My Baby Has a BIG Head!

We went in for 2 vaccinations today (poor baby!- he has been miserable ever since). Luke has a 17 inch head, is 16.5lbs and 24.5 inches long. He is a BIG boy! He is in the 75% for height, 100% for weight and 95% for head size.

Developmentally, he is also growing. He says several different sounds (at different volumes), laughs, and can roughly mimic sounds that we make. He also reaches for toys very well now and rolls onto his side.

We are going to take a big leap tonight and try Luke again in his crib. When we have tried before, he has not slept well. He does not sleeping on his back and I have not put him on his stomach during the night. He has been sleeping in his little baby chair so that he can curl up, but eventually he will outgrow that. Tonight will be a good night to try since his leg will be sore and he will need more room.

Since the Dr's visit, he has been in the carrier that you see above quite a bit. It is his instant-calm apparatus.

He has a cute little "punkin" head! Besides I think he is very smart - there is lots of room for smart stuff up there. Papa Jones
