2 Months Old!

Look who has internet!!! Yay!!! During this long internet hiatus TM passed the 2 month mark. She’s 11 weeks now but hey better late than never.

Turner McCartney – you are still alive! We are really doing this!

her feet are huge!!

 

Stats:

Weight: 10lbs 11oz – at 10 weeks

Height: 21.5 inches

Clothing Size: A few newborn sizes still fit but mostly wearing 0-3mnths

Diapers: we just moved up to size 1 diapers

Feeding: Homegirl never misses a meal. I’m afraid my boobs are going to fall off or start protesting or something. I’m nursing when I’m with her and pumping at work and some days I’m afraid I can’t keep up. I’m thankful that she still nurses and doesn’t demand a bottle at every feeding.

Hair/Eyes: Eyes are still blue. Her hair is light blonde but sometimes it has a red tint – almost looks strawberry blonde. The pedi said she’d be surprised if her eyes stayed blue so we’ll see.

Sleep: Apparently naps go great at Appy’s (the sitter) and at home she’s taking one good nap – 1-3 hours and a couple 30 minutes naps. Sleep is starting to get better. She sleeps between 5 and 7 hours at night and she gets up usually once a night. This has just started so I hope sleep is here to stay!

Favorites: Loving bath time still and we occasionally have major meltdowns when it’s time to get out. She has a love/hate relationship with the swing. She’s noticing the mobile a lot more but she doesn’t stay in the swing more than 10 minutes at a time. The changing table has been the best purchase we’ve made yet. She loves it. She’ll just talk and coo and smile the entire time she’s on it.

Fun stuff: TM has rolled from her back to her stomach on 3 separate occasions. I’m sure this is a fluke thing but let me be “that mom.” Humor me and tell me my child is a prodigy! :)

Her coos and sounds are getting so much louder and she’s been “talking” a lot more. She smiles and laughs all the time and it’s the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen! She’s starting to focus on objects and follow us with her eyes.

She absolutely HATES tummy time but she does awesome holding her head up and lifting her chest when she’s on her tummy. Her head control is great.

Being a mom is crazy hard but it’s the most rewarding experience. There’s nothing better than snuggling up with your beautiful baby !

 

If you read all this you rock! Thanks for sticking with me. My bloggy peeps are the best ever!

Happy 2 Months TM! My baby girl rolled from her tummy to her back the other day and I was the same way! Even though I swore I wouldn't be I'm going to be *that* Mom who think everything her child does is absolutely amazing! :)
