A couple of weeks ago, we went for his 2 month check up. He weighed about 13.7 pounds and measured at 24.5 inches long. The doctor said he was in the 96 percentile for his weight and 92 for his length/height. Well, I guess he is bigger than almost all of the other babies his age. It's amazing that in just two months, my little bambino outgrew a third of his clothes and is wearing a size 2 diaper now. I feel sad for all of the clothes that he didn't even get to wear!! But I am happy that he is a healthy baby. He has almost no spit-ups. Maybe that's why he is such a fatty.
We also went and got his shots. Poor baby. He got three shots on his thighs. One of the vaccines was given through his mouth. I think it was the Rotavirus one. He was happily swallowing the sweet fluid and smiling at the nurse. He had no idea what was waiting for him. The nurse stuck him really quickly though. Boom, boom, boom. It was over before he let out his heart-wrenching cry. I picked him up immediately and rocked him. He stopped crying and whimpered just a little. Luckily, he did not get a fever after the shots.
He loves to smile and "talk." He loves making noises when he's playing. He coos all the time. He is fairly good at entertaining himself. Sometimes I'd leave him on his swing or crib or playmat and he'd just stay there "talking" to himself or to me and look around him and eat his hands. I can usually leave him there for about 20 minutes before he gets bored and wants my attention. Morning time is usually happy time. He's alert, curious, and happy. I usually take him out for a walk after his nap in the afternoon. I love bundling him up, put him in the baby carrier, and wear him on my chest when we leave the house. The walk around the Provo temple everyday keeps me cheerful. I love to have him nestled on my chest. It makes me feel like I am pregnant again. He likes to look around when we're out and about. Usually he falls asleep hanging on to me. I think the motion and being so close to me makes him feel safe.
Anyways, we had an amazing time celebrating Thanksgiving at Mr.L's uncle's. It is always so fun to see his cousins and listening to them talk. Kids talk about the funniest things! It was Liam's first time seeing everybody. I am not sure what he felt but I think he had a good time there being held by Aunt Deanne and listening to all the laughing and crying of his dad's cousins. I am grateful for extended families and for the love they that they showed us. I am so grateful to be a mother to a sweet baby. I am grateful for his health and his sweetness. I am grateful I get to kiss him all over every single day. I love him so much and I am grateful he is mine.
My little cutie pie is growing up so fast and these are some pictures I took of him with my phone in the past couple of weeks.
