Emma Lynn: Two Months



Dear Emma:

I can't believe you are two months! But then again I will probably say that every month. Time is just flying by so fast and you are already getting so big. It seems like the last two months has seriously flown by but then again there are days that it feels like time couldn't move any slower. But I'm trying to savor it as much as I can because you are my last which is definitely bittersweet in so many ways. But we are so glad it was you that we are ending on because even at only two months you are pretty awesome.

This month has been a lot of just keeping warm. Since we usually walk to get Addie from school, you snuggle in in the carrier and stay nice a warm. You don't have a coat but you are the warmest of all of us. Lately you have had mixed feelings about the carrier but that doesn't mean the motion doesn't put you right to sleep. But then again you do love being held. If you had it your way I would hold you all the time. In fact there are days that I swear I barely put you down. Often your eyes will pop right open as soon as I try to put you down in the boppy next to me on the couch. But we are working on you napping without being held because really you will be more comfortable in the long run not getting so sweaty and I can have use of my arms. But Emma snuggles are always nice.

This month was huge because you gave us your first smile. Technically I think you actually gave Connor your very first smile but it was a smile all the same. And now you smile all the time at us which we love. It really is the best when you give us that huge bright-eyed smile.

For the most part you are the most chill. The noises of your siblings racing around the house don't really bother you. You don't like to be hungry - but who does? And lately you have been letting yourself get overly tired because you want to check everything out around you and that makes you start screaming. You also really hate baths. It's just not your favorite at all.

When you do sleep, you actually do a pretty good job. Sometimes you have trouble settling but once you do during the day you will sleep about three-five hours. At night you usually go anywhere from 6-8 hours between feedings. Although just the other night you went 11 hours which gave us a really good night's sleep. We definitely aren't complaining about that.

You eat four ounce bottles of formula during the day every 3-5 hours and at night you go much longer. Every once in awhile you want a little more but not very often. I'm sure you are going to up how much you want to eat soon because you are growing so fast. You are most definitely out of newborn clothes. You aren't chubby but you are very long for sure.

You are such a fantastic little girl. You smile and talk to us. You make us all smile. Your brother and sister can't get enough of you and want to be near you all the time. You are such an amazing little girl and we love you so much.

Love, Mama
