We had our two-month doctor's visit today. We have a big girl. Our "little" Naiya weighs 12 lbs. 3 oz. and is now 24 inches long. That puts her in the 90% range for weight and the 100% range for height (whatever that means). The doctor said that everything is coming along fine. She has the social smile going on, she tracks well with her eyes, has good reflexes and strong muscle tone in her abdomen (keep an eye out for the six-pack.) We thought she had a bruise above her bottom but it turns out it’s some kind of birth mark (which is great because it's been there for a month and we were starting to worry.) It might go away the doctor said. Not a big deal if it doesn't. Her head is getting a little flat on one side so the doctor also said to work on having her turn more toward her left. This means laying her in her crib in the direction opposite that which we normally do and generally "forcing" her to favor the side she usually doesn't. Other than that all is well with all of us. Naiya has slept as long as six hours during the night but generally does more like four. Last night was an anomaly. She woke up every hour from about 5:30 to 8:30 this morning. I think she had some bad gas.
