2 months

here we are, over 2 months in.  i can't believe it.  chuck and i literally stare in disbelief at how much she has grown and changed since birth.  she is much more aware of her surrounding and it is freaking awesome watching her learn the world.  who knew (or would have thought) that I would be the kind of mom to get hung up on this kind of stuff...but i am.  i'm not ashamed at all to admit that i cry almost every day when i realize how fast this is all happening.  we love this child more than anything!

weight: 12 lbs at her 2 month appointment

height: i'm going to say 22", chuck is going to insist on more

medical: we have had a bit of a "whirlwind" medical month (nothing too serious) starting with a trip to the childrens ER. the simple diagnosis is that she has a intolerance to proteins in certain foods.  the tricky part has been trying to figure out what foods...so that I can cut them out of my diet.  so far we have eliminated all dairy and eggs and we still aren't 100% fixed.  this intolerance has cause lots of gas, fussiness, stomach aches, spit up, etc...so we are eager to get it figured out. otherwise, she is a healthy baby.  

sleep: still sleeping well.  we have actually moved her up to her nursery (since the 2 month mark) and she has transitioned very well.  she usually sleeps from about 9:30-10:00 PM to somewhere between 3:30-6:30 AM (I prefer the 6:30 days...) then will sleep again until about 9 AM.  

clothes/diapers: she is mostly 3 month clothing, but they are starting to get small.  she sleeps in size 1 diapers and we still do cloth during the day.

diet: exclusively breastmilk still

milestones: holding her head up really well during tummy time, cooing and smiling, 

likes: the swing, riding in the car, taking walks in the stroller

dislikes: being naked after bath time (although she likes bath time itself), being burped during feedings...simply because it is taking away from her eating!

mommy: i feel great! i got the "all clear" from the doctor at 7 weeks...i just haven't found my motivation to get back into the gym, i'm not sure if it is because I don't want to leave her or if I have just gotten used to not working out.  i'm hoping that the motivation will come on it's own and I won't have to force myself to start working out.  thankfully breastfeeding is taking care of most of the weight...the last few pounds are just going to be pesky and will require some toning to get my back to my old self.
