Growing Boy!

Colin had his 3 month checkup today!! He weighed in at 11 lbs. 1 oz. and was 24 1/4 inches long! He fell into the 50th percentile for height and the 25th percentile for weight which were both better than last time (although, we don't follow the growth charts so strictly).

Dr. Uma was very happy with Colin and his progress and he was so happy to see her! He gave her lots of smiles and by the end of the visit, was "talking" to her! He showed her how well he can hold his head up now and how active he is (he was trying to roll over even though he didn't quite get there during the visit). She felt that he is progressing so well so mommy and daddy were very proud.
He also got 2 shots today and even though he took them like a champ, he did form the pouty lip and let out a little bit of a cry. Daddy made sure to point out that he "wet" his diaper before he got the shots...haha.
Colin also had a developmental therapy visit today and his therapist was so proud of the progress he had made in the 2 weeks since she'd seen him last. He had Nana and Grandad here to watch today! He did a great job staying focused on her today, using both hands to grab toys, track objects, did well with tummy time, sang songs and was generally a very happy baby! She told us today that she will go to the daycare to make sure he is doing the things he needs to do while he is there so Mommy felt very relieved about that. She gave us a boost by telling us that she felt we were doing a great job because Colin was doing so well, so we felt so good to hear it!

Colin had a great and busy day today!
