2 months old!

Our little peanut is 2 months old already! I can't believe how time is flying by. She has so much personality and is so alert. She loves looking at the butterflies and flowers hanging above her changing table and is becoming more interested in being in her swing. She kicks like crazy, so Gigi and Papa got her a Kickin Coaster. She is actually able to kick hard enough to move the seat up and down! She has good head control but still doesn't like tummy time. She eats very well and has been consistent with 3 naps a day: morning, mid-day, late afternoon. We were having difficulty in the evenings for about 2 weeks. She was very colicky from about 5-8pm. Since we increased her Zantac dose, she is doing much better.

Today we saw Dr. Connolly and Amelia weighs 11lbs 2.5oz and is 23in. She is now in the 50th percentile for weight and 75th percentile for height. She received her first set of shots today. Daddy held her down while Mommy looked away. She cried for maybe a minute! Daddy scooped her up and she nestled into his arms and was happy! I gave her Tylenol when we got home and she napped well, but woke up miserable. She was so inconsolable, it broke our hearts. She was good for her bath, ate well, and then cried herself to sleep while I rocked her. Once I knew she was good and asleep, I put her to bed. Not looking forward to shots again in another 2 months!

Dr. Connolly says she should be sleeping 6 hours at night. She has only been sleeping about 4 hours. We would love if she would follow Dr. Connolly's suggestion!

Always kickin'

Love those rolls on her thighs!
