Millie turned two months old on September 18, but this is finally posting now because I wanted to include her stats from her (late) 2 month checkup today. She weighs 12 pounds 2 ounces, the 72nd percentile, and is 24 inches long, the 91st percentile. Our boys were 13 and 14 pounds at this age, but I saw at the doctor's office that girls have a different growth chart.
More pictures from her photoshoot.
I had to keep positioning her bow and straightening her dress. She is moving her arms and legs and head a lot more now. Ben carried her back inside when JB was done with pictures on the grass.
In the last month, Millie-girl has been to sushi lunch with the Deardeuffs.
And a wedding with the Richards.
Many mornings we go on long walks with James and Daddy after the 3 older boys go to school. I will miss this when I go back to work :( In the picture below, the baby got sad because I had her facing forwards in the double jogger and the sun got in her eyes. So JB carried her home several blocks.
So the next time I put her back in her carrier so she could face me and have more shade. I also thought the sunbonnet I made may help.
"How YOU doin?"
One morning I realized we matched.
I have only left her a couple times, like for book group and for an appointment. JB texts me pictures to let me know she is just fine.
When he holds our babies, I think he looks like he is in his 20s again. Heart-eyes emoji.
Millie says "goo!" now and smiles lots. She gulps and slurps while nursing, so she needs good burpings, and she spits up a fair amount so we have to protect our clothing. Oh, and she does epic yellow blowouts. So different than our last, colicky non-pooping baby at this stage. Lately she is fond of cluster feeding and cat-napping until 10 or 11 PM, then going for a 5-6 hour stretch. This will have to change when I need to start going to bed early and getting up early again, or we'll have another constant co-sleeper.
