Big girls don’t cry

…except when they get four shots and an oral vaccine. Anya had her 2 months check-up at the pediatrician today, and the doctor said she is in perfect health. She gained about 2 lbs in the last month, bringing her weight up to 12 lbs, 7 oz, and she finally grew in length – she’s now 23 inches long. She’s in the 90th percentile for weight and the 75th percentile for height. She’s still a BIG girl.

In fact, she’s so big that at 6 weeks old I had to start putting away all of her newborn outfits and some of her 0-3 month clothes. Now, at 8 weeks, she’s nearly grown out of size 1 diapers and she’s already able to wear some of her 3-6 month clothes. I’ve had to put away a lot of her 0-3 month clothes. She’s only able to gain 2 1/2 more lbs before she’ll be too big for the bassinet, so at her current rate she’ll outgrow it by 3 1/2 months old.

She may be getting bigger, but at least I’m getting smaller. When I started putting away her clothes at 6 weeks, I also put away all of my maternity clothes! I can fit into most of my pants and skirts (the main exception being the majority of my jeans) and many of my winter tops fit, since they were a little bulkier to begin with. I may have a problem in the spring, since I wore XS shirts before I got pregnant and due to nursing, I’m significantly bigger on top now. Still, 6 weeks is a pretty good turnaround.
