2 Month Check-up

Dear Autumn,

It's hard to believe that you are already two months old. At your wellness check today the doctor confirmed what we suspected - that you are perfect. You are physically and developmentally right on track. At one point the doctor gasped and scared me a little but then went on and on about how amazing it was that you were staring at your fists and holding your head up at your age. She said it was very rare that such a young baby could focus on her fists and track them back and forth. Your stats are:

Weight: 10.74 lbs (49th percentile)
Height: 22.7 in (65th percentile)
Head: 15 in (34th percentile)

You are a sweet baby, Autumn. You love to smile and interact. You coo like a little dove and it's fun to have "conversations" with you as you respond to us talking to you. You are constantly trying to sit up, working your little ab muscles as hard as you can. You are constantly in motion and already at 6 weeks you fell, inching your way off of the couch. I'm sorry that I left you there, but you're just tiny and not supposed to be able to move yet. You also have very long feet and it's nearly impossible to find shoes and socks that fit you because if they're narrow enough they're too short, but if they're long enough for your feet they're just too loose.

When I feed you or lay down beside you, you will grab my arm or finger as firmly as you can. You love to make sure I am close enough to touch and if I'm not, you'll occasionally open one of your eyes just wide enough to peek and make sure I'm still there. You have the sweetest little spirit about you and the most beautiful and expressive big blue eyes. You have a ton of hair, but because it's dark and thick in the back and really fine and fair on top, you look like a balding accountant. You're the most darling little girl I've ever seen and we couldn't adore you more.
