Peyton – 2 months old

I don’t know where the time has gone but our baby girl is 2 months old!

She’s completely outgrown her newborn clothes and I finally packed them away last week.  She has so much personality already.  We chat with her all the time since she’s coo-ing more often.  She’s kicking her legs more now, especially when she’s excited.  We’ve been getting her to smile a lot this past week which has been really fun. She’s been a really good sleeper since we brought her home (I had to wake her up to nurse through the night for so long) and that still holds true at 2 months.  Just last night she slept from 9:45pm to 4:00am – 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep for mommy and daddy!

Peyton’s Likes:

  • Kisses from daddy
  • bath time – she didn’t at first but now she does, it’s part of our nightly routine
  • Ceiling fans
  • Looking at herself in the mirror above her on her play mat
  • Car rides and being in the stroller

Peyton’s Dislikes:

  • Staying on her tummy too long (most days)
  • Hearing other babies cry – it makes her cry too
  • The hours between 7:30 and 10 (although I think we’re getting past this stage since we’ve got an evening routine now)

Things we don’t want to forget:

  • Her first outing last month: Arby’s
  • Outgrowing her newborn clothes
  • Getting into a evening routine last week:  Eat around 6:30, bath time around 8, eat again between 8:30 or 9 and then she’s swaddled and put in the bassinet.
  • Sleeping long stretches at night (between 5 and 7 hours at a time)
  • The few times I resorted to driving around the neighborhood in the evening just to get her to sleep
  • Peyton & I enjoying Mom’s fellowship around the pool on Thursdays and meeting new friends
  • Her hair is juuuust starting to grow back on the top
  • Forest finally admitting that her eyes are blue
  • Visitors!  Grampa & Gramma S, Uncle Leon, Aunt Shelby & Chansler all over July 4th.  Aunt Amanda and Ashley a couple weeks later.

UPDATE: as of her 2 month appointment Aug 11, Peyton weighs 11 lbs 15 oz and measures 22 inches long.  She’s a healthy and growing baby!

Until next time — Cindy
