Sweet P: 2 Months Old

11 lbs., 8.5 oz. (50th percentile)

23 in. long (75th percentile)

Pretty much the same as last month. She'll be so glad to face outward in the Ergobaby 360. She's only a half pound away! (Thanks for the Ergo advice, Lo!)

  • Her little hair sprout is still going strong! I love that cute little sprout. There's no taming it.
  • In the last few weeks her smiles have become reactions rather than arbitrary reflexes. Seeing her smile in response to things we say makes her seem so much more like her own little person. She's coming into her own. It's fun to see!
  • She moved up to size 2 diapers right before she turned two months old. She may have been born on the small side, but this little beauty is growing!
  • S sent me a video of her imitating his cooing sounds, and it had me and my co-workers laughing so hard. It is adorable! She now imitates the owl hoots from her swing's nature sounds too.
  • She is still sleeping at my bedside. She wakes up once or twice at night, and I can usually get her fed, changed, and back to sleep in about 25 minutes. Woo hoo! She can get fussy during the night but not to the point that she wakes up.
  • She does really well with bath time. No tears, no fuss. She lets us scrub her down and brush her hair/scalp. As long as I keep talking to her while I dry her, apply lotion and dress her, she's a happy camper.
  • She prefers to be held all evening once I'm home. Sometimes I think I should hold her as much as she wants me to, and sometimes I wonder if I'm training her to be a needy child. I mean, she's only two months old. It's okay to hold her all the time, right? I think so. Her pediatrician also reminded us that the first three months are often thought of as the "fourth trimester."
  • She's starting to make more sounds, and sometimes I feel like she'll cry out a certain way just to hear herself.
  • She fusses before she actually pees, so maybe she'll potty train early... ? (Ha! Wishful thinking!)
  • The cats still don't know what to make of her. Until she is bigger and more in control of herself, they probably won't even think she's human.

We love our girl!

You are quite welcome! I hope she loves facing out as much as my little man does. As for holding her vs. spoiling her... I'm team hold-em-love-em-cuddle-em as long as you can, because it won't last forever! She's a cutie pie!

Yes yes yes love and snuggle that baby all you want. There is no such thing as a spoiled baby!

I can't believe how much she has grown this month!

What a little sweetie! She is adorable, Lindsay. You seem like an amazing mom, but I didn't expect anything less! :)
