Ginger's Two Month Doctor's Visit


We just got home from Ginger's 2 month check-up. Her stats are:

Height: 24.5 inches (above 99th percentile)
Weight: 12 lbs., 6 oz. (85-90th percentile)

I asked the doctor if I should be concerned about Ginger "being so small," since Paprika weighed over 2 pounds more at this age and was an inch and a half longer. The doctor had a good laugh about that! Ginger was in the same percentile at her last appointment, so she is gaining weight at a nice, even pace.

She is off the charts for height, so it looks like we have another tall girl on our hands. A long, lean, tall girl. Defintely a supermodel or a WNBA player! Or both! ;-)

Paprika came to the appointment, too, and she was a pretty great girl. She wanted to be very helpful with the "flashlight" (the light they shine in the baby's eyes), and the doctor let her help shine the light, which Paprika thought was very neat.

Paprika made a point to tell the doctor all about her "big girl panties" and going on the potty. Thankfully, our doctor is a woman with a two year old at home, so she thought Paprika was hilarious.

Which reminds me...Paprika's preschool teachers told me a funny story last week. Apparently, during story time, Paprika stopped the class right in the middle of the story. Paprika said, "stop reading, I have something to say!" So, they said, "go on, Paprika, what do you have to tell us?" And Paprika announced in her most clear voice, "Hey Everybody, Guess What?!! I'm wearing Big Girl Panties!"

She is very proud, and so are we! :-)

I'm very thankful for a good doctor's appointment for Ginger today. She is big, growing, thriving, healthy, and just as sweet as she can be!
