2 Month Results for Braxton


Monday was Braxton's 2 month birthday. He spent part of it at the doctor getting shots and measurements. Here is the final result.

Weight: 10 lbs 11 oz (up 15% from his 2 week appointment. Now he's in the 25th percentile)
Length: 22.1 in (25th percentile)
Head: 38.4 cm (25th percentile)

According to to the numbers, his height, weight and head circumference are very proportionate. Way to go Brax!

Put Me in the Zoo


We took Brax to the zoo for the first time a couple weekends ago. I can't say he got much out of it, but Bella sure enjoyed it. This time she not only knew the animal sounds, but she did the accompanying animal dance too. Her favorites are the monkey and tiger.
The carousel was still her favorite part. The cougar wasn't her first choice. She wanted the tiger, but an ambitious little boy with the same hope was quicker. Bella had to settle for the tiger's stripe-less cousin. Brax had to ride whatever animal was next to Bella, which happened to be an anteater. I don't think it lessened his enjoyment though.

Interview with Bella

I set up an interview with Bella for those of you who want to know how Bella is these days. It was hard to get her to stay still very long, so I hope you don't get motion sickness. Bella was working hard doing somersaults before I did this (see the previous video), as is evident by her messy pig-tails. Also, this video is like four minutes long, so get your popcorn ready and go to the bathroom before you hit play.

p.s. if you notice the scabs and bruises on her face don't dial the DCFS. She has become very daring/ reckless in the past two weeks, which includes jumping off beds and landing face first. We don't beat her, and we try to stop her ahead of time. Alas, the girl is faster than we are.

Gymnast Bella

I got a book yesterday called The Toddler Busy Book. I find that I don't have enough ideas to keep this girl busy. The book suggested gymnastics. I had no idea she could do somersaults at this age.

Terrific Two

These two have been almost nonstop cuteness. Bella loves her baby brother. She likes to help him hold a pencil and write his name (at least HER version of his name), and give him hugs and kisses. She can't go to sleep until she does.
I've got more material coming, including videos, so check back!
p.s. I realize those pictures are a bit small, so you might need to double click to see it up close.
