When it came time for the doctor to check his development I mentioned that he sometimes mimics us. She stared at me for a second and then asked how. I tried to get him to reply to my WOO sound or my raspberry sounds but he wouldn't- of course. Then she goes on to tell me that repeating is a very advanced cognitive action and that at two months he wouldn't be doing that- that it is more behavior we'll see at 9 months or so. Hello!? He is a very advanced baby! Ok Ok, so I guess I should stop saying he repeats what I say.
He also got his first of many shots today. And I have to say, he was a champ. He cried a little (I nearly did too) and then settled right down. I nursed him right in the room- I heard that was a good way to help him calm down- and he dozed right off. Seriously, look at this big boy!
