2 months!! (and 1st time mom drama!)

Ahh!! I can't believe this sweet baby is 2 months old!

Here are the stats from her 2 month check up:
Weight: 8 lbs 12 oz. {between 5th-7th percentile!}
Height: 21 inches {7th percentile}
Head: 14 inches {between 5th-7th percentile}

She gained almost 2 pounds since her 1 month check up! She is making her way up the growth chart and it's so exciting to see her growing so well! She was only in the 3rd percentile at her 1 month check, so any increase is awesome!

We are still in newborn diapers (although today, she wore a size 2...story to follow) but I think we will be moving to size 1 diapers within the next few weeks! She is still wearing newborn clothes and probably will be for a little while longer. Some newborn things (Gerber onesies) are getting too tight lengthwise, some newborn outfits fit perfectly, and some are still too big--especially the "separates." The tops/dresses will fit fine and the shorts/diaper covers/pants are still waaaaaay too big! Oh well, I am still having fun playing dress up and try and find things to do so that she will get to wear all of her outfits at least once!

She is sleeping well most of the time. It is still not a predictable routine, but since she has been eating close to 6 ounces at her nighttime feeding, she will sometimes be fed at 1 am and then not wake up until 6 or 7! This is a routine we can def. work with!

I cannot speak enough about the miracles of Gripe Water! Reese has always had the hiccups when she eats, spits up frequently and has gas. But, the gripe water has helped so much! Especially with the hiccups...we notice a huge difference when we don't put it in her bottles!

Here are this month's likes/dislikes:

~ THE red curtain. Still our fav. thing in the house!
~ Swinging. Most of the time, this is a like!
~ Car rides/road trips. She's been a road warrior since day 1 and it's ingrained in her now!
~ Smiling and "laughing". She is soo smiley and I love it! Also, I think she is in the early stages of laughing. Hopefully, full on laughter will be coming soon!
~ Her play mat. As long as the mood is right, she will play on this for 30 minutes!
~ Still loves eating!
~ Being changed on a bed. Who knows why, but she cries being changed on the changing table, but doesn't mind being changed on the bed!
~ The bath! She is so content and alert in the tub!
~ Her Winnie lovie.
~ Her reflection.
~ Being swaddled in the Miracle Blanket (seriously, the BEST blanket ever!)
~ Her crib music maker! (it has a mirror on it...go figure!)
~ She is still indifferent to the bouncy seat, although I think it's slowly climbing up on her list of likes!
~ Tummy time! (playing and sleeping)


~ The pacie has fallen to this list! She is not loving the pacie right now!
~ Changing her clothes!
~ Bright overhead lights (she gets this from her T!)
~ Shots! (she has pretty much been asleep since her 11:00 appointment!)
~ Having her feet covered. She gets this from me!
~ Burping!
~ Her changing table. (we already discussed this!)

As you notice, her DISLIKES list has decreased! I can't complain!

NOW, onto the drama with her appointment today.

Yall remember how I blogged about the diaper pouch that holds wipes, diapers, and a changing pad? Well, today I was adding new diapers to it before we left for Reese's appointment. When we got to the appointment, she had to strip down to just a diaper to get weighed. When I picked her up from the scale, there was a big puddle underneath her! Brandon took off her diaper and I reached into the bag to get the diaper pouch. Except. Yep, it wasn't in there! I told Brandon it wasn't in there and I got "the look." Haha. So, I ask the nurse if they have a diaper. They don't. {Sidenote: shouldn't a ped's office have those?} Soo, we put the wet diaper back on her and put a paper towel in there.

Then, about 30 seconds later, she starts reallllly going to the bathroom. Lovely. I then go into the waiting room and ask anyone if they have a diaper. They don't. Awesome. I then send Brandon into random people's exam rooms to find a diaper. He finally comes back with a size 2 diaper! So, I go into the bathroom to change her. I don't have wipes, so I had to use toilet paper. Perfect. Yall, this diaper was up to her armpits...haha...I was dying laughing. I wish I would have taken a pic, but I was too caught up in the moment.

When the Ped came in to examine Reese and practically reached up to her chest to unwrap the diaper, I made sure I told her that she is not wearing a size 2 on a daily basis!

Oh the joys of being a first time mom!

P.S. Bunny pic coming soon. She is not in the most photographic mood right now!
