Two Months Old

Well, here we are!  Bronwen is two months old and full of personality. She "passed" her two-month well-baby exam today with flying colors. She's 10 lbs 11 oz, 21.75 inches long, with a head circumference of 15 inches. 

She has a small, tan birthmark just under her left eye (not visible in the photos) which has surfaced over the last few weeks. The doc thinks it is too early to tell if it will be permanent or not.

These are smiles, above and below. She gurgles and coos and tries very hard to speak and laugh and giggle. She surprises herself with little gaspy shriek noises.

Today we had a good 10- or 15-minute exchange of goo-goos and smiles while at the doctor's office. The nurse thought it was pretty funny. At one point I said "ooh!" and Bronwen repeated it and immediately started to (try to) laugh. So much fun!

She is still totally laid back. And sweet. She goes with the flow. Sleeping on Papa's chest is still her happy place.

She's quite flexible; does not yet need to be in a special place to sleep or eat. Here, at the Chili Fest on Skidaway last weekend, the Gutsy Dad is feeding her a bottle of breastmilk with his chin so that he can also enjoy some chili. Superdad at work. Super baby, too.

Here she is with Mama on a particularly chilly day.  (It's in the 70s again now, so looking at this picture makes me feel overheated.)  I've been enjoying trying out different slings with her.  She seems to love them all.  This one is a Moby wrap. Makes her feel as light as a feather.

Here she is in the Hotsling I'm borrowing from a friend. This one is easy and so very snuggly. Perfect for our twice-daily walks to the bus stop.

Last but not least, here is our Grinny Grinnerson:

Until next month!

Lovely photos and update. I love using a sling with Isla. I couldn't quite sort it out with Angus and didn't have a selection to borrow. Isla and I still use a ring sling which we love as we can cuddle and talk whilst out exploring or shopping. I know she has appreciated the reassurance at times of being close and not dislocated in a buggy. I will be sorry when she is too big to carry like that!
