Mary Elizabeth - 2 month stats
Mary Elizabeth had her two month appointment this week with the doctor. She did great!!! She now weighs 8 pounds, 13 ounces and is 21 1/2 inches long - Way to go ME!! She is starting to smile now, and is very alert for longer periods of time. She is always scanning the room, looking at her Mommy and Daddy, big brother or at the curtains. She is still eating every 3 hours during the day and every 3-4 hours at night - I am hoping we start to go longer at night now that we have put on some lbs! She loves her activity mat and her pacifier (just like Benjamin!) and enjoys being outside. I am so blessed to have such a beautiful, healthy baby girl to add to our family. Benjamin is beginning to interact (without being prompted) with ME - he will lie on the floor with her and kiss her head...he wants to sit in the same chair with us while I am feeding her, and he LOVES to give her the paci when it falls out of her mouth. Also, whenever we leave the house, Ben always reminds me to "get Mary Elizabeth, Mommy" (as if I would leave her:).
