Happy 2 months!!

Today is August 27th - Jill's 2 month birthday! Here are some pictures of her from this week.
She loves to wear bows. And they look really cute on her. The bigger the better I'm learning. I think her eyes are so pretty.

She gets fussy sometimes - like when we are trying to make her stand up for a fun picture whilst her brother is bouncing around and bopping into her. Yep, I just used the word whilst.
She loves to sleep in her bows. Her choice not mine.
This picture is from this morning at the doctors office where our thoughts were confirmed: Yep! She is a chubber... here are her 8 WEEK/2 MONTHstats:

Weight: 14lbs 4oz (97th percentile)
Length: 23.5 inches (90th percentile)
Head: 40cm (75th percentile)

Just so you can see how much she has grown - here were her stats at her last appt when she was 2 WEEKS old:

Weight: 10lbs 3 oz (97th percentile)
Length: 22.75 inches (97th percentile)
Head 27.5 cm (75th percentile)

And here BIRTH stats were: (I realized I never posted these either)

Weight: 8lbs 9oz
Length: 21 inches
Head: I don't remember off hand - I need to look it up.

Other things about Jill - - she started giving us little smiles around 6 weeks and she coos a little bit too! It's the cutest thing to hear her little voice. We think she is probably going to be more serious than Charlie though because sometimes she looks very pensive and just....serious. We'll see if that sticks as she grows older. She gets a little worried sometimes when her brother comes around - her eyebrows furrow a bit. He's unpredictable - - sometimes you get a sweet kiss and other times you get a bonk on the head. You never know.

She also sleeps like a champ. At about 6.5 weeks old, she stopped getting up multiple times at night. Generally, she'll only wake up once to eat for about ten minutes and then goes right back to sleep on her own. And some nights she'll even skip that and sleep until 5 or 6. Such a dream! Charlie was not that easy at this age. She still sleeps in our room in her cradle. She is so quiet, I really don't mind having her in there. We love our baby girl. :-)
