Baby's name: John Anthony
Birthdate: 12.19.12
Weight currently: 13 lbs 5 oz! He gained almost 4 lbs in a month!
Length currently: 22"
Eye color (has it changed since birth): Most days they're a lighter blue then the slate blue he was born with. Some days they almost look brownish so I am thinking they'll lighten like DH's or go hazel like DDs.
Clothing size: Still fits some 0-3 but mostly 3 months
Where is baby sleeping: co-sleeper in our room
How many naps does she/he have a day: One long nap and maybe two others?
What new milestones (rolling over, holding head up) has baby accomplished? Cooing a ton now. Holding his head up for a minute or two during tummy time (when he actually lifts his head and isn't eating his hand).
Will you give your baby a pillow to sleep with? What age? Eventually yes. Didn't do it with DD until she was two and in a toddler bed. She was never interested before that.
Have you thought about when you will start solid foods? 6 months though if it got to a point his pediatrican recommended to start slightly earlier, I might go for it.

Here he is from the other day before going to visit some family.

Finally my baby is *officially* 2 months old.
Baby's name: Philip
Birthdate: 12/25/12
Weight currently: 11lb 4oz
Length currently: 22''
Eye color (has it changed since birth): His eyes are a murky grey, slate color. I think they've always been this color.
Clothing size: 3mths but today, he's wearing a 6mth outfit! It could be a little shrunken. Wink
Where is baby sleeping: Umm.... in my bed. Heh heh. With his congestion and issues, he just sleeps better that way. He sleeps best in the rocking chair.
How many naps does she/he have a day: About 3 long naps.
What new milestones (rolling over, holding head up) has baby accomplished? Rolling over, great neck control, starting to grab at things.
Will you give your baby a pillow to sleep with? What age? I think Philip would sleep great with a pillow, but I don't know what is a good age. :/ He def needs to be propped up to sleep and elevating his mattress isn't enough.
Have you thought about when you will start solid foods? No! I might hold off a while with Philip since he has such horrible sensitivities already. Hopefully dairy is his only issue.
