Baby Update at 2 Months
We have made it TWO MONTHS! I can’t believe my baby girl is already two months old, next month she will officially be an ‘infant’ and not a ‘newborn’…tears.
I have learned many things about my daughter in the last two months.
One thing is she likes to eat…and I’m happy about that. She is turning into my little chunky monkey.
I learned that google is not always my friend. If I have an issue breastfeeding or something seems off…I google. If my daughter has a little bump or anything different…I google.
By the time you are done googling you end up with at least 50 different diseases and may as well consider yourself diagnosed with the plague.
So…I’m done googling at least at this second.
On to more things, my daughter sleeps really well, considering my son did not I was not expecting that. The first night that she slept nearly 7 hours I woke up in a panic. Was she breathing? Yes. Did I just get 7 hours straight of sleep? Yes. Panic over.
She is now starting to smile more and make more happy noises that are just so adorable I can’t contain myself.
Our son is finally coming around to loving on his sister without being jealous. He still has his moments, for instance when I start trying to make her smile and devote attention directly to her, the tiger inside him comes out. Think I’m kidding? He starts ‘roaring’ and when I say ‘stop that’ he proceeds to tell me that he needs to be a tiger.
We are both starting to get into a routine of sorts as far as myself working from home along side my daughter. Some days are easier or harder than others but at the end of the day work gets done.
I also figured out my Ergo Baby Carrier this month and love it! I absolutely love being able to carry her while playing outside with my son or just going to the store without dealing with a bulky car seat carrier.
I also looked back at pictures of my son this past month and decided that these two could have been twins. I basically have the boy and girl version of the same baby. The girl version sleeps, eats, and is calm. The boy version doesn’t want to eat what I serve him, gets up several times before finally going to sleep, and goes 90 miles an hour. I love them both.
I feel like we overcame lots of hurdles the last few months and are now in a groove which is nice. If I learned anything though about being a mom it’s that when you start to get comfortable everything changes again especially during this first year. I’m looking forward to next month!
