Here is what we found out at his doctors appointment on Monday:
Weight: 13lbs 15oz - 95%
Height: 22.75 inches - 50%
Head Circumference - 50%
~He's been growing SO SO much lately that my guess for his weight was between 12 and 14 lbs. Well I was right. He just eats a lot and very much enjoys it. He must be my son :). He's on a pretty regular schedule as far as eating goes, every 3-4 hours.
~His sleeping is pretty good. He sleeps a good part of the day but is also awake a good part of the day. At night he is sleeping between 6 and 8 hours stretches which I am so grateful for. Last night it was 8 and was wonderful.
~He seems to love watching Noelle and I and gets so excited to see us. Me and Noelle sometimes dance around the family room and he seems to get excited when we do this, it's so cute.
~Michael is still sleeping in our room. Mostly because I don't know how to transition him and Noelle yet into sharing the same room. With Noelle she was in our room forever. But I learned my lesson and we would like to get him sharing a room soon. I fear that Noelle may try to get in bed with him or wake up all the time. We had to get rid of our old crib so I think as soon as we get a crib we'll do the transition I just don't know when that will be.
~Little Michael is a cuddler. I love it. He just cuddles in to you when you hold him and it's so sweet.
~He is obsessed with the wall behind our couch. There are a bunch of frames and other decorations and he could stare at them forever. This is helping him to hold his head up on his own as well.
~The smiles are starting to come and they are so so sweet.
~A lot of the faces he has look just like Noelle did. I'm still amazed how much they look alike sometimes.
~He still grunts but not nearly as much as he did at the beginning.
~Michael very much enjoys the walks that we take and he LOVES being outside. He's just so happy out there. It seems like both my kids love the outdoors. I'm hoping that he will enjoy camping more than Noelle. Well Noelle loves it just not the nights.
~Noelle loves her little brother. She always is showing everyone her little brother and saying how cute he is. When she gives him a hug he turns toward her and opens his mouth for a kiss. I think it's so sweet.
Anyway. I just love my little guy and cannot imagine our lives without him.
