Jordyn Lynn [2 Months]

You are 2 months old sweet baby girl!!  You are such a great baby!  


Growing like a weed just like you are supposed to be doing at this age!  Your pediatrician confirmed you're as perfect as your mama and daddy think you are!  You weighed in at 10 lbs. 13 oz. [44%] and 22 3/4 in. long [60%].


You haven't started daycare yet, but you're on a feeding schedule now.  You eat 4-5oz. of Enfamil Newborn Formula at 8a, noon, 4p, & 8p with one feeding in the night [usually between 4-6a.  We're still using Avent bottles, but moved to stage 2 nipples.  You're starting to spit up a little, so we're watching it.  Your Ped. said reflux problems typically start between 2 and 4 months, so we're praying it's just a fluke and you won't have that.  


We've set up your video monitor and plan to transition you to your crib soon.  You're starting to move around more in the night and we think you'll enjoy your sleep more if you aren't hitting the sides!  :)  We've started swaddling your with your arms out, since you were having nothing to do with your arms being tucked in all night.  You typically go to bed by 9pm and wake between 4 and 6am to eat.  After that, it just depends on the day.  Sometimes you're up for good, other days you sleep until 9am!


You are such a happy baby!  You have hardly fussed since you were born, but this month you found your smile!  You melt our hearts!  Especially daddy's...you already have him wrapped around your finger! :)  That being said, you've also found your voice!  We found that out when we took you in for your 2 month shots...break.mama's.heart!  :(  We came home and you slept most of the day.  You we're a champ...didn't even take Tylenol!



You're still having issues pooing.  That being said, twice this month you have exploded on your Aunt Alicia.  You no longer pee on the person changing you, but you're still the gassiest baby I know!  :)  You have transitioned to Size 1 Pampers diapers. Your onsies and most clothes are 0-3 months.  


The best present I have ever received!
Three days after your 2 month birthday we celebrated Christmas.  You were SPOILED!  From your parents, grandparents, and aunts & uncles.  You received everything from cash to a bookshelf to clothes to a rocking chair to tons of toys!  We cannot wait for Christmas next year...you'll be so much more aware of what's going on!  :)


You love to be snuggled!  If you aren't being held, you are a little wiggle worm!  Which is why at just 5w 2d you tumbled off the ottoman to the chair and eventually the floor! :(  Broke mama's heart, but thankfully you didn't even know what happened.

Quilt made by Auntie Esha's friend Sam
Your daddy and I love watching you grow and develop each day.  Thank you for being such a sweet baby girl.  You have no idea how much you've enriched our lives Miss Jordyn!  We love you to the moon and back!


Love,
Mama and Daddy
