Two Months!

Little Semmes is two months old.  And no, time has not flown.  He weighs 14 pounds and is 23.5 inches long.  That is the 92nd pecentile for weight and the 69th for height.  His height-for-weight percentile is 88.  In comparison, at Cooper's two month visit he was just over 7 and a half pounds, 21 inches, and in the 5th percentile.  So Semmes is literally twice as big as Cooper was.

Cooper at two months:



He got his first set of shots today.  And that did not go well.  Semmes, surprisingly, is a screamer.  Considering how calm he normally is, I was not expecting this at all.  And it was horrible.  Cooper was much calmer about the whole shot thing.  And the screaming has continued.  Every time Semmes has woken up today he has screamed and cried until he has gone back to sleep.  Shots are not going to be fun.

He continues to be a ridiculously efficient eater. He ate for 11 minutes total at the nutrition visit and ate 7 ounces.  He's two months old; he should be eating more like 4.  But Dr. B says there isn't much we can do to change that since he doesn't eat for very long.

He is starting to smile more.  And he finds the weirdest things funny.  Like his tongue.  He'll stick it out then just grin really big.  Over and over again.  It's really funny to watch.  And when we were doing his two month photo shoot, I was trying to take pictures of him sitting next to the giraffe, but he just wouldn't smile.  As soon as he started falling over, he thought that was hilarious.  So that's why he is all angled weird in his picture.

Sitting up=not happy:



Falling down=hilarious:




Cooper is doing much better with Semmes.  He actually looks at him and smiles at him.  It's pretty nice, actually.  Hopefully this continues.  I included this picture again just because it's one of my favorites.
