2 Months Old

Wow! You are already two months old. You are changing so much everyday. You are very alert and love to look at people and especially the fan. You have the cutest smile and are starting to coo and babble. When I took you to the Doctor the nurse couldn't believe how alert you were and how much you were smiling and watching her. She said most babies aren't like that until around four months. She said you were advanced for your age. I told her you just had a strong personality and told her she should see you when you are mad.
Eating: You are such a great eater. During the day you can go 3 hours, but in the evening between 2 and 3. You are still being breastfeed. I have been pumping to get you use to the bottle so when I do have to leave you won't be so upset.
Sleeping: Well I can say that last night you went to sleep around 10:30, sleep until 3:30-ate-and then sleep until 7. This was the first time you woke up only once, most of the time you wake up twice. Let's say a prayer that you will continue to follow last night’s schedule. During the day you are on the Eat-Play-Sleep schedule.
Play: This past month you have changed your mind and decided that you like your swing. You also like the bouncy seat. You also love to lay on the floor and move around. You also love to grab objects and you don't let go. Last week you got a hold of Blakely's hair and pulled it out-lets just say we had tears. I keep the hair and took a picture. WOW!!
Weight: 12 lbs 85%Height: 22 inches 75% Reflux: You are still taking medicine, but I only give you the zantac when needed. I hope that you will grow out of it. I also have quit drinking milk and not having a whole lot of dairy. This really has seem to help with the fussiness. The other night I had ice cream and the next day you cried a lot. So no ice cream for mommy until I am done nursing you. You are going to get your shots next week. We thought that insurance would cover them, but they only cover a certain amount of money a year, so we will have to take you to the health clinic for shots. ughhHappy 2 months Lilly! We love you!
Pictures: Aunt Marianne(who has been a nurse forever) got you your very own baby scrubs-so cute.I also included one of our pottery. Turned out great!If you go to the website below you can see two pics of Lilly when she was a week old. Go to portfolio and L is the one with butterlies all around her and the one with her blanket and ribbon that says from God.
