The Chunky Monkey's Two Month Appointment

Monday was Cooper's 2 month appointment. We were very excited to see how much he weighed. I knew he would be big. The scale said he weighed 14 lbs. 9oz. and that is only in the 75%. I expected the percentile to be larger. Cooper has gained 6 pounds in 2 months!!! He measured 24 1/2 inches tall and is in the 95%. The doctor says he is a healthy, growing boy.
Cooper is outgrowing his clothes too quickly and has cute fat rolls. He is now wearing size 2 diapers and is mostly wearing 3-6 month clothes. He is getting harder to carry around for long periods of time. (Thank goodness for the baby wrap I have.)
Cooper is a strong little guy. He holds his head up quite well when he is sitting on our laps. He lifts his head when he is on his belly. (Note: he doesn't like tummy time.)

Cooper loves his mommy. He is definitely a momma's boy at this time. He is starting to smile and always wants to be in the same room and within arms distance of someone. Cooper is a social little guy.Cooper is tracking objects and making eye contact very often with us. His cooing is so precious and he enjoys talking to me when I change his diapers. He likes to swing and bounce.
Cooper has a nice double chin. He is mild tempered and LOVES to be held and cuddled. We love our chunky monkey.
