Harper: 2 Months

Harper Kate is two months old today! She's our super smiley sweetheart, and we think she's pretty great.

(Well she usually smiles. She had her 2 month shots today and took a 5.5 hour nap. She hasn't been happy since.)

She weighs 12 lbs 5 oz (90%), is 23.5" long (90%), and has a head circumference of 15.75" (75%).

Harper wears size 0-3 month clothes, but I'm about to put away her sleepers and get out the 3-6s. She's getting too long for those! She's in cloth diapers most of the time, but she sometimes wears size 1 disposables.  

I know we're totally spoiled, but she sleeps through the night already and has for a couple weeks. She usually goes down for the night around 8 or 9 and wakes up at 7 when her siblings come in the room a little too loudly. She's still sleeping in our room at night (in the pack 'n play bassinet), but I've been putting her in her crib for naps on Tuesdays and Thursdays when Avery and Landon are at Mother's Day Out. She naps really well when it's quiet! Otherwise, we try to let her nap whenever she can; it's hard being the third baby and not getting much of a schedule!

Harper gives us lots of smiles and coos when she's awake. She really loves her big brother and sister. She's usually being held when she's awake, so she doesn't get much floor time yet (oops).

She's still exclusively breastfed (she eats every 2-3 hours) but takes a bottle like a champ when she needs to. She's only had about five bottles in her life, but it's nice that she'll take one if I need to go out.

Harper hates her car seat most of the time. She screams if she's awake in it. That makes car rides lots of fun, but it doesn't seem to bother her siblings.

Baby girl found her thumb! Sometimes I hear her wake up and start moving around, and when I check on her, she's just sucking away. I've given up on trying to get her to like the pacifier, so whatever works. 

We're so in love with this precious girl, especially now that everyone seems to have adjusted and come through the tumultuous new-baby phase. We can't wait to watch her grow up, but I hope she stays little for as long as possible. At least long enough for me to soak up every ounce of her baby-ness.

We love you, Harper!
