This & That.

They say it's pretty typical for a baby to double his or her birth weight by about 6 months.

Unless you are Myer Elliot, of course. If you are Myer Elliot, you just go ahead and double your birth weight by TWO months.

You know those little growth chart thingys, where they can tell you what percentile your baby is in in comparison to all the other little babies? Yeah... we're not on that chart. We've blown the top right off of that chart.

My goofy little non-conformist! Refusing to be boxed in or held down by charts and graphs and things... what a rebel!

Two month stats:
Height: 23.5 inches (75th percentile)
Weight: 15.8 lbs (1 majillionth percentile)

{Ezra was, comparatively, in the 10th percentile range at this age. TINY.}

He is a happy, healthy boy... much much more smiley than Ezra ever was. He is the greatest little side-kick I could ever imagine... I am completely smitten with him and his adorable personality. He coos and laughs and lights up when he sees my face. I find myself missing him when he's been asleep for any amount of time. It's kindof ridiculously crazy how very much in love I am.


In other news- yes! I love my new hairz! THANK YOU THANK YOU for all your input!!

I feel like a new woman. A much lighter, more radiant, easy-maintenance woman. It makes me feel sassy. And younger somehow. And I love being able to roll out of bed and not have to do ANYTHING to it- just stick a bobby pin in it and go!

Although, the 'hair to shampoo' ratio is going to take some getting used to. I keep putting gobs of shampoo in my hand and then realizing I only needed a drop. Doh!


I went to the new thrift store by my house today while Ezra was at school, and I was totally blown away by the amount of amazing stuff they had in there. It also happened to be a 1/2 off day, so I bought 3 bags of clothes for only $15. And I absolutely LOVE it all! I'll have to post pics of my finds over on my vintage blog. With such a great store right around the corner, I just might have to start up my vintage eBay business again!



Lastly, let's play a little game I call 'Compare the Babies!' Here's the 7 week comparison of the boys:

**Boop!** End mental upchucking.

FIFTEEN POUNDS. HOLY MOLY EM! We thought Dylan (Katie Dickeys baby) being 15 lbs at 5 months was huge.


Talia said...

ohhhhh, he's so cute and perfect and chubby. And apparently a good eater, too! :)

I've been meaning to tell you how fantastic your new 'do is. I LOVE it on you-- it makes you look like a sexy little pixy or something. Woohoo, hot mama!

Kaylen said...

I have to agree with the others---that's an awesome hairstyle on you. I wish I could get away with something so short and sassy! :)
And this is probably really good for you with a newborn. Especially a super-size newborn!! He's a cutie!

LOVE the hair!

And I posted today too -- my giant-size baby boy's (24 months) impressive height and weight!

Love those big chubby healthy ones. nom nom

oh man, I just adore your kids. Make sure you tell them bedtime stories about me so when we hang out they'll know me.

Also, I want a 360 view of the hair - side shots and a back shot! :) It looks amazing.

p.s. I am listening to your music right now so I can hear your voice. I miss you.

Oh my goodness, he doesn't look huge, but I guess he is! And your hair is sooo cute! I love the cut.

LOVE the hair! No matter how you compare those boys....they are too cute for words. Love Ezra's little hat.
