Maggie's 2 Months

Last week I took Maggie in for her 2 month check-up. It was awful. She cried for so long after her shots, I thought she'd never stop. Wyatt never cried that long. I think Wyatt was much more laid back than Maggie and he still is to an extent. As far as measurements go, Maggie is a healthy "little" girl. I knew she was growing, but I was surprised at how much.

To put it in perspective, here are Wyatt's measurements from his 2 month check-up:

Height: 25 1/4 in. (97th %)
Weight: 13 lbs. 5 oz. (75th %)
Head: 16 1/2 in. (90th %)

It wasn't until his 4 month check-up that he was off the charts. We all know how big he is now! So here are Maggie's 2 month stats:

Height: 24 1/4 in. (97th %)
Weight: 14 lbs. 12 oz. (above 97th %)
Head: 16 1/4 in. (95th %)

So she weighs more, but she's shorter. However, the percentiles are the same for the height because boys are generally taller. I think she's decided she needs to grow quickly so her size might protect her from her brother?

At 2 months old, Maggie is awake 2-3 times a day and she smiles a lot! She's wearing 3-6 months size clothes and her hair appears to be strawberry-blond to auburn depending on the lighting! Her big brother adores her and loves to love on her every chance he gets. We are so blessed by both of our babies!

Now for some 2 month pictures. I took these on Mother's Day.

Oh she is a happy girl!
