Aiden: Two Months

Monday, October 26, 2015

Two months! Wow. Time flies. She gets more fun everyday! I mean, look at that face.

Here are some updates on our little buggy…

  • She's awake much more during the day, but we still don't have a sleeping schedule. She typically wakes up every 2.5 - 3 hours at night, but just eats and goes right back to sleep. I can't complain! (As I write this, she actually went two stretches of five hours last night!) We're going to try to get her on somewhat of a schedule once we get back from California in a couple weeks.
  • She still sleeps with us, and will only sleep in someone's arms, the car or her swing. If we try to put her in the crib or bassinet once she's asleep she'll wake up within about 20 minutes.
  • She is smiling and cooing up a storm! My favorite thing ever is when I'm talking to her and she'll look me in the eye and give me a big, gummy smile.
  • Blowing spit bubbles is another one of her newest tricks - of course, she doesn't actually know she's doing it.
  • The changing table is still her most favorite place. Mornings there are the greatest - she'll just smile, chat and kick around for a solid 30 minutes.
  • We've been terrible at tummy time (oops), but she does love to stretch and grow on her play mat. That counts, right?
  • If she's fussy, turning on music or taking her outside almost always calms her down.
  • She loves her daddy.
  • She also loves bath time with daddy. We changed her bath time to the afternoon because we noticed she slept pretty terrible after her baths. And then she started getting drowsy post-bath, so we moved it to nighttime. She had one last night, so I'd say that's our new nighttime routine. (See above for last night's sleep score.)
  • She's pretty good at holding her head up. What can I say? She's gifted.
  • We're hearing more and more that she looks like me, which I love
  • She's still a champ at breastfeeding, and will usually eat every three hours.
  • She had her first little cold, but it didn't seem to bother her at all.
  • She's still in 0-3 month clothes and just outgrew her newborn diapers on her two month birthday. 
  • She has a love/hate relationships with the car. Sometimes she just stares out the window, other times (mainly after we stop at a red light) she screams and nothing will calm her down until someone gets her out. It breaks my heart when there's nothing I can do!
  • She's still pretty content, but will definitely let us know when she's mad! 
Her two month appointment went great! 10lbs 8oz (41%) and 24" long (97%). Her head is in the 94th percentile… because her brain is so big! (Not really, but don't think Adam didn't ask.) She also got her first shots, which was the saddest moment of my life. I'm not really an emotional person, so I wasn't too worried about it. However, when she got that first shot and screamed, I cried right along with her. SADDEST THING, EVER. Luckily, she got over them quicker than mama and was a snuggle bug shortly after.

We love her more and more everyday!
