Rilyn Ann: Two Months Old

23 Oct


Our Sweet Rilyn,

Hard to believe you’re two months old already. Seems like it was just yesterday that I was begging you to come out and join the world. It makes me sad how quickly time is going by, as I know that I won’t be able to hold you all wrapped up in my arms forever, but I am so excited for the coming months to watch you grow and learn new things!

Some Two Month Facts

-You weigh 10 pounds, 1 ounce (in the 25th%ile)
-You’re 22 inches long (50th%ile)
-You’re wearing 0-3 month clothes
-You’re in size 1 diapers
-You’re happiest in the morning and this is when you give us your biggest smiles
-You take a pretty good nap in the morning and catnap (20-30 minutes) in the afternoon and evening
-You still aren’t awake for long stretches of time during the day. You just prefer to sleep, but won’t actually stay asleep!
-You’re still sleeping wonderfully at night! Anywhere from 5-8 hour stretches
-You are a comfort nurser and a snacker. With those two things combined, it feels like you’re always nursing.
-You still have a full head of hair and I love it so much!
-You’re eyes keep getting lighter. I think they’ll end up turning blue like your big sister!
-It’s incredibly difficult to get you to fall asleep without nursing you.
-You’re currently being treated for reflux. We’re hoping this helps you out.
-You’re not happy at all during the evening hours, but hopefully we’ll figure out how to help you soon.
-You still hate the swing and the pacifier, which makes momma a little sad.
-You’ve rolled from your tummy to your back 4 times now
-You roll from your back to your side frequently.
-Your head control is amazing!
-You’re tracking with your eyes and turning to find us when we talk to you.
-You respond to us when we talk to you by cooing and making other noises. Your favorite noise to hear is the “rolling r” sound.
-You sleep swaddled at night but you hate it during the day.
-You’re still currently sleeping in the pack-and-play in our bedroom, but you will be moving to your room soon.
-You mimic us when we stick our tongue out. It’s the cutest thing!
-You’ve discovered the tv and really like to watch the colors and movement.
-You’re so interested in your sister. I think you love her already!

We love you sweet little girl! Happy 2 month birthday!
