It is getting harder to put him on this horse! I might regret taking these pictures monthly on the horse, but oh well! I started it! Sorry for the not-so-professional pictures here!
So this is more for me....I documented notes during the last month to post so I could remember what happened when with Stetson. Here goes:
At 2 months Stetson : Eats 5 ounces every 3 hours.
Stetson 5 weeks- started talking A LOT—few smiles
Slept through entire firework show. ( 4th of July)
Totally started a routine of going to bed around 7 or 8—waking up between 12-2am and then again about 4 or 5 …eating and then up at 7ish eat…sleep till 9. Last night did 8-1:30am then didn’t get up until 6am! Lets hope it continues!
6 weeks-total growth spurt—very hungry for a few days and only wanted to sleep, he was very upset when we tried to keep him awake. Sleeping most nights from 7-8 to 2-4 in morning.
7 weeks- Started smiling A LOT! Tried putting him to sleep on stomach in pack n play instead of bouncer, he has done great. No more swaddling, which I am happy of because it is so hot outside and I hated swaddling him when we are dying of heat. The only thing that has happened this week that is weird is that he has been waking up around midnight, three and six for feedings instead of sleeping through the midnight feeding. Is smiling much more often and talking/cooing a ton. He seems to be selective about doing it though even though he is doing it more.
8 weeks- started drinking 5 oz and using number two nipples, smiling ALL the time! Usually when he lays down on the changing table is the best spot for smiles! We stopped the number 2 nipples for now because he was choking. Nice to have a bottle done in 10 minutes rather than 25 minutes with the number one nipple, but not nice to have him choking! The day after he turned 2 months we started him wearing 6 month clothes. I can't even believe it. He is soo long! I am so anxious to see his stats when we go to the doctor!! Now is back to waking up at 4 or 5 am, MUCH better!
Stats won't be up until August 17th, we had to wait almost a month for Stetsons 2 month appt, meaning he will almost be 3 months! But we love our doctor so we dont care!
Updated: his stats as of August 17th:
