Update!

Chris and I took Lorelai to the Dr today for her 2 month check up. I cant believe she is already more than 2 months old! I see other people's babies and it honestly feels like she is so big already! Granted, she started out a couple pounds heavier than most of the babies i've seen, but still her time of being little seemed gone within a couple weeks! At her appt today she was 13 1/2 pounds... gaining weight rapidly. And she has grown 2 inches since the last visit! She is the 99.4 percentile for height and the 97.6 percentile for weight so she is a big girl! We asked the dr about her birth mark on her head because it seemed like it was getting bigger/darker. He said it is a hemangioma which is a benign tumor or blood vessels (dont worry its totally no big deal!), basically he said it could keep getting bigger until she was 1 and then it will get smaller and go away in her toddler years. I googled images of hemangiomas and i will tell you we are lucky! they can be ridiculously big and in far worse places... eye lids, the tip of the nose, the tongue etc. Here is a video of what she looks like lately... she is getting really strong and can support her weight sitting or standing but is still a little wobbly of course.
