Two Months

(I am totally going back to this format for baby updates. My BFF8's way is just the best.)

Months: Two, already. I honestly don't know how time went so fast. Why does the last two months of pregnancy drag, but once the baby comes, time flies?

Weight: I stepped on the scale with her last week and she is about 12 pounds. She has her two month appointment in about 2 weeks, so we will see officially then.

Things she can do: She is smiling a lot, and starting to talk a little bit. And it is the sweetest thing in the world. Also, she is really good at pulling her binkie out of her mouth and then getting super mad when she is no longer sucking on it. She is a ton of fun during bath time. She is all full of kicks and won't sit still. I love it!!

How she is sleeping: She sleeps so good! During the day we have to fight it a little more, but it is totally worth it at night. She sleeps from between 10:30 to 11:00 and then doesn't wake up until about 5. Sometimes it has even been at 7. I can't complain about that.

How she is eating: She loves her milk. The chubbiness on her legs prove that fact.

What Maddi loves: She loves being cuddled, and she loves facing out to see everyone.

What Maddi hates: Being mauled by her big sister. Abby means well, but she just doesn't know what the term "be soft" means. And of course Maddi doesn't realize just how much her big sister loves her and practically laying on top of her is the only way she knows how to show it.

How mommy is doing: Two kids is a ton of work. Some days are harder than others, and on those days I wonder if I am really fit to be a mommy. Like seriously. But then my sweethearts do something to melt my heart and it makes the hard days all worth it.

What we are working on: More frequent tummy time, letting mommy clean without wanting to be held, and trying to get her eye better. She has a clogged tear duct and every time she wakes up she looks like a pirate. Any tips to get it to clear up faster?

What we are looking forward to: Halloween, even though we don't have costume ideas yet. And even though we won't have our most favorite party of the year. And even though daddy has a test that night too. Wait...are we looking forward to Halloween?


  1. she is just so cute! landon saw her and said baby abby hahah for landons blocked tear ducts i put my breast milk in his eye and rubbed them? poor baby girl!

  2. I've heard the breast milk in the eye thing too, and it's supposed to work miracles. However, I've never tried it myself because, well you know.

    I'm missing all her milestones, but I'm glad you're keeping me updated. Take a video of her smiling and talking!

    Also, you have to look forward to Halloween. It's the best! I'm sorry we won't have a party there this year.

  3. So cute Caitlin!! I just can't believe how big she is getting already! Charlotte will be 3 months tomorrow! Agh! It's going tooooo fast! I didn't get to hold her on Sunday... so next time! :) Love you! baaa
