Thoughts on Colin at Two Months
My newborn who did nothing but eat and sleep all day is morphing into a busy little guy. He still eats and sleeps a lot, but he has added a few new tricks to his repertoire.
He Talks. Colin has a lot on his mind. Mostly he says "ah goo." But sometimes he mixes it up and says, "coo coo." He uses his voice to get my attention -- which is good because he has some stiff competition from his brother and sister when it comes to commandeering attention.
He Grows . . . and Grows . . . and Grows. My kids begin their lives near the top of the growth charts and quickly move into that ">95 percentile" category. Colin was 9 lbs. 1 oz. at birth (my smallest actually) and he grew out of his 0-3 months clothes at six weeks. At nearly ten weeks of age, his 3-6 month stuff is starting to look snug. We have a check up on Thursday for an official weigh in but I am guessing that he is hovering around 13 and a half pounds or so.
He Smiles. He has a few different versions. Sometimes he does a subtle curl of the lip, as if to say, 'Oh, hey there Mom." But more often Colin flashes an exuberant, gummy grin that screams, "LIFE IS GOOD!"
