3 Month Checkup

I finally took James to his 2 month checkup last Thursday, despite the fact he was one day shy of being 3 months. Whatever, right Summer? What-flippin'-ever. Want to know how he is? He is huge that's how he is. At three months he is 14 lbs 12 ounces (the 80th percentile for weight for his age), and 25 1/2 inches long (90th percentile for height) and his head is 42 cm. (75th percentile) but considering he was 3 weeks early he is really bigger than the percentile he was put in. This one woman told me her son was the same, now he's 6'5" and his dad isn't even taller than 6 feet. He already says, "mamamamama" he started doing that at 2 and 1/2 months (not a lot, but usually in the mornings or if he wants me to pick him up. I tell ya' talking to your child in third person really does work). When I told that to his pediatrician she said that was really advanced for his age. (Take that Uncle Chechi, I told you so!) She also said he was really strong when she stood him up on the bed thing they have. He's still working on the neck thing though, but that's my fault I don't give him enough tummy time. He'll probably be bigger than his cousin Scarlett by next year's cousin's camp if he keeps this up. By four months he'll be wearing 6-9 months clothes. He grows out of his clothes so fast, we can't afford to keep up, but thank-goodness for Savers and 99 cent Mondays. Although I missed today. I saw a snowsuit last week, hopefully it will still be there by next week. Here's the boy.

He won't nurse for comfort, and he won't take a pacifier (almost never unfortunately) but he WILL suck on his hand.

Nap time with dadders.

Eleanor sucks on her hand ALL THE TIME! I'm certain she's starting to teethe, especially since when she is all done nursing she start chewing, which has got to stop! Anyway, James is HUGE. And adorable. Good job.

What a good-looking baby! I love the shots of James and Stephen together. Some of his expressions look just like his daddy. We miss you guys!
