Last week Norah had her 2 month check up and the Doctor said she is looking great. She is now 13 lbs, 4 oz, and is 23 inches long. I’m not sure of everything the Doctor checked for, but he was happy with how Norah is doing.
Norah is still eating like a champ (hence the 13 lbs, 4 oz) and has finally started taking something that resembles a nap during the day. As a result, D & H have finally had something that resembles dinner over the last few weeks. She’s also been smiling and cooing and making little baby sounds that are very, very cute. She likes to wave her arms and kick her feet like crazy, though she can’t really get anywhere yet. She looks like she’s trying to roll over, but she hasn’t had a lot of success yet. That’s okay with me – I’m still hoping she stays little for awhile and some of those big milestones are a little scary to me. You should hear some of my conversations with D:
D: What did Norah do today?
H: She kicked her feet and twisted her legs to the side like she wanted to roll over.
D: But she didn’t roll?
H: No, she didn’t roll….. (bursting into sobs)… she’s going to roll someday! Then she’ll sit, and then she’ll crawl, and then she’ll walk…. She’s going to get married someday and I’m going to get old and have grandkids and then someday I’ll die!… (sob, sob, sob)
D: So, uh, she didn’t roll over?
Anyway, Norah is doing well. Here are a few recent pictures of her:
