So...not much blogging going on lately! Parker is growing like a little weed! I just love her SO much! She is really smiling a lot now and kicking around. She laughs but no sound comes out. Her dirty diapers have slowed down some...finally! She's sleeping for one period of time at night--usually from about 10-3:30, eats, and back up around 5:30-6. She has had some stomach problems, gas I guess, during the daytimes, but overall she's a good baby and doesn't cry a whole lot!
I'm still nursing her. I hope I can keep it up until at least three months old. I just pump at school to keep it going! Nursing creates such a bond (not that formula babies don't bond with their moms). I just love to stare at her while she nurses. She's begun stopping, while nursing, to look up at me and give a sweet little grin. I swear she's just saying, "I love you, Mama!" And then she goes right back to it!
She went in yesterday for her two-month checkup. She is now 24 1/4 inches long and weighs 12.3 pounds! She was 20 inches and 6.135 at birth. She has the fattest cheeks too. Her baby acne is finally clearing up. I'm so glad, although that is so minor compared to what some babies go through. We are just happy and blessed to have a healthy baby. Oh, the SHOTS were TERRIBLE! She was having such a good time on the table at the doctor's office, smiling, kicking, looking around and then that mean, ole' nurse came in and stabbed her! She had a shocked look for a split second and then screamed! It was so hard to see her like that. Thank goodness Troy was with us. He didn't like it either. But she was okay about 10 minutes afterward.
Love this little girl!
