Two Months. (and ten days)

Monday morning Caroline had her two-month well check.  I am so pleased to report that at two months (and ten days) old, Caroline weighed 14 lbs, 3 oz and was 25 inches long!!  She is in the 96th percentile for weight and the 98th for height.  Woot!  I love a good chunky baby.  The pediatrician had nothing to say, really, other than to keep up the good work.

In her second month, our sweet little baby started sleeping through the night, sucking her thumb, and babbling up a storm.  She loves to smile and coo and goo with anyone who will look at her.  She lost most of her hair around five weeks of age, but has grown back quite the fuzzy head since then!  I think her hair is going to be thick, rather than the fine flyaway hair Ellie has.  She loves to kick at the cow that hangs above her playmat, and babble at her reflection in the mirror.  Caroline also has not met a pair of socks she can't kick off her feet :-)  She turns to voices she recognizes and lights up whenever she sees Ellie.

Caroline met her Grandpa and Estelle in her second month!  Carl and Estelle drove in for a weekend and were pleased to meet the littlest (possible) red head. 

Ellie continues to be the best little sister, already reporting on every little thing she does, and taking pride whenever she elicits a smile or wears a matching outfit.
