This week Liam officially turned 2 months old and we had his well-child doctor's visit. He is 24 inches long and almost 14 lbs! That puts him in the 75th percentile for his age group. He was great during the appointment and very healthy. We feel very fortunate.
I read in a child development book this week that a two month old can sometimes intentionally hold things. Can you believe it??? Our boy is holding a little maraca!
Sheesh. It's like he just came home with a gold medal I'm so proud.
Liam and I have started going to a local Mom and Baby Group. We have a lot really great people and it's good to meet other moms that are as sleep-deprived/deliriously in love as I am.
We think we figured out where Liam's blond hair comes from. It's a Shotwell trait - my Dad's Dad had it as well as Dad's sisters Nancy and Kim. My brother, Dylan, shown as a spunky three year old below, has it.
Looking at their photos, I can see the same round face, nose, and hair.
Which is wild because if he's anything like Dylan...
