Llillian: Three Months

Height: 23 inches (or at least thats what I got when I measured her, no doctors visit this month so I'm not 100% sure)
Weight: 14 lbs
Diaper Size: We just moved up to size threes. We ran out of twos and while the threes are a tiny bit too big they work
Clothing size: She is still in some 0-3 month things and some 3-6 month things. I'm trying to dress her in all of her 0-3 month outfits over the next week or so to make sure we wore them all haha
Nicknames: Little bit, honey bun, wiggle worm, Lilly bug
Health: this past month we did have to make a "sick kid" trip but it was just for an infected nail bed. We still love her doctor and are so glad that we stuck with her.
Sleep: Lilly sleeps like a champ. She usually wakes up between 7-9am (it depends on when she fell asleep the night before). Then is awake for the day taking a few catnaps here and there. Sometimes she will take longer naps but not every day. She then goes down for the night between 8-10 (this depends on the nap situation during the day).
Eating: Home girl is a hungry hungry hippo. She eats every 3 hours during the day and has 6oz at each feeding. At night before bed sometimes instead of 6oz we will just give her 2-4oz depending on how she is acting. Also over the past month my supply of breast milk has steadily decreased and I'm now only pumping 2x a day and she gets 2oz of breast milk during her lunch time feeding. The rest of the time she gets Earths Best organic formula and loves it.
Favorites: Lilly's favorite toy right now is her stuffed elephant rattle that Nana got for her, and she still loves her lamb paci. She loves chit chats with Tyler when he gets home from work, and a new thing we've started at night is she gets to lay in our bed with us for a little bit before we lay her down in her bassinet. She just giggles and chats up a storm the whole time.

Lillian: Two Months

This is a week late but the info/pictures are right!

Lilly's second month of life was good one. She is growing like a weed! The girl loves to eat and sleep which is great. We've had to supplement more with formula but she is still getting 2-3 bottles a day of the good old fashion boob milk. At her two month appointment we found out she is short and chunky and perfect. On the way to the scale the sweet nurse said she bet that Lilly was over 10lbs, I laughed because she broke 10lbs before she hit a month old. At two months she was 12lbs 10oz, 22 inches long. 81% for weight and only 30% for height.... like I said, short and chunky.

Some nicknames we call her are Little bit, honey bun, pop-tart, chunkster, and baby girl.
She loves to smile and giggle, and the girl LOVES to talk.
She sleeps through the night and loves being in her bassinet or crib. If its passed her bed time (9pm) she will fuss and want to be laid down. She usually will sooth herself to sleep by sucking her thumb and talking to her self.
She hates tummy time now, and prefers to be sitting up so she can look around. We do out best though and do tummy time a few times a day.
Lilly has a strong grip and will grab and hold on to her paci and can even get it back in her mouth on her own if she pops it out on accident.
Baths are her second favorite time of the day (other then bed time), she just sits and coo's and would soak in the tub all night if we let her.

She honestly is such a laid back, easy baby. She does have her moments where she will scream for no reason, but they are few and far between. We are LUCKY!!

Happy two months on earth little one!
