Happy Baby

This is the best picture that I have taken of Rerun so far:

The outfit is an old one of Tad’s, but I love anything with a baseball motif.  Scrap Mom gave Tad this outfit, and Handy Mom borrowed it for Handy Boy when he was little.  But I digress…

Rerun had his two-month-old checkup last Friday with Dr. N., who was pleased with his growth and development.  Rerun showed off his excellent neck muscles and kept his head steady, focused in nicely on the doctor, and earned kudos for his nicely-shaped head.  He currently weighs 12 pounds, 13 ounces, and is 23 5/8 inches long, which places him in the 70th percentile for weight and the 62nd in height.  His head is a nice 15 5/8 inches around, which puts him in the 38th percentile.  I’m perfectly happy that my babies have all had small-to-average sized heads.

As you can see, Rerun has begun to smile a lot.  His cooing has also developed into some squaking, which is very cute and expressive.  He likes to be on the floor for some reason – more space, maybe? – and last night I left him on the living room floor to go change into my pajamas and brush my teeth (Ane and Tad were in bed, and the Webmaster was on the computer).  When I came back, Rerun was gazing at the window.  I greeted him with “Hi, sweet baby… how is my little boy?”

His head immediately turned toward me and I was rewarded with the biggest, gummiest smile that has ever been seen on a 10 week old baby’s face.

Be still my heart.

I love my sweet little baby boy.
