Our little Teddster is two months old today! When I was pregnant with him I predicted that he would be a baby who didn't sleep, spit up a lot and ate a ton of food - basically the exact opposite of Tillie. I was right about two of those things. He does spit up a lot and LOVES to eat. However, his sleep isn't too bad. I guess I didn't realize how bad of a sleeper Tillie was. She didn't take any semblance of a nap unless I was holding/wearing her until around 3.5 months. Teddy takes naps! In his bed(Rock n' Play Sleeper)! During the day! Typically they are little cat naps, but it allows me to get a few things done or hang out with Tillie during the day. We usually go to bed for the night around 10-10:30. He usually sleeps for around 5 hours, is up for 20-50 minutes eating, then goes back to sleep until about 6:30a. There are some nights that are much worse, but once every two weeks or so he lets me sleep 6.5 hours straight. Bliss.
He can still wear a lot of his newborn clothes(like the bodysuit in this picture), but 0-3 month clothes fit him pretty well too. He wears size 1 diapers. In the past 6 weeks he's gained 4lbs and grew 3 inches - 11lbs 13oz(50%), 23 3/4"(75%)! He's a pretty happy kid who likes to smile and tries to laugh. If you put him in front of a mirror he starts talking to himself and grinning.
