Ceres is two months old today! She had her two month well checkup yesterday; she weighs 13 pounds & 1.2 ounces and is 23 inches long. That puts her in the 77th percentile for length and a whopping 95th percentile for weight. My baby is a little tank, and it shows. The doctor has no issues or concerns about her weight, though. Chubby babies = healthy babies. She usually eats about 4oz in one feeding, but when she wants to she can put away a full 9oz bottle in one go. The benefit to this is we can occasionally pump her full of 9oz right at bedtime and get a solid 4.5 hours of sleep. Usually though, she’s still not a great sleeper.
Overall, she’s still a very happy baby. She’s in size 1 diapers and 0-3 clothes. She’s happiest when she’s being held, which is fine with me – I love holding her. It’s just a little bit frustrating that she also primarily prefers to sleep being held. We’re working on it. When she’s happy, she has the most beautiful smile. She’s chatty and is usually cooing and making noises (although we’re still waiting for that laugh). When she gets into a fussy mood, nothing but being held will calm her down. She hates her car seat and tummy time, but really not much else. She even seems to love her bath time. If only she were just slightly better at sleeping through the night, she’d be the absolute perfect baby, but she’s pretty damn close.
At her doctor’s visit today, she also had her first round of vaccines today – Rotarix which vaccines against Rotavirus, as well as the DTaP, Hib, Hepatitis B, Polio and PCV13. She was a champ though – she cried just for a second when she was stuck, but was done crying before the doctor even put the bandaid on her. Now she’s a little fussy and has slept most of the day but otherwise she seems great! They had us stay a few minutes just to make sure she wasn’t going to have any weird reactions or whatever, but she’s absolutely fine and we’re very glad. (Although those bandaids in that picture on her poor chubby legs D:)
We’re expecting a bunch of new & fun things to come in the next month – giggles, rolling over and who knows what else is going to come!
