What does Aren do at 2 months old?

Yesterday I posted about what keeps the bigger two boys occupied.  I'm sure you're quite curious what Aren does all day.  To be honest, the kid sleeps a lot.  He typically goes to bed around 9pm, wakes sometime between 3:30am and 5am for his first nursing and a diaper change then goes back to bed until 9am or so.  Throughout the day he plays a bit but still does a lot of sleeping.  Between all of his sleeping and nursing he's accomplished quite a bit of growing.  He had his 2 month check up with the pediatrician on Tuesday.  Here are his 2 mo. stats along with his brothers.  
Aren:  10lbs 6.5oz and is 22 in. long
Alex:   11lb 12oz and 22.25 in. long
Ajay:  11lb 14oz. and 22.5 in. long

Note both Ajay and Alex weighed more at this age then Aren did and both of them were 6lb 3oz and 6lb 5oz, respectively, at birth.

And to share pictures of all three boys around the two  month mark:



During the day his brothers talk with him and sing to him.  We find ourselves repeating "Boys, don't crowd him."  "Okay, one more kiss/hug and then you need to scoot back."  "Alex, slow and gentle movements!"
Alex is often heard "He's so cute!"  "He's so cute and pweshus!" and "I think he likes me!"  Ajay often comes up to stroke Aren's soft skin.  I love seeing the love amongst the boys.  Biju and I are afraid the bigger boys will somehow hurt Aren (quite by accident) but Aren just seems to smile when the boys approach.  (Okay, there have been a few times when Aren cries but that's only after Alex loves on him too much.)

So to sum up Aren's day:
