Shrade is 2 months old!

Our baby is 2 months old
We went to the doctor today to get the 2 month old shots. Shrade did very well.
He was 12 lbs. 10 oz and 24 inches long.

Here's what Shrade can do at 2 months:
*good head control
*sleeping 6 hours at a time
*eats every 3 hours
*looks at books
*makes bubbles
*busy arms and legs
*very alert
*plays piano (well, he played middle C once!)
*wears 3-6 month clothes (already!)

I am having so much fun staying home with our little Shrade. He is an absolute delight. He loves snuggling, singing, reading and sleeping. Thank you, Jesus, for our precious little boy!!

Shrade's rocking chair

Great grandma Elayne gave this rocking chair to Shrade.
I couldn't believe I captured a cute smile of him.
I think he looks so adorable!
