Josiah is 2 Months

You have been with us for two months now. You are currently eating at 6am-ish, 9am-ish, 12pm-ish, 3pm-ish, 6pm-ish, 9pm-ish and then again around 11pm-ish. You go to bed immediately after the 6am, 6pm and 9pm. The rest of the time you are up for 60-90 minutes. You sleep wonderfully at night in your bed. During the day you tend to sleep better in your swing, car seat or somebodies arms. That is not our goal and when we are home I definitely work on you sleeping in your bed. Since you have older siblings you have learned to be flexible and out of the house often. Your feeds are semi flexible to work around your siblings. You are such a good little sport.
Right now you have figured out how to work your legs out of your swaddle but you still sleep better swaddled so we try to do it just right so you don't escape. You are extremely smiley. You grin at anyone who will talk to you. But especially those you know like grandma, daddy, mommy and of course your smothering doting siblings. You brother is very proud of you and loves doing things for you.

Your sister wants to love and kiss on you all the time. We try and keep her to kissing your head or your toes. She really loves kissing your face though and giving you things such as the sponge from her toy stethoscope she thought you might like to eat.

Speaking of eating. You have been fighting eating a lot. We can't quite tell if it is reflux or milk supply but we are working on it. On your 2 month you weighed 12lb14oz. that is up 29 oz since last month. You are growing perfectly. This week we put away all of your 3 month Jammies and brought out the 6 month ones. You are going to be a big boy. If your doctor is correct you will be over 6ft. You will give Uncle Michael a run for his money. We love you very much and are so enjoying your little personality that is starting to shine through that beautiful dimpled smile of yours.
