Lucas' social skills are really blossoming at week 8. He's smiling, laughing, yelling, and cooing all the time. He's tracking our movements with his eyes--especially his sister. His eyes always get a little bigger when he sees Olivia come close, partially in fear and partially in delight. He holds his head up well and prefers to be held and carried facing out. The pediatrician said he has phenomenal neck strength and is well ahead of his milestone. Lucas is very attached to his mommy and fusses when he can't see me or doesn't hear my voice in the room. I'm flattered, but Charm City Daddy is annoyed. tee he he. He's also wearing 3 month clothing and still has the most explosive bowels I have ever seen or heard in a baby. Even at 8 weeks to audibles still make us giggle.
Here are Lucas' 8-week stats:
Height- 23 inches (50th percentile)
Weight-12lbs 4 oz. (50th percentile)
Head Circumference: 39.5 cm (50th percentile)
