Noah's Growing Arc.

If you were planning to give step stools and seat belt extenders to Noah Finn for his three month birthday, you better have kept your receipt. Today was his two month check up and according to Dr. Zabari, he is perfectly proportional and just where he should be on the growth charts. Noah's latest stats at 11 weeks old: 11.14 lbs., 25 inches.

My how fast they grow. Little babies truly are amazingly mind-blowing--in the best possible way. They grow and change simply before your eyes. Dean and I swear that Noah has sprouted an inch and gained several ounces every time he wakes from a nap. It's true that they poop a lot, burp a lot, cost a lot and cry from time to time, but these seemingly pesky qualities really aren't so bad, after all--because they fall in among all of the incredible millions of other little things that go along with caring for a baby that are just simply amazing. Like . . . grasping and holding a toy, laughing, giggling, gooing and cooing, rolling over, studying a bird in a nearby tree or the nose on daddy's face, kicking and splashing in the bathtub, responding to mommy's voice . . . and doing them all for the very first time. You can see the little wheels of his young mind turning and churning, working hard to move his fist towards his mouth for a suck-fest, straining to create the look of utter concentration he wears when pooping and the glow of relief when it's successfully been dumped in the diaper.

Grandma and Grandpa Nelson just caught a glimpse of it all while visiting us for the last week and a half and the rest of our families at home in North Carolina will be able to relish in the sweet and rapid changes in our little Noah Finn beginning this Wednesday through the end of March. During that time, I am not sure how much blogging we'll be doing, but you can bet we'll still be regularly posting pictures to our flickr photo album.
