Avery was 2 months old on July 1st. It is truly amazing how much she has changed in just 2 months time. It really seems like every few days there is a new pattern in her behavior or something new that she has started doing. It’s hard to keep up some times, but also so much fun! Some how I feel that my love for her grows each and every day…even at the times when she still cries uncontrollably for no apparent reason. :)
Weight — 9 lbs, 9 oz. (up from 6 lbs, 15 oz at birth)
Length — 22 inches (up from 20 inches at birth)
What has changed over the past 4 weeks?
-Avery is very much awake all the time now, and doesn’t cry nearly as often when she is going to sleep.
-She stares and checks out everything now. She loves to look at new things and even seems to be getting bored at times when she is just being held still if you aren’t talking to her or giving her something to look at.
-We have had to retire several of her newborn onesies, as they are now to small–lengthwise. She is also fitting into several 0-3 months clothes now too.
-She now coos and makes adorable sounds while she is playing. She also “talks” back to us a lot, making sounds and every now and then mimicking the same sounds we make.
-My Next to Favorite: She has started sleeping much longer at night, so now I only have to get up once in the middle of the night to feed her. Our longest stretch so far has been her sleeping for about 5 hours!
-My Favorite: In the last week or so she has started smiling/grinning at us! It is THE cutest thing ever, and I LOVE it!!!!
In the next month I am most looking forward to…
-Watching Avery continue to change on a daily basis.
-Working on getting her to fall asleep on her own without being held every single time. This has happened a few times, but we are hoping to up the frequency.
-Enjoying every last minute of the last days of summer with Adam and Avery. I can’t believe it’s almost over! :(
While the zooms aren’t the same, if you look at the pattern on the chair you can see how much she has grown in length. And obviously by looking at the sleeper there is a big difference in the way it fits!
