Haddie-Lynn: two months

Dear Haddie-Lynn,

I blinked and another month has passed. I know I need to savor these moments with you because they are gone before I even realize it. Your little personality is starting to show and it makes my heart smile. You are beginning to coo and recognize daddy, bubba, and me. We all just love to see that sweet dimple on your left cheek.

You are doing great at nursing. You're pretty consistent at wanting to eat every 3 hours, but there are moments where you go a little longer or want to eat a little sooner. Getting a bottle at daycare was a bit of an adjustment. At home you nurse for about 30-40 minutes, but at daycare you suck down your bottle in only 10! That means the time between feedings is a bit longer and you weren't a big fan. You are drinking 5 oz bottles already! We tried to start with 4 oz, but you are happier with 5.

At your two month check up you weighed 11 lbs 7 oz (45th percentile), were 23.75" long (86th percentile), and your head circumference was 15.5" around (73rd percentile). You are only slightly bigger than your brother at this age. He was 11 lbs 3 oz and 23.5" long. You are wearing 3 month clothing and have outgrown some things that are labeled 0-3 month. Your cloth diapers are still sized at the smallest stride and the tightest snap around the waist.

You are such a great sleeper. You are continuing to sleep through the night in your swing. We haven't moved you to your crib just yet, because why mess with a good thing. We have been able to combine your last two feedings and put you down around 9:30pm. You love love love to snuggle under the blankets. I never put it over your face, but as soon as I turn around you have moved it up and over yourself.

You have been spending more time on your play mat and seem to really enjoy all there is to see. Your brother loves to get down on the floor and talk to you while you do tummy time or he'll be sure to turn on the music and lights for you to watch. He loves you so much already.

We are so blessed by you sissy girl. You certainly are a joy to this family. Your daddy and I love you to the moon and back.
