Ok, so not to jinx us but our little bambino has been sleeping through the night....for a solid week. I am talking 6ish pm to 6ish am.....holy Toledo! I can't believe it. Not only does it make me a better, happier and more energetic parent but it makes me feel better knowing my baby is getting the rest she needs to grow well.
Speaking of growing. We just had her 2 month check and she weighed, buck naked (which is how I weigh too, clothes are heavy!)12 pounds and 12 ounces. A solid 24 inches long. Both were in the 95% for her age. Where she really has been focusing her energy is growing her head......we laughed out loud when the sweet nurse told us it was, um off the growth charts. 100% plus. We just know that this means she is brilliant...right?
She also had her first vaccination. I have done the whole circle of emotions regarding vaccines and after much research realized it was important to follow the recommended schedule and watch closely for reactions. When the time came, she cried so loud...my poor baby. Good thing dad was there to hold her, though I am pretty sure, immediately after, I said something like, give me my baby and snatched her away to receive the comfort only I can give her (or so I tell myself).
All in all we are doing so well. I never thought I would love being a mom this much. I never knew my hubby would be such an amazing dad. We surprise ourselves because she brings out the best in us.
