Yesterday, our little “WyGuy”, turned a whole two months old! This second month has been much easier and much more fun than the first! He smiles all the time – especially after he eats, makes lots of funny noises, poops like a champ, loves blowing spit bubbles, and kicks his feet 24/7!
This morning Wyatt had his two month checkup! He's a little on the small side weighing in at 11 lbs 5 ounces (25%) and is 22.25 inches long (16%), but the doctor said he's doing great! He also had his first set of shots, which led to blood curdling screams. Rowen would often times get high fevers after her shots, so I’m eager to see if Wyatt will do the same, fingers crossed he doesn’t!
As far as milestones go, the past couple of weeks he’s become so much more alert and has really started to track things with his eyes. He LOVES laying on his activity mat, listening to the music and batting at the toys hanging in front of him.
Best of all (and I really hope I don't jinx it by saying this), Wyatt has started sleeping through the night, 8pm to 5/6am, which is keeping Ryan and I very happy! He’s been sleeping in his own room, in his Rock 'n Play sleeper since night one, and we hope to transition him to his crib in the next month or so. He sleeps swaddled up tight (in these), which he loves!
Since I’m now back in the office (part-time), a more defined schedule is a must! During the day he eats 3.5 ounces every 2-3 hours, takes a 1-2 hour morning nap and a 2-3 hour afternoon nap! He then gets a bottle and is put to bed around the same time every night. I said it with Rowen and I’ll say it again with Wyatt, I think a constant, everyday routine is the key to good sleeping habits! Next week he starts daycare and I pray that our schedule stays the same because this mama needs her sleep!
