Elliot is a Beast

Our little boy had his 2 month appointment today with Dr. Elliott and we can say confidently that this little boy is not starving...He weighs a whopping 12lbs 7oz (75th %ile) and he is 24 1/2 inches long (93rd %ile).  Looking back at my baby book I was around the same weight, so now we can also confidently say that Elliot takes after his Mommy's girth, crooked pinky finger and long eyelashes, haha, everything else is Daddy.  Today he also got his first set of vaccinations, he was a trooper once again and he cried more getting weighed than he did getting the shots.  The overall appointment went great.

A couple days ago Elliot also had his developmental evaluation completed by some lovely ladies that I work with in the school district.  Elliot woed them with his good looks and showed him what he does best.  He will now be getting some great Early Intervention with a Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist and a Developmental Interventionist.  Byron and I are looking forward to having some extra eyes on Elliot's development and we will never turn down extra therapy for our little guy...every little bit helps.

Our other big news this week is that Elliot is officially becoming a thumb sucker...I fought this at first and kept popping his thumb out and the pacifier in, however, last night Elliot told his momma whats up...he spit that pacifier out so hard that it flew across the room and he popped his little thumb right in.  He hasn't become a master yet, but everyday he is able to find his thumb faster and faster.

We are seeing more and more smiles everyday, and its the best feeling when he wakes up from a little snooze only to greet you with that big happy smile.
