Gosh, it actually has been since the last post that I downloaded our photos from the camera. And no, I didn’t do it today either. The quantity of photos taken since Amelia’s birth has definitely decreased. I’m currently sorting through the 353 photos we took in the first 13 days of her life to decide which to order. It’s crazy how the digital camera can seem to take an endless number of photos. We are still taking photos; just not as many.

Her two month well baby visit went fantastic and her pediatrician said that she’s just perfect. She holds her head up very well, is very alert, and is about to roll over. She now weighs 10 pounds 12 ounces (50th percentile) and is 23 inches long (75th percentile). Her precious little head is growing perfectly and is in the 40th percentile. She was given her first round of four different immunizations and tolerated them just fine. It really was a non-issue with a slight fever, tender thighs, and some extra sleep the next day. That was it.

Amelia really is a great and easy baby. She doesn’t even fuss when we put her down. This morning she played on her play mat all by herself for over an hour just giggling and cooing at the toys hanging over her. Of course we were both admiring her from afar, as we were trying to figure out if she knows she’s batting the toys overhead. Not quite yet, as she’s still got the uncontrolled arm jerkiness, but she’s almost there. When her arm did hit a toy, sometimes she would grip the toy. She IS perfect. We feel so blessed.

Halloween is coming! Be sure to check back to see Amelia in the cutest costume ever!
