2 months

Isaac Bear 2 Months 
.: Stats- 12 lbs 12 oz & 23 in. long

.: What You’re Wearing- Size 2 diapers because you flooood size ones.  0-3 month clothing still fits, but you’re about to be too long for them, so very close to 3-6 month.

.: Firsts- pumpkin patch visit, bus and hayrack ride, sunburn, trip to park & second sunburn *bad mommy!*, 2 birthday parties (Libby & Dylan), smiles & cooing, and on the night before you turned 2 months you slept through the night!! Happy 2 mo birthday gift for mommy!

.: From Head to Toe- Your skin is one big flake right now!  Your scalp, forehead & ears in particular.  I did learn that putting lotion on your scalp did NOT make your hair more greasy, if anything it make it less?!?!?!  We had you on Zyntac for reflux, but I didn’t like how it was working, if it was at all?!  So, I went to what I knew worked for Aidan…Dr. S!!!  (chiropractor) We went on 4 visits last week and WOW, what a different baby.  You’re pooing more regular, taking more restful naps, and just generally more content.  Dr. P said you still have quite and outtie belly button and we may need to look at getting that fixed down the road.

.: Loves- being held especially in the rocking chair, looking at sissy, staring at the bear hanging from the swing canopy, car rides OVER 45 mph, napping in the swing, when mommy claps your hands together quickly causing you to jiggle, your new BFF the thumb, movement (being held while I’m up moving around), starting to enjoy bath time, held with pacifier and patted on the bottom,

.: Dislikes- 5pm – 8pm, being left alone, tolerates the bouncy seat & floor gym, car rides under 45 mph, boppy pillow, car seat,

.: Eating-  sensitive formula 6 oz every 3-4 hours

.: Sleeping- going to bed about 10:30-11 p.m. waking about 2 a.m. to eat and sometimes again about 5 a.m. but sometimes mommy could get you to sleep with her at 5 to hold off the feeding.  Slept through the night (10 p.m. – 7 a.m.) on Sunday the 11th.

.: Misc Facts

.: So happy that I’ve taken the time to have Dr. S treat you.  It’s already made a big difference, just like it did for Aidan.  Wish we had known about him when Aidan was your age!  It’s been a lot of trips into Wichita usually with Emma and Aidan in tow (sometimes even daycare kiddos), but totally worth the time and effort.  We want you to feel good, be happy and in no pain and so far Dr. S. is getting us to that point!

.: I feel like for the first time in 2 months I’m going to survive this life as a mother of 3.  It was a tough adjustment, partially due to my extended recovery, and the past 10 days have been hard with Emma and Aidan being sick, but I’m finding a place of peace where this is all going to be OK and I will survive.  Disclaimer is that I’m typing this during nap…so these peaceful feelings of surviving may quickly change (as they often do) back to me overwhelmed!  Oh the ups and downs of motherhood!
