Today is Wyatt's 2 month birthday! He's grown and changed so much in the past month. I weighed him a few days ago and he was 11lbs 11oz. Holy moly! The last two nights he has actually slept from 11pm until 6am. I'm hoping this is a new pattern for him and not just a brief phase! Because of this, he has skipped his middle of the night feed. I've compensated by increasing his bottles to 5 oz and feeding 6 times a day instead of 7. So far it's working well. I'm able to pump more than he eats in a day, which is great. I'm hoping I'll be able to maintain my supply on fewer pumps and still keep up with him. That boy can eat!
In terms of development, Wyatt is doing really well. Just this week his occasional smiles have become much more common. It's so exciting to see him respond to us! I admit that a few weeks ago I was afraid he was either a sociopath or didn't like me since he wouldn't smile back at me. I am a freak of nature, I know. Wyatt's also gaining better neck control, and I try to do tummy time with him once or twice a day. Sometimes he's into it and other times not so much.
Next week Wyatt will have his 2 month appointment with his new doctor. I'm anxious to see what his height and weight are there. But I'm nervous about his shots. I hope he handles them okay and doesn't have a total meltdown (or me for that matter).
