2 Months Old- Eek!
I'm amazed at how much our baby has grown both physically and developmentally in such a small amount of time. I can practically see the neurons making new connection after new connection. My days are consumed by gummy smiles, all kinds of new and interesting noises, and just marveling at him. He is so social and loves to be talked to.I had this series of books called the magic castle reader series that I LOVED when I was little, I can still remember all the stories to this day. I want to read Roxas these same stories that I loved so much so I found the entire set on Ebay and we pick a new one each day to read and both of us love it. He loves pictures too. If he sees a picture of somebody he recognizes he will usually smile really big! I even made him a special little picture book with pictures of all his family. He is learning new skills each day. His newest accomplishment is being able to reach out and grab for things! Of course the first time he did that I just about threw a party to celebrate, because this is a sure sign he is a genius right? I know it's silly to get all excited over the smallest things but it's hard not to find myself practically jumping for joy when he does something developmentally new.
See...genius right there. He is getting more and more confident and better at grasping every day. We practice all the time ;-) You can find a whole bunch more videos at the shutterfly website too!
Roxas has his 2 month well-baby check up on Monday and I'm excited and scared. I was a HUGE needlephobe and I really hope I don't pass this behavior on to him. I have gotten better as I got older, even going to school to become a phlebotomist so I can draw blood, muwahahaha, ahem...legally...for doctors. The only things I still really hate are getting I.V.s (I typically pass out) and shots. I am getting better about the shots but it's tough. Hopefully I can be strong and show Roxas there is nothing that scary about needles and he can avoid having my same phobia.
