Self Soothing

For those times when there are no pacifiers/dummies to be found, a thumb will do.

Bath Time

1 comment:
Most of the time Rowan likes to have his clothes and himself covered in milk. So occasionally he gets to have a bath. He's still not too happy about the bath part, but he does like being dried off afterwards. Sophie even helps out with a few licks.

Saturday Night In

Rowan was happy to spend most of his Saturday night taking a little snooze on the couch. After his dinner of milk, he's usually out for the count.

Muffin Top

Rowan had his 2 month check up yesterday at the pediatrician.  We knew he has been gaining weight nicely as his newborn outfits no longer fit him.  And also, there's this evidence:
(you'll have to forgive the grainy cell phone photos, the professional is not at home)

Extra chins
 Chubby hands
Massive cheeks

 And a muffin top!
Turns out he is right on track, in the 50th percentile for weight at 11lbs 11oz.  Nothing like being perfectly average!  He is slightly taller than average for his age - a whopping 2 feet!  The bad news is that he was due for some shots.  Three shots to be exact, poor little guy.   He cried of course, when they went in, but was quickly calmed by his Mummy.  I think it hurt me more than him, to be honest. 
Rowan's doctor is a really nice lady.  I think he'd like her if she wasn't sticking him with needles and poking at his ears and stuff.  She's very friendly, she always takes lots of time with us and lets us stay in the room after the visit if the wee yin wants to nurse.  It's nice to not feel rushed at a doctor's appointment.  We go back again in 4 weeks.  Rowan is looking forward to it, I'm sure.

Roaring Brook Falls

With the mild weather, Rowan went for a climb up to see the falls at Roaring Brook. He didn't do much of the walking himself, but we soon had our calves burning with the steep inclines. Sophie also helped to drag us to the top.
