Two months old

Micah turned two months old on March 11th.  Time sure flies!  At his two-month appointment, he weighed 12 pounds 5 ounces, and he was 23 inches long (three ounces more than Levi was at this age, but an inch shorter).  Obviously, he is a good eater.  He's a pretty good sleeper, too.  At eight weeks of age, we moved him from the bassinet in our room to the crib in the nursery.  Right at two months, he had two nights in a row with nine hours of sleep.  For the next week, he woke up once a night, but he has started sleeping through the night again.  What a blessing for his tired parents!  The only trade-off to having a baby who sleeps through the night, though, is that he doesn't feel the need to sleep much during the day.  It makes it hard to get things done around the house.  Micah's personality is starting to come out a bit more.  He loves to have people talk and sing to him.
Levi is starting to get used to being an older brother, too.  At the very beginning, Levi was kind of in shock.  You could tell he was wondering when this baby was going to go away.  (Sorry, buddy!  He's here for good!)  Next, he showed a lot of curiosity.  He wanted to know what would happen if he hit the baby or poked his face.  (Time-out in the laundry room.)  Next he showed lots of love.  He wants to pet Micah's head and give him kisses.  (I have to protect Micah from excessive kissing.)  Now he is even being reasonably helpful!  He can put Micah's pacifier back in his mouth and help entertain him while I change his diaper.  These boys are on the road to becoming friends!
