Two Month Appointment

Silas had his two month appointment today.

He grew 2 inches and gained almost 3 whole pounds

Current weight: 12lbs 4oz

Current height: 25 inches

He is in the 50th percentile for weight and 95th for height.

Poor little guy got two shots, one in each leg, and an oral medication.

He's been spending the rest of the day by sleeping.

Swimming at Mema and Papa Joe's house

This week we decided to take Silas for a dip in the pool.

Mema and Papa Joe have a salt water pool in their back yard and a huge tree that provides a lot of shade over the shallow end. We outfited Silas in his adorable sea lion swim diaper and slathered him with sun screen. He was not a fan of the sunscreen.

Aunt Andi took pictures while we tested out the water. It was nice an warm from baking in the sun, but not too hot. It was like a bath and Silas seemed to have enjoyed it.

Papa Joe came out and decided to come swimming too. He had a lot of fun with Papa as he swished him around and splashed water at him.

We swam for about an hour. Half way through he decided he didn't want to lay in the water and we kept him upright. He kicked his legs and bobbed his head up and down. He even decided to dip his head in a few times and wasn't scared of the water at all. The salty taste was a lot different and he would smile and coo and try to get more in his mouth.

Professional Silas

Mema and Aunt Andi bought Silas a scull and cross bone outfit even before we knew he was a boy. They have been talking about getting pictures done ever since. Of course he didn't fit in it right away so we had to wait. He's getting so big and at 8 weeks he finally fit into so we took him down to a studio near by.

We started off in a bit of a bad mood, but after switching our session with another family and feeding him, he was much happier.

Mema and I ended up buying several poses. These are only a sample of what was taken. And don't worry there are plenty of copies to send to Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and cousins!

By far one of my favorites, and Mema's too.

I don't believe we bought any of this pose, but I love the yawning!

This pose was free and they finished the photo by having his face in black and white and the color present.

He wasn't very happy on the pillow so I got down with him and talked and made faces. Once again he became my happy boy. I love when he looks at me like this.

I can't believe how grown up he looks in this one....

Note to grandparents: you get an 8x10 of this pose!

Balding Baby

Silas is slowly loosing all of his dark hair....

He's got this funky friar tuck thing going on, but you can't see it from the front.

He's also got a small patch on the top and its coming back in slowly in the front in a sandy blonde color which has some red in it when you are outside in the sunlight.

I really miss his dark hair but hope it finishes falling out so the new growth can come in.

We have a sleeper!
Silas slept for a full 7 hours last night. He went down by 10:30 and didn't wake up until 5:30.
Now only if mommy and daddy would take the cue and go to sleep when he does!
We tend to stay up and chat and catch up on the day since Silas pretty much dictates what we do and when we do it and that doesn't leave much time for talking with one another aside from "Can you get me a diaper?" or "Do you want me to take over for a while?"
Even though he slept so well last night he has had a rough morning. We did everything to calm him down and finally after several diaper changes, feeding, and a warm bath and baby massage with bedtime lotion he finally calmed down.
The ups and downs of being a baby. Fortunatly he is back to his happy little self!
