Willa - 2 Months!

*please note that this post was written on Nov 11th (her actual 2mo bday and photo was taken a few days after that)

Willa - you started out your second month of life with a trip to the ER...no fun! You caught sissy's cold and got a fever along with nasal/chest congestion. Mommy also eliminated cow's milk from her diet and you are sooooo much happier and comfortable. Even though I am sure craving pizza, creamy dips and ice cream - I'm totally willing to put those delicious foods on hold until your tummy is ready.

Willa, you have become even chubbier with lots of little rolls and crevices to love. You are a great eater, weighing in at almost 13 pounds! Eating 4-5 oz every feeding. Usually one HUGE poop each day. Almost out of size 1 diapers...really?! I kinda sorta bought too many size 1's not realizing you'd grow so fast...

Mommy and Daddy still have you as a roommate, you will probably stay with us until after the holidays or until you are sleeping through the night (which you are starting to do and it's awesome). You take a good morning nap but are awake most of the afternoon until about 5. In the evenings you are starting to go bed earlier and earlier. Avery is anxious to have you upstairs with her! She wants to know when Willa will sleep in her crib :)

You started daycare this week and although we love Tammy, not being there to cuddle and comfort you all day makes mommy sad. Oh and the thought of more colds and sickness makes mommy sad, too. But you will love all the attention you will get from your new friends and learning new things from watching them play. And having big sis there gives me a peace of mind. 

Your favorite things to do are: lay on a blanket and have people talk to you, give lots of sweet smiles especially first thing in the morning, play patty-cake and so-big. You love taking a warm bath (your eyes get so big and I'm pretty sure you'd stay in the tub for awhile if i let you) and you still also love to eat! (i know, what baby doesn't..)

You do not like: the bouncer or swing (that Avery was obsessed with!), being wet or poopy (especially at night) or being overtired

Your newest discoveries are: smiling, start to 'bat' at toys, improving at tummy time, following people move from across a room, cooing when being spoken to and kicking those arms & legs as fast as possible at the same time! 

Avery has really been loving to entertain you and help 'watch' you. She has been a great big sister who is ready and willing to be included in all the action. Except poopy diapers...those she just won't do!

The face Willa does first thing in the A.M.!

The many faces of Willa! So fun to see how in just 4 weeks she has changed so much! Anyone think she looks like Avery? :)

  1. I love her furrowed brow! You'll need to do a side-by-side to see if she looks like her big sis :)
