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. 

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.

The truth is...

The truth is...
I don't think Idris Elba is that hot. Don't get me wrong...I think he's a good looking guy, but I'm confident that I'm the only woman in the world that doesn't melt at the sight of him.

The truth is...
I hate when people post pictures of their feet on social media. I don't want to see your feet.

The truth is...
When I was pregnant, I constantly had the urge to sniff cleaning products. I know...crazy.

The truth is...
When I'm in a silly mood, I tell my husband that I'm going to spank him if he doesn't behave himself.

The truth is...
I didn't start eating yogurt until a year ago. And I quickly graduated to Greek yogurt. I felt so accomplished.

The truth is...
I hate to hear the kissing noise on TV/movies. You people grosses me out.

The truth is...
Guys that openly and shamelessly scratch their balls in public crack me up. Seriously?

The truth is...
I think Candy Crush is stupid. And I'm considering deleting anyone on Facebook who sends me another game request.

The truth is...
I won't use the bathroom (specifically #2) at work if someone is already in the bathroom. I will literally go from bathroom to bathroom until I know for sure I'll be alone to handle my business in peace.

The truth is...
I have a co-worker who routinely uses the phrase "bat shit crazy" to describe the behavior of other co-workers. Cracks me up every time she says it.

The truth is...
I have become way more passive aggressive since my daughter was born...using her to get my message across. For example, "oh you're just gotta tell daddy that you don't like to be held that way". Don't judge me...I'm working on it.

These are my truths. Thanks for letting me share.
