Molly's 2 month 3 months

I'm only a month late posting Molly's stats for her 2 month check up. Better late than never, I guess!

Length - 23 inches - 71st percentile

Weight - 11lbs 2.5oz - 55th percentile

Head circumference - 15 inches - 29th percentile

Diapers - size 1

Clothes - 0-3 months, 3 months

Sleep - 3 naps per day - 1 hour to 2 hours each

Bedtime - 7PM - sleeping until 1:30 or sometimes until 3:30, then back to sleep until about 7AM. She has slept through the night several times, though, and is getting more consistent with that!

Fun Facts about Molly to date:

Molly is a very happy and laid back baby. She loves her Baby Einstein play mat - especially the octopus! - and her swing. She smiles a ton - especially at Daddy when he gets home from work. She's cooing a lot and, again, especially when Daddy gets home from work! It's so cute - it's like she's trying to tell him all about her day! She wakes up super smiley and sweet, unless you wake her up before she's ready - and then she takes a few minutes before she'll smile at you. She pokes out her bottom lip when she cries...and arches her back when she stretches. She is wonderful in the car and really likes her mirror that plays music. She's discovered her hands and how tasty they are and is grabbing on to just about everything. Just in the past few days, she has started noticing her feet...I bet they will soon taste delicious, too! She enjoys sitting in her bumbo and has really started showing interest in stuffed animals. We recently introduced her to her Jumparoo and she's totally intrigued with that! She really likes music and sleeps better with background noise. She is still sleeping swaddled, but is busting her arms and legs out most nights. However, she rests better swaddled - and if we don't swaddle her when we put her down, she has a dance party and wakes herself up! I have a video of this that I need to post! I think Molly's favorite thing to do is to take a bath! I am looking forward to taking her to the pool in the evenings and seeing how she likes it - she really seems to enjoy the water!

Here is Molly on her 3 month birthday:

Molly 2 Months...

Man! I have been such a slacker at posting lately!

In the past month, Molly has been to the beach, Charlotte, had her first vaccines and started smiling!

First, we went to Orange Beach, Alabama where Molly met her (great) Uncle Marlin, (great) Aunt Lori, cousins Ian and Taylor, (great) Aunt Dottee and (great) Uncle Bob. She was so wonderful and had a great time! Here we are at Aunt Dottee and Uncle Bob's house:

At cousin Ian's soccer game (one of my FAVORITE pictures so far!!!)...

I will have to get some pictures from Charlotte from Rob's mom...but Molly had a great time visiting with Aunt Kelly and Uncle Jeff (and Ann and Tom!).

Statistics from Molly's 2 month check point...

75% in height

55% in weight

4 vaccines - such a sad little girl for about 48 hours afterwards. She slept a TON and had an upset tummy for a few days.

Tomorrow is Molly's 3 month birthday and I am home from work. We will enjoy our birthday day and have a little party just the 2 of us!!!
