2 Month Stats...and laughing!

My little man finally went for his 2 month appointment today and here is where he stands...

  • He is 12lbs 15oz, which puts him in the 20th percentile and that shocks me because he seems chubby!
  • He is now 25" long, which is the 90th percentile so, that means he is actually long and lean! Who knew?!?
  • His head was 15" for the 32 percentile...he is on the smaller side like his cousin Presley.
  • He is on target for all social and motor development
After all the fun stuff he got 6 immunizations that involved 5 separate shots and on set of drops. He actually cried very little, he was a little champ. After I looked over the papers about all the immunizations they were giving him I wasn't certain they were such a good idea. It seems crazy to injected my baby with these diseases and hope his little body fights them off. I know I am supposed to do it but I REALLY don't like the idea of it. I never thought I would be one of "those" moms. He is doing really well so far, he has preferred to stay cuddled up next to me and has been snoozing off and on since we got home. At least we have 2 more months before we have to do it again.

Oh, I almost forgot, last night after singing a beautiful and apparently rather entertaining rendition of the "Bumble Bee Song" I got my first out loud laugh from Landon. It surprised me so much I had to process it for a minute. I thought my song deserved an encore and guess what...another laugh at the appropriate moment. Which caused me to continue to sing the song about another 100 or so times...with no laugh. That chuckle was probably the cutest thing I have ever seen! Poor daddy has yet to hear it, hopefully he will soon before the magic of the bumble bee wears off!
