Sweet Baisden is 2 months old! These pictures are already hard to take. She moves her arms around so much! I love how her hair sticks up. It is getting longer and longer (and I think lighter too) so it just keeps getting more and more spiky!
Funny thing is, we got this outfit to bring her home in and it finally fits! It is most definitely mis-sized.
Little miss is doing great. She was on a pretty decent schedule before Josh and I approached our death beds last week. Being so sick affected my supply, which affected her sleeping habits and routine. We are getting back on track though. Before I got sick, she was sleeping GREAT at night, 7-9 hour stretches. We are back to some 7 hour ones, so hopefully we can get to the higher end of that bracket soon! She had also gotten her feedings down to 20 minutes. Right now, we are back at 40 minutes but I think that will just take a couple days to adjust down. Her typical schedule is something like below:
9:00AM - Wakes up for the day (she is happy and smiley!)
9:00-9:30AM - Feeds
9:30-10:15AM - Play time. We play on her activity mat and she coos at her animals.
10:15/10:30-11:45AM - Nap time in her crib. She may cry for a couple minutes but usually soothes herself.
12:00-12:30PM - Feeds
12:30-1:15PM - Alert time. Depending on what I need to do, she may sit in her bumbo, or in my lap. We practice sitting up/standing on those legs. This is also a great time for me to load her up for a walk or errands.
1:15/1:30 -2:45PM - Nap time. Most of the time this is on-the-go.
3:00-3:30PM - Feeds
3:30-4:00PM - Alert time, sometimes quite fussy.
4:00-5:15PM - Nap time in her crib.
5:30-6:00PM - Feeds
6:00-8:00PM - If we are lucky, she may take a catnap in one of our arms but this is definitely the witching hour.
8:00PM - Bath time! Most precious time of the day. She loves it so much.
8:30PM - Feeds, usually Josh gives her a bottle (She will take anywhere from 5-7oz.)
9:30PM - Typically asleep
She will wake anywhere from 2:30 to 5:30AM and will eat for about 20-30 minutes before going back to sleep. I am trying to adjust her to a different schedule before I go back to work in a few short weeks. We'll see how it goes.
Baisden is such a butterball. At 4 weeks, she weighed 9lbs, 12 oz and at 8 weeks, she is 11lbs, 5 oz. And she is so strong! She whips that head from side to side, I swear she must give herself whiplash. She seems fascinated with new scenery and really studies things when we walk from room to room. She prefers sitting up to laying down and she stands when we hold her. She loves using her legs. She is loving her activity mat and swats at the animals to make them chime. She can even grab the ring! She tries so hard to roll over from her tummy to her back, but we aren't there yet. Although, she can pick her head up off the mat, even so far as to pull her chest off the ground.
She is always moving. Her arms, hands, legs, anything and everything! In fact, most of the pictures I take of her end up looking like this:
She recognizes both Josh and me. She loves when her daddy plays with her nose. She will give him the biggest grin. I love it when she stretches. She makes the cutest little squeak as she arches her back. Bath time is such a favorite time of day for me. She is so adorable and content, watching me and herself in the mirror. She has started splashing around some which is fun! Her reaction to the water when she is first put in the tub is absolutely hysterical! One of these days I will get a video of that.
Happy 2 months, little B!
