Doctors Who Are No Help

Today is a big day in our household. Zane had his 2-month checkup this morning and, although we haven't broken him and he's still breathing, I thought FOR SURE we'd be admonished for something...something...about how we are managing our baby. After all, we are first-timers, with a one-percenter, and we don't even know what we don't know. Alas, he is "perfect."

At two months, Baby Zane weighs 10 lbs. 6 oz., is 22-3/4 inches long and his head is 40 cm in circumference. Apparently we are doing not just a good job, but a "fantastic" job growing our little human. He is happy (smiling, cooing, "giggling" with his whole body), healthy (nursing 7 times a day, sleeping well) and beautiful (baby acne is gone, and he's got the adorably fat buddha belly). As Peegie said this afternoon, "parenthood...who knew?"

Still no points; but, then again, we're only 8 weeks into this adventure.

Don't worry - your time will come...

you'll cut off the end of one of those tiny perfect fingers with the nail trimmers,

or clonk his head into a door frame while carrying laundry on the other hip,

or let him slide out of your hands and right under the water in the bathtub....

(Not that I've done any of those things... no,never...) ;)

Good job!

How the heck can you get any points in this game that way? Have you tried dropping him on his head or leaving him home when you drive to Grandma's house?

Round the bend is right. Wait till you're mid-praise at his amazing stair-climbing acumen and he falls all the way down said stairs before you know what happened. Oh, there's alwasys something.
