Sweetie Turns 2 Months
This little lady is such a happy addition to our tribe. She loves being right in the mix of things and prefers sitting up in our laps to reclining just so she can see what is all going on around her. We have even done some Bumbo sessions and she loves it.
Thankfully she doesn't mind being on the go which happens pretty regularly with three older siblings. When I take all four of them out I get many comments about how busy and brave I am. It is funny how it really isn't all that big of a deal most of the time. (Although the older ones can cause the most trouble. Why is that?) And if you really want a parenting challenge, take all four of them to a few flooring stores in an evening. Yikes!
Sweetie is doing fairly well on the sleep front. She usually wakes up about 6 hours after she first goes down and then again in another 3ish hours. Most of the time she settles back down pretty quickly although some nights we play the pacifier game for a while. Insert paci, wait for it fall out, re-insert and repeat.
She is a very efficient eater and has the rolls to prove it. She actually weighed in at 14 pounds and 4 ounces at her two month appointment and measured 22 inches long. It is a blessing to not have to worry about how much she weighs or how much she eats. She has taken about two bottles, but otherwise she just hangs out with mom and gets her milk that way.
She definitely has her social moments these days. She will coo and smile and really likes her siblings to pay attention to her. And she gets plenty of attention from them. :D
We love, love, love our little squishy and feel so blessed to have her in our family!
