Lincoln 2 Months

Our little president is now 2 months!  At his two month appointment he weighed 12 lbs 15 oz, measured 23.5 inches long, and was diagnosed with baby eczema.

Lincoln is such a good eater.  At this point he is taking 6 ounces every 4 hours during the day and, if we get lucky, nothing at night!  Mr. Lincoln slept through the night for the first time at 7 weeks.  Unfortunately, he's not consistently sleeping through the night, but more like every fourth night.  I'll take what I can get!

During month two the boys have definitely become more interested in each other.  Given loves his little brother and announces his arrival at daycare every afternoon during pick-up.  He also loves to sing to him, give him his pacifier, and pat his head.  In turn, Lincoln loves the attention and is always smiling at Given.  Lincoln also follows Given with his eyes whenever he is in the room.  I hope they grow up being besties!  Check out the cute videos here and here.

Lincoln was baptized on March 8th at St. Vincent de Paul by Father Ken.  He wore the same baptismal gown that his Grandma Eoff wore, that I wore, that Given wore, and many of his Strube kin wore!  That gown is very special to us.

Also during month two, Mr. Given was potty trained.  He is doing such a good job and we are very proud of Big Brother!

I can't wait to see what is in store for month 3!
