At 2 months, Joel...

* weighs 13 lbs 11.5 oz and is 24.5 inches long.  A growing baby boy!  The newborn sleepers and 0-3 month clothing are packed away.
* is squeezable and loveable.  His double chin, rolls, and folds are delightful! 
* likes to lay on a blanket on the floor so he can stretch and kick.  His right leg just gives 'er.
* is content to take in the world around him.
* will hold his arms straight up or out in a superhero pose when he's being changed.
* graduated from the infant tub to the big tub as he quickly stretched out from end to end.
* gives us many smiles and laughs daily.  His whole face lights up!  
* has begun to have long conversations and tell his stories. 
* is incredibly strong.  He can hold his neck and head steady.
* celebrated his first holidays...Thanksgiving and Remembrance Day.
* is alert and beginning to follow our voices and where we are in the room, especially keeping his eye on his busy sister and Mama.
* loves to be comforted by being wrapped up and swaddled over a soother.  
* has a calm and content temperament.  We are incredibly blessed!
