Two Months Old!

Our little baby is 2 months old today!


  • wearing size 1 diapers
  • wearing some 0-3 month clothes and some 3-6 month clothes (she is L-O-N-G!)
  • still breastfeeding exclusively – hoping to go a full year like I did with Russell
  • tummy rarely seems to bother her now! yay!
*update: Meredith had her 2 month doctor's appointment on 6/21. She weighs 10 lbs 12 oz (50th percentile), is 23.75 inches long (90th percentile), and her head circumference is 15 cm (forgot to ask the percentile on that one). She had 3 shots and 1 oral vaccine - she did not like those shots but has been sleeping away since we left the office!


Meredith is getting more of a little personality as she sleeps less and is alert more. Here are some of the things she’s doing these days:

  • started smiling at around 5 weeks – but of course, never for the camera!
  • she may become our little social butterfly. She can be fussing away, and if someone comes over and talks to or plays with her, she will start smiling and cooing like nothing was ever wrong.
  • Jason and I have heard her laugh a few times in her sleep – SO cute!
  • she has started sleeping in her crib now, instead of the bassinet – we started this around 7 and a half weeks old.
  • sometimes puts herself to sleep – this is a HUGE shock to us as Russell absolutely never did this until we sleep-trained him. Meredith has even fallen asleep on the floor – again, never in a million years would Russell do that. I swear I heard the Hallelujah Chorus when that happened with Meredith Smile
  • As sweet as she is, she does of course still have some fussy times, but usually there is a reason for them: hungry, tired, bored (she does get bored, as I said, if someone isn’t playing with her sometimes), dirty diaper. And sometimes she cries for no reason, like any baby, but those times are becoming fewer.


What an awesome daughter we have! Can’t wait to see what the coming months bring Smile
