Avery's Second Month

Avery,

As of this past Saturday, you are 2 months old! I can't believe my sweet girl is 2 months old already!! I will probably say this every month, but it just goes by so darn fast!

 Weekly photos for weeks 5-8. (You can see her weeks 1-4 pictures in her 1 month post here.)
 
You gained a few more pounds this month! At your 6 week check up you weighed 11 pounds 12 ounces and were 23 1/4 inches long. This is just about the same weight and height that your brother was at, at his 6 week check-up! You are wearing your 3 month and 3-6 month clothes now and have even wore a few 6 month sleepers! We bumped you up to size 2 diapers this month as well.

You are still eating great. Since Mommy has gone back to work we are exclusively formula feeding and that seems to be working well for all of us. You eat 5-6 ounces every 3-4 hours throughout the day and then you generally take your last bottle of the evening between 8:30 and 9:30 and will then sleep until around 5:00 a.m. the next morning. Mommy gets up and feeds you then and then you'll usually go back to sleep and sleep until around 8:30 or 9:00 a.m. This schedule is working out perfect now that I'm back to work because you sleep while Mommy is getting ready for work and that is so very helpful. :-)

You are smiling all the time now and will even try talking to us. You have a lot to say and I just love hearing you "talk". :-) It's got to be the cutest thing ever. You study our mouths when we are talking to you. I think you'll be an early talker. ;-)

You officially slept through the night this month! On June 16th you slept til 5:30 in the morning and then the next night you slept til 6:30 a.m.!! You've been sleeping through the night ever since! You still like to be swaddled up to go to sleep and your new thing is that you like to bury your face in my arm to fall asleep. It's so sweet!! You are starting to like your binkie more and more and I always use it to get you to sleep. You don't really want it throughout the day, but you do like to have it when I rock you to sleep.

You are still loving bath time. I put your little bath tub in the big bath tub so that I could give you and your brother a bath together and you both seem to enjoy this. Jackson likes putting his cars in your tub and you like watching him play!

You celebrated your third holiday this month... Father's Day. :-)
(You and Daddy)

(You and Papa)

We also had you dedicated this month at church! I will write a more detailed post about this special day in the next week or two, but you looked so pretty and did so good.  :-)

Well, I think that just about sums up month 2! You are such a sweet girl and I just love being your mommy. You are so pretty and we get compliments all the time about how beautiful you are. You get lots of love from family and friends. People line up at church to hold you. :-) You are certainly a blessing from God! Mommy loves you to pieces!

 XOXO - Mommy
