On October 25th, our sweet Miss Mary Mac turned 2 months old. A lot has happened in these past two months, and she has been the best little baby. I am constantly amazed at how calm and laid back she has been so far. This is made even more amazing by the fact that Mary Mac has a three-year-old jumping/yelling/being loud in general around her 24/7. In this second month of life, she has gifted us with more regular sleep and got into a great groove of waking up only once in the morning, between 3am and 4am for a quick feed and then back to bed. I have been afforded the opportunity to start getting more done around the house with this more regular sleep schedule and it made me considerably less anxious about returning to work in just a few short days. I am so blessed by this precious girl and we are so grateful to have her in our family.
Weight: 12lbs, 15.5 oz – 85th percentile
Length: 23 inches – 74th percentile
Likes: Switched from her big sister’s pacis (Mams) to the Soothie, stretching out, and has started communicating via smiles and cooing! She also loves being on the go – riding in the car seat and shopping or just running errands with mommy.
Dislikes: She is so laid back, its been hard to find something she doesn’t really like. Although she does get very fussy if you don’t change her diaper quickly enough!
Sizes: Size 2 diapers, and moving out of 3 months and into 6months, but the best fit is 3-6months right now.
Sweet memories: This is more about her big sister, Emmy Mae, but when we went to the state fair, Emmy asked over and over to ride in the “basket heights” which was her way of describing the Ferris Wheel. Emmy is slowly starting to fall in love with her little sister. She wants to be right beside her as soon as she wakes up and insists on telling her goodnight before bed. She constantly has to be touching her or near her in some way. Watching their relationship grow has been so special, and I pray it only gets better with time!
