10 Weeks Old

Favorite songs: Peace Train (Cat Stevens), Beautiful Boy (John Lennon), Prelude from Cello Suite no 1 (Bach)
Favorite word: ng-ah
Best tricks: Smiling; Reaching for and occasionally grabbing toys.

Quirks: Snorts when it's time to eat; Won't sleep in his bed during the day (he needs help falling asleep, and most of his naps are in his bouncer chair).

Last week was his 2 month checkup. He weighed 9 lbs 12 oz and measured 23.5 inches. Apparently that's pretty tall and very skinny. He's gained 2 lbs 6 oz and grown 3 inches since birth. I'm trying to fatten him up, but the more I feed him, the taller he gets!

Harrison and I have been in Utah for a week now. Matt's in Alabama for officer training. We miss him pretty bad. I do get to talk to him on the phone at least once a day. Whenever Harrison is awake when Matt calls, he gets to talk to his daddy. Here's Harrison right after one of these phone calls and just before bed.

I show Harrison Matt's picture everyday, and he smiles back at it. It's really sweet. We can't wait for him to get home!
