2-1/2 months today!
So, it's been another month with this chunky monkey and he is doing so well! We are so proud of him. He had his two month appointment last week and weighed in at a whopping 13 pounds, 8-1/2 ounces and is almost 25 inches long! He is in the 90th percentile for weight and the 97th percentile for height. Apparently he gets his weight from this mother and his height from his father :). He also got 5 vaccination shots which weren't so fun, but he was a real trooper. The doc gave him another clean bill of health which we are, again, so grateful for.
He is smiling up a storm these days and we act like we just won the lottery every time we see it. It is awesome. He is also kicking like crazy. We've kind of made a little game out of it. He gets real focused and so intense and pushes his legs (one at a time, as if he was walking) against my hands. It is hilarious. He is so serious about it. He's also making all kinds of new noises. Just when we think he's about to cry or fuss, it turns out he's just talking and has discovered a new "word". It's so fun to encourage the noises and have conversations with him.
I'm happy to report he is sleeping pretty well. The past three nights he's slept at least 7-1/2 hours straight. It's close enough to 8 hours that we're considering it "sleeping through the night". It sure feels like we're getting more sleep, which is so nice.
We had a great visit from 4 of my college girlfriends over Memorial Day weekend. It was so great to see everyone and introduce them all to J. He made a good friend that weekend since my friend Stacy brought her little boy, Reid, who is only 5 days older than J. It was so fun for the girls to get to know the new men in our lives.
Well, J and I are about to run out for a bit, so I should get going. 'Till next time...
Love to all,
M, T & J
