Peewee-pint is NOT so Peewee...
Peewee-pint is following VERY closely in the footsteps of his brothers, especially Half-pint. Although Peewee-pint was about 3/4 of a pound larger than Half-pint was at birth, their 2 month well check stats were nearly identical. At two months, Half-pint weighed in at 12 lbs, 13 oz; while Peewee-pint tipped the scales at 12 lbs, 12.4 oz. (90 %ile) Both measured 23 inches long (75 %ile) and head circumference (this is a BIG deal around here) was the 97%-ile for both boys. I knew Peewee-pint was about 12 lbs before the official weigh in (Moms just know things like that), but I was a little surprised he was closer to 13 lbs. His jiggling jowls remind me of baby Half-pint; and his cheeks are so fat he has a difficult time opening his eyes very wide. His Aunts (C3 and C4, mostly) loved pushing around the extra fat padding on his forehead, and the back of his head. He's so patient, he doesn't fuss when we're playing with all his rolls (you should see his inner thighs!).

Peewee-pint is quick to smile, but doesn't laugh or giggle much yet. His big brothers are great entertainment to him and a huge help to me if I just need a few minutes before I pick him up (to feed him, etc.). He gets pretty chatty at times, especially in the evenings after the big boys go to bed, and also with the zebra toy that hangs from the handle of his infant carrier.
Peewee-pint is more and more fun every day, especially now that most nights are nearly free from baby feedings! He usually just gets up once, sometime between 4:30 and 6:30...all that chub is good for sleeping all night!!!
