Wow, the difference between one month and two months is huge! James has been through so much during his second month. He met all of his great grandparents over Thanksgiving. We couldn't get James to contain his excitement.
His first snowfall on December 6. Again, his enthusiasm was hard to contain, perhaps he knew the snow would melt in just a few hours.
His first bottle, which was important since his mommy went back to work. Mommy being gone all day wasn't too big of a deal since he got to stay home with Grandma and Grandpa B for five days and McGrandma and McGrandpa for another five days. He undoubtedly loved the attention and enjoyed all the extra company by practicing his new favorite skill: smiling. He gave his first real smile while he was being fed on the morning I went back to work. It was just what I needed to get through the day!
On the evening of the 21st, he had his two month appointment. Little man weighed in at 10lbs. 7 oz.- that's a 4 pound increase from his birth weight! His weight is in the 25 percentile while his head size is in the 45 percentile. So if you think his head looks proportionally larger than his body, you are correct. : ) The appointment ended with (cue the scary music) SHOTS. He got three shots. He only cried for about 30 seconds immediately after the shots, but later that night was crying inconsolably because his legs hurt. We eventually got him fed and put to sleep. Although the night was rough, he ended up being fine the next day.
All in all- he's growing and having fun! He loves to kick at his play gym, listen to books, and watch the dogs. Kyle and I are loving every minute with this little guy!
