Sweet Pea is 2 months old!

 Happy 2 months to my sweet baby girl!


Age: 2 months old!
Height: 22.5 inches (54th %tile)
Weight: 12 lbs, 2 oz (72 %tile)
Head: 39 cm (75th %tile)
(I'm glad her body is catching up with her head! Last month her head was in the 98th %tile lol)

Milestones:
One of the milestones for 2 months is responsive smiling. We definitely don't have a problem there!
Almost every time we talk to you you smile back! It's super sweet!

We have even gotten a few little squeals and giggles out of her!
She has been doing a great job working out those neck muscles too...check it out!
so last week we put her in the Bumbo Seat for the first time to see if she liked it.
She loved it! Now she sits in it for a little while every day and it cracks me up because she looks so stinkin' cute sitting up like that!

The day after Valentines Day, sweet pea rolled from her stomach to her back. No more tummy time for her now that she's figured that one out:)

Sleep:
We are still having a pretty hard time with this one! Sweet pea fights sleep like you wouldn't believe! We have learned that if we put her down after she yawns for the first time that it's a much easier process, but some days she only naps for a bout an hour or two total! 
When she does sleep, thought, she's pretty stinkin' cute! Don't you think? 


At night, she sleeps a 4-5 hour stretch and then is up again every 2.5 hours to eat. I have been trying different things to get her to sleep longer, but at this stage, I don't feel ready to let her "cry it out", especially when I know she is waking up to eat. 

Best Moments: 
We went on our first walk with Kaci and Madison. It was such a beautiful day and it felt great to get some fresh air. Your face peeking out of the stroller was pretty hilarious, though. You looked confused and mad. I think you need to get out more!
This was also a fun moment, although someday you may categorize it under your worst lol. Either way, I dressed you up like a cow and you were freaking cute!

Worst Moments: Those moments when you scream your little head off no matter what we do! It hasn't been happening as often, but when it does, it's heartbreaking. I think you get overtired and then won't let yourself fall asleep. I'm glad you want to stay awake with us, but it's no fun when you cry like that! Other then that, you give us far more best moments than worst moments!

Health: You've been kind of congested for a couple weeks now. We were worried, but the doctor said it's the up and down weather we've been having. One day it will be 65-70 degrees and the next day it will be in the 30's. I hope it goes away soon though because I hate using that sucking bulb to clear your nose out. From the sound of it, I'm thinking you aren't a big fan either.

Eating Habits: Definitely no problems there, and I praise Jesus for that. I'm so thankful that you eat well and are getting enough. You eat every 2.5 hours during the day and sometimes longer spaces between at night. My milk must be pretty awesome because you're getting chubby!
Last week, you were sleeping in your swing and your daddy walked over in front of you and said "wow she is getting fat!" You immediately started to cry lol! It was pretty funny that you acted so upset!

Special Memories:
Your first Valentines Day. Your daddy got you a sweet card and your first flowers! What a special girl:)
We went to dinner as a family and you did great! It was a sweet Valentines Day for sure!

We started using cloth diapers this month, just during the day when we are home. 
Not gonna lie, it grosses me out a little bit, but I like that I'm saving a few bucks every day! 

You had one of your first play dates a couple weeks ago with Josie and your cousin Madison. Even though you didn't really get much playing done, the three of you laid on the floor and smiled at each other and kept hitting each other. It was pretty cute!

You love your play mat! There's a little star at the top with a smiley face that plays music. I think you would talk to it all day if I let you! You smile and laugh at it too. You and that star are pretty good friends:)

You also recently found your hands! You love to twirl them around together and put them in your mouth. It's so cute seeing you trying to shove your little fist in your mouth!
 It's been such a great month with you. I'm blessed to be your mommy sweet pea! I'm looking forward to all that month 3 brings:)

  11. She is just too cute!!!! Love them chubby cheeks! A great little thing to buy is an automatic 'booger sucker', as we call it..lol!! Its electric (runs off batteries)..you just push the button on it and it does the 'sucking' for you! Now let me warn you..Makayla STILL didnt like this thing much when she was wee little..but now that she's 20 months old..she thinks its hilarious! A definate good investment! ;-)

  12. What a doll! I love her little dress with her boots. Where in the world did you find tights that fit? I've only seen 0-6 months and those are just too big for my three month old.

  13. Oh, she is SO CUTE!

    It took us months to realise that Ivy wouldn't nap because she was over tired. I gradually reduced her wake time - most of the time she couldn't cope with being away for more than an hour (including feed time). Once we worked that out she slept much better but you think if they're tired why don't they just sleep!!

    Sounds like you're doing a fab job! :)

  15. She is just too cute! It goes so fast doesn't it? My daughter is 17 months now and your post brought me back to when she was that little. She was the same with sleeping...always fighting it and quick to get over tired! She is a great sleeper now though.
