Tyler. {2 months}

I know. I KNOW. Tyler is almost 3 months so this is a little late. But, you know. Second child problems. Or more accurately, what happens when mom is sick most of the month. Better late than never! {And I'm trying really hard to write this as I would have 4 weeks much has changed!}

At two months, Tyler is still such a sweetheart! We've settled into a routine of eat, wake, sleep and its great. He is great at taking naps on the go and I can't complain about crib naps. And night sleep! Oh night sleep. I always say if we have night sleep, we can never complain. Tyler is going anywhere from 6-9 hours at night between feedings and its wonderful.
  This month was mostly about just settling in. The holiday craziness passed and we were able to figured out what our routine is. And we love it! Most days we get out of the house in the morning and Tyler naps on the go. We're home by lunch and Tyler gets some solo play time while Caleb naps and usually their afternoon naps overlap a bit, which is a win for everyone!
  I also started pumping (finally!) and Tyler had his first bottles. I was able to go on a day date with my sister and spent a full 8-9 hours out of the house, sans baby. It was so strange and wonderful! I so love being home with my boys, but it always surprises me just how great it feels to get out and be on my own for a bit.
  And he's growing! But so slowly. Our little guy is a real peanut, hence his newest nickname. I have a sneaking suspicion that the nurse wrote his length down wrong, but we're going with it and will see when he goes back in April. He's becoming too long for some newborn sleepers, so we're going to go ahead and just pack them all away and move into 0-3 and 3 month. We're also on the last of our newborn diapers, so its onto size 1!
  And Caleb? Still loves his brother! He started 'holding' him this month and gets the proudest look on his face when we let him.
