2 Months Old!

Today Lauren is 2 months old! Where has the time gone? She has changed so much! Her hair is growing longer. She smiles, coos, and giggles sometimes. She hates tummy time, just like her brother. If she's not in bed by 8:15-8:30 pm she is a MESS. She's already wearing 3 month clothes and I'm having a blast dressing her up in summer skirts and shorts.

Her well baby check up was today which means we got to learn how much she's grown, which is fun, but it also means she got 3 shots, which is not fun.

Her stats today:

Weight - 11 lbs 9.6 ounces (75th percentile)

Length - 23 inches (75th percentile)

Head - 16 1/2 inches (97th percentile!!!)

She's just like her brother! At least in the head department. They have to have big craniums to hold all those brains. :) Her doctor was very happy with her strength and growth and amazed by her hair. (I've seen babies with more but I'm not complaining!) We are still having problems with congestion and I cannot get anything to come out of her nose so the doctor thinks she's having reflux. So we're trying another formula, just at night, to see if it will help. So far it's no different. We're also raising her head up when she sleeps to try to combat it but we've done that before, too. I think we'll be getting medicine for her soon. She will probably be a completely different baby, which is crazy to think about since she's already a pretty good baby as it is, even with her tummy problems.

Then came the shots. The horrible, awful shots. The nurse actually had to pause after the first one to make sure she would keep breathing. She's like me; when she's upset she holds her breath. Then...watch out! Loud scream is coming atcha! She screamed, and screamed, and screamed some more. I think it took her at least 10 minutes to actually calm down, which was much longer than it ever took Brenden. Poor little Lauren, I felt so bad for her. I gave her some Motrin when we got home and she calmed right down. At least until bedtime. 8 pm rolled around and she was ANGRY. Now she's snoozing happily on her inclined mattress.

These past 2 months have been full of super happy moments and some not so happy moments, but I wouldn't change a thing. Lauren, you complete our family and we are so very lucky to have you!

Happy 2 Month Birthday!

2 months old!
