Nine Week Update

It's been a busy week between a trip up to Mount Hood, a huge party at the Ranch, and packing up our lives for a four week trip to the East Coast.

We went to see Dr. Jack today for Ada's two-month appointment. Here are her stats:
  • Weight: 11 pounds, 2 ounces (58th percentile)
  • Length: 23.75 inches (92nd percentile)
  • Head Circumference: 40cm (80th percentile)
The big surprise here was her length. The doctor actually re-measured her to double-check the nurse because she jumped from the 50th to 92nd percentile in the last seven weeks. I guess we are going to have a tall girl to go along with our tall boy! Her weight also increased more than we might have expected, which is good news. Ada handled her shots pretty well, but she has been slightly fussy and feverish this afternoon. This is normal and we just hope she is feeling better for our flight tomorrow! We do need to start giving Ada vitamin D supplements (as recommended for all breastfed babies), but other than that there's nothing much to report.

I hate to jinx it, but Ada has been sleeping much better for the past couple of weeks. She's still not a great sleeper, but it is a vast improvement over her first 7 weeks of life. Once she is asleep for the night (at sometime between 9:30 and 10:30pm), we can lay her down in either her bouncy seat or crib and she'll sleep until sometime between 2am and 4am. Then she's up for an hour so that I can feed her, change her, and soothe her back to sleep, and then she sleeps again for the rest of the night, waking up between 6:30am and 8am (usually about 3 hours after falling asleep for the second time). It really helps that she'll now sleep on her own rather than needing to be held at night. E Ben and I are both feeling more rested as a result.

Here's a funny face from yesterday.
