Hank is 2 months old!
Hank, momma's boy is growing, growing, growing. I cannot believe its been 2 months since we brought home that little blue bundle. Time really flies with the second child.
Speaking of second child, your relationship with your big sister is already blossoming. You love to watch her and just smile and coo. And Hanky-poo, or Hanky boo-boo, you might just be a little upset that she gave you those nicknames, but its too funny to make her stop now.
You have pretty much outgrown all of your newborn clothing. You are currently wearing 3 month clothing. You go to the dr in a week, but my guess is you weigh 12ish lbs. You're still my little chunk, but it seems you are growing length wise too so you're not hardly "as broad as you are tall" anymore.
Your hair still seems to be reddish and your eyes are the bluest I've ever seen-they light up when we talk to you and especially when big sister is around.
As far as personality goes you are a pretty chill little fella. You cry when you're hungry and otherwise you do not cry much at all. You do just fine in your car seat and have went on many hour and 2 hour trips without a whimper. Thanks, little buddy. You like your paci, but I do not think you will be as addicted to it as big sis.
You are a very alert little man! In fact, you are a terrific sleeper, but not so great napper. I think you don't want to miss what's going on. You take sporadic naps during the day, but never longer than an hour or hour and a half period. I look forward to you having a nap schedule little man.
Every night we wrap you up in your little swaddle blanket and lay you in your crib. You usually go straight to sleep without a peep and sleep from 10-5. You've made it to 6 a few times. After feeding you, you go back to your crib and snooze until 7. You usually wake up around then and you and momma snuggle on the sofa until Carsyn wakes up around 9. Hopefully this means you are not an early bird because those just don't fit in our family. As far as napping goes you take mini naps anywhere- on the rug in Carsyn's room, in the pack and play, or on the sofa. You used to prefer your stomach, but now you seem most content on your back.
Of course momma is still nursing you-you're a champion eater. Currently you eat at 9,1,5,9, and 5. You don't mind taking a bottle from anyone and when you do you usually drain between 4 and 5 ozs. I love nursing you little man and hope to continue for a year, just like we did with big sister.
Hank, momma, daddy, and Carsyn love you to the moon and back-thanks for making our family complete!
