11oz (24th percentile)

Nicknames: Mr. Mason, brother, Mase

Milestones: Mason smiled for the first time this month and now he smiles ALL the time and he also coos at everything!  He also finally had his first real bath with water in the tub!  We had been doing sponge baths still.  He loved splashing around with his legs!

Sleep: Mason still naps throughout the day whenever he's tired.  He normally naps in the rock and play or the swing but sometimes he'll nap on a blanket on the floor.  At night he wakes up twice to eat.  He usually wakes up around 11pm/midnight and again around 4-5am.  

Best Moment: Seeing Mason's first smile!

Health:  Mason is still spitting up quite a bit but since he's gaining weight, the doctors aren't worried.  He seems happier after eating now so I'm hoping he isn't in pain and he's just a "spitty" baby!

Eating: Mason nurses about 8 times a day and his sessions are usually about 15-20 minutes.  He still hasn't had a bottle!Sizes: Mason moved into 0-3/3 month clothes!  He still has a few newborn outfits he can fit into as well...such a peanut!  A lot of the 3 month clothes are still too wide but the newborn clothes were getting way too short for him...he couldn't fully extend his legs in NB sleepers anymore!  He just moved into size 1 diapers before turning 2 months!  He goes through about 8 diapers a day.

Things I want to remember: Mason loves his piano playmat and monkey bouncer!  He is starting to bat at toys and can even hold onto his o-ball for a few seconds if we help him get a grip on it.  He is constantly kicking his legs and people always comment how he's always moving!  He also LOVES blankies.  He loves to snuggle his Aden and Anais blankets.  He also loves being outside in the warm weather.  He has started to really take to his pacis and still prefers the "soothies" and his doggy wubbanub.  Sometimes when he's fussy, he'll immediately calm down if we step outside.  Mason's hair has a little swirl in the back and it's super cute!  I hope it stays that way!
