Alex's two month appointment

Alex is now two and a half months old! What?
Today we went for his two month doctor appointment. He is doing really well and the nurse described him as "sturdy." Our doctor was impressed with his shoulders and said he'd make a great linebacker one day. Yes, Alex is a very healthy eater. He is right on track with his development and even flirted with the doc and a couple of nurses. That's our boy.

He weighs in at 12 lbs and 9 ozs and is in the 50th percentile, his head also falls in the 50th percentile. He is 22 1/4 inches long which falls in the 10th percentile. Our kids have been blessed with good hair but definitely not height. It will be interesting to see how tall he becomes. We have quite a few shorties in our family and the only one with real height is my dad at 6'1. Since my mom was just under 5'2, that height was obviously negated.

Here's our sturdy linebacker:

That smile just melts my heart
And sisterly love-Sydney just loves Alex so much. She has been doing so well with him. Today she heard him cry in his crib so she ran to the bathroom to get her step stool, put it beside the crib and sang him songs while turning on his music mobile. What a great big sister huh?

Getting some cuddles in this past weekend
Alex knows he has the best big sissy in the world

Sydney really wanted Alex to sit with her and watch tv today so we propped him up and they had a great time.

Sydney's forced smile
