Monday Augie turned eight weeks old. Technically Friday he was 2 months (if you are going by the date...). He's turning into such a little man. It's absolutely incredible to watch him grow. He's had a lot of family visitors. It's normal to have both sets of Grandparents, his Aunt Boo Boo & Cousin Lehnie stop by frequently.
Lehnie is going to be a big sister in May so she's getting a lot of practice too. She think's he is soooooo cute AND prefers to call him by his formal name, August.
Grandpa Alan came by for a visit last week. Someone was a little fussy and is still getting a hang of the bottle. We currently give him about one a week to make sure he is used to it when the time rolls around for day care when I go back yo work (just about 3 weeks away now). Yesterday he had two bottles from Dad and they were much more successful. In the next few weeks we'll practice a little more.
Augie is very alert and loves looking around the room. He really enjoys shadows and inanimate objects on the wall. They make him VERY happy. He follows voices, smiles, coos and grunts up a storm. We've even caught a laugh or two. His favorite, and most talkative time of the day tends to be at 2:30am and 4:30am! The squeals make it easier to be up at that time. I know you are not supposed to "play" during the night time, but I can't help laugh when he's totally "geeked" out and smiley. Dad seems to get more early morning laughs and giggles than Mom. I think they talk guy stuff which seems to be more intriguing than what he and I talk about all day.
His new stats:
- Weight: 10lbs 2 oz (17th percentile)
- Height: 22 inches-he's grown a whole 2 inches in 2 months! (17th percentile)
- Head: Huge... 39.5 cm (35th percentile...wow!)
