Two Months

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

She:

>Weighs 12 pounds 5 ounces (83rd percentile), is 23 inches long, & is quite solid.

>Cried for a solid five minutes after her 2-month vaccines and then promptly fell asleep

>Can wear some of her 3-6 month clothes already

>Gets mostly comments like, Those cheeks! or Look at all that hair!

>Has started snorting when shes crying or when shes excited and its the cutest thing ever

>Is babbling and talking more and more, but hasnt really laughed yet

>Chews and sucks on her hand a lot now, which Im trying to encourage since she still wont take a pacifier

>Exclusively wears cloth diapers (mostly small Fuzzibunz)

>Has a constant diaper rash even though weve now switched to cloth wipes as well (argh I think it might be the PUL lining & we need to change her more?)

>Will finally go to sleep by 10 p.m. if I start her bedtime routine at 7 p.m. and lay down with her (at least shes done this three times, hoping it continues)

>Sleeps for 12 hours not including nursing

>Is starting to show interest in things dangling in front of her, and will follow us with her head and eyes

>Hates getting dressed and cries pretty much every time

>Smiles at me every morning like shes so glad to see me again, making me melt

I:

>Go back to work in TWO DAYS OMG

>Am trying SO hard not to be too anxious or emotional about the upcoming transition, but I still am

>Have worked really hard on preparing the house, our home routines, and supplies for my return to work and Merediths start at daycare

>Love it SO MUCH when David plays with her and sings to her

>Am still a little bit obsessed with cloth diapers and spend way too much time researching them

>Finally broke down and bought some fat pants (a pair of jeans and capris) that are two sizes up from my norm, so Ill at least have something to wear until I lose weight

>Really want to exercise but I dont know how until Meredith is big enough for the jogging stroller (6 months)

>Am attempting to recap and review this season of Dancing With the Stars

>Think weve found a new church that I love so far

>Cant wait for cooler weather and family walks in the evening (I hope we can fit them in)

>Absolutely love being Merediths mother and cant imagine life without her

  5. From Megan:

    Meredith is beautiful! She has such pretty skin, and I do love those cheeks!

    Have you considered trying the 30-day shred? Its a quick workout (20-30 minutes), and you could really just do it a couple or a few days a week just to keep you active. I think it could really work since its a short workout! At least until you can start jogging. :) Keep us posted!

    I have thought about the 30-day Shred, and I even own it! The reason I havent committed to doing it yet is because I remember it being pretty hard. And I havent exercised in awhile andIm scared. :) But I might just suck it up and do it! Good idea.
