The 8 week old baby...

Lindsay weighed in today at 9 pounds, 11.8 ounces, and is 21 inches tall. She's grown 2 inches and gained 3 pounds since her 2-week old visit. It was apparent to me in those adorable little rolls of chubby thighs and wrists that she's grown a whole lot in the past few weeks.

Lindsay has been sleeping about 5 1/2 hours at night now. She has started conversational cooing in reply to talking to her. It's very cute. She's flashing more of those smiles, as she able to see a bit farther. She gave Lauren the biggest grin I've seen yet.

She's not too big on the daytime sleeping, but will usually snooze for an hour or so after she eats, which is about every 3-4 hours.

And I was sure she'd be over 10lbs! Still some mighty growth from such a little one...
