Eliza, what a wonderful 2 months it has been! You are the perfect addition to our family and your daddy and I adore every day with you. You bring us so much laughter and joy! As much as I want time to slow down so that I can keep you little :) I cannot wait to see you grow and develop over the coming months. Happy 2 months sweet pea!
You took your shots like a champ. I think you cry more when I change your clothes. :) You were a little sensitive and fussy after your shots but I enjoyed the extra snuggles with you!
You continue to be a great eater! Although we introduced you to a bottle (of breast milk) around 3 weeks old (and you took it well) we didn't give it to you regularly... when we tried giving it to you around 6 weeks old you refused it! We are working on re-introducing it to you. Your dad is being very patient with you while you fight the bottle feedings. I hope you catch back on quickly! I'd like to be able to share the feeding responsibility every now and then. :)
During your 8th week you slept your longest night stretch...5 hours! You have had a few more 4-4 1/2 hour stretches since then. I won't get too excited about your sleep patterns yet because I know things will continue to be sporadic. I certainly felt very well-rested the mornings after those longer stretches of sleep.
Mornings continue to be your best awake time and I look forward to that time with you everyday! You love your activity mat more than anything and we've also started listening to some fun children's music then too (Elizabeth Mitchell is my current favorite and you seem to like it too)! Your fussy time of day usually appears shortly after your 4pm feeding and lasts till we feed you again around 7. I had been trying to put you in your crib to sleep during your "rest" time but have recently let you just nap in your snugabunny or in your mom or dad's arms.
I look forward to seeing how you grow and change in your 3rd month of life! We love you so much Eliza-bug!
