I believe that i forgot to mention the results of Silas' 1 month check-up last Tuesday. He was up to ... 11 lbs. 12 oz and 22 3/4 in. long. I don't remember his head circumference, but he was 90% percentile for height and weight and 50% for head circumference so we've had fun with lots of "dumb jock" jokes. Henry was scheduled for his 2 year check-up on Friday, but do to a scheduling snafu, it won't be for another week or so.
Silas hasn't repeated his 7 hour sleep stint, and as predicted the very next night was pretty terrible. He did atone by sleeping for 6 hours last night which was a very welcome gift from baby Silas.
We've had a pretty relaxing weekend, mostly spent at home tackling projects. We had Corey, Troy and baby Kerala over for pulled pork yesterday that JT smoked for about 7 hours. It was actually delicious even though typically i'm not a huge BBQ fan. JT took both boys to the grocery store yesterday morning while i got to sleep in. This was also a welcome development-- perhaps i should consider it an early mother's day gift!
We've got a busy week of Dr. appointments and social outings. Having two friends with new babies in the same neighborhood is amazing and has made maternity leave such an enjoyable experience-- Silas' calm demeanor certainly helps as well. I put together a matrix before Silas was born of maternity leave to-dos that would help keep my occupied. I remember feeling a bit of cabin-fever when i was home with Henry so i put together three columns-- projects i could do at home, short outings in the immediate vicinity, and big outings that would be a real undertaking. The idea wasn't that i would accomplish them all, but that i already had thought up a ton of great ideas in case i was feeling stuck. With all my social engagements i have to say that i'm working on the projects and i've done some of the local outings, but i haven't felt the need to tackle any of the major outings because i've stayed so busy.
