T W O months-Jolie

Wow, two months already!  While it feels like time is flyiiiiiiing....it feels like forever and a day ago that I was writing Jolie's birth story.  Looking back at her one month update and pictures, this little lady has changed so much...most notably in the cheeks department. All the heart eyes for those chubby little cheeks!

Jo turned two months today, but had her well checkup on Monday.  She is now over ten pounds!  Quite a bit smaller still than her sister was at this age.  All was well at our checkup, just trying to solve some tummy troubles that she had been having this month.  We are having her tested to see if she has the same milk allergy that her sister had, however the past two days she has seemed very happy, content and comfortable...so knock on wood, maybe her little digestive system was still maturing and has worked it all out now.




Dearest Jolie,

Here we are, two months with you in our lives and a part of our family.  We are more in love with you every single day.  This past month has been pretty rough, as you have not been very content at all.  Gas and tummy troubles have had you in a tizzy, wiggling all over with discomfort and screaming out in pain.  Sadly, this has brought back awful memories of your sisters first three months of life before we found out about her milk allergy.  I thought about this the whole time I was pregnant..scared and really hoping that you would never have to experience the same pain.  We are having you tested for a milk allergy and will put you on the same milk Brynn was on if you do test positive.  The past three days though you have seemed like a new baby! Night and day, happy, napping away, smiling away...content to just sit by yourself.  This has also made me feel like a new mama! Everyone is happier when Jolie is happy!  Fingers crossed your little tummy has worked out its issues all on its own.

Your sister continues to adore you more with each passing day.  You are very good at tolerating all her million and one smooches she gives you a day...along with heavy head "petting" and nose poking. She is constantly going over to you and talking to you in her sweet baby voice, asking to hold you and doing anything and everything to get you to smile.  Speaking of smiles, you did that for the first time this month...and oh my stars! There is nothing cuter.  Brynn actually got your first smiles and that made my mama heart burst with happiness for your two.  She was so darn excited. 

You are way more alert these past few weeks.  You get noticeably happy when we appear in your vision...smiling away.  You have started to make this little sound...not a cry..just little outbursts as if to say hey...remember me over here, and as soon as we come talk to you or get you, you are happy again.  You spent much of the past month being held and rocked...you are definitely a snuggler.  In the middle of the night after your feedings when I am burping you, you will move your head around frantically trying to find the nook of my neck.  Once you do, you immediately let out a heavy sigh and these sweet little sleeping coos. 

I  know all to well know how fast these baby days go now.  I find myself constantly trying to take everything in a little more and a little longer.  Studying your tiny features, and trying to memorize every sweet detail about you.  You are absolute perfection my sweet girl.

We love you to the moon & back,
Mommy & Daddy




Stats:
Weight: 10lbs 4 oz
Height: 22 inches
Eye color: blue/grey
Sleep:  You have been a nap fighter allll month, just catnapping the day away until the past two days. You are definitely happier sleeping in my arms, and though I have a million and one things to do...I try to soak this in. I will say though that it is from all your tummy troubles this month and just being uncomfortable.  However, at night time you are a rock star, eating your last meal around 8:30 or 9 and sleeping until 3 or 4 and then waking for the day between 7 and 8.  

Feeding:  You are still eating around the clock every three hours sometimes sooner.  You are still a snacker and often leave an ounce or two left in the bottle and will come back to it in an hour or so to finish it off.

Diaper size:  I am sure you could still fit in newborns, but we ran out and had a bunch of size ones stocked up so we just moved on to those and they are pretty roomy.

Clothes size:  Still in mostly newborn clothes, newborn jammies are starting to get a little short, I started pulling out all our 0-3 stuff and am excited to dress you up in all your sisters cute hand me downs and of course matching you both.  My absolute favorite.

Hair color:  dark brown

Eye color: Blue/grey



Loves:  Being held, eating the day away, baths, lotion massages after bath time.

Hates: The carseat, the bright sun when I take you outside.

Milestones:  SMILES! Oh the smiles, more and more everyday and I could just melt every single time.  I can never get enough. Your face just lights up and that smile takes up your entire sweet face.  Also starting to make little sounds when you are happy...tiny little coos.

Favorite toy: Not really toys yet, but the Swing, paci are favorites of yours...the little birds hanging from your swing and the mirror are grabbing your attention too now.

Happy two months Jo, we love you so so much!
