Elizabeth is two months old!
Elizabeth had her two-month checkup Tuesday afternoon. Everything is looking great. Here are her stats:
Length: 23 1/4" (83rd percentile)
Weight: 11 lbs, 4 oz (63rd percentile)
Head circumference: 37.5 cm (19th percentile, which doc assures me is fine!)
In comparison, Ben's 2-month stats were:
Length: 24.75" (95th percentile, about the size of a four-month-old per the doctor)
Weight: 14 lbs., 8 oz. (97th percentile)
Head circumference: 40.8 cm (75th percentile)
In the past few days Elizabeth has started smiling and cooing, which is adorable. She is generally a mellow baby unless she is hungry or you're not holding her in the exact position she prefers at that very moment. She seems to like being snuggled in one of our wraps, particularly if I'm moving around while wearing her. She isn't a huge fan of extended tummy time but does hold her head up well. Her eyes are starting to look lighter so we're waiting to see if they'll turn green like mine. We looked back at Ben's photos and his eyes were already brown by this age.
We are looking forward to getting out a little and enjoying this crazy beautiful week of weather - estimates are 80s for the rest of the week!
