Two month checkup

This past week, Sara Beth went in for her two month checkup.  As part of the checkup she had to get four different shots.  Neither of us slept well the night before she went in.  Of course, she ended up just fine after she had a chance to calm down.  Her measurements are now 24.25 inches long and 13 pounds 2 oz, which puts her rate of growth at around one inch and pound every two weeks.  This puts her in the 96th percentile for height and 95th in weight.  

Growing up, I was always off the charts in the 99th percentile, so it looks like she wont ever be taller than me, but at the rate she is going, she'll be taller than Heather by the time she is two.   She can (sort of) stand upright, as long as we keep her balanced, and she comes up to the bottom of my knee.  So I guess this is right around the official "knee high" stage.

She has outgrown all her newborn clothes completely and only a few of the 3 month outfits still work for her.  We purchased some 6-9 month size onesies, but I think they must run a little small as they fit her right now.

SaraB has officially learned to turn herself over.  We woke up at 4 in the morning to her crying.  When we turned on the baby monitor, we could see her face down on her mattress.  Apparently, she turned herself over and then got stuck.  The next day, she did it again at nap time.  Below is a picture of her trying to get her duck.

And here is one of her getting ready to watch some football.

Wow, she sounds like a big baby! I put a box of size 1-2 diapers under your desk but you might just want to take a few of them home and if they won't fit her, we can give them to Stacey.
