I just can’t believe you’ve been in our lives for two months already! You are my whole world and I would never want to be without you. I don’t even want to go back to work and am seriously considering being a stay-at-home Mom. Financially, if it were ever an option, I would take it!!
You’ve had an exciting second month of life. You made it into the year 2015 with your Dad and I. We also celebrated your first Christmas together. You got to meet Santa at the mall (twice) and you didn’t even cry! You also let me do a bit of Christmas baking while I wore you in the moby wrap, so thank you for that.
You went on your first road trip to Lethbridge and you behaved wonderfully. You slept the entire way there and for most of the way back. I was so proud of you.
You were lucky enough to have 2 baby showers! There are so many people in your life who were excited to meet you! You were so spoiled with all the gifts. My hand was quite sore after writing all the thank you cards. You projectile vomited all over a guest at the first shower, but she is a Grandma and knows what babies are like, so she wasn’t mad.
We finished all of our baby classes and you’ve already made some new friends. We are hoping to plan some play dates in the upcoming year.
You are smiling more and more. They started out as those involuntary gassy smiles, but now they are true happy smiles. Your Dad and I LOVE to see them. The cooing has also arose full blast and both the smiles and coos make everyone around you go weak at the knees when they see and hear them.
Your Christmas present was a swing and you absolutely love it. You can sit in it for so long and be happy as a bunny. It often puts you to sleep and is now your go-to spot for naps. It helps Your Dad and I get things done around the house as well!
You love when I bounce with you on the exercise ball. It calms and soothes you very well. Often, you will fall asleep.
You have started to blow bubbles and drool. You will suck on your hands, our hands (actually any part of our bodies) but you refuse to take a soother. Once in a blue moon I can get you to suck on it, but you usually just cry until I stop trying. I am determined though. I don’t want to be a human soother for the rest of your babyhood.
You started having a regular bedtime routine. We start around 9pm by giving you a bath. Then it’s time for a change of clothes and into your sleep sack. We then read you a story and give you a feeding. You fall asleep while feeding and then we move you into your bassinet. You slept soundly in your cradle for 2 nights, but still prefer your bassinet. We will keep trying to transition you to the cradle and then eventually the crib (in your own room!!).
You had your first trip to urgent care because we thought you had a hernia from your belly button. It wasn’t bothering you but we wanted to get it checked out just to be safe. The doctor wasn’t too concerned and has told us that it is just part of your umbilical cord that is stubborn and doesn’t want to detach. We are keeping an eye on it and hoping it will fall off soon.
You had even more blood taken this month to check your platelet levels again. All was in the normal range and you probably won’t need to see the hematologist again. Yay.
As always, I am excited to see your personality develop even more this next month. I love everything new and exciting each day!! Love you forever and ever!
