2 Months Old

2 months old! She weighs 11lbs. 9oz. (75%) and measures 23 1/4 inches long (80%).

She has been a challenge in some ways and easy in others. She spits up constantly and cries a lot, but she makes up for this with her great sleeping habits at night!!! Pretty much right away she went 5 hours between feedings at night and for a couple weeks now she's been doing 8 hours! It's awesome. I feel like we're leaps and bounds ahead of where we were with Caedmon at this age in that regard!

She's been called "high maintenance." :) I'm seeing a switch from just crying for no reason to crying because no one's paying attention to her.

We've started taking her to the chiropractor, a friend who's been adjusting me since my pregnancy with her. I didn't know all the benefits of chiropractors but I'm learning! Adjusting babies has been known to help with spitting up, so we're trying it. It's been about a week of adjusting and I've seen improvement yesterday and today! My laundry duties may slow down if this works!:)She had to wear this outfit at least once,
if only because her brother wore it as well!:)

Same outfit, but at about 2 weeks -
he was into the next size of clothes by 6 weeks!

Let me know how the chiropractic works. I could have saved a ton of time and money if I could have solved that one messy problem!

She is sooo beautiful! I love all of her little facial expressions. In terms of the "high maintenance" part, I can sympathize! Angela is very clingy and will often cry for no reason other than wanting to be held. Alfonso has told me that she isn't as bad when he watches her, it's just when I am around. I don't know what it is with girls, but already you can see the difference in personalities. :)

Interesting Becky! Although for us, she's even worse for Corey! I think he doesn't try as hard with her 'cause he just figures he can hand her back and take care of Caedmon instead! Yes, I definitely see a personality coming through already! She has very distinct cries and definitely lets us know when she's not happy about something!
