That sweet face – 2 months

Eline at two months

  • Awake more during the day, sometimes only dozing between feedings but generally napping at least an hour before the next bottle
  • Nighttime sleep varies quite a bit, anywhere from 4 – 7 hours
  • Continues to make more eye contact and notice more of her surroundings
  • Has given just a few precious, full-on smiles but mostly gives her bright-eyed almost-smiles
  • Generally a good-natured baby who only fusses when she needs something (diaper change, sleep, food)
  • Holds her head and sometimes chest up off the floor for 10-15 seconds and lifts her head and torso off mama’s shoulder for short amounts of time
  • Still loves to be held and cuddled, but also loves the swing, which has made mama’s life much easier (Thank you, Jessica, for the loan!)
  • Takes 4 1/2 to 5 oz. of breast milk or half breast milk/half formula six (occasionally seven) times a day, but sometimes goes very slowly (anywhere from 30 to 50 minutes per feeding) and continues to leak quite a bit at every feeding
  • Is terribly GASSY!
  • Has outgrown many of her newborn size clothes and is beginning to wear her 3 month sizes
  • At her pediatrician appointment today, weighed 9 lb. 4 oz. and was 20 1/2 in. long – small (10th percentile) but right on track for her growth curve

You are my sunshine

Already, I can’t imagine life without her.

  1. Adorable outfits on an adorable baby girl! We’ll forgive the “gassy” part. 😉
