Two Month Old Newborn

It's official folks. I have a two month old newborn! Paige's weight and height are that of what a newborn baby's should be. I can't complain because she is healthy and growing. She loves to eat and wants to constantly do so. Thank goodness for supplementing, or else she would starve to death (or so she would think!).
On Monday the girls went in for their check ups and shots! :( I was expecting Paige's shots and had given her Tylenol before we went, but I was not expecting shots for Addison. Addison was such a big girl, climbed on the table, laid down for her shots, then she started screaming like a banshee! She asked me afterwards when we were driving home in the car "Why are their needles so sharp and pointy? My shot at home isn't sharp and pointy?" I couldn't help but smile and laugh under my breath. (Addison has a play doctors kit that comes with a shot, stethoscope, bandage, thermometer and blood pressure cuff.)
Paige also cried after her shots, but that was also expected. All day and evening, she would start screaming whenever her legs were touched. Poor little girl.

Paige - 2 Months
Weight: 8 Pounds - 3%
Height: 21 Inches - 9%

Addison - 3 Years
Weight: 30 Pounds 2 Ounces - 70%
Height: 38 Inches - 75%

Paige is starting to:
Smile
Coo
Respond to voices and noises
Loves her daddy and will turn her head to find him whenever she hears his voice
Loves sitting in her bouncer
Sleep approximately 6 hours at night between feedings
Hold her head up longer and longer (She is a little behind on that one, but not for a lack of trying. When I put Paige on her tummy for tummy time, she usually just ends up falling asleep or she will lay her head down and just cry.)

I love both of my beautiful girls and am so grateful that they are both healthy and growing strong!

She is bigger than I guessed! I'm glad she is growing so well. That is encouraging to a mother. Congratulations on two, beautiful, and healthy girls!

Paige is growing so fast! She is such a little charmer! Poor Addi, I don't like those sharp, pointy things either!
