He had his well-baby visit this past Friday. He weighed in at 14lbs. 6oz. (88th percentile) and was 24 inches long (87th percentile).
- This little guy is starting to smile a lot these days. Jeff even got him to laugh for the first time the other day (almost 9 weeks old).
- He moves his mouth a lot, as if trying to say something.
- He has started to track objects.
- He holds his head up pretty well. He does tummy time but not as frequent as the other two because I'm afraid he'll get hurt, so he hasn't learned to roll over yet.
- He loves to sleep on his stomach (I will sometimes let him sleep on his belly for naps).
- He LOVES music (fits right in with the fam). He will study the person that's singing to him.
- He is a pretty calm baby. He gets a little fussy sometimes if he's hungry and I can't get to him right away or if he's uncomfortable. But most of the time, even when he's hungry, he just makes little grunty noises and I know he's ready to eat. He's had a few fussy days in his lifetime, but most days, he seems pretty happy.
- He likes to be held and is happy to be in my arms whenever he can be.
- He takes a pretty good afternoon nap and is starting to take good morning naps, too.
- He sleeps about 4-5 hours at night, a lot of nights (unless he's going through a growth spurt or something).
- He's a fun little guy and we're so happy to have him a part of our family. :)
At his two month check-up, the doctor said he looked great. :) I told him that both Caleb and Adelaide had been rolling over by now, but he said that he should be rolling over by 16 weeks- so we have some time. I also told him that this was my calm baby. He looked at me empathetically, smiled and said, "You deserve a calm baby'. (As the older two are running around in the room licking each others' lollipops). :)
Here are some photos from the last month:

|Though he had smiled several times before this- this was the first time that he kept smiling as I kept interacting with him. It was sooo super cute! :) -April, 8, 2015 (just about 8 weeks)|
