Long and Lean

You can't tell from this photo, but Des is a happy, "long and lean" little guy.

Desmond had a two month check-up last week. He weighed 10 lbs. 5 oz. and was 24 inches long. The doctor pronounced him "long and lean."

I thought seeing him receive the two-month vaccinations wouldn't bother me since he had an IV in the hospital. Wrong! Even though he only cried for 20 seconds, I still found my eyes wet with tears. I guess I'm a softy. I'm OK with that. :-)

Another milestone is that Desmond also rolled over last week! I can see now whey parents get so excited about these small milestones. When a baby can't do anything for himself, it's exciting to watch him slowly gain independence.

What a sweet picture! And so exciting that Desmond has learned to roll over! There will be no stopping that kid. :)

Wow! He is long and lean...and rolling over?! Our short and stout guy has no interest in moving. He will lay around and get more rolls rather than rolling. =) Such a sweet picture of Des and his Mom. I miss you, KK!
