Troy's Second Month

Troy's second month was a little less hectic as we tried to get our lives together. We were alone for most of it, but towards the end we were able to go to Vegas and the Beach for a week! Troy continues to grow well. He is still a great nurser and is hungry every 2 ½ - 3 hours. His crying really peeked this month and I didn’t know what to do with him. We went to the Dr. at 6 weeks to make sure everything was fine. Troy was already 11 lbs and the Doctor said since he is growing and eating well we have nothing to worry about; he just might like to cry. I figured out that Troy likes to sleep after being awake for an hour and a half, no longer! He also likes to be held outwards with a little pressure on his tummy. After learning this, his crying fits decreased. He wakes him self up many times during a nap and has a hard time falling back asleep. Night time is a gamble, I never knew what I was gonna get. Sometimes he slept 5 hours and some nights he woke up every two. I think this was our month with the least amount of sleep! Troy started liking to lay on the floor and smile as you talk to him, but of course don’t leave him for too long. Even with the crying and lack of sleep he is still a doll and we love him more everyday.

Since we got back from our beach vacation I decided to try a swaddle sack for Troy. He loves it and has taken really good naps for the past two days and slept well at night. Why I didn't try this sooner is beyond me!

Brighton loves little Troy. He likes to kiss him and hold his hand. He worries about him when he is crying and always wants to know where he is. I love their brotherly love!

I think you need to give a shout out to your sister-in-law for giving you the idea to use the swaddle sack:)! I am so glad that it is working for you guys. I hope we can see more of that cute little baby this summer I just want to kiss those cute cheeks.
