Two Months!

Theo turned a big two months old this week! By big, I don’t me actually big… he’s still in the 5% for size and we recently had some friends who had a baby that was born larger than him. So yea… he’s tiny.

But he’s growing fine considering where he started and tipped the scales at a healthy 9 pounds recently. That makes him just a little bit smaller than our cat.

More than his weight though, his personality is growing rapidly. He’s a smiling, giggling, generally happy baby and has really started to become aware of his surroundings recently.

During his two month photoshoot, he proved that he either A) can count to two or B) knows the international sign for “peace out.”

And yes, we absolutely will keep doing these for the remainder of his life. We already have the 216 month patch for when he goes to college!

Coming Up…

On the blog next week, I have a few things planned that I think you all will love. Tomorrow, I’m posting a fun and fast breakfast sandwich that’s engineered for all of us who wish we had time to plan a real breakfast, but never actually get around to it. I’ll also post some delicious chicken tenders (baked, not fried) with various sauces and a semi-philosophical look at the world of food blogging!

A smattering of good stuff from around the web this week.

Homemade French Onion Dip – This dip will absolutely be on my table during March Madness in a few weeks. Will I share it? Unclear. (@ How Sweet Eats)

Breakfast Na’an Skillet – Homemade thin na’an breads with mustard greens and eggs for breakfast? Such a delicious idea and some good moody photos from my buddy Nik. (@ A Brown Table)

Flank Steak Peperonata – I feel like I’ve had this dish and just called it fajitas. But, it is slightly different due to some changes in sauce and pepper usage. Important stuff, no doubt and makes for a good plate of food. (@ The Bitten Word)

5 Things You Should Buy From Restaurant Supply Stores – If you’ve never been to a restaurant supply store, find a way! They are incredible if not a bit intimidating. It’s a good idea to know what you are going in for or you’ll walk out with 1,000 disposable chopsticks and 4 gallons of Worcestershire sauce. This list is absolutely a good start for how to navigate.

Have a great weekend everybody!

  1. So cute! Our 6-month-old is in the 6th percentile for weight, so I hear you. We are constantly seeing younger but bigger babies than him… but he’s happy and healthy otherwise, so we figure he’s just going to be a skinny genius. Must be where yours is headed too ;)

  2. Oh my goodness…..that is one adorable baby!! Enjoy these precious moments, they go so fast. My little boy is a senior in high school & is off to college soon. You are just starting that amazing journey :)

  3. What a little sweetie! Such a beautiful smile. I think he’s showing everyone it’s his “2 month” birthday, yippee! Love those precious little fingers and toes.

  4. Our son is going to be one on the 31st of this month and didn’t actually get on the charts for weight until his 9 month checkup. He came in at 4th percentile and we were all high fuming each other. For him serious weight gain didn’t happen until he started on solids and now he’s an eating machine. Theo is absolutely beautiful–what a great big gummy smile!

    1. Thanks September! Yea… I’m excited to start some solid foods in the kid’s life. In a few months hopefully. ;)
