I had the pleasure of taking Lauren in for her 2-month well baby appointment yesterday. The longer I'm a mama, the more I appreciate the difference between well and sick child visits to the doctor and am mindful of what a blessing it is to have a thriving infant--yet again.
Proving she will have no trouble holding her own with her big brothers, Lauren measured 23" long (75th percentile) and weighed 13 lbs. 3 oz. (95th!). Like they were, she is healthy . . . and huge. She smiled and cooed for everyone who talked to her, even the nurse who administered her multiple immunizations. Also like her brothers, she took the (two) shots with only a little crying.
The last couple of weeks have been particularly sweet with Lauren. She's very smiley and coos, especially after nursing and when she hears the voices (laughing, yelling, singing, whatever) of her big brothers. Dare I say she's mostly done with the evening fussiness and that time of day is a lot easier than it used to be. I have quite a bit more to say about this past week, as Matt returned to work, but I'll save that for another post. Here's one of my favorite recent photos of my beautiful, healthy girl.
