Gratuitous baby pictures

Pequita's new love? Corn on the cob. She gnaws on the whole thing joyously, getting a fair amount in her mouth in the process. This is our best tool to keep her happy while we eat things she cannot share.
She's also finally taking more interest in books as well. She has always been excited to see the pictures, but is starting to notice pages and (I think) expect the words.

Here we are at Monito's 2 week wellness checkup. You can barely tell that I haven't showered in 3 days. Grandma and Pequita stayed in the waiting room playing and watching other kids play while I took Monito back for his exam. In one week, he has gained a whole pound and grown a quarter inch, making him 10 lbs 3.2 oz and 22.5 inches long. He is firmly in the 95th percentile in both categories. Yay for good fatty breast milk! I absolutely believe that comfort nursing Pequita in the months before Monito's birth primed my pump and helped my flow and quality.

And a comparison in size and alertness. Pequita at 8.3 months old is so beautifully plump. We call her the Hunk-a Hunk-a burning baby love. We'll see if Monito (2 weeks exactly in the photo below) stays lanky or if he follows in his sister's footsteps.
