Molly Update

Turns out it's really hard to keep the blog updated with all of the busyness Molly brings into my life--so sorry it's been awhile since the last post, I know everyone is anxious to see pictures.

Molly turned 2 months old last Saturday! She had a checkup with the pediatrician today, who was happy to see that she is growing and developing really well. She now weighs 12 lbs (which means she gained almost a pound a week in the last month) and also grew 2 inches in the past month! The doctor also confirmed what I had feared--that Molly has colic. However, since it doesn't seem to be effecting her growth in any way, the doctor wasn't concerned and told me to just keep doing what were doing and eventually this phase will pass. Ugh... Not sure how much more crying I can take. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm willing to try basically anything to soothe her when she has one of her episodes.

Here are some pictures from the last couple weeks:

Molly has now had 2 baths in a row that she didn't even cry during-yay! Maybe she will be a swimmer after all:

Molly's hair looks red-ish in some of these photos. She's really growing! Glad to see you're all doing well. I can hardly wait to see you all next month!

We can't wait to see you too! Her hair is reddish and we're not sure where she gets it from-haha!
