Two Months Old

Owen is now 2 and a half months old, but I wanted to give a "two month" update.

 (At two months old, Owen got to watch the Cardinals win the world series with his Grandpa and Great Grandpa)

Two month checkup:
60th percentile for height and 25th percentile for weight (was previously 15th for weight, so good job Owen!)
Took his shots like a champ - the nurse was lightning fast and he didn't cry as much as I thought he would.

Recent milestones:
Smiling A LOT - mostly in reaction to others, although sometimes just smiles on his own or at a toy.
Holding his head up really well
Sitting up (supported or held up)
"Standing" - bearing weight on his legs
Being pulled into sitting and standing positions
"Talking" - will now have conversations and also make noises on his own. Kevin gets the best talking out of him.
Will follow a small object with his eyes.
Starting to reach for stuff, occasionally can grasp but not usually.
Flew on a plane for the first time at 8 weeks old - he did GREAT and mostly slept the whole time.

Binky, but mostly to fall asleep and right after a bottle, not all the time.
Diaper changes - oh the difference a month makes, now he smiles when you take his diaper off.
Play time - he prefers to stand on your leg, but also likes being bounced on your knee, having his cheeks tickled and "talking".
His black and white quilt - we call it "Owen's TV"

When there's nothing left in the bottle
When he's tired and wants to keep playing
When he's in the car and it's not moving
