Month two has brought us a happy baby. Jack is full of smiles, coos and happy baby sounds. It’s the greatest thing in the world to have a happy baby! He’s so much more interactive now and has developed quite a personality. He’s also developed quite a temper about his food. When he’s ready to eat, you better feed him right then. And don’t even think about taking the bottle away, even just for a minute. He starts breathing fast, then the screaming begins.
He had his two-month check up last week. He weighs 10 lb, 2 oz, and was 22 inches long. He’s in about the 10th percentile, which means that 10% of babies his age are smaller than him, and 90% are bigger. It took me a while to figure out the percentile thing- math has never been my strong suit! He’s growing though, and catching up, which is great since he arrived 4 weeks early. He was given 4 vaccinations- 1 liquid, and 3 shots. He was a brave little guy during the shots, but it was tough on mom and dad to hold him down for that. He had a fever for a few days afterwards- just one of the side effects, but otherwise, he survived his first round like a little tough guy.
We’re having so much fun with him, and think he’s a pretty awesome baby!
