Sonia is 2 months old!

Sonia and I just got back from her two month well-baby visit to the doctor, and everything looks great! Here are her stats:
  • She weighs 8 lbs 11 oz (7th percentile)
  • She is 21" long (8th percentile)
  • Her head circumference is 37.5 cm (19th percentile)
Her "percentiles" are all on the low side because really, she's only 5 weeks past her due date but she's being compared to other babies who are, on average, 2 whole months past their due date.

The doctor said that she looks great, and we didn't really have any problems to discuss. Because of her size, the doctor said that Sonia probably won't sleep through the night until she is 4 or 5 months old. Sonia got 3 shots and an oral vaccination, and she did so well! Not much squalling at all. Her 4 month well-baby visit will be on Monday, September 14th. I can't wait to see what she'll weigh then!

Sosi is such a great kid! She can go about 5 hours in between feedings at night (she does that about once every other night), she's loooooving her playmat time, she watches the cats very curiously, and she's holding her head up very well! I'm considering shaving my head because she keeps trying to pull out fistfulls of my hair (ow!). Sometimes, she has trouble sleeping because she's gassy (no, I don't eat a lot of dairy, and yes, I avoid the classically gas-inducing foods-- mostly because I don't like them in the first place!). But overall, she is a fabulous little baby! If you haven't already met her, we can't wait until you do!

During a visit to ABN AMRO, Sonia got some cuddles from JLo while Michelle fed her daughter, Abby, who is 4 weeks younger than Sonia:


The picture quality isn't all that great, but during the ABN AMRO visit, I finally got a picture one of her silly grins! Don't you love how her little shorts have scootched up so that they are right up under her armpits? She looks like a little Urkel from "Family Matters".....

8lbs 11?! How did that happen! Well done Sonia! Must have been the cupcakes...

I know! She went from maaaaaaybe 8 pounds one week to closing in on 9 pounds the next! I think I underestimated her weight when we were at ABN. But I'll bet the red velvet cupcake helped!

Erin - The Tennessee Stringers will put $50 in Sonia's college account if you shave your head and post for the world to see!

In addition, Charlie told me that she wants to bet $25 towards Sonia's college account that MSU beats ND this year. Does Sonia care to take that bet?

Hmmmm.... I don't know if I want to take the bet of ND beating MSU in football. ND has broken my heart for the last few years.... How about we bet on hockey?
