Last week, Brynlee officially turned 2 months old! Funny how she had her 2 month birthday right across the hall from where she was actually born. Well I guess that is not so funny...
Anyhow I cannot believe how much she has grown. I guess I don't notice it too much because I see her every day, but when I look at pictures of her from a month ago it's crazy.
She is now 10 lbs 8 oz! I think she is the only baby in history to actually gain weight in the hospital. But she certainly has. Jimmy and I call her "Tank Baby" because she is really starting to chunk up. Tessa thinks we are giving her a complex, but I'll stop calling her tank once she is old enough to know what I'm saying. :)
She is about 24 inches now I think. They measured her when they admitted her to the hospital, but I was too distracted then to see exactly what she was.
Just in the past few weeks her personality has really changed. She doesn't need to be held quite so much anymore. She likes to lay down and do her baby aerobics. She flings her arms and legs all around for about 45 min after every meal now. Maybe calling her a "tank" has given her a complex and she is trying to work off her food? Who knows.
She is really smiling now! And it melts my heart every time. She has especially paid notice to all the pediatricians who come in and out of the hospital room. She is starting her flirtation with doctors at a young age ( it's never too early to train them right?).
I've packed up all my newborn clothes for next time. If there is a next time, and if next time is a girl. It kind of bummed me out! So many cute little outfits she can't fit into anymore.
I am really enjoying her at this age though. She doesn't seem so fragile anymore. And she is much better at entertaining herself (who knew staring at an IV machine for hours on end could be so exciting?). She also entertains me in the process.
Lastly, I'm going to jinx myself here I just know it. But I'm going to brag a bit about what a good night time sleeper she is. She will sleep in her crib for like 6 hours before waking up to eat. Then I feed her and stick her back in her crib even if she is not asleep, she will go back to bed. Usually. Most of the time. We have our rough nights now and then, but for the most part I don't even need to rock her!
My friend has a 6 month old baby who still wakes up to eat at night every 2 hours! And she is even on formula. Just thinking about that makes me yawn!
Waiting for James to arrive!
