Two months old

  • I can't believe Zane is already two months old!
  • He is growing everyday and is now starting to grin at us....some....it has to be on his terms. He's pretty stingy with them right now.
  • He's finding his voice. Lots more cooing noises.
  • He is happiest in the mornings, right after he eats. That's when he will sit contently, look around, and 'talk' to me.
  • He loves bath time unless he gets cold. Keep that boy warm and he's happy as a clam.
  • He is sleeping better, not anywhere close to sleeping through the night, but at least it's more predictable.
  • He makes a funny face where he sticks out his lips and crosses his eyes. We call him "The Cross-Eyed Bear". Funny story....his Aunt Kaye Kaye thought that was the name of a song when she was little...you know, "Gladly the Cross I'd Bear"....
  • Speaking of bears, he grunts ALL NIGHT LONG. He's getting better, though. And he squeaks a lot. Especially when he's eating.
  • He can hold his head up like a champ.
  • He could bring his hands together from birth. He always has those hands moving around. Matt calls them his 'jazz hands'.
  • At his 8 week appointment he weighed 11 lbs (25th percentile) and was in the 50th percentile for length. I don't remember the exact length....over 22 inches.

Zane is growing up!!! I guess Kohen and Zane will be in the same class! (They're about 2 months apart). It will be fun to watch our kids grow up together!

Very cute! Love the jazz hands! So I showed Matt my demon cat and he jumped back about 4 feet and said "That cat wants to eat me. She wants to scratch my eyeballs out." It was just as entertaining as you predicted. Thanks for the prompting. :)
