2 Months Old Already

Monday Augie turned eight weeks old. Technically Friday he was 2 months (if you are going by the date...). He's turning into such a little man.

We are trying this week to have him sleep in the pack and play. For the past three weeks I have been sleeping propped up on the couch or chair with him sleeping on my chest. The poor little guy is very gassy and grunts a lot if he's not slightly elevated. Sleeping with him upright allowed everyone in the house to get more sound sleep. 

 He also likes the warmth of being cozy and snuggling (which I have to say I love too). I've tried to adjust my diet to see if that helps with his gas (no dairy...bye, bye cheese and greek yogurt..., no broccoli/cauliflower, one cup of coffee in the morning, limited citrus fruits, etc). It seems to help a little. Each night we are making pr…
