2 Months Old
Yay!  We Did It!

Time is absolutely flying by!  Charlie Kate’s Milestones:  rolling over from her stomach to her back, holding her head up, sleeping through the night still (six hours), smiling, cooing, kicking, and following objects with her eyes from side to side.  She is not a huge fan of tummy time so it will only last around five to seven minutes.  We have been to a wedding, and a baby shower that were out of town.  She did great on both trips.  We are taking her to church and for little outings to hang out with our families.  We have tried going for a walk and it didn’t last very long.  She doesn’t love her car seat when she gets tired, and she was too hot.  We’ll have to try it indoors in between her feeding and nap next time.  This change is getting to be more of “the norm”.  We Love her more and more each day!

Bath Time

Charlie Kate is SIX Weeks Old!
We are learning so much!  She eats every 2.5 hours, sleeps through the night (six hours), and has started smiling and cooing.  She is so sweet when she wakes up, and when I wake her to eat.  She has mixed feelings about her bath time.  She definitely wants to eat and immediately sleep after her bath.  She has to be cuddled close and bounced to get to sleep for naps.  We are still trying different napping places.  She likes her crib, and will do well in the car-seat for a while.  She naps the best in my arms (Which I LOVE!)  I couldn’t live without the video monitor or Halo Swaddle Sleep Sack.  She is growing so much and getting so long.  At Charlie Kate’s last doctor appointment she measured 23 inches long and weighed 9lbs. 2 oz.  She will get her shots in 3 weeks.  I have been so worried and nervous about EVERYTHING!  From sickness and shot reactions to who she will be friends with when she gets older. Ha!  I have chilled out a lot since the first few weeks of hormonal changes, and am reassured that God is in control.  That fact allows Jon and me to sleep at night and takes a load of pressure of perfection off of me.  We are so thankful!
