Owen Got a 97%….

Post to Twitter .

It’s official… Owen’s growing like a weed. He had his 2 month well check today and weighed in at 14 pounds and 10 ounces. In two months he has gained 5 pounds and 5 ounces which is the 97th percentile for his age. His height was at 74% and his head at 55%. The numbers sound completely off from each other, but these are well proportioned percentages. I promise he doesn’t have a little head!!

Owen still has a lot of hair and every single piece likes to stick up straight on the top of his head. Dr. Beckford (our pediatrician) loves his hairdo and had every nurse and doctor stop into our room today to see it. It was pretty funny! Mommy is always trying to make it lay flat on his head, but Daddy is always slicking it back.

Owen has now become very social and loves to smile and coo. Yesterday he was completely amused with watching himself in the mirror on his swing. He was cooing and smiling and having a great time! I can’t wait until he starts laughing and be more interactive with Ryan. I don’t want to rush it though because I’m enjoying every single minute of my little guy. He is such a joy and even when he has his cranky times and screams at the top of his lungs, he is still such a sweet little guy. And he slept through the entire night last night which was the best thing in the world. It felt so good to get a good night’s sleep for once. Although I’m not counting on him doing it again tonight since he slept most of today after he had his 2 month shots.

As for Ryan, he was home sick yesterday with an ear and sinus infection. We thought he had pink eye, but it turned out that it was a little cold that developed into a sinus infection which then drained into his ear and was making his eyes water and get all crusty. Oh joy! Here we go again with another winter of ear infections, running noses and colds. And even though Owen won’t be going to daycare until December/January I’m sure he’ll also catch everything that Ryan brings home with him.

I have to start working again tomorrow. I’m NOT looking forward to it at all. Don’t get me wrong, I like my job and the people I work with, but how can anything compare to spending the day snuggling their baby? I’ll be working from home for awhile since we can’t get into daycare until Decemberish so at least I won’t be dropping him off tomorrow. He’ll still be home with me and will be playing and napping while I try to get back into the swing of actually working. Did I mention that I am NOT looking forward to this change???
