Leon's 2 Months Old

Leon is 2 months old now and he is doing great.  He usually goes to sleep around 9 and gets up around 4 to eat after which he goes back to sleep till about 7, then he eats and sleeps again sometimes until after 9.  During the day he likes to eat every 2 hours but I think he is old enough for me to start stretching that to 2 and a half hours. 
Leon loves it when we talk to him.  He smiles and coos back at us.  One time he even laughed!  It was a one time thing, but I can't wait for more.  In general he is a pretty happy baby.
Leon is getting better at holding his head up, and I am going to start doing more tummy time with him.  We haven't really done any yet.

All the kids still want to hold him all the time.  They are also great helpers with him.  I am always asking someone to give him his pacifier or to run upstairs and grab a clean diaper.
As you can tell his hair is still growing and it is brown.  He hasn't really lost any or gotten a bald spot in the back yet.  Just lots of the softest brown hair you have ever felt.
The poor guy had to get 5 shots yesterday!  It was so sad.  But the nice part was that he slept most of the rest of the day afterward and today he is back to normal.

His stats:
Height: 24" (86%)
Weight: 12 lbs 4oz (65%)
Head: 15 3/4" (51%)

He does seem to be even tempered. He's lucky to have so many people to love him!

He's a cutie, and except for his hair, looks like he belongs to his brother and sisters. It's wonderful that they are embracing him so nicely. You have a great family! :-}
