Sophie at 2 Months

Last week Sophie turned 2 months old and I went back to work. So far we are all adjusting to the change quite well. Sophie has enjoyed spending so much time with daddy, and Dave now understands how it is possible to stay home, get nothing done, and still be exhausted at the end of the day. Her big accomplishments this past month were learning to smile and discovering that it's better to sleep and night and be awake in the day - hallelujah!

~ Sophie at 2 Months ~
  • 22.5 inches long (50th percentile) and 10 pounds 9 ounces (50th percentile)
  • Is wearing size 3 month clothing, which fit great except for pajamas that all seem to be too short
  • Goes to bed around 10:30 pm, wakes up for a feeding around 3:30 am and then goes back down until 6:30 am when I feed her again before leaving for work
  • Is a very happy baby unless food is involved - if she is hungry her patience lasts about 5 seconds before she starts shrieking
  • Tries to put anything within reach into her mouth - binky, fingers, toys, blankets, etc...
  • Is learning to hold onto toys and wave them around, although she frequently hits herself in the face when she gets really excited
  • Is very vocal and "talks" to us all day long
  • Smiles all the time!

Dave also took Sophie in for her 2 month check-up and she got 5 shots - poor girl. She had a sad look on her face all night, even when she was sleeping :(
