My baby is (over) 2 months old now! This post is a little late...sorry :). On December 21, Isla celebrated her 2 month birthday. She went for her 2month well baby on the 22nd, where she checked out fine and got her shots :(. She weighed in at 11lbs 6oz (65th %) and measured 23.5inches (88th %). Long skinny gal!
And just for fun...a picture of Miles at 2 months :)
Here are a few pictures taken during her second month.
She smiles all the time now and is becoming more interactive every day. She is a great sleeper (sleeping a good 7-10hour stretch each night!). She is also a good eater and growing well. However, we had a small issue that started the day of her doctor appointment...she started refusing a bottle! I had to start back to work this past Friday, so we were afraid it was going to be a problem. The first night I was gone, she reluctantly took 4.5oz around 10pm after some fussing and refusing, then slept until 8am (even though I got home around 2am). Saturday night, she didn't resist the bottle as much and took 4oz around 9:30. After she fell asleep around 10:30, she slept till 8am, again! She even took a bottle yesterday, when I was in the house. I'm hoping we're through that issue and don't have to worry about it anymore.
As I just mentioned, I started back to work this past weekend. I only did 2 half shifts, but it went better than I had expected. I was off for 10.5weeks and am easing back into my regular full time schedule. I had some feelings of anxiety, but nothing that I couldn't easily get past. No tears were shed on my part. I had a pretty easy first night with plenty of time to remember my routine and all my charting, etc. The second night was a bad night in our unit...very sad night. Thankfully, they don't happen very often, but they sure remind me to cuddle my kids a little longer and be eternally grateful for every moment that I have with my happy healthy children!
