2 months old!

That's right. We have a two-month old child! WOW, how time flies! We just got back from Banks' 2 month check-up at Dr. Holmes' office and we have a healthy baby boy! So blessed.

Weight: 12lb 8 oz (75%)
Height: 23inches (50%)

Our baby boy still LOVES to eat. He is on a pretty good schedule, going down around 8:30pm til about 2am and then back down til 5am and sometimes we can get him back down til 8, but most of the time he is wide awake at 6:30 or 7a. Not too shabby lil' man.

He LOVES to stand up, and is very strong. He uses us for balance, but can stand on his feet and hold his own weight. Mama is impressed. He smiles more and more everyday and gets a kick out of being tickled. He definitely knows the difference between sitting and standing up, as he loves to walk around - which can make for a sore back! :)

Overall, I would say this boy is perfect and everything I imagined and dreamed about. He is the best. Happy 2 months baby Banks!
