Louis ~ 2 Months

Update: Louis had his 2 month checkup at exactly 10 weeks old, he is in the 98th percentile for everything! He weighs 15 lbs 2 oz, and is 24 1/2 inches with a 41 1/2 cm head! Big boy!

Louis is 2 months old today! Looking at these photos side by side really makes me realize how much he is growing! I am so excited to see the end result at 1 year old with this monthly series of snapshots! He has his 2 month Dr. visit next week (even though he will already be 10 weeks old) and I can't wait to see how big he is as far as the growth percentile, I am pretty sure he is bigger than Emerick was! I will update this post with his growth stats next week.

He has started sleeping 5-6 hour stretches at night just in the past few nights. During the day he eats every 2-4 hours. He loves to nurse, even if he isn't hungry, and he is very smiley (most of the time!) He is still a very moody little guy. He naps and sleeps at night in his car seat, the only place he will sleep for long stretches! Hopefully he learns to love his crib as much as the car seat, because he will only fit into it for so long. He will take short naps when he falls asleep playing in his bouncy chair.

Mr. Bones - Year 4

I have always had a little obsession with what I call "Mr. Bones" jammies. Since before I had kids of my own, James and I bought them for our niece and nephew. Since Emerick was a newborn he has had a set of Mr. Bones jammies every Fall! Louis has his own set (in addition to the one Emerick wore as a newborn) because I found one with candy in the belly - who can resist?!

I never did get around to getting a snapshot of the boys together in their Mr. Bones jammies in October, so I decided to squeeze Louis back into the 0-3 month size sleeper (which by the way was already packed by up because he has outgrown that size and is huge!) and get a photo. And so, I took this photo.

 Emerick quickly lost interest or so I thought, and got up off of the couch...So I took a couple of Lou by himself.

Emerick came back over, with his little toy CARS camera in hand, and started taking his own photos of his little brother!

Big Boy Bath

I love bath tub baby pics! Here is Louis taking his second bath in the big tub like a big boy. He loves it!

Day 5

My sweet friend and fellow photographer Lindsay took Louis' newborn photos for me when he was just 5 days old. Here is a little peak into the session. It was a lot of fun to not only hang out with Lindsay during the shoot, but to work together a little bit. It sure makes it easier to accomplish certain poses with 4 photographer hands ;-)

Louis ~ 6 weeks

My little Louie is not so little anymore! He has really started to get chunky just this past week. He weighs about 14 pounds and has already moved into 3-6 month size clothes & size 1 diapers that are quickly getting snug on him as well. I wasn't prepared to pack up the newborn stuff so quick! He smiles a lot and tries to coo, but doesn't always get his "words" out. He is super moody, and can be smiling and cooing away 1 minute and the next screaming his heart out, he's too funny. He goes to the Dr. for his 2 month checkup at this end of this month.

Louis' First Bath

We didn't give Louis his first real bath in his baby tub until he was a month old! I had just been giving him baths in the sink (never got a photo of that). He really loves his baby tub though, much more than the sink! He let us know when the water got too cold and he was done...
