2 month appointment

Conor had his 2 month appointment and shots yesterday. He weighed 13 lbs 3 oz and was 24 in. long, and his head was 16 1/2 in (90% percentile for each). He did very well with his shots - he cried for about 10 seconds, then went back to sleep. I think one of the shots must have been a happy shot because he has been in a great mood ever since! He was really sleepy yesterday and I was worried he would be cranky today, but he's been very happy and "talkative". I can't believe he'll be 2 months old tomorrow!

His hair continues to be awesome:

What Are THOSE???

Conor found his toes today! He was sitting in my lap staring at them for several minutes. He even grabbed at them a few times. This was the best picture I could get with him a foot in front of me:


That was the bill for Conor's 7 day NICU stay! That doesn't include x-rays and all the other "extras" they've billed separately. Fortunately our share was $0 - thank you insurance!

Ah goo

Conor saw the nurse today for a weight check - we think his Zantac dose might need to be adjusted so the NP wanted to see where his weight is at. He's 12lbs 15oz, up 20 oz. in 21 days - doing great! Size 2 diapers and 6 month onesies are where it's at!
He is really enjoying his play mat - he loves to wiggle and talk to the cow mirror.

(I have a video of him on the playmat but it won't upload now - I'll try again later.)

He is also grabbing - not reaching for things intentionally but if his hand lands on something he likes he will grab at it and hold on.

Conor's First Wedding

Conor went to his first wedding yesterday! Congratulations to Uncle Brian and Aunt Katie!!! He was much more interested by the outside of the church so that's where we spent most of the ceremony :( He met lots of his relatives. As his cousin Nikki said, "Everyone is talking about his hair. EVERYONE!"
Here we are with cousins Robyn and Avery:

The Little Prince

Conor was six weeks old yesterday. If this is supposed to be the peak of fussiness, I'll take it!!! Here he is playing with Daddy in his new Michigan gear:
Conor has been meeting lots of new people lately! Last weekend he met Uncle Will, this week he met GreatAunt Cori and cousin Nick, and today he met GreatGrandma and GreatGrandpa Carmody, GreatAunt Karen, and Cousins Marcy, Scott and Alex. Aunt Cori says he is the Carmody "Prince" - first born son of the first born son of the first born (and favorite ;) ) son. Here he is with four generations of Carmodys!

Conor is "talking" a lot lately - lots of "coos" and "ahh goos". He is all smiles and usually greets us in the morning with a big smile! He is sleeping well - usually he is up once during the night and has even slept through the night a few times! Night feedings are always the easiest and he goes right back to sleep. I actually kind of look forward to those.
