Last week, our tiny little baby girl Grace turned 2 months old! Sometimes it feels like she has been with us forever, but other times I feel like it was just yesterday that we brought her home.
Here are her stats:
Weight – 10 pounds 1.5 ounces
Height – 22.5 inches
Eating – She is still nursing about every 2 hours during the day, which is fine with me as long as she continues to sleep so well at night. She is what my mom calls a “lazy nurser” and sure does like to take her time…in fact, I think she would be perfectly content to just use me as her personal pacifier 24/7 if I would let her. She will barely tolerate a real paci when she is desperate, but I practically have to sit there and hold it in her mouth for her – the complete opposite of her brother!
Sleeping – She usually eats for the last time around 9 or 10pm, then I put her in bed & she will sleep until anywhere from 6 to 9am.
Other Milestones – She laughed for the first time last week when Son & I both were able to hear her, but hasn’t done it again since then. She loves to “talk” to her daddy when he gets home from work & will just sit there and smile and coo back at him when he asks her a question – it is the cutest thing in the entire world! A few days ago I was bathing Collin while Grace was hanging out in her play pen when I heard a rattling noise. I went to check on her & she had one of her toys in her hand & was shaking it back & forth! It was probably an accident that she grabbed it, but it looked like she was having fun!
