Ladies and Gentleman…we have ourselves a Bigun’!
Austin is definitely a different animal than Jamie. He’s also chunkier!! At 2 months old, Jamie weighed almost a pound less and was 1/4 in. longer. Needless to say, he has already moved to size 3-6 months and size 2 diapers.
Austin’s personality is starting to shine through in the last 4 weeks. He’s a super happy baby in the mornings cooing and smiling. At 6 weeks old he even started smiling for the camera.
This last month Austin also got baptized! I still need to do a separate post for that one…oopsie!
Although, Austin still has his grumpapotomus moments, we’ve had some break through moments, too. He’s still a fussy high maintenance child, but I’m finding that the fussy moments are getting less and less. I’ve also been able to get him to stay in the swing for little bits which has been a nice change and allows me to get some things done around here!
Austin isn’t a big fan of the tummy time, but we’re working on it!
He definitely loves his playmat, though!
Generally, Austin is a sweet and adorable little a chunk a monk and we love him very much!
I’d say Jamie is his biggest fan!
By 7 weeks Austin has been giggling, too! He especially loves when you do patty cake with him. It makes him smile everytime! Like his sister he loves getting naked! In fact, one of the first times I heard him giggling was one morning when I was changing his clothes! I think it’s because he’s ticklish under his chin (if you can get there! There are a few chin folds!)
He sleeps ok at night, but truthfully I was hoping for a little bit longer on his long sleep stretch. He typically falls asleep before 10pm. On a good night he doesn’t wake up until 3:30 am, then again at 5:30, and then finally at 8:30 am. Typically he wakes up only twice, thankfully!
In terms of his eating, he is a much slower eater than Jamie. She could eat in ten minutes flat and be satisfied afterwards. Austin sometimes is uncomfortable when he eats and it can seem like he’s in pain. Lately, I’ve started feeding him less, more often, and that seems to be helping him some. However, I don’t think it helps his sleep at night. There are times I know he wakes up only because he’s hungry. He’ll typically fall asleep within minutes/in the middle of of his feeding. I’m trying to feed him more at night so he’ll sleep longer. Let’s keep our fingers crossed he’s sleeping though the night by the time I get back to school! Dr. P said that 80% of infants sleep through the night at 4 months. I don’t want to keep comparing him to Jamie, but well, I’m hoping Austin follows suit!
He’s just so cute when he’s sleeping!
