Ainsley had her two month checkup today. There were lots of interesting things to look at, so she didn't fuss as much as last time. She weighs 12 pounds (no ounces) and is 23.5 inches long. (much to my chagrin, she'll probably be out of her 3 month clothes soon) Both measurements are in the 90th percentile. She's going to be taller than me, no doubt. :) Dr. L. says that her heart is nice and strong, her reflexes good, and that she is overall a very healthy baby. That's what we like to hear.
She also had her first round of shots today. She was very good--just a little crying, but then she fell asleep in my arms. (I was afraid that I was going to cry right along with her.) So far, so good. We'll have to keep an eye on her to make sure that she doesn't experience any side effects, but I'm not too worried about it.
Overall, this last month has been one of many new things for our little girl. She's seen both sets of grandparents, taken her first plane ride, been to her first museums, attended two graduations, stayed with a babysitter (Grandma), started taking bottles (still Mama's milk, though), and so much more. She's growing in so many amazing ways, and it seems like there's something new every day. Today she's started making this really cute noise--she looks right at me, smiles, gurgles and then makes a "goo" sound. It's heart-melting. She's still very even-tempered and only cries when there's something that needs to be taken care of.
