Two Months ♡

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.  Continue reading

Ceres is TWO Weeks already!

So, according to theBump, I’m literally carrying around a full sized watermelon. A watermelon that is flexing and kicking, and also has fingernails that already need to be trimmed. (NOT that I can feel them, but the idea of that is honestly the scariest thing I’e read so far.) Also, she’s already preparing for her first poop. Isn’t pregnancy magical, y’all? Continue reading
