Happy Baby!

These may not be the greatest pictures, but we managed to capture the tail-end of a smile! Iain was in quite a happy mood this morning, until the camera came out, at which point he'd had nearly enough of the smiling game.

By the way, he had his 2 month check-up, yesterday. He is a hair short of 24 inches and weighs 12 lbs. That puts him in the 95% for height and 50% for weight, for babies a month older than him (according to his adjusted age)!!! He's off the charts for height and 95% for weight for 1 month babies. You've come a long way, Iain!
For those of you that read my last post, you'll recall that we had quite a beauitful, snow-covered April 1. Well, here we are, 3 days later. It is currently 59 degrees. This is the view out of our kitchen window (please pardon the screen).
Here is a close-up. I have to admit, this makes me laugh: shorts and snow in the background. :)

If I were to show the shorts pictures to Romans, they would pass out - not because of the shorts, per se, but shorts in April?!! It could be 80 degrees here (it's not), and they would still be appalled at the idea of people shedding their winter gear so prematurely. One of our friends was relating how many appalled looks he got last weekend (when it was, er, warmer than 59 degrees) and he was wandering around in short sleeves without (gasp!) his winter parka on.

what a cutie!! and red hair??!!

the shorts and snow are a good look :) although I may side with the Romans on not shedding my winter apparel quite so fast- after months of being covered, my white legs may wait for it to be a bit warmer before blinding anyone in the vicinity...

Heehee :) Mark prefers to call Iain's hair "golden". But yes, it appears we've got a redheaded cutie. :)
