Month {2}


OK seriously...why is time going so fast?! I can't believe it's already been 2+ months since my baby girl has been here. She's grown so much. I'm enjoying all of the new little milestones.


She turned two months (8 weeks) on Sunday, November 17th and we had her 2 month check-up and vaccinations this past Tuesday. I'd heard from plenty of moms that the first round of shots were tough so I was obviously not looking forward to them. By the time the wellness check was done she was already pretty irritated from all of the poking and probing so when it is was time for shots she was OVER IT...I've never heard her scream so loud. Poor baby. When we got home, she slept for 3 hours. She woke up pretty fussy after her nap so I gave her a little infant Tylenol and she slept some more. By the time she woke up later that evening, she was back to her old self. I hear some babies are sore and fussy for days after shots so I'm thankful they didn't impact her too much. Such a tough little cookie. 

Milestones
11.4 pounds
23 inches long
Wearing 3 month clothes
Still nursing every 2-3 hours
Sleeping 5-6 hour stretches at night...normally from midnight to 5:30/6am
Holding her head up pretty well
Planting her feet and attempting to stand
Cooing all the time...she's quite expressive already :)
Smiling all the time
Loves bath time
The BEST snuggler

And here are a few of my fave pics of her from the past month:



I go back to work in 2 weeks. And although I'm thankful for my career and for the time I've had off to be home with baby girl, I'm dreading going back to work; however, I don't think I'm quite ready, mentally or financially, to stay home. But it's certainly something on the table for consideration in the future. For now, I know I'll miss my girl when I go back and just trying to prepare my mind and heart for this new transition as a working mom.
