Claire hit the two month mark on New Year's Day. It was celebrated with a mild cold, pink eye, and thrush. That last one's a fun one for nursing moms, let me tell ya. Athlete's foot on your nipples anyone?
Anywho, we visited the pediatrician today for her check-up, and here's how she measures up:
Height: 23 in - 75%
Weight: 10 lbs 13 oz - 50%
Head circumference: 39 cm - 50%
Her weight was in the 75% just four weeks ago - the doctor was a little concerned and wants to "keep an eye on that". I can't tell you how this compares to Paige at this age, because I don't remember. But if she's anything like Paige (which, there's a good chance she's not - just look 4 posts below for evidence), Claire's weight percentile will just keep dropping and dropping until she hovers somewhere around 2% and I avoid well-child check-ups like the plague.
