2 Months Old!

Axel is two months old!
Axel rolled over from belly to back once a couple weeks ago, but hasn't done it again yet.  Tummy time makes him pretty mad which I think is motivation for him to roll over.  When he is tired though, he absolutely loves to nap on his belly.
His first real smiles came at around six weeks.  He doesn't smile as much as Pearl did at this stage.  When he is in the right mood though, he will give you lots of smiles.  Axel seems to smile the most first thing in the morning and when Pearl and I mimic his noises.
Miss Pearl was an amazing sleeper by this point and slept through the night.  Axel isn't there yet, but most nights only wakes up once to eat which isn't too bad.  He sleeps pretty well at night although he makes a bunch of weird noises that keep me from sleeping sometimes.
He has started taking interest in certain objects and toys.  His favorite is one of Pearl's toys.  It's a bug that lights up and changes colors.  He loves staring at that bug and really enjoys looking at himself in the mirror as well.
Pearl has been holding Axel and singing to him a lot lately.  He just watches her and really seems to love it.  I absolutely love it too.  It's amazing to already see a relationship starting between them.
See Pearl at two months here.
