Yes, we’re just about at that two month mark. Time is flying by!
She can definitely be quite the difficult baby most of the time, with the frustrations regarding her feeding, her inability to nap for more than 45-60 minutes, and her constant crying unless she’s held. Yet, whenever I look at her or see her smile, I can’t help but love her.
I may not like her at times, but I love her with a fierce passion!
So yeah, I have to admit, she’s slowly, but surely starting to eat more. Before she would average around 15oz a day and now she’s pushing closer to 20oz a day, which isn’t much, but it’s getting better. She does manage to keep most of it down, so I’m hoping she’s getting what she needs to be healthy. I just think I’m always going to worry about that aspect of her life because it’s pretty important and I just worry in general.
And the sleep thing?! Yeah, I don’t know what that’s all about. I swear, we’ve tried everything. Swaddling, not swaddling, holding her, putting her down, swing, bouncer, bed, chair, EVERYTHING! The girl just won’t take long naps. Granted, she isn’t that bad of a sleeper at night, only getting up every 2-3 hours, sometimes even 4 hours, but she just doesn’t like to nap during the day. What am I complaining about exactly?! Well, that just means there’s not much time for me to get anything done. It’d be fine if she’d just lay there and entertain herself, but she’s usually pretty fussy, which I think stems from the fact that she’s not napping right, but I can’t figure out why she doesn’t take long naps. I’ve heard this could be due the reflux, you know, she’s just generally uncomfortable, but it shouldn’t be that bad.
Anyways, she’s starting to interact with people more, the smiles are in full effect and she talks to us on occasion. I love every moment of that and I’m doing my best to revel in it while it lasts. And she makes the most adorable and weirdest faces, as evidenced by some of the pictures I post. Ah! All this talk is making me miss her even more! I can’t wait to get home to her this weekend.
