Flyin' By ...

How time flies! Jace is two months already. I can hardly believe it. (I just checked out his one month post ... I started it the exact same way.) Jace is getting to be such a big boy! We went last Monday to his 8 week appointment. He now weighs in at 12 lbs 1 oz {68th percentile}(I faintly remember a time when we were concerned about his weight. NOT anymore!!). He is 23.5 inches long {80th percentile} 16.5 inch head circumference {120th percentile ... bwahahaha that's not even possible! He is in the 93rd percentile though}. At least he is proportional (besides his head). I marvel at the little spirit I have in my home and each day he is more and more fun to be around. I feel truely blessed to have him -- makes 8 years of waiting worth it!

At 2 Months I Can ...

Like mentioned above, Jace is more fun now than ever before! It melts my heart to see him smile, which is happening more and more often. He has two smiles: the 'I'm amused' half smile and the 'dimple' smile. When he gets in the right mood he will give us the dimple smile while we play. Last night Joe can into bed with a big grin. "That was worth it". he said. I looked at him and he imitated Jace laughing. I have seen it once or twice ... precious! Jace is becoming more interactive with his toys; he is fascinated with their sounds and will follow them with his eyes. The sound of his rattles can also calm him down when he is upset, a temporary fix to whatever is bothering him. His head strength continues to grow. He will hold his head up for long periods of time and look around, (always with his forehead furrowed!) On several different occasions, he has rolled over from his stomach to his back while laying on my bed. He is sleeping longer through the night, a straight five hours! He loves to cuddle still; I hope he never stops.
