Brayden-2 months

Brayden is growing like a weed. We had his 2 month check up back on the 16th and he was already up to 13 lbs! He was in the 80-90%. The doctor joked that he might break the scale. haha. So different from Kaitlyn who was either too small to even make the charts, or usually hovered around the 3% mark. He is still a wonderful baby and I couldn't ask for a better baby. He rarely cries and he can be consoled pretty easily. He is still not sleeping through the night and I don't forsee it starting any time soon b/c this boy likes to eat too much! Currently he eats about 4.5-5 oz every 3 hours. We put him to bed around 11:00ish and he wakes once around 3:30ish to eat and then goes back to sleep until 7:30-8:00. So not too bad. We are in the process of trying to push the bedtime earlier though b/c we are pretty worn out. I just don't want him waking up too early in the morning.
It has also been sweet to see how Kaitlyn interacts with him. She really does love him so much. Every morning if he is not up yet she asks where "baby boy" is. The other day we went on a walk to the park and Kaitlyn was fighting me to put her coat back on before we walked back home. Brayden's stroller started rolling away. VERY slowly...I wasn't worried, but I told Kaitlyn "Hurry Brayden is rolling away!" She screamed and ran after him crying and grabbed onto the handle and wouldn't let go! It was so sweet to see her trying to save him. She gives him kisses all the time and loves to help out with him.
We also had Brayden's Baby Blessing at church this past Sunday. All of Justin's family came into town for it, so that was nice. On Justin's side of the family there are now 3 babies all within 2 months of each other. Isaiah is two months older than Brayden and Ellie who are only 2 days apart. They will have so much fun playing together when they are older!

My Beautiful Baby Boy!
