Dennis is getting chubby. He weighed in at his 2 month appointment at 14 pounds 3 ounces (76th percentile) and was 25 1/4 inches long (99th percentile). He's the perfect size and we just can't get enough of him. He has been on the verge of laughing for about 2 weeks. We get a few now and then, but nothing that's been unstoppable. We're still waiting for that one. I almost had it today, but it wasn't continuous.....but his laugh is oh, so sweet. He is a goooood goooood baby.
Michael had his 2 year appointment too and weighed in at 28.6 pounds (48th percentile) and 36 1/2 inches (88th percentile) He's really thinned out this last 4 or 5 months it seems and turned into a little toddler and lost a lot of baby fat (except in his cheeks. His face still jiggles when he runs and I love it!)
Daddy making him smile. I love this picture. He sure loves his kiddos and it makes me so happy to see him love our creations so much.
Lets pretend that kids didn't make you really tired, or wear on your body to actually grow and birth them as they do.......in that world, we would have like 30 kids because he(we) loves them so much. But, since we are human we'll probably have only a couple more. Still, it makes my heart ache to ever think that we'd be done having babies. So we enjoy every moment of them now. I love this phase in my life and feel very blessed to be in it.
I love to rummage through the .50 books at the library that they have out front. We often find books in a series that we don't have or random stories that I know my kid will love. I hit a goldmine the other day. I found 10, hardcover dora the explorer books. *eye roll* I know right?
But, my kids LOVE THEM! They have been reading them cover to cover for weeks and still haven't tired of them. Michael loves that all his favorite characters are in there. Penny loves that she can read them herself. I love walking into their bedroom and seeing scenes like this:
Penny took a few pictures of Dennis this morning. Look at his eyes, still blue. Today, I could see a few specks of brown in there so I'm not convinced that they will stay blue, but wouldn't that be fun? Such a sweetie this one is.
I love the chub at his thigh. Its probably one of the only times in life when it is actually cute and makes you want to nibble on it.
Michael sings ALL DAY LONG. He does, he sings all the time. This morning he was making up a song about Dennis the Menace. I don't even know where he heard that. I have a feeling these two are going to be goofy, goofy brothers together.
