Kate’s Two Month “Birthday” fell on her Aunt Katie’s wedding day!
Weight & Height: At her two month appointment, she weighed 10 lbs, 11 oz (26%), measured 23 1/2 inches long (84%), and her head clocked in at 40 1/4 cm (92%). I asked the doctor if she was concerned about her weight, and she wasn’t at all–as long as she is continuing to eat/pee/poop regularly (she is), the doctor said that was just fine. She might just be long and lean like daddy!
Eating: Still eating every 2-3 hours during the day, usually between 3-4 oz each time (when she has to take a bottle from when I’ve pumped).
Sleeping (naps): Still the queen of crap naps. 🙂 But I will take this any day considering she sleeps so well at night! Usually she’ll take 3-4 naps a day that average 30-45 minutes.
Sleeping (at night): Bedtime is getting earlier, which is good! She’ll usually fall asleep for the night around 10 or so, wake up between 4 and 5 to eat, then go back asleep for a couple of hours.
Clothing: Officially into 0-3 month clothes! Some are actually getting too tight because of her length.
New this month: She loves to “talk”! She will just sit and have a “cooing” conversation with you for the longest time. She’s also become more aware of everything: faces, Montana, toys.
Nicknames: Sweet girl, Sweet pea, Peanut, Miss Kate
-To smile! She is one of the happiest babies I’ve ever been around…and I promise I’m not just saying that because she’s mine.
-She LOVES to nurse, which makes me so happy! She will take a bottle, but sometimes you’ll have to work with her for a couple minutes before she latches on.
-Being walked/bounced/swung in her car seat
-To be spoken to, especially in a high pitched voice.
-Still a morning girl!
Pretty much the same as last month…
-Sleeping during the day (usually)
