2 months old!
My baby is 2 months old! Time is flying and I have a feeling it will only be picking up speed as she grows. She is now 12 lbs, 10 oz, and 24 1/4 inches long! She coos, smiles, laughs (occasionally), plays with her hair, tells us stories, loves the "how big is Daisy?" game, and just generally brings us joy anytime we set eyes on her. She loves her sleep, and she loves to stretch! You can watch a video of her trying her darndest to wake up, here. She still eats every three hours, give or take an hour or so. She sleeps about six hours a night pretty consistently. She is getting so strong and holds her head up like a pro. Here's a video of her being my little bobble-head:
We are finding that she loves her swing! It calms her down almost every time if she is fussy. Unless she is hungry, then nothing calms her down except chowin' down!
We had her to the doctor today for her 2 month check-up...and shots! Ugh. Not my favorite part! When the first needle went in she first looked confused, then her eyes went real wide, then she let us have it! She cried so loud. The nurse was very quick, though, and once I was able to pick her up she settled down pretty quickly. I had to dry my eyes before we left the room, however. =)
This month has been one of a few firsts for little miss Daisy:
First time in the big girl part of the stroller.
First time in the car seat without the head support.
She found her hair and now when she's sleeping her little fist can usually be found balled up in it.
First time at a carnival. We were driving by the mall and saw they had a small carnival set up in the parking lot. So of course we just had to break out the stroller and walk her through. She had this expression the whole time, and promptly fell asleep within minutes. I think she loved it. =)
Here's to many more firsts in month 3!
