Weighs: We haven't been to the doctor since his 2 month appointment (at the appt. he weighed 14lbs). I weighed myself on the scale alone the other day, and then held him with me on the scale, and...drumroll please...this boy is 17lbs! He gained three pounds in a month! We always get comments on how chunky he is, and I love each and every one of his rolls! #moretolove
Sleeps: Briggs is finally getting into a napping routine. He was kind of sleeping all day (and some days not as much) without much of a rhythm. But he is now taking two solidly long naps a day sometime in the morning and then in the early afternoon with a shorter nap in the late afternoon. He goes down sometime around 8pm on a normal weeknight. Several times this month he has gone 6-, 7-, and even 8-hour stretches without waking at night!!!! And it has been awesome! Some nights he still wakes after 4 or 5 hours, but not all the time. During the week, I wake him up to change his diaper and feed him a little before we take Wells to school, but on the weekends, he will stay asleep until 8 or later. He gets a gold star for sleeping!
Eats: On the two days I'm working and he gets bottles of breast milk, he is drinking 4.5-5oz every three hours (give or take). He tends to eat more often than that when he is with me, though. I am about to start making and freezing baby food (I did this with Wells & Grayer, and I love doing it!) so he'll be ready to start trying some out when he hits 4 months!
Wears: This guy is already wearing 6-month outfits! He can wear 3-6 months clothes, as well. I've already started getting out the 9-month clothing because if he keeps growing as quickly as he is now, he'll be wearing those in no time! He is in a size 2 diaper.
Plays: Briggs is the happiest baby. He smiles and coos all day. He barely cries (but throws a straight-up fit the minute he's decided he's been riding in the car too long!). He has started grabbing his blanket if it is within his reach, and he likes to shove his hands in his mouth right now, too. I've gotten a few little laughs out of him in the last week or so, but it's not a regular thing yet. Love baby laughs and can't wait for them to get louder and more frequent!
We can't imagine our lives without our sweet Briggs! He is so laid back and content and has been the perfect addition to our family. He brings a little peace to our chaos (I'm looking at you, Wells & Grayer!), and I wish he'd stay my little baby forever!
