Marshall: Two Months

Our Marshmallow is twice as old!

Marshall is 12 pounds 10 ounces (67%) and 23 1/2 inches (66%) long. He is so much chunkier than he was a month ago!

It will be interesting to keep comparing him to Vanderman. Vander was 14 pounds 8 ounces and 23 inches long. They both started to smile but I think they may be starting to look different. It just depends on the picture I think!

Sleeping has gotten better, but not consistent.  We moved him to his room right at six weeks old when he was eating every 3 hours instead of every two. Best nights have been a 5 1/2 hour stretch between feedings, followed by a four hour stretch, but worst case is every three hours. He is really not fun to put to sleep in the evenings and he fights being laid down in his crib until around 11pm. Hopefully that improves this next month.  But he does sleep in until 9am or so. If we could bump all that up like two hours that would make for a much happier mommy. We have had some awake days where he is up for 5 hours straight and some sleepy days where he eats and sleeps until the evening. This has no correlation with how putting him to bed goes unfortunately.

The baby smiles started right after he was one month old. They make life so amazing! Marshall loves it when you talk to him, sing to him and especially when you give him kisses.

He is starting to be entertained by toys and lights and sounds. He enjoys being walked around the house facing everything. We bought a fancy swing that helps for about ten minutes (and getting longer), but that helps get some laundry done or rest tired parent arms.

Vander has still been a great brother. Him and Dylan were playing peek-a-boo with Marshall and everyone loved it.

We had Marshall's first trip to Nebraska this month. Marshall's first day without Mommy since I started back at work. Both of which went well!

It is crazy how time goes with the second baby. I think it is because you realize how short each phase is. I can hardly remember Vander being so little. And thinking about the fact that in two months Marshall will start rice cereal is astounding.

It has been a fun two months with Marshall as part of the family!
