Summer Fun

Riley has been having a blast this summer, doing all sorts of fun things including visits both sets of grandparents, going to the park, going to the Lincoln Children's Museum and Kansas City Children's Museum, going to the Kansas City Zoo (twice), going swimming (three times), doing a Gym class (twice so far), and of course playing at home. Here are some pictures from all of her fun!

Visiting her favorite animal at the zoo. She even touched it!

2 Months Old!

Time is sure flying by...I can't believe that Connor is already two months old! The past two months have been great, but have passed by SO quickly. In the last month Connor started smiling and even gave me a giggle once! He isn't a super smiley baby, but he has smiled at us about 5 times. Riley was also a very serious baby and she smiled even less than that but we all know she is ALL smiles now! He is doing a great job with "tummy time" and holds his head up like a pro. Riley definitely loves him and she enjoys giving him hugs and kisses and tries to share her toys with him.

Connor had his two month doctor appointment a little early (just 4 days). At that appointment he weighed 9 lbs. 8 oz and was 21.25 inches long (although at home I measured him at 22 inches, so he's somewhat in between there). He has been gaining a steady .5 lb per week so he is about 10 lbs now. That's pretty good for a boy that started out so teeny! At birth has was at the 2nd percentile for weight (so 98% of newborn boys in the world were bigger than him) and not even on the charts or length! He is now between the 10th and 25th percentiles in both!

Here are some pictures from the past month:
