Charlie, two months

Mr. Smiles is two months old. And what a difference that month makes -- in a mere 30 days he went from lying down for his monthly photo to kicking back in his favorite chair for the old photo shoot. Sure, he's propped precariously in the corner and I may have dropped the camera at one point to save him from face planting in the chair seat, but that's neither here nor there.

In addition to smiling up a storm, Charlie is charming us with his coos and gurgles. Ever the wiggle worm, he can rotate himself a full 360 degrees in under 30 minutes, and it's not uncommon to find him wedged beneath furniture. I wish I was kidding. While I hesitate to say anything for fear of jinxing us, Charlie is a good little sleeper. The two nights after his baptism he slept through the night, which was quite humorous, as my Grandma Klostermann used to swear that babies sleep better after they are baptized.

Now that we have confirmed there are, in fact, two dimples, the family is now guessing whether or not he will keep his blue eyes. He certainly has lighter hair than Mary Clare, so it's a possibility. I checked Mary Clare's two month photo set, though, and her eyes were still blue at that time. So the waiting game continues.

As far as the official stats go, at his two month appointment Charlie weighed in at 10 pounds, nine ounces, and measured 23.5 inches. So we're up a little over a pound since last month, and he's grown just under an inch. The poor guy had his first big round of shots, which was of course traumatic for both of us. Silent scream, I did not miss you at all.

I am way behind on photos, but I can now offer you the complete July set (here), and a partial August set (here). Check them out and see why I'm so smitten with the little lad.
