September already? Time is flying faster every day. Vivian is developing her own personality and experimenting with facial expressions and sounds. Sometimes we’ll think she’s crying, but really she is just sitting happy letting out a few yells.
She had a busy month – we went to visit GG and Pop Pop on the way to Keuka Lake and she slept through the night for the first time! I was actually able to get up, shower, and eat breakfast before feeding her. AH-MAZING. The trend continued at Keuka Lake – a solid 7 hours each night! She loved being at Keuka. The breeze and waves were soothing, and she was cuddled by all of her family constantly.
It took a few days to get back into our schedule, but she was sleeping 8 hour stretches at night in no time! It’s not every night, but those few nights when she does sleep lets me and Bob refresh.
She has begun recognizing faces and voices and greets familiar ones with a HUGE smile. Morning is her best time, but you can generally get a smile out of her at any time.
and WOW is she growing! Her two month checkup was on Wednesday, and she gained almost 2 1/2 pounds!! She is on an exclusive breastmilk diet, eating an average of every 3 hours during the day, so everything is right with the world. She’s a growing girl! Best Part? THE CHUNK! oh the chunk! so many little baby thigh rolls and a double chin!
