Street is 2 months!


At 2 months Street weighs 15 pounds. His percentile is HIGH (meaning it's not even on the charts). The doctor told me today that the average one year-old weighs 20 pounds and that we might be looking at a new carseat by 6 months. Geez.

His height is 24 inches (85th percentile) and his head of course is in the 90th percentile. He's a big boy all around.

He is starting to give us glimpses of his personality. His name really suits him. He smiles all the time and has started "talking" to us. He is so strong. He holds his head up so well for a 2 monther and the doctor today told us his tone and strength are wonderful. She said he's ready for the bumbo. As you know, this is something that we do not take for granted. The doctor did notice a small heart murmur today at his appointment but she said she is not worried about it. I am not going to worry either.

At 2 months, Street still loves to be held and to be part of the action. He also loves to have one hand in your shirt while being held. He can raise one eyebrow. Everyone comments on his reddish-blonde hair and his pretty skin. He is eating about 6 -7 times a day and has been consistently sleeping for at least a 4-5 hour stretch at night.
At 2 months of age, we can't imagine life without him. The smell of his bald little head, the grins and coos, the way he still rages when he's hungry or tired, his serious little face that looks so intently into our eyes...we love it all (well maybe not the raging, but the rest of it).
