2 Videos

Just thought I would post a couple videos for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

7/22/2010 - Ian on his first trip on an airplane. Headed for Family Camp in Wisconsin!

7/22/2010 - Ian giving his update after his two month check-up.

2 Month Update

Can you believe it?  Ian will be 2 months old tomorrow!  I would save this post for then, but we will be leaving for Texarkana tomorrow for the weekend, and I didn't want to forget to get all this great info up here.

So yes; 2 months!  We went in for Ian's well visit today.  The little guy did great. There was the typical measurements of weight and length. You won't believe this!
This is Ian's growth chart for his weight. I don't know if you can see the bold, red line, but that's where he is at for 2 months.  He shot up from about the 50th percentile at his 2 week visit to about the 95th percentile today!  So help me, if one more person makes a comment about me having a starving baby...well, I'll just show them his chart!

These next two are his charts for his head circumference (he's a tad over 50%) and for his length (he's pretty much right at 50%).
What all that breaks down to for those of you who don't understand the percentile thing (don't feel bad, I don't totally get it either) is that Ian now weighs 14 lbs, 4.5 oz.; he is 22 inches long, and his head circumference is now 40 cm (I think it was 40 anyway...).  Basically, he's a big boy.  It's funny hearing everyones comments about his rolls. He certainly has plenty of them.  Good pinch-able cheeks too. :D

This has been a big month for Ian though. Ian experienced his first major holiday (July 4th).  We went to a family friend's house and shot of fireworks.  Ian was quite intrigued.  Here is a picture of him though beating the heat at the July 4th church picnic.

The biggest thing probably is that we went on our first family vacation to Sky Lodge Christian Camp in Montello, WI.  That's a long way from Albuquerque, so we got to fly.  Yes, Ian has his wings.
He did so well! From Albuquerque to Wisconsin, he pretty much slept through both flights. On the way back, he was awake for most of the trip, but he just looked around like the curious little guy he is. Mommy and Daddy were proud of their little man.

Family Camp was a ton of fun, and Ian got to meet (and be held by) lots of great people; friends we love and miss dearly.  He got to see Grandpa Doug and Uncle Kevin again too. We think he enjoyed the whole experience.
If you want to see our pictures from that week, you can check out Ryan's facebook page.

First family photo taken at Sky Lodge Christian Camp. We hope to have more taken in the future!

I think that's about all for my update right now.  I do try to post more pictures on my facebook page, so if you're getting antsy to see pictures, or if you want to see the wider collection of them, please check in there often.  

As always, thanks for checking in with us.  'Til next time!
