Maddox {Month 2}

Maddox is TWO MONTHS OLD!!!

Our sweet boy is growing like crazy. He turned two months old on August 6th. We had his well check and here's an update. 

Weight: 12 pounds, 11 ounces (65%); It took Maddox 2 weeks to get back to birth weight (7 pounds, 10 ounces) so essentially, he gained 5 pounds in 7 weeks. Big guy!

Height: 24 inches That's TWO FEET TALL!! :) (85%)

Head Size: 15 3/4" (75%)

Nicknames: Maddox-Man, Brother, Bugga Bugs, Baby Ma-Miks (by Mason), Bruh Bruh, Bug, Love-Buggy (and on and on and on)

Eating: During the day, Maddox eats every 3 hours. He's eating 5-6 ounces with each bottle. At night, he eats at 9:00p.m. and then he sleeps until 6:00a.m. He's getting 5 breastmilk bottles and 1 formula bottle. Everything is going well with him eating.


Sleeping: Maddox wakes each morning around 6:00a.m. give or take a few minutes. He is awake for about 1.5 hours and then back to sleep until 9:00a.m. From there, he is sleeping 1.5 hours out of every 3 hour period. And like I said above, he sleeps from about 9:30p.m. to 6:00a.m. each night. He's slowly stretching his day time awake time so his night time sleep time will be extending along with that. His first 8 hour stretch of sleep was July 18th.


Diapers: Gah, this kid is up to size 2 diapers now! ah! We are currently using loves because they were the best deal when I stocked up but we will likely move to Target brand later on. We hope to start cloth diapers in the next 1-2 weeks.

Clothes: Maddox is wearing some 0-3 month clothes still and he is wearing 3 months and even a few (in my opinion, poorly sized) 3-6 and 6 month clothes.

Social: Lots of smiling going on and when we get close to him, he really focuses in and smiles at us. It's THE. BEST.
It really feels like he is so close to laughing especially when we tickle him!
He met his PopPop and Mammy (Grammy but Mason calls her Mammy) right at the end of the month.

New/fun things from this month: 
Rolled over from belly to back at 6 weeks, 1 day. (7/19)
new but not fun: first cold at 7 weeks
hair is growing in on top. He hasn't lost much yet so I'm curious to see if he will.
Also fun! He hasn't had any baby acne. We shall see if he gets that or if he keeps that sweet skin without any blemishes for now! :)
He is little houdini from time to time in his swaddle and get his arm out. So cute.

Hmm, can't think of anything. 

Doing well. I'm pumping full time during the day and I'm glad it's going so well. I love SNUGGLES with my bud! Headed back to work when Maddox was between 7-8 weeks.


Usually takes the 6:00 a.m. bottle and gets lots of extra snuggles and fun with Maddox in the morning. He is also getting to be Super Dad a couple of times a week now because I'm easing back into work. 

These two are awesome together! Mason is helping even more this month and we have had less and less "issues" so that's been great!


Comparison Pictures:

One Month:

Two Months: 

Mason vs. Maddox (2 Months)   
Same blue eyes for sure!! 
same nose?
Compare to Mason: Mason's 2 month well visit showed just what a big guy he is! He was up to 12 pounds, 3 ounces (60th percentile), 22.75 inches long (40th percentile) and 15.25 inch head circumference. They are similar in head size and weight but Maddox looks like he might be taller than Mason. Can't wait to see!



And just a few more pictures!
