Claire - Two Months

Our baby girl is already two months old!  Time sure flies when you are having fun.  

Two month stats:
9 pounds 9 ounces (25%)
22.25 inches (50%)

You really jumped up on the height chart - from the 30th percentile to the 50th!  Maybe you will be a tall girl after all.  Hopefully you will be taller than your mama.  You had to get 3 shots at the doctor's office and I made dad hold you.  You squealed and cried and I felt so bad I wanted to cry.  I don't like seeing my baby girl in pain or upset. 

Here is what I want to remember from your second month:

  • You finally really like your playmat.  You will bat at the monkey when I lay you down.  We go over all the animal names every day.
  • You continue to roll from your belly to your back.  Even the pediatrician noted how strong you were on your belly.
  • You still love tummy time but always want to roll over.
  • You are starting to like your swing a little more but not for long periods of time unless you are asleep.
  • We started using cloth diapers this month and they are going great.  We go through about 7 every day.  We still use disposables at night and if we are on the road.
  • You are starting to really smile and laugh when talked to.  Your dad and I both love trying to get those dimples out of you.
  • You like your baby carrier in small doses - usually only with dad.  Dad will hold you while he is working in the office.
  • You still love going for walks both in the stroller and in mom's arms.
  • We started feeding you one bottle every night so dad can have some bonding time.  You still love to eat.
  • You are such a good sleeper.  We can usually count on at least one good 6 hour sleep stretch every night.
  • You went on your first big shopping trip with mom, grandma, aunt Marcy and Gavin.  We bought new dresses for both of your uncles' weddings.
  • You attended your first wedding!  Uncle Eric got married and you had the prettiest red dress and matching flower headband.  You were such a good girl and everyone loved meeting you.
  • You like dancing with mom in the afternoons.  We turn on some country music and dance around the family room.
  • You still sleep in your rock-and-play sleeper in our bedroom.  I love having you close by.
  • You are starting to tolerate (maybe even like?) bath time.  No more tears makes for a very happy mommy.
