Sumo Wrestler?

We had our very first doctor's appointment/visit at Randy's clinic today for Alayna's 2 month well-baby check up. I'm proud to say that she is growing well. Here are her latest statistics:

2 Months
Weight: 13 lbs. 8 oz. (wearing a lightweight onesie and lightly sprinkled diaper)
Length: 23"
Head circumference: 16"

1 Month
Weight: 11 lbs. 1 oz.
Length: 23"
Head circumference: no measurement taken

So accounting for the onesie and diaper, our little girl probably weighs 13 lbs....this is a weight gain of around 2 lbs during the last month (on a diet of breastmilk only). I'm not really sure how/why the length stayed the same from last month's measurements. I think an error occurred somewhere, either with today's measurements or last month, but I know that she's gained length...we've now graduated to just about all 3-6 month clothes because the 0-3 month sizes are too short.

Alayna is cooing a lot and is just all smiles, especially right after a feeding. The initial nighttime sleep is lasting anywhere from 5-7 hours and then every 3-4 hours after we're getting decent sleep. I'm really enjoying this time of her development....she is constantly entertained with watching Josiah (and he likes it, too, knowing that she's watching him). I'm looking forward to hearing giggles.

**Oh, and just a side note....her eyes are still blue/brown**

Huh, that's funny. They made us strip down Lucero to take her weight. Either way it looks like yall have got a healthy baby.
