Shep [2 Months]

Shep is TWO months old (as of the 7th)! This past month has been super busy and filled with fun. Shep went to Athens Church for the first time, celebrated his first Halloween, & I went back to work!


Weight/Height: Shep is 12.5 lbs and 23.5 in. Same exact measurements as Bennett at two months. I felt so confident that Bennett was a bigger baby but I guess not!

Hair: Still brown and still falling out on top.

Eyes: Shep has his daddy's eye shape and his mommy's eye color : ) I love is big blue eyes!


Clothes: We transitioned into 0-3 and 3 month clothes a couple weeks ago. I have loved pulling out all of Bennett's old clothes for him. Not only is it great on a financial level, it is also fun to see him in his big brother's clothes :)

Diapers: Size 1 but we will probably move to size 2 within the next month or so. 

Sleeping: Shep drinks his last bottle at 8:30pm and then sleeps until 3:00am or 3:30am. Then he is back up around 6:00am. Hoping for some longer stretches this month ; ) Shep is still sleeping in his Rock-n-Play in our room. I was waiting until he was sleeping through the night to move him to his crib but I may go ahead and move him soon hoping that it will help him sleep longer. It almost seems like he is waking up in the middle of the night out of habit because he pretty much falls back asleep as soon as he starts drinking his bottle. He finishes his bottle and I put him right back in his Rock-n-Play without a peep. I'm going to start trying to follow the Moms on Call sleep training methods for when he wakes up to see if he will fall back asleep. 


Likes: Eating, taking a bath, seeing his big brother, & snuggling with mommy.

Dislikes: Getting out of the bath and being tired. 

Eating: Shep drinks a 5.5oz bottle every 3 hours during the day and once in the middle of the night. We are still following, and loving, the Moms on Call schedule for sleeping and eating. 

Milestones: Started daycare 3 days a week. We are so thankful for the amazing people at ATP that take care of our babies during their time at daycare. Shep also went with me to vote in his first election : ) The sweet pollers even gave him his own "future voter" sticker. 

Baby items we can't live without: Rock-n-Play, MamaRoo, 4Moms bathtub, Fisher Price Sit-me-Up floor seat, and the Solly Baby Wrap!
