Moving on up the growth charts...

LMX had his two-month check-up yesterday afternoon. He's a solid 4 pounds above his birth weight and 3.25 iches longer (or taller if he was a standing human being), which is perfect. He handled his three vaccination pokes like a champ...wailed during the sticks and immediately calmed once they were done. That stuff is always so much harder for parents than the babies.

Two months old and been in his 3-6 month clothes for over a week;> And, of course, he's still rockin' his punkish faux-hawk hair style...providing a source of hours of entertainment for me.

Miss P is a clumsy, enormous puppy. She's about 30-ish pounds at 3 months of age. It seems her leg muscles may not be quite ready to fully support her weight as she can usually be found flopping herself on the ground or at least plopping her butt down whenever possible.

I've one more whole week of maternity leave left. It has gone too quickly, and I just don't want to give up my days of quality baby time, but I must, so I will.

One of my very best friends leaves tomorrow to do contract work in Iraq for at least a year. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. Today's her birthday, too.

Oh, by the way, we all survived the snot invasion I previously mentioned; I apologize for any adverse physiological reactions that post or this follow-up may have caused;>
