2 Months!

Aug 14, 2010

Colin is 2 months old  as of yesterday.  Which is a big fat deal!  According to my measuring devices he is  11.2 pounds and 23 inches long.

There is is.  Stoic.  Serious.  Reserved.  With an adorable little double chin.  This is the face we see most often.  Ok, that's not quite true, we see the frowny face a lot too, but even though it is the cutest frowny face ever, we don't have any pictures of it.  Taking a picture of a crying baby is like stopping to take a picture before you pull a drowning lady from a river.  It is considered rude.  Just ask the drowner if they aren't inconvenienced by your photography.

ANYHOO, so he likes to be held standing in your lap all day long, his eyelashes still haven't stopped growing and are long and curly, and he has finally started smiling.  He technically started smiling a couple of weeks ago, but they were rare: no more than once a day, if conditions were just right.  But today he just kept smiling.  Almost any time I smiled at him he would smile back.  Ack!  It is so cute!

I try to get Harrison to help make him smile, but he just gets all shy, giggles and runs away.

Hooray for our boy!

Incidentally, when Harrison turned two months old he was 11 pounds, 3 ounces and 23 inches long.  I never, ever would have guessed that they were the same size.  Crazy!
