Pillsbury Dough Boy

I've taken to calling True the Pillsbury Dough Boy. It's better than Amazon Baby, which is the other adjective that I can come up with. Seriously, I don't know what to do with a kid that is this big. Well ... big to me anyway only because I'm used to living with a munchkin (aka Mallory) the likes you see in The Wizard of Oz. He's got so many cute rolls that I just want to eat him up.

Where is all name calling coming from? Surely a good mother would never come up with such monikers for her child. I must be in the running for the *worst* mother of the year then! True had his two month checkup on Thursday. Funny how I dread getting on the scale, but I revel in getting my kids weighed. Anyway ... he clocked in at a whopping 11lbs 12oz and was 22 3/4" long. How did I end up with such a big baby? I thought that Shawn and I only produced midgets, but apparently not so.

Sip and See, a Southern Tradition Continues

This weekend was our "sip and see" for Truett. We had quite a few of my friends show up and fun was had by all. Especially Mallory. She was the belle of the ball. Pics to come later. I'm too lazy to download them from the camera right now.

In the meantime, let's get an update on Truett. He's getting so big! And, it's amazing how much he looks like Mallory did at this age. I pulled out a picture of Mallory at three weeks and held it up to Truett - carbon copies is all I can say.

He's starting to smile (did that for the first time when he was about 5 weeks old, and no it wasn't gas!) more often and tracks my voice with his eyes. He's even starting to try to hold his head up high. Solid as a rock (football player in the making?).

Last night was another milestone. Maybe more of a mommy milestone. He slept in his crib for the first time. I know in my mind that his room is only across the hall and I can peek into his doorway from our bed if I contort my body in just the right way. But, in my heart the distance of that hallway feels like the Grand Canyon.
