We had Leah in for her 2 month checkup. She is doing well. She was 12 pounds 2 ounces (88% percentile) and 23 inches long (81% percentile). She is doing well otherwise. She had the dreaded first shots. Poor baby girl -- she took a while to calm down from those and has been a little bit fussy this afternoon, but hopefully will be back to her even keeled self soon.
What else is new with Leah? She can smile now and sometime does it when she sees a face she knows. She is very active with her arms and legs always going. She can move around on the floor...I laid her in the middle of a blanket while I was doing something in the kitchen, and when I checked in on her a few minutes later she had her head off the blanket and was perpendicular to way I laid her. Another example is when she is in the pack and play -- she will end up closer to one end when she was put in the middle. She is very strong, especially with her head and neck. She doesn't mind tummy time because she can hold it up for quite a while. She also loves to look at a toy hanging above her or the fish and lights on her bouncy chair. She will even bat at a dangling toy to see what happens. Grandma Teresa calls her a studier as she seems like she is memorizing the faces she looks at. She will even furrow her eyebrows a bit as to say, I am really concentrating now. She has been sleeping very well lately and mom appreciates not getting up every night many times. Her sleep patterns are still a little unpredictable, but the longer stretches at night are awesome.
Andrew loves the summer and his chances to be outside. He likes going on bike rides, playing t-ball or golf, playing in the sandbox and shooting hoops. He loves the Toy Story movies and has his own stuffed Buzz and Woody. He will sing songs. The current favorites are "Baa Baa Black Sheep" and "Take Me Out to the Ball Game." We are talking about potty training and going on the big potty, but he doesn't have much patience for it yet.
