2 Months

Vanessa turned two months three days ago. She had a doctors appointment last week and her weight is 11 lbs 9 oz (64th percentile), length 23.5 inches (93rd percentile) and head circumference 38.7 cm (72nd percentile). Her percentiles went down and I was concerned about the head circumference but the doctor assured me not to worry and we'll see where things are at 4 months. It's not that I'm comparing her to other babies and basing my concern on the percentile thing, it's that her growth slowed down. Her head barely grew and that freaks me out. She is so alert and coo-y and smiley and seems to be improving on coordination and head strength so that is the most important thing to me. The doctor also felt her hips at the end of the check up and said her left hip possibly felt a bit loose. So we scheduled an appointment with a pediatric orthopedic, then were told they wanted her to have an ultrasound before seeing the specialist but the first opening for an ultrasound was October 12th. I scheduled that then they called me and said they were going to see if the doctor wanted her to come in anyway without an ultrasound or if they can get her an earlier ultrasound. So we're just waiting but I am not too concerned with that and expect everything to check out okay.

So overall everything is still amazing and I am so happy! I love this little baby so much my heart wants to burst!
