Miss Kirsi visited the doctor yesterday for her 8 week check up. (Has it already been 8 weeks?!) She’s weighing in at 9lbs 12oz and measured 21.5 inches. That puts her in the 14th percentile for height and the 15th percentile for weight. She seems so big to me since Eva barely measured on the chart as a baby, but I guess she’s still considered small compared to the average American baby.
Her blue eyes and light hair came as a bit of a surprise. Eva was born with a full head of jet black hair and dark eyes. I just assumed I’d have dark hair, dark eyed babies because those are the traits that I have. Kai, on the other hand, had blonde hair and blue eyes as a child (he now has brown hair), so the possibility was there. I can’t tell you how shocked I was when she came out looking like a Scandinavian baby, though!
Big sister Eva is getting along with her little sister fabulously. She’s always “helping” Mommy. Having a little sister isn’t always easy (I would know), and Eva is taking the change very well. I hope the two of them will be the best of friends when they’re older.
