And on the same day that I headed back to work with my part-time responsibilities, Nora turned 2 months old. I honestly cannot believe how fast time is passing!
Clothes: We're pretty much completely done with newborn clothes...unless her momma fails to pack the right size and we have to scrunch her little legs into a newborn sleeper. Of course, not that I would have any experience in that! I haven't packed away any of her newborn stuff quite yet...we'll see when I actually get motivated to get that done.
Personality: Our gassy, fussy little girl has made drastic improvements now that we've got my milk supply under control. She truly only fusses when she's tired or super hungry...and once she gives into her tired eyes, she's much happier. She has also learned that a pacifier can have some great soothing effects, so we keep these nearby. She's starting to give us those adorable gummy grins and is responding with some seriously precious cooing...I can't hardly stand it!
Rocking. I'm so thankful that we purchased two new rocker-recliners before she arrived. She loves to rock and this seems to be the easiest way to soothe her during her few & far between fussy periods.
Elyse. She is really starting to interact with Elyse and watch her every move. I know this is only going to increase drastically in the coming weeks and months and it's absolutely precious to watch.
Bathtime. This is an easy way to keep her awake or make her happy for a few moments before her nighttime feeding. I'm thankful that she doesn't seem to mind bathtime.
Her Momma. Yup, she's a momma's girl and I'm perfectly okay with that!
Clothing Changes. She doesn't really mind the diaper changes anymore, it's just the true clothing changes that she doesn't like. And I honestly can't blame her. We keep her so warm and cuddly that when it's time to change clothes I'm sure she gets quite chilly laying on her changing pad!
Nasal Aspirator. With the cold, dry air of the winter she's pretty much had a runny nose since she was born. Which means we get to use the nasal aspirator or the Nose Frieda quite frequently...baby girl is NOT A FAN!
Elyse & Nora: As I mentioned above their relationship continues to grow and grow. Elyse is a big helper and I'm so thankful that she's as independent as she is. We're having to work with Elyse on not messing with Nora while she sleeps...but other than that she's been great.
