Coby is two months old today and has been home for over four weeks now. How time flies!
On his due date, he weighed 3.46kg and was 50cm long. This means he’s really caught up in size, which is fantastic.
He’s started smiling a lot and enjoys having floor and tummy time. He is even big enough to go in a bouncer and has little rolls on his legs, which are super cute.
