Oh, boy! You're Two Months Old!

Dear Will,
These past two months have FLOWN by. How are you getting this big already? You're up to 11 pounds and 6 ounces. I know this isn't huge by any means, but you're growing big and strong. Today you had your 2 month check up and shots. Talk about breaking Mama's heart. You took the oral vaccine so well, but then it was time for the three (yikes, 3!) shots. The first one happened and you screamed so loud. All we wanted to do was pick you up. Then the next two came and the nurse was so fast it was like you didn't really have time to cry before it was all over. You had a little children's tylenol and loved it and now you're sleeping like a champ. I'm so proud of you. While you may have let out a scream, you didn't really cry. My eyes might have gotten a little teary, but you were a trooper. Then on the way home, we stopped so I could get my flu shot to protect you the best I can since you can't get one yet. I love watching you grow.

As your Daddy said, this picture shows the calm before the storm.

And here's the aftermath of the storm...

And here you are getting bigger and bigger...

His two month picture is his pouty face. We took your passy for just a second so we could see your whole face and this is how you looked at us. Sweetest face ever. And yes, you got your passy right back after we saw how sad you were without it. You're rotten already and we don't mind one bit.
This month, you've started to smile and giggle and these moments are by far my favorites. You are so alert and the nurses are super impressed with how well you focus on people and sounds and on your beautiful hair. The ladies really dig it.

We love you so, so much and can't wait to see how much bigger you get for your 3 month picture!

Mommy and Daddy
