Kate is two months old (as of two days ago). We are just love love lovin' this tiny baby stage & are soaking it all up because we know too well that soon she will be crawling around our floors & being spoon fed pureed peas!
Here's a few facts about little Kate this month:
-She is so alert. She smiles & coos all day long & it's my favorite. So, so cute.
-She had her two month old shots & let out the saddest sobs after. I thought I had it together but sure enough, as soon as that nurse left the room I cried along with her. There's something way too sad about her having to go through pain & not being able to explain why to her. Someday I'll let ya know, Kate!
-Speaking of her doctor's appointment, she was 23 inches long & 11 lbs. 50% percentile in weight, & 75th in height. Perfect!
-She eats about every 2.5 hours during the day. For the past week, she goes down for the night between 9:30-10:30 & sleeps all the way until 6 or 7. I'm getting better sleep now than I was when I was pregnant. Thank you, angel baby!
-She is still in newborn diapers but most of her newborn clothes are too small. :( Her 0-3 month clothes are still too big, & I'm thinking they need to invent a size in between ?!
-Her eyes are the prettiest shade of dark blue. They look just like Aubrey's did at this age. Still excited I might have TWO blue eyed girls! (Steve has green eyes & I have brown.)
-Nursing is still going well. I'll admit the thing I love most about it is completely selfish. I love having to be the one to feed her. It makes me so happy when I hear someday say, "I think she's hungry. Here ya go, mom!"
-Loves to be rocked in the rocking chair like Aubrey did. (K, so I still rock Aubrey too. Judge me!)
-Has crazy strong head control. Yes I'm aware that every single mom says this about their baby but it's true. ;)
-Without too much gory detail, let's just say we have to change her outfit a few times a day. It's a love/hate relationship. At least she's getting good use out of ALL her many clothes!
-Loves to be in the Moby & Ergo.
-She sleeps in her bassinet in her room. She is the loudest sleeper just like her sister & we can all sleep now peacefully. :) Thank goodness for our Angelcare Monitor that puts us at ease! We'll probably try switching her to her crib in a few months, but I'm honestly sad to take her cute bumper off of it!
-She's becoming more fond of her binky. She will only take the "Soothies" kind. We only give it to her if she's really fussy & she's already fed/changed. She doesn't sleep with it at night, but does for naps during the day sometimes.
-She has yummy rolls on her arms & thighs. I gobble them up all day long. So dang cute.
While I love the stage we're in now, I'm looking forward to the next several months because I know how wonderful they were with Aubrey. Every stage seems to be the best stage at the time!
