2 months old!

Little Axl Joe Steven Fowler turned 2 months old yesterday! He has really started talking to us and smiling a lot more often! I love it! His sounds include /agoo/ /i/ and /oh/ and they are absolutely precious to hear. He talks to daddy and SB the most! He's been a little frustrated with mommy because I had to stop nursing him to switch my blood pressure medicine. Bless his little heart! He has been such a trooper. He had to stop nursing cold turkey and did a great job with the switch. Anyway, he's a growing healthy little two month old and I'm one very thankful mommy!

Height: 22 1/2 inches (40th percentile)
Weight: 11 lbs. 5 oz (40th percentile)
Food: breastmilk until 7 1/2 weeks and now Infamil newborn formula (He eats about 4 ounces every 3 hours, around 24 ounces a day)
Sleep: We are getting better at the eat/wake/sleep pattern but not totally there yet. He usually naps about an hour and a 1/2 after he eats. He sleeps pretty good at night. He usually goes to sleep around 8 or 9 at night and then wakes up one time to eat around 3 a.m. He usually starts his day around 7:15 or so. I'm ready for him to sleep all the way through the night but guess he isn't quite ready because he sucks his bottle down at 3 a.m.! Guess I can't complain, he's going 7 hours at night without needing to eat. :)
Clothes: He has outgrown his newborn stuff (tear) and is wearing 0-3 month and 3 month stuff. He still wears newborn shoes.
Favorites: Axl loves to just lay on big sister's bed and look around! He also loves it when daddy makes smacking sounds in his ear. He always tries to kiss Jared when he does this! I admit, I'm a little jealous of his love for daddy, but thankful all the same!

Big Sissy (as she wants to be called) loves her baby brother!
