9 Weeks of Fun!!

Friday marked 9 whole weeks since the world was blessed with Malachi Allen and he's starting to be SO much fun! Thomas and I stayed home with him last Tuesday and we had a blast with him all day! He was talking and kicking and smiling! Parenthood was fun up until now, but now that he's starting to interact with us we are REALLY having a good time. He's not just smiling because of gas anymore, he's actually showing us that he's happy! He even rolled up into a little ball last night and giggled when Thomas was playing with him! It's SO special!
Saturday, we went for his 2 month checkup and it went GREAT! He weighs a whopping 10lbs 7 oz and is 22 1/2 inches long! He is in the 25th percentile for both height and weight and the Dr. is THRILLED!! We saw his growth chart, in comparison to the "average" growth chart on Saturday and it was really cool. The normal growth chart is a very nice "bell shape" and Malachi's line is going STRAIGHT UP!! YEA Malachi! He also got a shot and an oral vaccine and didn't even cry! He whimpered a little bit, but that was it!! He's such a big boy!
On a different note, we have a friend who has twin girls age 2 and a little boy who is just over a year old. One of his twins, Camryn, has just been diagnosed with leukemia and is receiving chemo as we speak. Please pray for the Smith family as they are going through a REALLY hard time right now. I can't imagine seeing your baby in pain and not being able to do anything to help him/her! Please pray for Marcus, Julie, Camryn, Olivia and Noah.

Wow. I can't even imagine how much my little chunk will grow in the next couple of weeks! Malachi is already looking so much bigger and not like a newborn! so cute :)

I love hearing about your life and how everything is going since we are both going through the same phase in life! Working super mommies rule!
