P-man is 2 months old TODAY! I'm currently sitting in my pj's enjoying an iced coffee while the little man sleeps in his swing, so that's obviously quite a change from what I was doing this time 2 months ago HA! Month 2 has been really fun since Preston is much more alert and aware of everything around him. His little personality is coming out and he's smiling up a storm, cooing and talking and has crazy head and neck control! Might be time to break out the Bumbo chair!
He also is still sleeping like a champ (fingers crossed I didn't just jinx us!). He takes several naps a day, many of which are 2 hours long. He goes down for the night between 7:00 and 8:00pm and normally will give us his longest stretch of sleep then, typically going at least 7 hours and as long as 9 hours! His middle of the night feeding is quick and then he normally goes back down for another 4-5 hours and wakes up in the morning anywhere from 6:30 to 7:30am. We are all feeling very rested!

We are settling into a "routine" and it's getting easier to figure this little dude out. He eats six 5oz. bottles a day, for a total of THIRTY FREAKING OUNCES OF FORMULA A DAY. Yes, that's what a 5-6 month old should be eating. The pedi isn't concerned by his large appetite since he's growing normally so we're going with it! He's still pretty skinny, but SUPER long so we're thinking he just has a high metabolism like his dad.
He loves his play mat toys (especially Larry the Lion) and the farm animals on his bouncy chair (especially the corn?? He seriously can't stop staring at the plastic corn - it's bizarre but hilarious). His other new trick is putting his fist in his mouth. We're still waiting for him to find his feet. He is really strong and can hold his head up quite well.
Basically, we are totally in love with this amazing little boy! I can't wait to see what the next month holds. And for visual proof that little man is growing like a weed, here are his 1 and 2 month chair pictures side by side! Boggles my mind how much he's changed!
