Ava Kate - 2 months

Playing catch-up again!  Ava Kate is almost 4 months but I'm just now getting around to posting her 2 and 3 month updates.  I started the post a while back but never got around to finishing them.  That seems to be a common thing with me since becoming a mother of two!  Ha!  Maybe one day I'll get it all together...but I wouldn't count on it!

Ava Kate at 2 months...

 Things you're doing now....

  • You weigh about 8 lbs
  • You're still wearing newborn diapers but not for too much longer
  • You are wearing mostly newborn clothes, but I keep trying on all your cute 0-3 month clothes and you're almost big enough

  • You're still nursing most of the time, but you've starting taking a few bottles of breast milk!!  This is really exciting for mom!
  • You're drinking about 3-3.5 oz at each bottle
  • You are not on any type of schedule
  • You still like to eat every 2-3 hours 
  • You still wake up 2-3 times per night and the longest you've slept is 4 hours

  • You're still a pretty fussy baby and like things done a certain way...such a diva already!!
  • You love your car seat and I'm positive you would sleep all night if we would let you sleep in it
  • You getting a little more head control, but you still have a ways to go!

  • You're a lot more alert now
  • You love watching your brother and he is so sweet with you.  He loves to give you hugs and kisses

  • You started smiling just a few days before Thanksgiving, but you still make us work really hard for it!
  • You really like laying in Owen's bed while he's getting ready for bed at're alway so content there

  • You like you're paci, but not near as much as your brother did.  You still have a hard time keeping it in and get mad when it falls out.
  • You absolutely LOVE your lovies!  You love to hold it with both hands and sleep best when it's over your face!
  • You've started laying on your play mat and in your bounce seat, but you're not to sure about them yet.  You just lay there and stare

  • Bath time is one of your favorite things.  It wears you out and you always take a nap afterwards, but you absolutely love it.
  • You also really enjoy your massage after bath time.  It's great bonding time with mommy!  
  • You are starting to lose your hair just like your brother did at this age.  And it's always so spiky after bath!
  • You don't look a lot like your brother, but there are a few pictures where ya'll look very similar because of your expressions.  Here's one of you both at 2 months.  Ava Kate on the left and Owen on the right.
