Bennett | 2 Months

Another month has come and really does go so fast. I feel like we've really made a turn for the better this past month. We got Bennett's feedings under control with the right formula + medicine combination and he just seems happier overall (which makes Mommy and Daddy happier too!) Bennett did develop a little bit of cradle cap but since he has so much hair you can't really see it. Speaking of his has slightly gotten out of control and I find myself wishing boys could wear headbands so I could try to tame this mane of his! ; )

We are settling in to our new routine and I am learning how to be a full-time grad student and working mama. Only 4 months until I am done with my Masters and the school year is over. Can't wait for a summer full of fun with my Bennett!!!!

Here are a few pictures from over the past month...

I can't believe how much he has changed since his 1 month picture!!

Weight: This boy is a chunker... 12.5lbs! 75th percentile : )

Length: 23 inches, also the 75th percentile (his head is 15.5 & 50th%)

Hair: A lot more blonde is starting to show through underneath but he is still my brown haired boy for now! When people see him in person they cannot get over how much hair he has...but it really has fallen out a ton!

Eyes: Still VERY blue

Clothes: We are official out of newborn clothes and it is so bittersweet. Bennett is wearing mostly 0-3 months and a couple 3-6 month outfits.

Diapers: Size 1

Sleeping: Bennett goes down for bed at 9:00 and usually sleeps until 2:00 or 3:00, eats and goes back down until 6:00 or 7:00. Some nights are better than others and were working on getting rid of the middle of the night feeding : ) He has consistently been sleeping in his crib at night and is doing great with it. He finally loves to be swaddled and it puts him to sleep instantly.

Likes: Bath time, his car seat, going on walks, eating, and his paci.

Dislikes: Being hungry, having a dirty diaper, and getting out of the bath. 

Eating: 5oz bottles every 3 hours during the day and once in the middle of the night.

Milestones: smiling and cooing a ton! He is also holding his head up really well during tummy time. 

Baby items we can't live without: MamaRoo, Wubanub paci, burp clothes, Dr. Browns bottles, baby bath tub, Rock n Play, Fisher Price Sit-me-up floor seat, and zip up sleepers


  1. He is such a cutie pie! Full-time grad student and working mama? You go girl! Praying for you and sweet Bennett :)

  2. He is sooo sweet. You are a rockstar mama and I totally look up to you, and will probably bombard you with questions when its time for me to go back to work after my little guy is born. I am so excited for you to have a break from work and your school to just enjoy your baby this summer, you guys are going to have the BEST time!
