Gigantic Baby

Pippa had her 2 month doc appointment this past Friday and got a clean bill of health. She's also still huge -- 13 lbs 9.8 oz and 23 3/4 inches. That's 97th percentile for weight, 90th percentile for height, and her head circumference is 95th percentile. Crazy.

My parents have moved into their northern Maine (aka Canada) summer house finally. One of the first things they did was on Saturday go get a library card and meet the librarian -- I'm so proud. They really like her -- she told them they should go away and come back on the weekdays when the "nice" librarian is on duty, so of course they decided to only go on weekends.

Two Months Old Tomorrow

Wow, it's been almost 20 days since we posted. We're slackers, sorry. I'm still struggling w/ thrush that won't go away and some other breastfeeding issues, so I guess that's some excuse. Here are some updates on the Pipster:
*She's found her hands and LOVES to put them in her mouth
*Smiling and laughing happen all the time now
*She has certain favorite toys that she flirts with -- particularly the animals in her mobile, and a stuffed caterpillar from The Very Hungry Caterpillar book she was given (thanks, Catherine!)
*Her 0-3 onesies won't fit her much longer!!
*She's finally starting to take naps during the day (YAY!!!!) and is going longer between feedings at night (up to 4 hours of sleep at a time!!)

There are tons more photos here (click the View Pictures button and you won't have to sign in, then on the next page click View As Slideshow to see them enlarged). They're not all in focus, or even good, but they make up for it in volume :)

Lots of Updates

My parents have been visiting for the past week, so I've been slacking on the blog entries, but here are some quick updates.

* Pippa found her hands last week and now uses them to soothe herself

* At her doctor's appointment last week, she weighed 11 lbs 3 oz and 22 1/2 inches. She's 95th percentile for weight and 85th percentile for height, and 90th percentile for her head circumference.

* Saturday Pippa went to her first Durham Bulls baseball game. It was a blast, she had a great time -- well she slept through pretty much everything including her first fireworks after the game :) Got her picture taken w/ the Durham Bulls statue, danced to "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" during the 7th inning stretch, and danced to YMCA (w/ James's help).

* The exciting news today is that she's actually smiling AT us for the first time (called "social smiling"). Everyone acting very goofy to try and get the smiles going.

We've got lots of pictures from this past week that we'll get up soon.
