2 month checkup

Thanks everyone who read my last post and for all your sweet encouraging messages.

So Carter is officially 2 months old. I can't believe it I literally cried putting away all of his newborn and 0-3 months clothes away. He is growing so fast, and while its exciting to see what the future holds its bittersweet letting go and just watching him grow! Everyday Carter gets more and more aware of his surroundings. I notice him observing this world in a different light than I do he is just so amazed with the littlest things. I wish I got a kick over watching a ceiling fan going around and around or sit and stare in wonderment over a window or a bright light. What if everyone thought like a baby did? This world would probably be a more pure and better place!

He had two appointments today one was at our home for his development. Once again Lisa was so impressed with our little boy. How strong his little chubby legs are, how alert he is and how vocal he is! Also the last visit she noticed that Carter preferred to look to his left. She gave me some ways to teach him to look to his right and now rather than him being 90/10 he is 50/50 with each side.

His other appointment was his 2 month checkup with the pediatrician. The exam went great he weighs 12 pounds and is now 22 1/2 inches I cant believe my tiny 7 pound baby has gained 5 pounds in 2 months! His vision is good and he is focusing with both eyes his is in the 50th percentile for his size. He had to get his vaccinations today and he turned purple from screaming so much, but as soon as I picked him up he was happy! (What can I say he is a Mommy's boy!) Now he is cuddled up in his swing falling asleep its been a long day for him! Goodnight!
