Last Thursday, Hadley turned two months old! We were at the beach then so this update is a bit delayed. I'm also slightly bummed with how the pictures turned out, but it is what it is when you're trying to take them away from home with wrinkled blankets from being packed in a suitcase and a crazy dog and 5 year old nephew attempting to help you, ha!
Here's what Hadley girl has been up to this past month...
+ She'll have her two month well child visit on Friday afternoon, so still have no idea how much she weighs or how long she is. She's wearing 0-3 months clothes right now (made me SO SAD to pack up all of the newborn stuff), but I've noticed in the last couple of days that even this size is starting to be too short on her! We've officially moved up to size 1 diapers, too. Pampers are still my favorite.
+ She has learned to blow little bubbles with her mouth and has 'found' her hands. She loves to stare at them and always has them in her mouth during bath time.
+ Went on her first week long vacation to Saugatuck, Michigan (recap here).
+ Speaking of bath time, favorite thing ever. We do a bath every night as part of our bedtime routine and she's seriously so sweet during it. I think she is going to love the water. Some of you asked about the sponge thing we have in her bathtub after seeing it on an Instagram story, and it's this one. Perfect with her being so little still.
+ We had a bunch of not so fun firsts this month: first poop explosion that required me to put her directly in the bathtub because I had no idea what to do with her, first time that we had to aimlessly drive around to get her to stop crying & fall asleep, and first time having to leave a restaurant because she wouldn't stop screaming her head off, ha! She usually does so well out to eat, but she was not having it one night on vacation ;)
+ She doesn't really enjoy tummy time anymore, mostly because I think she gets frustrated. She tries to roll over - which she has done from her tummy to back once! - but can't really do it and just ends up wailing! She does enjoy her playmat - we even packed it up and brought it on vacation because it makes her so happy.
+ She is still the smiliest, happiest baby ever. She's starting to coo and make little sounds now which is pretty much the most adorable thing in the world.
+ If we want to keep her occupied for a good twenty minutes, we lay her on our bed so she can stare at our ceiling fan! We don't even turn it on, but she's obsessed with it.
+ We used our video monitor for the first time this month. She goes down about 9:30 and one Saturday night, we decided we didn't feel like going to bed early, so we set it up and went downstairs to watch the Olympics. And then I cried for a good hour!!! I have no idea what was wrong with me, but I just felt like she was growing up so fast (because really, it is going so fast) and I felt bad that she was up in our room all alone. Once I finally recovered, this commercial came on and all of the tears began again. I was a mess that night.
+ She's sleeping really well. 7-8 hours straight most nights, which I will totally take! She's still sleeping in our room (and I want to keep her in there forever haha). The naps are still a work in progress, but I can usually get about 30 minutes now when I put her down by herself during the day.
+ Has cradle cap on her eyebrows. I'm not sure how to get rid of this since I don't want to use anything too close to her eyes - anyone have any ideas? I plan on asking the pediatrician about it on Friday.
+ Loves to hang out with dad! I've had a few things going on at night, so they've spent a few evenings together going for walks and running errands to Home Depot, Sherwin Williams, all the man places.
It's been another amazing month! She's growing and changing so much everyday, definitely not the very newborn baby we brought home from the hospital anymore. Sometimes that makes me sad, but I'm also excited for the future together. Here's to month #3!
