Think of this as the most interesting delurking project you'll ever participate in. After giving back to others at the Celebratory Society, I have decided to participate in it myself. You can understand the project in full by clicking here, but in brief, the Celebratory Society is an online festschrift for a blogger--a way for you to tell me what my blog or actions mean to you. But this isn't about me--this is about you too. And I would love it if you returned to your own blog, started your own Celebratory Society post, added it to the main project list, and gave me the opportunity to tell you about...you. Here is my link to the project:
Celebratory Society Post
Our little Peanut turned 2 months a few days ago...it goes too fast! Mama started back to work, and Peanut started day care...sad, but necessary. He seems to be doing well there...he is a different baby altogether from what I can tell, LOL. Way less fussy. And I totally was a bum and took what we call OOH (means Out Of Here) and probably worked a total of 12 hours all week, LOL, not counting commute time. I swear I will actually stay there this week.
Today we had his checkup, and first shots. He was a trouper and really didn't cry all that much considering. He cries longer for food, LOL. Here are his stats:
Weight: 7lbs 9oz (more than a pound and half in 12 days!!!!)
Length: 20" (a 2" gain in a month!)
His head circumference finally hit the charts at the 5th percentile. Height and length not so much, but getting closer. However, height vs. weight is proportional at the 50th percentile. Woohoo!
He has a lot more periods of alertness and loves to stare at patterns. He will also quite happily stare right at the wall. No true smiles yet, but we are holding out hope that it happens soon! He is even getting some chub!!! It was terribly exciting (and a bit bittersweet) when he finally was into newborn clothes.
We are continually amazed by his funny faces, and every little thing about him. I can't believe he has been with us for 2 months already, 9 amazing weeks!!!
As for his gDiapers - yes, there is some leakage if we don't change regularly at every 2 hours, but that happens with regular diapers, too. And I can hand wash them really easily. I need to take stock out in white vinegar, LOL.
