Quinn is two months old

Dear Quinn,

You are two months old (technically two and a half) and you have been keeping us busy! I can't believe another month (and a half) has flown by so quickly. I knew it would happen in the blink of an eye, but it doesn't keep me from wishing time would slow down just a bit.

You are nursing like a champ! You eat 4 oz every three hours and not a minute later. Your daddy says we could set a clock off of you. You aren't a fan if you have to wait. When I took you for your two month check up you weighed 11 lbs 3.5 oz (20th percentile) and were 23.5" long (75th percentile). This means you'll most likely be long and lean just like your daddy.

I've been so thankful for your sleeping habits. For the past week you've been nursing at 9 o'clock, go down by 10, and don't wake up until 5:30 in the morning! That has been wonderful!

You are currently in 3 month clothing. You have maxed out your footie pajamas and will be too long for them very soon I'm afraid. On the other hand, the growing has been good because now you are big enough to wear your cloth diapers. At first you weren't a fan. Every time you peed you would cry from the wetness. Now it doesn't seem to bother you a bit.

You have started smiling and cooing. I love it! It makes my heart happy when you smile at me and your daddy. I can't wait to hear your first giggle!

You love your play mat now. You bat at the animals hanging down and are captivated by the sounds, colors, and noises.

I love you so much!

still here

I've wanted to blog for a long time now. There's Christmas, our trip to North Carolina, New Year's, going back to much to catch up on! Unfortunately I don't know when it'll happen. I'm currently dealing with a sick baby, sick hubs, and sick me plus we are flying up to MA for my grandfather's funeral. It's a bit crazy to say the least! I'll be back sometime.
