Two Months

I thought I had posted Ryland's two-month-old pictures a couple of weeks ago, but apparently that post did not save to the web, and I haven't had time to re-post since then, so...

Sunday, March 5, 2010 Ryland turned two months old.  He has grown quite a bit in the last month (we have his doctor's appointment next week, and will have an update on measurements then).  His face looks older, and his body has a little more baby fat on it, but he still seems so little.  He doesn't like laying on his tummy unless he's taking a nap, and he holds his head up pretty well when he's held upright.  He still likes to lay in his vibrating rocking chair, but his activity gym play mat is becoming a favorite as he's learning that kicking his feet makes the toys rattle (that, and he loves looking at himself in the mirror above).   He'll sometimes swing for a while if he's sleepy, but not as often as he used to.  Once or twice a week he'll sleep for a five-hour stretch overnight, but the rest of the time he wakes up every two-and-a-half to three hours.  His daytime naps are sporadic, depending on whether we are home or out.  He sleeps well in his car seat in the car or in the stroller, as long as it is moving, and he sleeps in the front carrier on my chest, too.  Here are some pictures of Ryland at two months old:
