India: month two
Now you are two months old, twice as old as you were a month ago! You now weigh 12 pounds, 3 ounces, and you're 23 inches long.
Also, the hair on top of your head has started growing. You can see it getting longer (or rather, taller) day by day. You still have that middle-aged accountant baldness, but pretty soon you might even have a mullet!
We had a few hard weeks of nightly screamfests, and it got to where I would dread the approach of 6:00 pm. But during that time your father perfected the panther pose, and you rest very happily on his forearm.
Now you like to be carried around like that. Here he is performing feats of strength and fatherhood.
Your big brother is warming up to you. He pats you very gently and says, in a very soft voice, "Hi, India." The other night he helped me give you a bath, and he kept telling you that you were OK.
That said, he still gets jealous when I'm carrying you and he has to walk, and I wouldn't put it past him to try and see if a penny would fit in your nose, so it'll be a while before you hang out just the two of you.
Speaking of hanging out, you and I spend a lot of hours together in the red chair in the living room - nursing, cuddling, you sleeping on me. I know this time is fleeting, and sometimes I just sit there and stick my nose in your hair and nuzzle your sweet little face and squeeze your chubby feet.
I love you love you love you.
