Enjoying the New Play Mat
At two-months-old everything is exciting. The picture above is Noelle enjoying the 'new' play mat we picked up yesterday from the Caltech baby furniture exchange. Caltech has a wonderful, volunteer-run program that loans baby and household essentials to Caltech affiliated families (link). We picked up a changing table from them months ago and a few other baby items. Most items are free and large items are available for only a small fee. It's a great way to get toys for the baby. You can 'check out' three toys at a time and keep them as long as you like. This way, we can always have age-appropriate toys for her with out accumulating a ton of them in our tiny apartment.
The two-month doctor visit went well for Noelle this morning. She weighs 12 lbs 12 oz and is 24 inches long! She has gained exactly 50% of her birth weight already! Alex and I bet Sunday night's dinner and movie on how much she would weigh. Fortunately for me, I guessed it right on the nose. I see an evening of romantic drama and sushi in our future =)
