BW of the Week

This was taken on October 17, 2007, soon after Bobo was first introduced to the baba.  I think this is Week 9.  Seems like he spent all day eating, and I got to spend all that time cuddling him up!  I miss those babas.  :)

Nine Weeks and Sleepy

Arin's weekly "birthdays" are on Sunday, so each new week is another week old. This week he turned nine weeks, and today we had his two-month doctor's visit. Everything went well, he is the picture of health and still the cutest thing ever according to the staff, not to mention extremely happy. The doctor was impressed that he's already giggling (he was having so much fun 'playing' with her during the exam'), and the nurses were talking about how content and happy he is, and said that you can always tell the babies (like Arin) who get lots of attention at home because they are calmer and sweeter. He weighs in at 10 lbs, 11ozs (25th percentile) and is 23 1/2 inches long (75th percentile), with a head circumference of 39 1/2 inches (50th percentile). So, he's very tall and thin still.

Then, unfortunately, he had to get his shots, three of them and a weird drink. My poor baby cried, but only for a little while. And now he's been sleeping most of the day, which is rare since he hardly ever naps (but now he sleeps through the night, finally some rest!). Also, today was the day the cats were neutered, so I have three little baby boys sitting around the house not feeling so great. :(

Two Months Old!

I have been posting what few pictures I have put up to facebook, so head on over there to take a look. I'm slowly editing more... I hope to have an entry for each week Arin's been around. So, here are some pictures from week 8!

Arin has been doing so well. He's still pretty slender but he likes to eat a lot still. He's been smiling and happy since birth but now he's making all kinds of happy noises too, his vocalizations are definitely increasing. His hair is growing in golden blond, of all things! He has this long dark brown hair and golden roots, its quite interesting. He's also learned that he can make things move by kicking, such as the sheep that hang in his bassinet, which are currently his favorite little 'friends'. He's just so sweet and cuddly, even when he's crying!

Making his funny 'eeeevil' face:
Arin all relaxed, loves being held:

Cutie pie!
