Jeanette - 2 months old

Again, I'm a little behind, Jeanette was 2 months old on March 23rd but now I'm caught up and can do a 3 month post in a more timely fashion!

Height: 24 1/2 inches long - you are a very long baby!

Weight: 10lbs, 7oz - you really took off and started to grow this month since mommy started supplementing with formula!  

Sleep:  You are an amazing sleeper at night!  You go to bed between 9 and 10 and don't wake up till 6:30-7am in the morning!  You tend to take cat naps during the day now, but that's fine with me if you continue to sleep through the night.

Feedings: You still eat every 3 hours like clockwork and usually take about 4-5oz.  The only time you really get crabby is before you eat.   

Best Moment(s):  The first time you smiled a real smile for me and daddy.  It was so sweet and just about melted our hearts!  You also started cooing this month, which next to smiling is about the cutest thing on the planet!  You are also getting really strong and getting a lot better at holding up your head. 

Worst Moment(s):  Seeing you spit up a whole bottle for the first time.  Either you ate too fast or ate too much, but that was such a scary moment.  I knew you were okay but it was really hard to watch you get that upset.  You also got shots at your 2 month appointment but you did so great!  Hearing you cry was really difficult for mommy but you were a trooper!  You were pretty tired that day, but didn't spike a fever and weren't overly fussy. 

Development:  As I had mentioned earlier, you are smiling and cooing which is super adorable and a great milestone!  You are developing those neck muscles and getting really good at holding up your head.  You follow our movements and love to watch the mobile in your crib.  You love to have books read to you and love your Sassy "First book of baby see's" book with the bright colors and patterns.  Grandma calls it your "smart book."  You can see yourself in the mirror now too and love the mirror on your play mat. 

Jeanette Loves:  Rock and play sleeper, laying in your crib with the mobile on, snuggling after a feeding, being rocked in your glider, laying on your play mat and watching yourself in the mirror.  You are starting to like bath time a lot more too! 

Jeanette Dislikes:  Tummy time isn't exactly your most favorite thing on earth.

Anything else?: Mommy went back to work this month and it was really difficult.  You however seem to be adjusting just fine and are very well behaved for the babysitter.  Daddy stays home with you one day a week and seems to get along fine as well and you have a day with your Grandma M too!  Mommy still cries on her way to work but knows that this is just how life has to be for now and that you are in good hands. 

After your 2 month doctor appointment where you got
your first shots.  You seemed to do just fine!
