First let's talk about my boy... cause I love him so much.
on Valentines DayTalmage, being 10 weeks and 4 days old, just had his two month appointment today.
His stats were
Length: 24.5" - 92 percentile (he's grown 3" since birth)
Weight: 11 lbs 13 oz - 27 percentile (up almost 4lbs since birth)
Talmage is such a good and happy baby! Dani was super awesome too, so we figured there had to be some sort of balance between them and that Talmage would have to be really challenging for us. Not so (not yet at least). That first week we were worried because he was crying a lot, but we figured out he was just gassy. Now, with gas drops before each feeding, he's super content. Thank you gas drops!
He is sleeping really well. He takes a morning nap (until Dani wakes him up) and then an afternoon nap and sleeps most of the afternoon. I wake him up, if he hasn't woken up on his own, at 5 so he'll sleep well at night. He takes another little nap before bedtime and then sleeps for 7-9 hours at night.
In the time that he's a wake he's smiley and super cuddly. Though I sure love his cuddles, sometimes it's a little hard because he just wants to be held... I need to remember to use our baby bjorn around the house more often.
Talmage is feeding well... I think he eats better than Dani did. His weight, percentage-wise, has dropped since his last visit to the doctors (I think my milk is already starting to dry up... it went early with Dani too, so we're working on that), but he's still growing well. Apparently, he's tall and skinny like Dani was.
We have many nicknames for him already, including (but not limited to) T-man, Mr. T, Mr.Tally man, TJ, Cuddle bug, Cutie pie, Buddy, and Talmage boy.
Tyler and I just stepped up in the world and finally bought nice phones (that actually require a data plan). Oooh la la is what I think just about everyday. I keep finding cool new things to do with my phone. Phrases like "Did you know they have an app for that?!" and "Check out what I can do on my phone" are now heard quite often at our house. Right now I'm charging my phone through a USB cord plugged into my computer and I'm freakin amazed. Yep, I'm easily amazed.
If you're interested these are our phones:
Samsung Galaxy S™ ll, Epic™ 4G Touch mine
HTC EVO™ 3D Tyler's
And because I love my Dani girl too...
