Two Months

Oh Zoe, I can’t believe you are two months old!!!

Nicknames: Little Z, Cheeks, Sweet Cheeks, Kiddo

Loves: mat time on your back, crib and swing mobiles, anything that lights up, Violet (your Leapfrog dog that sings and has a collar that lights up), chewing on your hands

Hates: tummy time, waiting for your bottle to warm up

Milestones: On 2/2/17 you moved around your first rattle with assistance from the chair, on 2/6/17 you grabbed your first toy and moved it up to your mouth and proceeded to chew on it. And so it begins! You started smiling before your first month, but this month you really recognize everyone and smile when you see me come get you in the mornings or from a nap. Around the 7 week mark, you started going to bed for the night between 10pm-11pm and sleep until 5am-7am. It has been glorious!!! You have also been staying up longer stretches during the day, and taking less naps in general.

Clothing: I started packing away your newborn sized things around 7 weeks. You are getting to be too long for the items that had feet in them. You still fit in to two or three pairs of your newborn pants without any feet. Mostly you are wearing 0-3 month sized items, and a few 3 month things. Most 3 month things fit you length-wise but you are swimming in them otherwise.

Feeding: You take anywhere from 3 to 6 ounces when you have a bottle. Usually it is 6 ounces when you wake up in the morning, and mostly 4 ounce bottles every 2-3 hours during the day if you are awake. If you happen to take a long day nap, it is 5-6 ounces when you wake up!

Looks: Your eyes keep getting a lighter and lighter shade of blue, and your hair has gotten a little lighter too.

There are so many things I want to remember from the last month!!!

–How much you love laying on the changing table and having conversations with me. After I get your diaper changed and get you dressed again, I give you four kisses. One on your right cheek, then your forehead, then your left cheek then you always open your mouth real big like you are kissing me back! It is the sweetest thing!!!!

–The most dramatic way that  you grunt when you are stretching, or eating, or sleeping. It is adorable.

–The way you loudly suck on your pacifier when you’re mad that it isn’t your bottle. Sometimes you even give me an angry look while doing it and furrow your  brow.

–How you play with your hair when you are falling asleep.

–The huge smile that spreads across your face when you recognize me when you wake up in the mornings and I am coming in to get you. Melts my heart every time!!!!!

–When you try to talk to us and you sound like a little owl with a “who” sound.

–How you smile and give almost a little giggle noise when I open your diaper and find poo.

–The way you scrunch your shoulders when you smile real big.

–The way you tap your fingers on your bottle while you drink.

–When you lay down for mat play, you become obsessed with your dresser drawer handle and get frustrated because you can’t figure out how to move your arm to reach for it yet.

    I cant believe we’re at 2 months!!!
    If her eyes are getting lighter & lighter, maybe she’s going to keep those blue eyes <3 … my mom always wanted a blue eyed daughter & she said she'll never forget walking in the room one day & looked down & my eyes had changed to brown. She said she laid on the floor &cried. haha… my dad has brown eyes so he was happy about it.

    Two months already! I can just see her with her pacifier looking at you like she’s tolerating it, but really wanting her bottle! haha.

    Oh my gosh, she could NOT be any cuter!!! I want baby snuggles! Caleb used to tap on his bottle too and it cracked me up. So glad she is sleeping well for you!

    I can’t handle the cuteness! And I can hear the heavens opening up and the hallelujah chorus that she’s sleeping much better, isn’t it the most amazing feeling? <3

Enjoy all of these great little moments. Both you and her are going to love having these memories to look back on 🙂 Beautifully Candid

    2 months already! She’s definitely a little bundle of sweet cheeks. I bet it’s fun tracking her growth and even better having a blog to document it all.
