Lizzy turned two months old last week and she became such a happy baby. Smiling at us and making funny noises as if she wants to talk to us. Such a joy to our life!!! 😀
Eating: she’s been eating well, 5-6 times a day, between 3-5 oz. of pumped milk or 15 min of nursing. This month she started to refuse bottle for the night feeding, for no apparent reason. We tried few nights and she just wouldn’t take it even if she hasn’t eaten for +6 hrs. She was definitely hungry, crying but still not wanting the bottle. I’ve read that babies tend to need mommy the most in the evening. It has nothing to do with being hungry or not, but needing the bounding and security from mom. So I nurse her now. Since it’s only once, I don’t mind at all. However, it got me worried that if she doesn’t take bottle, then what are we gonna do when I go back to work. Fortunately she takes bottles during the day.
Sleeping: she sleeps really well. She wakes up between 6:30-7am, naps around 8am, 12pm, 4pm for 2.5-3 hrs usually, many times we have to wake her up, otherwise she could continue. Her last nap is a bit shorter, 1.5 to 2 hrs because we want to make her bed time before 7:30pm. She still naps in the swing but sleeps in the crib at night. She goes down before 7:30pm, she’d wake up for a feeding anytime between 2-4am. One time she went all the way through 4:30am. I don’t even change her during evening feeding, I simply feed her, wrap her up and put her back to the crib. She doesn’t always fall asleep right away but she doesn’t demand company either.
She likes taking bath, looking at us talking to her, or simply checking out her surroundings.
We are so lucky to have such an angel baby.
She loves to stretch after eating and we love seeing this face!
She’s developing a bound with grandma. For unknown reason, grandma always finds the most comfortable position to hold Lizzy.
Daddy’s job is to change her diapers and to takes thousands of pics and videos of her. Since we know this age goes so fast! we want to record every bit of her development, or simply face of the day. 🙂
She makes us company during dinner time. She doesn’t participate yet, she simply quietly observes us and listen to us. So sweet.
She started to respond to our attempt to make her laugh.
She’s even a good company to us at restaurants.
The only times when she cries is when she is hungry or ready to sleep. Once we feed her or put her to sleep, she’s happy again.
Although she’s not as interactive as Sofia, but she’s soooo cute! She’s like the doll of the family. I remember when Sofia was little, I’d want her to grow so she could amaze us with each of the milestones. But with Lizzy, I’m not in a hurry. I am enjoying this stage because I know she is probably my last baby and I want to enjoy the little baby feeling for as long as I can. With Tony we often say if we could, we want to keep her at the current stage forever!!!
