So here we are, with a two month old baby that brings more joy than I ever thought possible. I believed everyone about time going faster, but I didn't believe everyone when they said it changes you in a way you can't even describe. I expected some change, but oh lord was I not prepared for what a positive light in my life this baby would be. She is amazing and her love makes everything in life so much less important. As Vince said, we'd rather have a glass of wine and watch her instead of TV!
Devin started smiling a couple weeks ago and that send my heart SOARING. Like a kite flying 40 miles over the earth. It is so wonderful when she gives me a big smile, with her chunky cheeks almost closing her eyes because the smile is so big! Of course she smiled for Vince first. He keeps saying she loves me more now because of the whole boob thing, but I keep reminding him that when she's older, he will undoubtedly be her favorite. He plays with her in ways I would never think to do!
At her two month check up that we had this past week (really 7 1/2 week checkup, but who's counting?) she had gained over 3 1/2 pounds since birth and was 10lbs2oz, and was in the 70th percentile for height at almost 23 inches! The nurse joked that momma was clearly feeding her well. That I am, all day and alllll night.
I keep a little basket of supplies next to the bed to change her as well, so we never need to get out of bed. Super thankful we decided to splurge on a king sized bed instead of a queen. Our bed will be a family bed, indeed! (Her schedule was obviously thrown off when she got her vaccines, but hopefully we'll be back to the usual soon. Very very soon, please.)
Yesterday at 8 weeks old.Her reflux is pretty much nonexistent now that I'm doing the Dr. Sear's Elimination Diet! (Again, until She got a vaccine with egg that made it worse.) We've been able to add back enough foods (I'm up to maybe 20 foods I can eat?) that I can maybe branch away from eating the same thing for every meal, which is nice. She is still spitting up some, but I consider it normal baby spit up. No projectile spit up, no painful cries with it, etc. Her hiccups aren't as often which is really good since they keep her awake, but she has them every day still.
