Heidi Jean - the second month

Praying she keeps her beautiful blue eyes but I won't be surprised if they change. Brown is dominant. I've done well with brown eyes so either way, she'll be my gorgeous girl.

She is battling colic something fierce. But, we will get through it. I'm lucky enough to get to be by her side 24/7 so we're just nursing around the clock. On the plus side, my milk production is doing fabulously this time around!

This month, we discovered that Gerber has a brand of colic drops that contain probiotics. I can now eat most dairy without any consequences for her!! (She is cheering with me in the photo above)

She sleeps in bed with me. Greg and Cole exiled themselves to Cole's queen sized bed upstairs. The frequent crying was keeping them up. I don't mind. She sleeps attached part of the time (which I try desperately not to doze off but fail sometimes) and she sleeps in a co-sleeper in Greg's spot the rest of the time. I don't swaddle her because it seemed to just make her more angry. I tried every swaddler under the sun but its just not for her. She doesn't startle herself awake so I don't think that is our problem. Sleep is extremely scarce around here. I had the adrenaline last month so I did much better. Its starting to catch up to me though. I'm trying to remind myself that those sweet quiet moments won't last forever so I'm trying to soak up each one. I love the sounds she makes while she nurses at night. She sighs so sweetly and breathes so softly. And I love to just smell her breath after she's asleep. It smells like pure sugar. Hope that's not weird. If you're a mom, you know how amazing those baby smells are. :) 

Cole was to the right of this frame and she seriously looked like she was going to deck him.

This picture doesn't properly show it but she does my half-grin and she has tons of dimples!

She is the most smiley thing! There is a sweet soul in there in wonder at the world around her. I hope she finds amusement in the simple things because that is a feature I'm grateful for in myself. There is never a dull moment.

We had to give you your first bottle since you decided nursing strikes were more fun than actual nursing. I think its trauma from having your tongue tie fixed last month. Who can blame you. We'll get through it.

My darling girl, 

You are so brave and good to us. As two month olds go, you're the sweetest! You make me so happy I could burst. I am so happy to have a little girl in my life to share everything with. There is so much to being a woman in our world and I can't wait to teach you all of the fun things. We're going to have so much fun growing up together!! We already are. I love you so much. You smell like sugar and all things sweet. You're cuddly beyond description. You're my amazing little angel!

Love forever,

About Me

My photo
I'm a new wife and an even newer mom. I have a secret dream to be super-mom. I love to craft, cook, dance and fill my life with as many adventures as possible. I'm slightly crunchy granola but enjoy a good steak. I'm right brained and type B (with some type A tendencies). I thrive best when I get to use my creative juices. I dabble in photography and party planning. I play piano and have a dream to learn the cello. I want to make the most of this one, short life I find myself living.

About This Blog

This blog was originally intended to be a personal journal of my pregnancy journey and all that that entails--shared with only a few close family members. It was a way for me to keep them posted on all things baby and occasionally post a picture of my growing torso so they could see the progress. After several posts, I started to get hooked on other blogs and became motivated to attempt to do more with mine. We'll see how it goes....
