Two Months Old

Happy Two Month Birthday to Izumi!

She had her first check-up today; we skipped the one month check-up because she weighed in so many times her first two weeks of life.

It was a relief to find that:
she weighs 10 pounds 11 ounces (4.9 kilos),
is 23 1/2 inches (60 cm) long,
and has a 39 cm (15 inch) head.
That's the 50th percentile for head size and weight, but 90th percentile for length. Ha! Her days of scoring in the height department should be short-lived (get it, "short"...) in this family!

Just for amusement's sake, let's compare these stats to Koji at 4 weeks:
11 pounds 3 ounces (5.07 kilos)
22 inches (56 cm)
15 1/2 inch head circumference (40 cm)

We thought that Izumi would come out as a female Koji but it's not turning out that way at all! And good thing, this way is much more interesting (not to mention easier on the arms).

Wouldn't it be a shock if she got the "tall gene." :-)

Loved all the stats and Happy Two Month Birthday to you, sweet Izumi with lots of kisses.

Jamie, maybe two months is somehow a distinctive point in that I have very clear memories of both you and Laurie at two months. Indeed, a very precious time in your lives.

So beautiful. Bella baby.

How beautiful is she???!!! You go, tall woman! Keep on growing! Tower over your brother and teach him who's boss!

So glad she's doing so well. How's her belly feeling?
