Mom & Baby 2 month Update

I can’t believe it’s been over 2 months already!! Audrey is such an easy going baby. She’s sleeping through the night and has been for weeks, which is amazing. I thought Claire was a good sleeper but looking back it did take a little more work to get her sleeping through the night, with Audrey I’ve just keep to our routine and we’re good. I’ve been using the Babywise method {as I did with Claire} and it’s working like a charm. I’m a schedule person, it’s just who I am. Without schedule and routine my life feels like chaos. She is a huge eater. At her 2 month appointment she weighed in at 13 lbs 5 oz and was 23.5 inches long! Anytime she’s not sleeping or eating, she’s smiling! She’s a very happy baby and started smiling pretty early at around 3 weeks. She’s also starting to talk a little more which is fun! Of course, she’s a baby, so she does cry and have her fussy moments. She especially hates getting her diaper changed and having clothes put on or taken off.

It’s fun to see the differences in personalities. Claire wasn’t a good eater {and still isn’t!}, she was more stubborn, it took her longer to start sleeping through the night and she was a lot more fussy going down, she didn’t like to be held much or be in a front pack carrier, she wanted to see what was going on and was perfectly content laying on her back on her activity mat to see all that was around her. She also was a lot louder, in probably everyway- her happy squeals, crying etc. She was also a happy baby and gave out plenty of smiles. Audrey is more of a cuddly baby, she likes to be held, and loves the front carriers. She likes to see what’s going also but while she’s in someone’s arms 🙂

Claire has been a great big sister, she loves baby Audrey. But she’s starting to get a little frustrated with the amount of help she’s allowed to do. Last night I asked Claire to hand me a diaper and she let out a huge sigh and said “when am I going to get to change a diaper?” hahah. It was pretty cute. She’s been going to school better these days {the first few weeks back it was a meltdown every day and she really didn’t want to go anywhere without the baby}, but besides school she still doesn’t want to go anywhere without Mom, Dad or baby. The last couple weeks she’s been acting out a bit more. The few weeks with Audrey we had several visitors and each one came with a gift for Claire…big sister life was great! Also, Dad was home, so she and him got to go on plenty of special outings. Now life is a little more boring and it’s been pretty tough.

At my 6 week postpartum appointment I was cleared to start running. I’ve actually been really antsy to start running, but I’m still trying to figure out how to best fit it into the schedule. So far I’ve done two 3 milers on the treadmill. But I need to step it up because I signed up for a half marathon at the May…am I crazy?? It’s good motivation for me though, even if the race turns into a walk/run it will be good to get back at it!

Well that’s all the updates I’ve got for now. Hoping to work in more time for blog posts in my daily schedule, so stay tuned 🙂

Audrey’s Nursery

I’m happy to finally share a little bit of Audrey’s nursery with you all! With Claire I had her nursery set up and ready to go weeks, if not months before her arrival. Well, Audrey’s been in this world almost 4 weeks already and her room’s still not done.
