February 28, 2012

Ella is 8 weeks old today!  We went to the doctor this morning and she now weighs 12.3 lbs and is 23.25 inches long.  She is in the 90th percentile for height and 80th for weight.  She is a growing girl!  She has already started outgrowing her 0-3 month clothing because she is so tall.  Everything is still going very well and the doctor said she looks great.  She had her first set of vaccines today and I finally heard her "pain cry" and saw her first real tear fall down her cheek.  It was heartbreaking!  But lucky for me she forgave me right away because she already had smiles for me when we got home.

She is smiling and talking all the time now and is really trying to figure out how to get her thumb in her mouth.  She constantly explores her hands and tries to figure out how they work.  We work on tummy time a little every day and she is very strong and can hold her head up and push off the ground a little for a few seconds at a time.  She also likes trying to stand up.  I'm amazed at how strong her legs are.  Now I know why it hurt so much when she was kicking during pregnancy!

She is a sweet little angel and Josh and I couldn't be more happy or proud of our little girl!
