Hannah is 2 months old!

WOW! How quickly time flies! Hannah is already 2 months old! I took her in for her appointment on Wednesday. Everything looked great! Her stats:

Weight: 10 lbs 7 oz (50th %ile)
Height: 22 3/4 in (75th %ile)
Head Circumference: 39 cm (50th %ile)

To compare to Lily - at Lily's 2 month visit she was 10 lbs 12 oz and 23.5 in long. So they've grown at about the same rate, which is very comforting.

I also asked the pediatrician about two things I've noticed with Hannah. One is this thing near her right eye's tear duct - looks like a blackhead. (I want to pick it every time I see it!) He said it's a "pit." Basically, during development the duct that went from her eye to her nose didn't close up all the way. The pit doesn't go all the way to the duct - it closed up enough to not be a problem, but it's just a little indent that looks like a blackhead! He said "it's a wonderful identifying mark!" I'm thinking she won't be too fond of it when she's 13 years old... The other thing is a smallish bump on her head. It feels like part of her skull, so I just figured it was. He said it was some kind of cyst - I think he said a dermoid cyst...? It wasn't there when she was born, but as her skull was fusing together, the tissues around the area made this cyst. He said it shouldn't hurt her or cause problems, but it can be removed if it every does, or the hair doesn't grow there. He also said if she were to get hit hard enough in that spot, it would just shatter it and it would go away. Let's hope she never gets hit hard enough in the head for that to happen!

In addition to ALLL that, she's doing great! She has the cutest smiles and has started to talk back a little bit. She eats and sleeps just wonderfully. Even though she's only waking up once at night, I hope that she drops that soon! What I wouldn't give for more than a 5 hour stretch!

I only have a few new pictures - I really need to be taking more of Hannah. But here are some...

Do they look alike?


In this one, you can see the little "pit" near her eye. (You can see it better in the bigger version if you click on it.) Kinda funky.
