Claire's 2 Month Milestones

2 month milestones - 2/22/12

Height - 21.5"

Weight - 11 lbs 4 oz

Sleeping - This month was a rough one in the sleep department. Around 4-5 weeks our friend colic hit. Yep, he just couldn't stay away. We tried everything. Gripe water, mommy cutting out dairy, tomatoes, and chocolate. Nothing worked. Mommy was exhausted, daddy had to sleep in the extra bedroom to get any sleep and you were so miserable. During the day you were fine but from 6-10 every night you screamed and cried. So we started looking for other remedies. Nonna and some other friends suggested a chiropractor. Nonna googled chiropractors in our area and found Dr. P. I called and he said we could come right in. He started adjusting you at 6 weeks and we are starting to see light at the end of the tunnel. Mommy also noticed you won't take a paci and gag on bottles so we are looking into that.

Funny thing is in all this, you sleep for about 6 hours after the screaming ends. Then wake up to eat and go back to sleep for 3-4 hours. During the day your naps are 30 mins to 1.5 hours.

Eating - you have been eating like a champ! Every 3 to 4 hours during the day and go for a 6-7 hour stretch at night.

New discoveries - your hands, your bath, you don't like it when mommy eats lots of salads,

New accomplishments - you smiled at 6 weeks! You slept for 6 hours straight around then as well.

Places you went - to OK for Uncle Daniel's birthday and Grandad's 80th birthday celebration. Mim and Papa came to see you.

Special Memories - seeing you smile for the first time. Rocking you night after night praying you would settle down and sleep. The peace you felt when you finally were able to sleep. Your first Valentine's Day and playdate with friends. Celebrating Grandad's 80th birthday on Leap Day.

Dear Claire- this month was a little rough for us all. Colic is no fun and we all had to learn to adjust because of it. Hopefully next month will be better. You did have some wonderfully sweet moments. I love that you will nap in my arms and are so at peace. You are growing and changing so much. You are so different than your sister and it's a good thing. Keeps me and Daddy on our toes. :) we love you so much sweet baby girl. Praying God continues to watch over you and that we are the Mommy and Daddy you need.

~Mommy & Daddy
