Calvin - 2 months old
Calvin David Dean
You are 2 months old!
And while your outfit above says "tiny" - you're nothing but. We just got home from the doctor's office where you weighed 13 lbs, 10 oz and measured a whopping 25.25 inches long. Your head was 41.5 cm in diameter and you are growing well!
Chandler outweighed him at 2 months by a pound, but Calvin is taller now than Chandler was at 3 months. We go to a different doctor now than we did when Chandler was little, so Cal's on a different shot/appointment schedule than Chandler but it's fun to see how they compare to each other.
You wear size 2 diapers, and are in 3-6 month clothes. We just put the 3 month clothes away this week since you were getting too long for them.
You started cooing and making sounds this month, and love to smile!
I feel like your little appearance changes all of the time - most everyone says right now that you look exactly like Chandler, but I see a lot of your daddy in you too.
You are such a content baby and sleep so well. You wake up once in the middle of the night to eat, and then early (like 4 or 5 am) and go right back to sleep each time. You don't love to be held, especially when falling asleep. If you're tired, all I have to do is lay you down with a blanket next to your face and you put yourself right to sleep. You do like to be in a bouncer though - especially if you can see the rest of your family. We eat most meals with you in the bouncer by your dad, and Chandler in his booster between us.
Your brother loves you - like really, really loves you. And you love him - when he holds your hand or touches you, you always start smiling. I hope that love is always there for the two of you.
You are a trooper, and are game to go anywhere. You're a great traveler and we've logged over 4,000 miles on the van since you've been born - AI'ing cows, watching your dad judge fairs in Oregon & Idaho, and helping clerk the sale at our own county fair. When the sale started, the auctioneers couldn't believe you'd just be content to hang out (or sleep) through the 6 hour sale - but you were!
I lifted the stroller up onto the auction block, and besides taking a break to be fed at the start of the pigs - we managed pretty well right there. A few diaper changes and a few more naps - and by the time we knew it, the sale was over. :)
Calvin - thanks for making us a family of four.
We just love you to pieces and are so proud of you!
