Stella's 2 Month Checkup

So I must blog about this before I forget, since I haven't made any progress on that baby book, have I? I mean, I guess I could be doing it right now...
So we had Stella's 2 month checkup today and she is a superstar! She's doing great. She's 23 inches, weighs 11lbs, 9.6oz, and her head circumference is 38.5 centimeters. She slipped from 90th to 75th percentile on height, but the doctor doesn't worry about that because it could just be due to the nurse not stretching her out all the way. Her weight stayed steady at 75th percentile and her head circumference is still 50th. The doctor said we should pat ourselves on the back, since we're obviously doing great with breast feeding since she's gaining weight just as she should be. Yay!
The doctor also said that she is holding her head up like a 4 month old and in fact said she was, "awesome." It was really cute hearing our little Indian doctor use the word "awesome." Stella behaved beautifully for all the doctor's poking and prodding and actually cried when the doctor left! I think she missed her:) She didn't get her vaccines today because they were out of one of them and we decided to give her all 3 at once rather than have the poor thing go through the pain twice!
This is the first picture taken of just Stella and I (with me not in a nightgown). She's 8 weeks, 1 day. I'm just 2 weeks away from 29, eek!
Also, this blog is breaking my husband's heart, but I feel like visitors do not want to hear me ramble about my baby.
I'm sorry I have such a lame title for my blog. I couldn't think of anything and wanted to get started right away!

Why is Tim upset about the blog? I love this! I can never comment properly on the other one. It doesn't get along with firefox. Now I can stalk you much more often. :)

Oh, and by the way, Stella is so cute! Stupid me, I forgot to say that before. What is she wearing? Is that one of the Goth onesies I've been hearing about?

I love you and I love Stella! When are we going to see you? :)

Glad you have a pretty blog now!

Stella is just gorgeous and she looks so much like you! Best of luck to all of you!
PS - you don't know me, but I stalk most of Kate's family and friends through their blogs :)
