SJ – Month 2

04 September 2012|

Month 2:

Weight: 4,92kgs

Height: 54cm

Clothing size: Still in newborn and 0-3 months, but also slowly starting to fit into 1-3 months

Diaper size: Just moved to size 2

Feeding: 120mls every 2,5-3 hours. Now in a great daily routine, feeding at 7am, 10am, 12.30am, 3pm and 6pm)

Sleep: Still a little angel sleeper – she sleeps in between every feed during the day for 1,5-2 hours. At night, she goes down at 7pm, now waking only once at 3am and then wakes at 7am.

Milestones: She is focuscing well and following objects, she responds to noises, and she loves to smile, laugh and giggle.

Loves: Baths with daddy, cuddles and kisses, loves to sing and dance with mommy.

Dislikes: Having her hair washed or brushed, putting her arms through sleeves, being swaddled.

Adventures: We went on our first weekend getaway for Mother’s Day. We took both grannies to the Midlands and we had a wonderful time in the fresh air (and slept through first hail storm). Also went to first international rugby match in a Springbok baby outfit. 

Mommy and Daddy could not get through the month without: Victoria (or Gogo) who is the lady who helps us around the house and is our nanny. She is an amazing woman who absolutely adores SJ and I am so blessed to trust someone else with our little princess.
