Reed is Two Months Old!

We can hardly believe it, but Reed is two months old today!  At his 2-month doctor's appointment, our sweet boy weighed in at 13 pounds and measured 24 1/4 inches long - he loves his mommy's milk!  He's already changed so much since last month.  Here are all the things we want to remember about Reed at two months:
  • He starts grunting about 45 minutes before waking up.  Like his daddy, it takes him a long time to actually get moving!
  • He follows us around a room, both with his eyes and his head.
  • SMILES!  We get more and more every day, but our favorites are when he smiles at us from his crib after a nap.  He seems so happy to see us!
  • LAUGHS!  This started toward the end of this month, but Reed loves when we make faces at him and laughs accordingly.
  • He loves the mobiles on his crib and swing, and also likes the moving features on his Rainforest bouncer chair.
  • While he doesn't really look at his hands yet, Reed loves to suck on them and sometimes even holds his pacifier.
  • He takes five ounces of breastmilk in the mornings.  
  • At seven weeks old, Reed started sleeping through the night - from around 10:30 to 5:30 a.m.  The extra sleep is just heaven for his parents!
  • Reed is still very "expressive", but has traded some of his goat noises for coos.  While he still grunts on occasion, he sounds less and less like Beavis every day.
Here are some pictures of our boy at 2 months.  Could he be any cuter?

Our sweet two-month old!

Smile time!
He still loves his bathies.
