Annabel: 2 month check up

Annabel had her 2 month check up today:

23 1/4 inches long (95th percentile)
10 pounds 3 1/2 ounces (75th percentile)
head is 15 1/4 inches (90th percentile)

Looks like we have another big girl!

Even though she was quite a bit smaller than Annika at birth she's totally catching up. At 2 months old Annika's stats were:

23 1/2 inches long
11 pounds 7 ounces
head was 16 1/4 inches

The doctor was very impressed that Annabel gained over 3 pounds and grew almost 3 inches within a month and a half since we were there last! She's a growing and healthy girl. We really love our pediatrician too. He doesn't just look over the girls and then hand them back. He talked to Annabel, cuddled with her for a few minutes, then looked her over, cuddled her and talked to her a little more and then handed her back. Every time we go there he tells us how special little red heads are. We were also very impressed with him when we were at the hospital when Annabel was born that he remembered Annika's name (I guess he could have cheated though and looked in our chart but he seemed to just know it) since he's one of the most popular doctors in the area and I'm sure he has a ton of other patients.

And here's are little special red head:

  1. OH, she is so cute!! Our pediatrician is awesome, too. He always talks to Karina when we go in and he is super patient and never gets upset and never makes me feel stupid about anything. Elena is in the 98th percentile! Karina was at most the 75th, and then went down so now she's right at the 50th. It'll be interesting to see how she grows in comparison to Karina, but I don't want to compare them too much and create unnecessary sibling rivalry. I worry so much about that!
