Sweet Scarlett is 2 months old! She had a crazy month with her first Christmas and New Years! She successfully slept entirely through both.
We're still breastfeeding strong! I've got about 100oz stashed in the freezer for when I return to work next month if need be. I'll probably have close to 150oz when I start back. She eats first thing when she wakes up (0800), around 1000, 1230, 1530 and then sometimes cluster feeds in the evening. I put her down about 8-9p and she sleeps through until about 5-6a then sleeps until about 8! Again, we've lucked out with a great sleeper again. My husband is convinced it's my super milk, but who really knows. Hopefully it holds out for him when I start the night shift at work.
This month she started to smile! I haven't been able to catch a good one on camera yet, but she has the cutest dimple on her right cheek. No one in either of our families have dimples so it's naturally adorable. She's started to coo at us and is very observant. She favors laying on her right side so we're focusing her on her left and trying to strengthen that neck with plenty of tummy time during the day.
This week we moved her upstairs but she had a bit of a low grade fever last night so back to our room until she feels better. It's such an odd feeling having both kids upstairs sleeping. Our room looks so much larger without the huge pack n play. Next step is moving the rocker upstairs too once we transition big sister to her new bed.
Scarlett naps anywhere (car seat, k'tan, ergo, swing) but doesn't nap long during the day. She naps for maybe 45min to a hour at a time, but she's sleeping through the night so I can't complain. She loves it when Norah talks to her. She loves being carried around the house and is a fan of our singing voices. She really enjoys standing up on her feet too. Hopefully her legs get strong quick!
She is definitely the most juiciest baby we've ever had. She is the spit up QUEEN. Norah NEVER spit up. Like ever. Scarlett is such the opposite and there's no rhyme or reason to it. So. Much. Laundry. But she's cute so I guess we'll keep her. She farts loud and proud too. It cracks Norah up everytime she hears it.
This next month we're going to try our first weekend away with all four of us! Hopefully the road trip and few nights away from home go pretty smooth. It's also my last month at home with her until I start at my new job. We have her a spot lined up at the same daycare as big sister! I'm so excited to go to work but I know I'll cry that first week when I leave her. It's just so hard to leave your vulnerable little baby in the hands of others. We can't wait to see how she changes and develops over the next month!
