Peanut Update - 2 months

15 pounds 12 ounces and 24 ½ inches long.  He also has a 15 ¾ head circumference.  He is off the charts for length and weight so we don’t have any percentiles to share other than FAT!  He has gained about 6 pounds in 2 months!

Amazingly enough these are the exact same stats that Little Man had at his 2 month appointment.  Other than that we don’t have anything to report.  The doctor said that he looks great and she has no concerns.  He took his shots like a champ and fell asleep (go figure) within a few minutes after getting them.  Oh, he did pee on her and spit up on her, so we were batting 100 on the bodily fluid count.

Peanut has started to come out of his shell, so to speak.  (sorry for the awful pun).  He coos and makes sweet sounds when he isn’t screaming at me.  His best cry is his tired cry. It is a staccato goat mew, like Mwa mwa and if I lay him down right after hearing that cry he sighs, sucks on his pacifier and goes to sleep.  He is sleeping mostly through the night now in 6-9 hour stretches and likes to be held close to our body.  His favorite thing is to be in the sling.  It holds him nice and close to my body and it takes him about 2 seconds to fall asleep in it, usually clutching my shirt to make sure I don’t leave him.  He definitely has a strong personality and knows what he wants (usually sleep) when he wants it.  He makes it known when he is bored and would like a change of scenery but calms down easily and quickly when you meet his needs.  I would say that he is a low needs baby as long as you meet those needs quickly! 

I will post pictures of his fatness later today.  We might even get to have a count the rolls contest!!
