Baby CDS: Months 2 & 3

Baby CDS continues to be the sweetest baby you could imagine. She's so easy going I can hardly believe it. Months two and three with our littlest girl were great!

At 2 months old Baby CDS started smiling. My very favorite! I love looking at my sweet girl and seeing a big smile fill her face.

Baby CDS is still a big girl. We went in for her well child check up and she was 14 pounds, 6.5 ounces (99th percentile) and 25 inches long (100th percentile). She's very long and lean, much like Miss A was as a baby. The doctor suggested we make sure she's looking both directions when she's laying on her back because she has a bit of a flat spot on the back of her head, but that it's not too bad right now.

She's a chill baby during the day, going along with our adventures with very little crying and she sleeps well at night too. She's not consistently sleeping through the night, but she occasionally makes it through the night and when she doesn't, she sleeps long stretches and goes right back to sleep after I feed her.

Baby CDS started going to Kid Stuff at the Y a few times a week just after she hit the six week mark, and so far she's doing really well. She mostly sleeps while I'm gone, or hangs out with a teacher or in a swing watching what Lady C is up to.

Three months brought even more, aid even bigger smiles from Baby CDS. I love how her smiles light up her whole face. It's amazing! She will give anyone a smile, but she's especially smiley for family. Miss A and Little J both love when they can make her smile! Lady C continues to love her most of all. Baby CDS is the one person who Lady C never gets mad at, and Baby CDS is sure to make Lady C smile (and say, "Hi Baby, Hi Baby, Hi Baby" on repeat). Baby CDS also gets lots and lots of hugs and kisses from all three big sisters. Baby CDS has also started babbling a little, and she makes laughing sounds when we give her the pacifier.

She is happy to take the pacifier when offered to her, but if there is no pacifier around, she supplements with her thumb. I am trying to keep her using the pacifier, but we'll see who wins that one.

Baby CDS is still in 3 month and 3-6 month clothes, but they are getting really tight. I'll be switching out clothes to 6 month sizes soon. We also had to retire the newborn swaddles for bigger sizes.

So far there's no real routine to Baby CDS's days, but she's a great sleeper so far. I know that can (and probably will) change any time, but Baby CDS rarely wakes up more than once a night and sometimes sleeps through the night. In fact, there has been more than one morning when I've had to wake her up in the morning after 7 because she's been sleeping for 12 hours. It's amazing what a full night of sleep can do for a tired mama!
