Play Time

I don't play with things yet, but I like to look.  I spend time every day on my play mat, where someone invariably shakes a rattle at me. 

I'm also having longer and more frequent, earnest conversations of "ah-goo."


Mom and Papa also insist on "tummy time," but I don't enjoy it very much.  Although I'm getting better and better at lifting my head while I'm on my stomach, it's still hard work.

Springtime Walks

Seattle has had really nice weather this spring, so Mom and Papa have been taking me for lots of walks in my stroller [right].



However, I sleep more while strolling than I actually enjoy the view.

Visitors from Holland 

A big event in March was the visit of my Oma and Tante Lianne from the Netherlands. They arrived March 19th and stayed for a week.  We all went shopping together, and we even attended a rijsttafel dinner hosted by the Dutch-American Chamber of Commerce. But mostly they held me a lot, which I really liked [left], and spoke lots of Dutch to me.

Two-Month Doctor Visit

I visited my pediatrician at the end of March for my two-month check-up, and we found out that in two months I grew A LOT.  When I was born, my length was at the 75th percentile; now it's at the 90th (23 3/4").  And my weight was at the 25th percentile; now it's at the 75th (11 lbs, 9 oz)!  This would explain my ample cheeks and chins [right].  I guess Mom has been feeding me really well.

This doctor visit I also received my first in a long series of inoculations.  I suffered four shots, two in each thigh.  (Good thing I have a lot of fat there.) That was NO FUN, but fortunately I didn't experience any ill effects later.
