Two months!


Dear Brooke,

Yesterday was your two months birthday.  I can’t believe that  two months have already flown by.  I go back to work in just a week and a half which makes me a little sad.  I just love being with you, but I know you will be in the best hands while I am at work (your Daddy!). 

You have graduated from the newborn clothes and are wearing 0-3 month now.  You are still in a size 1 diaper, but I think we will probably move to size 2 before you turn 3 months. 

You are still doing great with breastfeeding.  We survived the dreaded six week growth spurt.  You are not crazy about a bottle yet, but you will take one, begrudgingly.  Your dad and I are relieved that you will at least take one, because it will make me going back to work much easier.

You are getting better at sleeping.  I can usually count on at least one four hour stretch, but that will sometimes be as long as six hours.  Your napping pattern is starting to be a bit more predictable which is helping me gain a little more sanity.

You are one smiley baby!  I just love when I go to get you out of bed from a nap and you beam at me with your gummy grin.  You also do that when you are done nursing and have a full tummy.

You are such a sweet and easy going girl (unless you are hungry).  We love you so much and are having so much fun with you.  We are so happy to have you as a part of your family.

Love, Mommy
