We just returned from our two month appointment for our baby boy. He is growing quite nicely and weighs 8lbs. 8ozs. and is 20.5 inches long (he was 4lbs. 1oz. and 17.5 inches at birth). Since he was such a preemie (eight weeks early), he's just now starting to do things like smile and look at us when we talk to him, hold his head up a little, and be awake more. We discovered that he had an umbilical hernia last week (just like his mama), but the doctor says that it is a small one that should rectify itself by the time he is two years old. All in all, it was a good appointment with answers to our concerns:)
In other news, his baptism is on March First. We bought him this cross (the same as his sister's for simplicity's sake) for his "everyday" one and his godmother will be giving him his baptismal one. I can't wait to see what she's picked out! We are also looking forward to seeing the baptismal gown his godfather offered to get! That day will be full of wonderful surprises and lots of wonderful family and friends coming to see our little bundle of joy become an Orthodox Christian!
