Two Months

I can't believe that Samuel is already two months old. Where has the time gone? I go back to work in just over a week. I am going to miss him like crazy but know that Chris will do a great job with him during the day. He is still not a great sleeper. He may go 4 hours at night but not more. After talking to the doctor today, I am going to try just giving him his pacifier the next few nights to see if we can drop the middle of the night bottle (he is only taking 2 oz and the doctor thinks he might not even be hungry but just used to waking and eating). I would really like to get him to 6 hours soon so I am not a walking zombie at the office. His stats at two months are:

Weight: 13.6 oz. (close to 90th percentile)
Height: 23.5 inches (75th percentile - this went down but doctor was not concerned since it is really hard at this age to get a good measurement)
Head circumference: 15.5 (25th percentile)

He got two shots and the rotovirus vaccination orally. He did great with his shots. He is sleeping peacefully now.

We have our fist post-placement visit tomorrow. I am not sure what to expect but I am sure it will be fine. I just need to clean the house a bit so we have a decent place to sit and talk with the social worker.

A picture from today (exactly 2 months old). Checkout the adorable smile:

It's so hard to believe it's been that long! He's adorable.

What a great smile. I'm sure the post placement visit went well. I was surprised how uneventful they were when we had them.
