2 Month Vital Stats

So we had our 2 month check-up the day before yesterday - our boy is a whopping 11 lbs 10 oz and 24 and a half inches long. That’s 50th percentile on weight and 95th on length, or height, however you like to call it. We are very proud.

The tougher part of the visit involved his vaccinations. During the first one our boy was incredibly brave, not a whimper, but after the second and third all hell broke loose and he was not a happy camper. He was soothed soon enough, but it was not a fun experience for any of us. I remember feeling really angry after it, don’t know why really. I think someone hurting your child - no matter for what good reason - just sets you off on a very primal level. That night I was pretty stessed, fearing a grouchy night and more tears. But with a wee bit of infant tylenol he sailed through like a trooper. My poor wee brave lamb. Heaven help us when he has to go to the dentist, that will be Papa’s job I think.

But - he is doing really well. He is smiling more and more, slowly getting the hang of it. I saw a clip on Oprah yesterday that showed a two month old saying hello. So now of course I am driving my poor boy demented cooing “hello’ at him every waking moment.

We’re still doing the exercises to straighten his head some more, it’s still a bit tilted - every waking moment he is supposed to play on his tummy - of course he LOVES that - I wish!

Week after next I go back to work - am looking forward to it - quote me somebody - but it’s making me realise I only have two weeks to finish all those household tasks - sorting and organising that I optimistically and foolishly thought I’d get accomplished during this time. Crazy.

Am dog-tired today. Last night we tried to go without the swaddle, not one of my brightest ideas. He’s is growing out of everything so quickly though it really doesn’t fit him anymore. So we tried the sleepsuit, he just didn’t sleep as long. So back to swaddling tonight! Zzzzzzzz.

Oliver visits Mamma and Papa’s work today. Big trip!

Deer Isle, Maine

If I’d managed to hook up the camera to Steven’s computer successfully, I could show you the wonderful view I now sit before. As it is, I’ll do my best to describe it to you.

I’m sitting on the back porch of Steven’s family’s farm - Edgewood Farm. The farm sits upon a hill looking down on a tree lined view over the bay. I’m not sure which bay, but it’s as blue as the sky today, with the occasional sail boat drifing by. It’s the most gorgeous view you can possibly imagine.

Oliver is asleep - he’s enjoyed his first visit to Maine I think, although has been somewhat overwhelmed I think by all the new sights, smells and sounds. Lots of activity and new sensations leave him exhausted by the end of the day - as it does me and Steven. But it has all been worth it, I can’t think of any place I’d rather be. The sun is shining and the only sound we can hear is the gentle breeze rustling through the tree tops.
