2 Months!

Ellie has changed so much in so little time!  She loves to carry on conversations with you, and is smiling and laughing.  She is definitely starting to show her personality!  I think she is a very happy baby :)

I know I already did the first 2 weeks of her second month, so here are the rest of the highlights:

2 Month Stats

  • Ellie's 2 month appointment was August 13, 2012 and she was 9 weeks old
  • She weighed 11 pounds 3 ounces, was 23.5 inches long, and her head circumference was 15 inches
  • She is in the 60th percentile for weight and 90th percentile for length
  • Our pediatrician tested her leg reflexes to make sure she was putting weight on them and she did well
  • She had to get 2 shots and take an oral dose to cover her vaccinations
  • Her next appointment will be in October for her 4 month checkup and shots

2 Month Highlights

  • Notices her hands and grasps fingers (She can grab my hair very well now!) 
  • Loves kicking her feet and pushing my hands with them while lying down
  • She can put weight on her legs when you stand her up
  • Can hold her head up steady 
  • She smiles, talks (coo), and laughs when you talk and interact with her- this is my favorite part so far :)
  • She can turn her head from side to side
  • Starting to recognize mommy's voice and look for her
  • Does not enjoy bath time!  (She cries every time!)
  • She gives you warning before she cries.  I like to call this her "fussy face" because her face looks like she is going to cry but she has not started to scream yet! LOL.  So she gives me warning so I can usually calm her down before she cries.
  • She wears size 1 diapers and has outgrown newborn clothes. She now wears 0-3 month clothes
  • She showed her Aunt Becca she can roll her tongue!
  • She found her thumb and started sucking it
  • Blows bubbles
  • At night she sleeps for 6-8 hours (I am very thankful to have such a great sleeper!)
  • She is starting to sleep less during the day, only taking a few short naps throughout the day
