Sadie {2 Months}

It feels like I just did Sadie's one month post, and now here I am working on her two month post! Time is flying by!!

5 weeks - She wasn't feeling the pictures this week, so the paci was a must!
6 weeks - A smile!

7 weeks
8 weeks

- At her two month check-up, Sadie weighed 12 pounds, 13 ounces {75th percentile} and was 24 inches long {95th percentile}. Her head circumference was 15.5 inches {50-55th percentile}. She's wonderfully healthy! 💕

- She got one shot and one oral vaccination at her first announcement. I *hate* shots!! She was definitely startled at the shot and cried for just a second, then she took her paci and was okay. She did seem extra sleepy all day, though.

- She can still wear a few newborn outfits and sleepers, but most of her clothes are now 0-3 month or 3 month. We are still using newborn diapers {only because I bought too many of those and we're trying to use them up} during the day, but we put size one diapers on her at night.

- She definitely keeps us guessing with her sleep schedule. The night before she was six weeks old {June 29th}, she slept from about 10:00-5:15 {this is the same night Emery slept through the night for the first time!} and we were so excited! BUT, it turns out she was just messing with us. She's done that maybe 5-6 times {once till 6:15} and has woken up once or twice every other night. We are so ready for her to sleep through the night consistently! It seems like she can only go 4-5 hours before waking up again to eat, but then she'll only eat maybe 2 ounces before falling back to sleep. Sometimes after that she'll only sleep another 2 hours before waking up again. She definitely has us confused, that's for sure. I am thankful that she usually goes right back to sleep, though. After reading Emery's two month post, I'm wondering if we need to try feeding her more before bedtime.

- Sadie eats 4 ounces about every 3 hours. Sometimes she'll only make it two hours between feedings, and other times she'll wait four hours.

- She took her first nap in her crib on June 22nd and did great! I had to go in and give her her paci a couple of times, but then she fell asleep for about 20 minutes. I gave her her paci and turned her sound machine on and she fell asleep for over an hour before I had to wake her up to eat. She's taken a few more naps in her bed since then. Some have been good and some have been not so good.

- Speaking of naps, Sadie was a terrible napper at the beginning of this month, but has started to get a lot better. She would sleep for 15-30 minutes and would not go back to sleep unless we were holding her. The last week or so, she's been eating, staying awake for an hour and 15 minutes to an hour and a half, then sleeping for an hour and a half or more. She'll usually wake up about halfway through, but has been going back to sleep more often once I give her her paci {sometimes I have to do this a few times}. Rubbing her head also makes her very sleepy and will sometimes help her go back to sleep. She has also taken some great naps in her car seat!

- She's very good at going to sleep on her own {usually after we give her her paci a few times}, which we're very thankful for! We love to hold her while she sleeps, but can't always do that, so it's nice that she'll go to sleep by herself once we lay her down.

- Sadie still loves to be swaddled and is not nearly as good at getting her arms out as Emery was!

- She also loves her paci even more this month, I think, but she's happy without it unless she's getting really sleepy. It does help her go to sleep, but she usually doesn't wake up if it comes out of her mouth.

- Bath time is much easier now, too. Last month, she screamed through most of her baths, but she likes them better now and will kick her little feet in the water. I think Emery likes Sadie's baths even more, though. She loves to help and wants to give Sadie a bath multiple times a day! She'll say, "I think we need to take Sadie a bath." 😂

- One of my notes that I wrote down this month was that she didn't like her swing, but she's definitely changed her tune on that. She seems to love it now, and will almost always go to sleep and take a great nap if she's tired!

- If we're home, she always sleeps with a sound machine on. She seems to like the ocean setting. Emery is always trying to change it to songs and will tell me, "Sadie likes the music better." 😂

- Sadie loves to look at the ceiling fan, just like her sister!

- She got baby acne around 5 weeks which is right around the time Emery got it! It has cleared up for the most part, but her face is still a little bumpy to the touch. You can't tell she has it by looking at her, though.

- Sadie loves to be talked to and will move her mouth like she's trying to talk back. Sometimes she'll smile and make the sweetest little sounds. Speaking of smiles, we're getting a lot more of them these days which is just precious. She does this cute little nose crinkle sometimes, too. We love it! 😍

- She really is such a good baby. She had a few fussy days this month where she just wanted to be held all the time, but for the most part, she's very happy and content and usually only cries when she's hungry or getting tired. We're so thankful for such a sweet little baby.

- As for Emery, we still could not ask for her to be a sweeter big sister. While she did act out toward us a little bit when we first got home, she has never shown one sign of jealousy toward Sadie. She couldn't love her more and we're so thankful! She loves to give Sadie her paci {even when she doesn't want it, but she's getting better about that}, help feed her and burp her {she'll say, "Is there a little burp-y in there?"}, help give her a bath, and pick out her PJs or her clothes for the day. She'll talk to her in the sweetest {and *very* high-pitched} voice and gets so excited when Sadie smiles at her. It is just so sweet. Sometimes if Sadie is hungry and I'm getting her bottle, I'll ask Emery to talk to her and Sadie will calm right down. I'm praying they always love each other!
