2 Months with Major


Major is just the most easy going little guy.  Shepherd will literally lay on top of him (before I run back in the room yelling for him to get off!), he will steal his paci right out of his mouth, he will poke him in the eye (saying "eyes eyes") and Major just lays there happy as a clam.  We think he likes getting attention from his big brother.  
Major sleeps...a lot.  I guess its still normal for babies to sleep a lot at this age?  I can't remember how Shep was.  He takes 2-3 hour (sometimes longer) naps, wakes up for a little bit to get his diaper changed and nurse, then usually goes back to sleep pretty quickly.  
At night, he has been getting fussy right around 8, which is the most hectic time at our house.  We are trying to get Shep to eat dinner and his bath and to bed, and I'm usually trying to cook mine and Joey's dinner while Joey does bath time.  (I know we eat dinner late!)  Our routine right now is Major usually calms down and takes a long nap at night, while Joey and I relax and watch TV.  When we are ready to go to bed (usually around 11:30) I wake Major up to change his diaper and nurse again before putting him back down.  Sometimes he will barely wake up enough to nurse on one side before falling back asleep.  He is still being swaddled every night and sleeping in our room.  So right now he is sleeping about 11:30-7:30/8ish.  When he wakes up in the morning I change his diaper and nurse him and he immediately goes back down to sleep for another 1-2 hours.  Which is awesome!! But I'm not going to get too excited because Shepherd was an awesome sleeper at this age too, until about 4/5 months when he decided to stop sleeping ever and I became a ZOMBIE.  
Major is my little chunk!  Its not that he's really that big (he is 25% for height/weight/head circumference), its just that I'm used to Shepherd, who is my tiny baby.
He had his 2 month shots today.  Everyone always complains about their baby getting shots, but I like it.  I want him to be vaccinated against everything, even though it is sad to see him cry.  It makes me feel better knowing that now he is vaccinated.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the past month:
