2 Months Old

Lawson turned two months old yesterday. I know they say it goes by fast, but man I didn't realize it would be this fast! In honor of turning 2 months, Lawson slept through the night for the third time! 10pm-6am Woo-hoo! He actually did wake up at 4:30 but instead of nursing him I decided to try a pacifier and it worked, he went right back to sleep. Other new things in his life are chubby cheeks and chunky thighs, and I love both. He is holding his head up pretty good and smiling all the time. His smile makes this momma melt!

On Monday he had his two month well check along with his first round of vaccinations. The shots weren't bad at all, but the rest of the day was very hard. He felt terrible, and due to the recall of Infant Tylenol, I couldn't find anything for his pain. I went to four different stores until I finally found an off brand of Motrin for 6 months and up. Once we gave him some of that, he was back to our sweet baby boy. Thank goodness! It just broke my heart to see him in so much pain. Here is a picture of him with his band-aids.

Sleeping Through the Night

The only part about Lawson being a newborn that I have wished would change and hurry up and get here is him sleeping through the night. Well.....last night he slept from 10:30 until 5:30 this morning. He is 4 weeks and 6 days and slept for 7 hours straight!! I started waking up at 2:30 a.m. and I am pretty sure I checked on him every hour until he finally woke up. It is crazy because as much as I wanted the sleep, I sure did miss our time in the middle of the night.

I know this may not happen again for a while, but at least I know that it is possible!
