Update: I forgot to add some picture collages last night - they're in the post now! :-)
Whew. How time flies. Baby Caroline is already a month old! In her first month she learned to bring her fist to her mouth, and started to show a little bit of head control. She lost her umbilical cord at eight days old and started wearing cloth diapers around three weeks old. By her two week check-up, Caroline weighed 9 lbs, 9.5 oz. The studio where we take mom and baby yoga no longer has an infant scale, so I can't tell you what she weighed at one month, but she is nothing if not an enthusiastic eater. Her thighs and wrists are super-chunky, and I would guess she weighs at least 11 pounds at six weeks.
This Friday, Ellie turned two-and-a-half! I made her half a cake to celebrate being 30 months old. (This isn't something we will normally celebrate, but with all the attention and time that Caroline has gotten these past few weeks, I wanted to make sure that she was still feeling special.)
