Baby girl is 2 months old!
I'd say time is flying, but it seems like she's been in our lives much longer than that! I can't imagine life without her :)
Things have been going much better since the first month. The new normal is feeling more normal... if that makes sense :) And I've been making a point to get out of the house at least every other day and going shopping or some other type of outing. She's now been to Costco, Trader Joes, Christmas tree shopping, Ben's work, my old work, Target and Kohls. I can tell she likes the new scenery and new things to look at.
She's still sleeping and eating like a champ. She sometimes sleeps 8 or 9 hours so I can't complain at all! And breastfeeding has been going fabulously. I feel so lucky about that too!
Hi, little sister
She had her 2 month appointment yesterday and she is now 12.3lbs! Still a chunky butt! Other than that she is doing great, but is apparently favoring her left side too much :( So we are having to do some stretches and kind of forcing her to lay her head on the right side more so her head does not become misshapen. Poo :( Hopefully we can correct it before she needs physical therapy or has to wear a helmet! Yikes!
Besides that though, she's perfect :) She's begun smiling, laughing and cooing and it is so cute!
Her first Christmas was great. We spent Christmas Eve & morning at our house and then traveled to my parents and then Ben's parent's the day after. I was pretty stressed about how she'd do in the car for that long (1.5 hrs and 2.5 hrs ), but she did amazing! She slept the whole way the first two trips and then only cried a few times on the way back. I don't know how we got so lucky!
Check out my super snazzy Christmas dress, while Gibson checks out my foot!
So, things have been going well. It makes me think about how things were when we first got Gibson and everything was soo difficult, but now those things seem like second nature. Hopefully, it will be the same with Miss Hadley :)
