Happy 2 months, Madison!
It's amazing the joy this little girl has brought to mine and Alan's life over the past 2 months. She is gaining her little personality and is smiling and laughing more.
Her milestones this month were:
October 16- first outing other than the doctor. Birthday celebration for her Aunt Rachel at her Nimmie's house. She did great!
October 21- first time being babysat by her Nimmie- Alan's mom, so we could go on a much needed date! That same night, she rolled from her back to side and held it there for a while. After that, if we lay her flat, she would roll on that side to sleep. That's the night the bumper came out of her crib and her leg got stuck twice between the crib railing.. It hasn't happened since.
October 27- first shots were this day. She slept from 10am-7pm, woke up for 20 minutes, ate and fell asleep until 11pm then was up the rest of the night.
October 30- First trip to her Pepaw's house(Alans dad). It was also her first trip to the store. We went to Lowe's, Target and Dick's Sporting Goods. She fell asleep in the car and slept through us shopping in all 3 stores(about 2 hours!) She did okay at her Pepaw's. She had been a bit fussy since her shots and she started getting sleepy after we ate so she was fussy then too.
October 31- First Halloween! She dressed up as a cupcake. Since that was my pregnancy craving, I couldn't pass it up! We surprised her Nimmie by taking her over there.
She is now getting 3 baths per week. She really seems to enjoy bathtime now and has outgrown her newborn sling and now sits in the regular part of her tub.
She is getting really good at holding her head up, even though she's still pretty wobbly, she doesn't hesitate to hold it up and look around.
Her eyesight and focusing are so much better! If she is laying down and hears me or Alan, she will look around to find us.
Her typical routine is:
-Up for the day at 9am
-playtime for hour and half- usually includes story time, music & dancing, play mat and tummy time
-nap at 11am for hour
-playtime including sitting on porch and going on a walk if weather is nice, sitting in her Boppy pillow looking out the window and cuddles from mommy.
-Nap at 4pm for an hour
-daddy time when he gets home
-bath at 6:30 on bath nights
-more daddy time including playing, feeding, cuddling, rocking to sleep.
-bedtime story at 7:00
-bedtime at 7:30
-up at 10pm, 12am and 5am to eat 3-5 oz per feeding.
She is now eating between 3-7 oz per feeding and is wearing 3 months size clothes! Still in size 1 diapers.
