Ah, my little baby is 2 months old. This can’t be. She’s supposed to stay a newborn forever. I just can’t believe how much she has grown in a month and how different she is. She still a sassy little diva but she is also happy, loving, cuddly and beautiful. I love her to the moon and back and couldn’t imagine my life without her in it. She has completed our family.
Weight & Length: 10 pounds 14 ounces & 23 3/4 inches long
Sleeping: Unfortunately Dessa is not sleeping through the night but if she is swaddled in her woombie she normally only wakes up once or twice. Also, I think only waking up twice a night at 2 months old makes her a pro sleeper.
Eating: She’s still doing great breastfeeding. She was sick this month which brought some difficulties. She lost her appetite for a day, which was painful for me and then a few days later wanted to cluster feed. She’s back to a good schedule now and both of us are a lot happier.
Clothing: She is still rocking the 3 month size clothing but has almost outgrown some of her footie pajamas in length. She is also outgrowing her Comfort & Harmony Woombie and I’m on the hunt for a larger one but with no luck. She is still in size 1 diapers. We tried her on some cloth diapers but she hated it and cried the whole time. We’re going to try again after she gets a little bigger.
Likes: Her pacifier, being held, being talked to, her pink fuzzy blanket and if she gets a chance watching TV which doesn’t happen often.
Dislikes: She hates not being swaddled when she is trying to fall asleep, her car seat, having her picture taken, hats.
Milestones: She is officially smiling and cooing. She didn’t smile a lot at first but now does it all the time, which I love. She does coo but not very often. She’s more of an observer than a talker but when she does coo it is the sweetest, cutest coo ever!
Baby Gear We Love: We are still loving her Graco glider. We can now just set her in it and she will fall asleep staring at the flowers on the mobile. We also got the pram attachment for our Baby Jogger City Select stroller. We all really like this because Dessa hates her car seat so using it with the stroller isn’t always convenient. I also have a bad back which makes baby wearing for long periods of time difficult. So if we are going out for a long period of time or on a family stroll the pram is great. We just lay her in there and within a few minutes of walking she’s asleep.
