Sorry this post is way late, but I have been busy getting ready to go back to work. Meanwhile, our little princess turned TWO months old at the end of March.
Her personality is starting to shine through more and more each day. She has started to recognize faces and will smile at me when I talk to her.
She is a really good baby, and has been sleeping really well. We sort of have a routine down and I think she is starting to catch on.
We give her a bath every night, because it really seems to calm her down and she loves it. In fact, she screams when I take her out of her bathtub. I change her and nurse her until she is almost asleep, then I put her down in her bed. I’ve started picking up on her cues. If I put her down and she starts to whine, I know she either wants to be burped or she is still hungry. Most of the time she is still hungry. I will pick her up and feed her again until she goes to sleep, then put her down for the night. Typically she goes to bed around 8-9pm and will sleep until 1-2 am. I get up, change her, feed her and then she will go back to sleep until 4 or 5am.
I am hoping she starts sleeping for longer stretches of time after her 1-2am wake up call so I can get ready for work a little easier. I can’t complain though, she seems to have already learned to put herself to sleep without crying (most) of the time.
She is growing really well, but is still smaller than Liam. This is to be expected since she is a girl and was born two weeks early. No biggie, the doctor says she is growing really well and I am happy.
Her two month stats are:
Weight: 10 lbs 3 oz (35th percentile)
Height: 22.75 inches (75th percentile)
Head size: 15.23 inches (50th percentile)
She is growing
Welp I think that is all I have for this month’s update.
I hope everyone has a great day!
