Two months. How has that happened, while at the same time it’s only been two months?! I am not a huge fan of the first three months of newborns, but you have been so content and happy it really hasn’t been that bad. I feel like with you, the two month mark has felt a lot more normal than all the way to the three month mark. We are still not in a normal routine, but I feel like survival mode is wearing off and a little normalcy is returning. You are so smiley and happy, we love every minute with you.
Eating and sleeping:
You breastfeed like a champ and I am so so thankful for that as it was a major fight with Kina. You take a bottle great as well so I have some freedom whoo hoo! You eat every 2-3 hours during the day. Sometimes I do wake you from your nap at around 3 1/2 hours if you are super tired. At night you stared sleeping until close to 5 in the morning at the beginning of August. It was amazing but Kina was sick during that time so she was up and we didn’t get to enjoy the long sleep. Then when Kina got better you back tracked and woke up twice one night. Now we are at the point where you sleep until about 1 and then we give you your paci off and on until about 3 or four. You don’t really want to eat before that, you are just restless. Not sure how to get past the restless chunk of time but other than that I am very excited about the once a night. You eat pretty fast then fall asleep. You sleep until usually 7:30 or 8 then. You have been sleeping less and less during the day. About 40min to 1 hour naps after each feeding usually. In the evenings however its a few cat naps in our arms off and on.
You are very alert and look around and study everything. You love laying on your changing matt and talk to us by cooing and smiling. You are so content when you are awake and rarely cry unless you need something. You can almost roll over from your back to your tummy but your shoulder gets in the way.
We love you like crazy little girl. Your big sister loves helping taking care of you. She likes to bring you your blanket, burp rags, paci etc. I love holding you and have held you and snuggled you like crazy. This time around I decided I was going to go with my gut and not listen to every single opinion out there. My instincts have said to snuggle you lots and I am loving it. You lay down for your naps now which makes me sad but you are growing up and I need the time to get things done. You are very content when awake and like sitting in your bouncer or lay on the ground with big sister. You also like laying under your play matt with hanging animals. We are blessed to have you and love you very much little one.
Newborn, but I may be slowly transferring to 0-3 month soon.
