Thriving!

(Author's note: this post duplicates a post at Worst Mama Ever)

Today is a big day in our household. Zane had his 2-month checkup this morning and, although we haven't broken him and he's still breathing, I thought FOR SURE we'd be admonished for something...something...about how we are managing our baby. After all, we are first-timers, with a one-percenter, and we don't even know what we don't know.

Alas, he is "perfect." At two months, Baby Zane weighs 10 lbs. 6 oz., is 22-3/4 inches long and his head is 40 cm in circumference. Apparently we are doing not just a good job, but a "fantastic" job growing our little human. He is happy (smiling, cooing, "giggling" with his whole body), healthy (nursing 7 times a day, sleeping well) and beautiful (baby acne is gone, and he's got the adorably fat buddha belly). As Peegie said this afternoon, "parenthood...who knew?"

Yeah,he is now a few ounces heavier than a 10 lb sack of sugar. Come to think of it, he is a 10 lb bag of sugar!! I thank God everyday that you and Peegie have been given the blessing of this child so that you will know how wonderful it is to be a parent. Keep up the good work. Love you
