Little man had his 2-month Well Baby checkup this week and he's on the small side weight wise (11 lbs., 5 oz., 18th percentile), but he's long (24.5 in. long, 94th percentile). His head measures 39.5 in., which puts him in the 52nd percentile, about average they say. So he's long and lean, basically. We'll see if we can pack some more meat on his bones between now and his next doctor's visit in October!
We recently returned from a trip to Washington state to visit family and friends, and Mark also took care of some business meetings in Seattle. Everyone enjoyed meeting Blake and playing with Kenley. Here are a few pictures from our trip...
We spent most of our time with Mark's family in the Arlington/Marysville area.

One morning we got up super early to catch a ferry from Anacortes to Orcas Island. We left the house just after 5 a.m. for the hour-long drive from Marysville to Anacortes to get to the ferry dock an hour early for the 7:20 a.m. sailing. It was a long day, but it was a fun adventure with the family.

Next up, the kids and I will be traveling with my mom to Pennsylvania to visit my extended family. Mark will stay home and hold down the fort while we're away. My next post will include a recap of that trip. For being only two months old, Blake sure is racking up those air miles! ;-)
