Mattie Jayne: Two Months

>> Saturday, March 16, 2013

Two month, two months! How in the world is my sweet newborn already two months?!? Every monthly post always starts with the same awe and shock that yet another month has passed. 

Stats: 
10lbs. 11oz. - 50%
23" long - 75%
Eats - nurses every 3-4 hours; takes a 3oz bottle 
Sleeps - 6-8 hour stretches at night, and fights falling asleep for naps and bedtime. 
Sleeps best when swaddled, tight:)
Mattie Jayne has really started to chunk up and I absolutely love her rolls.  Speaking of rolls, she has mastered rolling from her belly to her back.  It won't be be long before she's rolling from her back to belly either.  It is rather shocking just how strong she is, especially her head control.
Mattie's sleep has stayed pretty consistent.  She goes down for the night around 8PM and wakes sometime between 7-8 hours later and goes back down for at least 4 more hours.  I seriously cannot complain about her once a night feeding, but I'm more than ready for a full night stretch! My nieces may have my overly anxious about going 12-hours...but momma's got to dream!
Nursing is totally second nature, so all is going well on that end.  Pumping sucks, but it's just part of the territory of exclusively breast-feeding.  Mattie takes her bottle just fine, even cold, just like her brother. 
The smiles, coo's and bubbles started pretty much on her two month birthday and haven't stopped. 
We found an awesome nanny, so Mattie is getting into a little routine at home.  I miss her (and Jackson) so incredibly much during the day it makes my heart hurt.  Mattie loves to be outside and will ride in her stroller all day and night.  Bath time is everyone's favorite time.  She has also found the TV and cracks herself up during Jackson's episodes of Dino Dan...I think she's scheming up her plan for princesses to replace dinos;)
With these smiles, I am sure it won't take long for big brother to relinquish the remote!

OKAY, you are the second mama this week whose kid is rolling at 2 and 3 months. Lola is 5 months yesterday and no rolling. Is this because the kid is hardly out of the carseat?! Ahhhh!

I wouldn't worry about it, my niece is 7 months and just started rolling...consider yourself lucky:)
