2 months old!

My little Carson David turned 2 months old last week on the 28th. He's growing up so fast! He had a good checkup at the doctor, he said he is growing well, and getting very strong. We also had our first experience with shots, which was not so fun. Carson was a trooper and cried while they gave him the shots, but stopped and slept right after. Later at daycare, when Sheena changed his diaper he got fussy and cried for most of the rest of the day, I think his little legs were sore. He alternated between crying and sleeping the rest of the night, it's so hard to watch your child hurt. And the info they give you nowadays says not to give your baby Tylenol unless their fever is over 100, because Tylenol can make the immunizations less effective. We had a hard night, but once he fell asleep, he did good and only woke up once to eat.
At 2 months old, Carson can/is:
Weighs 12 lbs, 13 oz. and was 23 1/2 inches long
--Eating 5 oz. every 2-4 hours during the day, and usually sleeping 8 or 9 until 4 or 5, though sometimes he wakes up at 3 to eat.
--Sleeping through the night often! The first night was June 18.
--Rolling over from tummy to back. He's done this 3 or 4 times, the first time was June 23 on his 8 week birthday!
--Wearing size 1 or 1-2 diapers
--Wearing 0-3 bottoms, and mostly 3 month tops, although some 0-3 and some 3-6 fit him.
--Sleeps in his crib swaddled with his arms out
--Cooing, gurgling, and doing lots of talking
--Smiling and laughing at things and people
--Going longer stretches between eating, yay!
--Loves his play mat, he loves to look at the baby in the mirror
--Loves his paci
--Much more alert, spends hours awake during the day
--Is a good napper
--Loves bath time.
--Occasionally sucking his thumb when he can find it. :)
