Kate is 2 months old!

Kate Alaina, you are two months old.

At your two month appointment Thursday,

    You weighed: 12lbs 4.5 oz (75%)

    Your Height: 22 ½ (50%)

    Your head circumference: 15 ¼ (50%)

    It’s no wonder that you have “chubbed” up a ton this month.  You are a huge fan of eating!  You like to nurse every 2 to 3 hours but usually closer to every 2 hours during the day. 

    You have slept through the night several times now.  But you are still not real consistent with it.  I feed you one last time usually around 9 or 10.  If you feel hungry during the night it’s usually at 2:30.  If not you will sleep until 5 or 6.

    We have been hit and miss with a structured scheduled.  After the new year (when we get past the holiday craziness) we’ll get hard core with it.  It was about this same time that I started working with your sister on a schedule, so it’s almost time. 

   At night you are sleeping in Momma and Daddy’s room in a rock and play.  As a newborn, you did not like your bassinet.  We’ll going to try it out again soon.  

    You are wearing size 1 diapers.  Your clothes are mostly 3 to 6 months.  The 3 month outfits are quickly becoming too small!

    You like bath time.  We are using the kitchen sink for your bath, although you did get in the tub the other night with Kendall.  You are pretty relaxed during your bath.

    You don’t care much for tummy time.  It’s really hard to work it in the day hopefully we’ll do better this month.  You already have better control of holding your head up.

   You are the biggest cuddle bug.  You sleep best when you are being held or cuddled.  Can you say “spoiled girl?”

     You are starting to give small grins, but you don’ t give them out freely.  It takes likes of work to get you to grin.  That’s ok though, it won’t be long until you realize how funny we all are. 

    Your hair is starting to come back in.  You look like a little fuzz head instead of a slick onion head.

   You have chilled out quite a bit this month.  You are more content when not being held, and for that your parents are grateful.

We are so glad that you are part of our family.  We love you so much!
