2 Month Update

Wednesday, July 06, 2011

Gianna had her 2 month check up today and she is doing great! She now weighs 10 pounds and 13 ounces, and is 23 inches long! She's a tall baby... in the 75th percentile for height and 50th percentile for weight! After smiling at the nurse who weighed and measured her, Gia decided to show Dr. Gary how good her lungs are by screaming for about 10 or 15 minutes. Dr. Gary said we definitely have our hands full with a strong-willed child! It was good to talk to him about how to regulate her sleeping schedule and naps. Since we are moving soon, I don't think we'll try to get on the schedule yet, but once we are in our new place, we will definitely be choosing to fight the battle of an earlier bedtime. As it is right now, Gia does NOT want to be in her crib until 11 pm or later! Momma needs an earlier bedtime! Everything else looks great with Gia, too. We are just so blessed and insanely in love with her. Sometimes, when she naps during the day, I just want to wake her up to play with her because I miss her! (Don't worry- I resist the urge. How many times have I heard, "Don't wake a sleeping baby!") We've decided to delay Gia's vaccination schedule and Dr. Gary was on board with this, and gave me some things to think about. I wish we could stay with him after we move... but a 2 hour drive is a little much unfortunately. I am praying we will find a pediatrician for Gia that we respect and trust as much as him.

We are going to miss living with our family, too though. Gia loves her PopPop and Gram. Last night they took Gia on a walk with Aunt Audrey, and I think she really liked it! Gia is also finding her hands right now. It is so amazing to see her discover that new thing... the awe and wonder that comes across her face as she studies the foreign appendages is simply amazing. Like nothing I have ever seen before. I can't wait for a lifetime of rediscovering this world through her eyes!!!
