So I have been slacking a little on the whole blog situation. I really wanted to keep it up to date at least a few times a week this summer, but I’ve been so busy. I have always made fun of people who have babies and then drop off the face of the Earth. I have officially turned into one of them. I have to keep telling myself “This is only temporary.“
I’ve realized there are things you CAN do with a baby and there are things you CANNOT do with a baby. Grocery store shopping and mall visits are doable, even though I have to throw all the groceries around her while she sits in the cart. I really have been trying to run with Olivia more, but unless it’s time for a nap, she is not having it!
Before I forget, here are her two month stats:
Stats: 12 pounds (exactly!), 23 inches (exactly!), 75% percentile head
Favorites: Monks the Wabbanub (see below if you are not sure what a Wabbanub is…)
Lifesavers for Mom and Dad: Fisher Price swing, the fact that she still likes to nap, and Monks the Wabbanub..
Things She Hates: She officially loves her bath now…now it’s just a battle of when she gets out. She screams! During the bath and before…dead silent..
Facts: Not sleeping as much, eats about 5 oz a feeding, smiles a lot, coos a lot, sees further distances and focuses more, and really likes to look at herself in a mirror.
Sleep Habits: She cat naps throughout the day. At about 8:30-9:00pm, I give her a bath and a few ounces of formula and that will hold her ’til about 3:00am in the morning….it is awesome! Then I feed her and she goes back to sleep immediately until about 6:00-7:00am. Love it.
Doctors Visits: Her normal 2 month check up along with a visit for some major cradle cap going on. It’s slowly starting to go away!
Eating Habits: She is still an eater. She will not pass up a meal. We still are giving her Enfamil Newborn, but are sad to say pretty soon we have to bump her up to Enfamil Infant.
Milestones: She reached out and grabbed a toy that makes noise this morning. Lots of smiling and cooing. Sitting up all by herself with the aid of a couch or Bumbo. She is starting to get different cries for different things.
Looking Forward To: Taking her to California to see the beach!
