Benjamin is 2 Months!

Another month has flown by and wowza this boy is growing fast!!

Benjamin moved into size 2 diapers around seven weeks and 6 month size clothes shortly thereafter. That onesie he's wearing for these pictures? 9 month size. He has his official 2 month appointment on Monday, but I'm guessing he will be close to 15 pounds at his weigh-in. He's a chunk! 

He still will not take a pacifier, but we keep trying. He will take it and like it maybe one out of ten times we try. And more concerning is that he seems to have similar feelings about bottles. I go back to work part-time next week though so it will very soon not be optional. Prayers for daddy as he helps him learn this important skill. It would be such a shame for him to lose all of that delightful chub before he reaches his full round potential!

Benjamin is a big mama's boy. He has such a sweet personality for me but no one else. He is quite feisty. When he decides he's unhappy he goes from sweet cooing to all out wailing in a matter of seconds. There's not much in between for him. 

Things he loves:
  • Mommy
  • Boobies
  • Getting his diaper changed
  • His ribbon mobile
  • Snuggling with mom in the Ergo
  • Baths
Things he hates:
  • Bottles
  • Pacifiers
  • Nursing under a cover
  • Riding in the car
  • Getting out of the bath

He's starting to smile and "talk" more and more. We've even heard a few giggles.

His eyelashes keep growing. Now they are longer than mine! His eye color is still a question mark. His eyes are lighter than brown-eyed Andrew's were at two months but darker than blue-eyed Jackson's were. Maybe he will end up with hazel eyes like his mama?

Just this week he has started to bat at the toys on his baby gym. 

He loves his baths but lately I've spent a lot of the time just trying to get him to stay seated in his little tub. He's constantly trying to stand on those strong legs.

He's a happy baby in the Ergo. If he's fighting sleep, I'll snuggle him in, make a few laps around the house and he is out. Thank goodness for the Ergo.

As he's grown sturdier he enjoys the exuberant affection of his big brothers more and more!

And he's now taken his place at the kitchen table during dinner!

He seems to be enjoying it!

All three of my boys at 2 months. Benjamin still favors Jackson a bit more but he really has his own look!

Happy two months sweet boy!
