Sam - Two Months

Dear Sam,

You were two months old a few weeks ago!

You, my dear son, have got to be the sweetest baby on Earth.  Your dad and I have hit the baby-jackpot twice now, and I can't believe it!  You have the sweetest, most pleasant disposition.  When you're not just laying there being sweet and quiet, you're smiling and cooing at anyone that will talk to you.  Really, the only time you get upset is when you're hungry, tired, or have gas.  You are still pretty gassy, which upsets you a lot.  I honestly can't believe the amount of gas that comes out of you sometimes.  You love to be held, but don't really mind being put down either...unless you're tired, hungry or have gas :)  

You are making the sweetest cooing sounds these days and really starting to find your voice.  Every now and again you'll give out a big, loud shriek of excitement!  It's so cute.  It's almost like it startles you to hear it!  You are becoming more and more alert, sleeping and waking at more predictable times.  You are eating about every two-and-a-half hours during the day, which I think is helping you sleep better at night.  In most recent weeks, your last feeding has been around 10 or 10:30 pm, and a couple of times you've slept until 5 or 6 am!  You are still in the bassinet in our room but quickly outgrowing it.  I didn't even realize it until yesterday, but your head and feet are almost reaching the ends!  I'm thinking it won't be too long before you're in your own little room in your own little crib.

You are getting to be such a chunky little monkey, and Mommy loves it!  At your two month check-up last week you weighed 13 lbs. 12 oz., were 23.5 " long, and had a head circumference of 15.5".  That puts you in the 90th, 75th, and 50th percentiles for weight, length and head.  You had to get four vaccination shots and one oral vaccination.  You were pretty upset the rest of the afternoon, which completely broke Mommy's heart, since you are normally such a happy baby.  You are currently wearing size 2 diapers, although a 3 will work too, and size 3 month clothes.  I've put a couple of 6 month size outfits on you though, and they aren't all that big, so I'm thinking you'll be in those pretty soon.

Okay, I have to mention "the hair".  You have THE WILDEST head of hair.  It just stands straight up!  Since you've been born it's gotten thinner (you're starting to bald in some places), lighter in color, longer on the top, but it is still standing up :) Everyone (and I do mean everyone) comments on your hair.  It really is cute.  I guess you're taking after your brother!  He had what we called "feathers", and now you do too!

Like I said, you love to be held and talked to.  You haven't shown any real interest in any toys yet, but if we are talking to you, we have your complete attention.  You love your big brother, and he loves you.  It is so heart-warming to see that big smile come on your face when he talks to you or kisses you on the forehead.  Jack has to give you a kiss every night before he goes to bed.  The other day I looked in the backseat of the car, and he was holding your hand.  He did get a little rough yesterday and actually bit you on the forehead.  Whoops.  I explained to him that we don't bite, so hopefully it won't happen again.  You were very upset and rightfully so.  Sorry, Sambo.  But he does love you very much :)

Well, that's all I can think of for you 2nd month of life!  We love you very much, sweet Sambo.  You are the perfect addition to our family.
