2 Months and Thanksgiving

I figured I better blog about his two month checkup, since he will be approaching his 3rd month here shortly. This is mainly for me, since I have not gotten is baby book bought.

2 months 2 weeks:
Weight 10 LBS even 15%
Height 21 1/2 inches 5-10% (we're hoping for a growth spurt any day now!)

He smiled/cooed at his doctor during his whole exam. This is major because usually he is screaming his head off.

Mom cried more during the shots.

Starting to loose that gorgeous hair of his! Maybe not really loosing, but its growing in lighter. One day looks like it might come in blonde, one day red. ( Elizabeth: We could have matching red heads.. I'm just sayin'..)

He is doing those big grins. The ones where you know any second he is going to bust out a huge belly laugh, but doesn't.. One day my little friend. He smiles at everything, which makes me feel great about myself!! I had the news on the other day and I caught him smiling so big at the news lady. I mean huge smiles over and over. I was kind of sad, cause it made me feel not as special.

He is sleeping mostly through the night, which makes for one happy mommy and daddy!

He loves his tummy time!!! I have never seen a baby so content on their tummy before. He has this little mat that he lays on and pushes up on his arms so he can look around. I wish it was safe for him to sleep on his tummy, because he loves it. Sometimes I have to put him on his tummy and rub his back so he'll fall asleep and then flip him over.

On to Thanksgiving..

This year we were with Kristopher's family. We all went down to St. George with my mother in laws family. We all stayed in condo's, but Kristopher's cousin has a GORGEOUS home there that we had the actually dinner at. We had so much fun visiting, shopping, making jewelery, and lots of other things. I had so many babysitters I felt like, I was childless. I love that this little boy has so many people who love him!

I have so much fun with his family. We always have such a good time! I feel really blessed to have married into such a wonderful family. Not only immediate family, but all the grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. It makes being so far away from my side of our family so much easier.

This year I am especially thankful for family. It's comforting to know that they are there for me and my little family 100%. They bend over back words to help us with so much, give it big or small. I couldn't think of a better family to belong to than mine and Kristophers.

The Whole Schow Family (well close to it)

I love the picture of Colin in the crib in his little tie. I have a hard time imagining that dark hair turning red or blonde, but I believe you.

Have a great Christmas!!
