The Last Few

Ben was 8 weeks on Friday.

Avery stayed home so Mimi could spend some time with her.  We started the day off with a walk.  She likes to take a turn pushing. Her turn lasts about five steps.

The weather has been much nicer lately (not over 100).  And yes, we put clothes on Avery.  She takes them off.
Talking to the horses

Ben fell asleep during tummy time.

Avery brought him a companion.

Ben is still a great night time sleeper.  He's been sleeping about 12 hours a night, waking up once to eat around 4 or 5.  Dare I say, he sleeps better at night than Avery did.  If I recall correctly, it was hard to get her to go back to sleep when she woke up.  Daytime is still a mixed bag.  Some days he's happy, some days he's super cranky.  His crankiness doesn't seem to stem from any sort of stomach issues or anything, so far as I can tell.  I think he just gets tired yet fights sleep.  I've been getting a decent nap out of him in the morning, but then maybe just cat naps throughout the day.  He seems to get a good amount of sleep overall (in a 24 hour period) but maybe he needs more (hence the crankiness).  He goes to the doctor on Wednesday for his 2 month checkup.  I can't wait to see what he weighs.  He's definitely filling out.
