Little Poppet 2 is FIVE months old today! He partied through the night to celebrate the occasion. Actually poor baby boy was up with a nasty cough - but despite that he was as ever super happy today. Friday was his belated 4 month check up (the last wellness check-up turned into a pneumonia diagnosis). Charlie did really well. He weighed in at 16 pounds and 5 oz and 26 inches long. And, like his big brother, his head was OFF the charts! He also had his first vaccination (we selectively vaccinate and do a delayed scheduled). I was dreading it. He was smiling away as the nurse came towards him and I felt awful guilt because he had no idea what was about to happen. He gave a little startle and within seconds he was smiling again.. He really is such a super happy baby.
He's growing up so quickly. In lots of ways it's seeming to go much faster than Rafi's infancy. Charlie is super interactive and in the next couple of months he'll even begin solids. He's not yet rolled (always so close!) but he's getting so strong and really gets excited when he's playing with his toys. He loves to be cuddled and loves being in his moby/ergo/beco carriers. He also loves his playmat with the little animals dangling down, and of course he loves his big brother as well as the pups. What a great little boy.
