Owen had his 2-month well-baby visit today! Here are his stats:

Weight - 12lb 14oz (up from 10lb 5oz)
Height - 23 1/2 inches (up from 22 inches)
Head circumference - 40cm (up from 38cm)

He's growing by leaps and bounds, yay! He got 3 shots today (one of the shots is a combo, so he only needed 3 instead of 4), and despite the fact that he screamed at first, it only lasted a minute or two, and then he was fine. What a champ! I'm happy to say that I made it through without crying, yay me! He fell asleep in the car on the way home, which was only about a 5 minute drive.

I asked the doctor about Owen's wandering eyes and he said that as long as the light shines on the same place in each eye, he's fine. It tends to happen after naps, so maybe he's just too sleepy still. Owen also has a mild umbilical hernia, so we'll be keeping an eye on that.

Owen had his 1 month well baby visit today! Here are his stats:

Weight - 10lbs 5oz (up from 8lbs 12oz two weeks ago)
Height - 22 inches (up from 21 1/2 inches)
Head circumference - 38cm (up from 37cm)

Hooray, he's growing!

At one month, Owen

* Loves the boob
* Enjoys his baths but doesn't like having his head washed
* Wakes up about twice a night to eat
* Likes the sound of crinkling paper/crinkly toys
* Hates being strapped into his car seat, but is fine once he gets settled
* Will sit in his bouncer long enough to let me take a shower
* Doesn't seem to like his swing
* Stares at the color red
* Fusses a lot at night
* Will fall asleep in my arms but wake up the second I put him down
* Has great head and neck strength, but poor control

I forgot to mention yesterday that I've lost 21 of the 34 pounds I gained during my pregnancy, yay! Steve came with me to my appointment, and Owen screamed in his arms the entire time we were there. Poor Steve feels like the worst father in the world because of it.

Owen had his 2 week well-baby visit this morning, and I'm happy to say that everything looks great!

Weight: 8lbs 12oz (he was born at 8lbs 9oz, and was 7lbs 12oz when we left the hospital)
Height: 21 1/2 inches (born at 20 1/2 inches)
Head circumference: 37cm

The pediatrician said he's in the 75th percentile for everything. I've got quite the growing boy!

I'm sorry I haven't been around much lately. Please know that I'm reading along, just not posting much. I hope you'll forgive me :).
