Thatcher is 2 months old!

Baby T is 2 months old! He is 11 lbs (WHAT?!) and 23.5 inches long. He's almost DOUBLED his birth weight! Crazy growth-spurt there.  He's still on the skinny side of the growth chart, though, and quite long for his age -- tall and skinny like his bro and dad.  He had his 2 month check-up today, and got his shots -- he was a champ at first, and just did his usual "LA!" of protest, but when he woke up from his nap, he screamed bloody murder for a long time (have YOU every had three shots in one day? One of them a tetanus shot? I don't blame him). Poor little guy. Thatcher NEVER cries, so this was quite the deviation from normal -- it was so hard for me to listen to him scream like that!
Anyway, he is growing so well, eating so well, and looks good and healthy! He smiles all the time now, is starting to coo (LOVE!), holds his head up for a long time by himself, supports himself surprisingly well on his feet, and..........ready for this?!...........he already rolls over.  From front to back.  The first few times, I thought it was a fluke, but he does it CONSISTENTLY every single time I put him on his tummy.  He even did it today for Dr. Strasser, and she was shocked. She said "Yep. He can roll over!" and laughed.  He throws his head to the side, then wiggles and throws his feet over til he's completely on his back. Here's a video if you don't believe me:

(sorry about the shaky camera -- I had a toddler jumping on my back)

I love this little sweet heart! He is so laid-back and chill -- something we need around here ;)
