“through the night.” I put that in quotation marks because technically she is sleeping through the night, but not enough for this mama. Mostly I am getting a 10pm-5am stretch with her, she eats at 10pm, down at 10:30, and I am usually in bed by 11. She wakes most nights at 5am and I lay her next to me and nurse her and we usually both pass out until 8am when she wakes to eat again which is right around the time Jase wakes up. Occasionally she makes it from 10pm all the way to 8am which makes me think we’ve made it and then we go right back to that 5am thing. I hope she gets it soon!
So I have no idea where time went, but I completely forgot to post Elyse’s 2 month update. I am sure she will forgive me some day. June was such a busy month with Jase turning two and Chad spending a week at camp and me alone with two kids.
Elyse has been busy the last two months. Little miss decided rolling over at just shy of 11 weeks was a good idea and she’s been rolling ever since. I thought it might have been a one time thing, but keeping that girl on her tummy now is an impossible task.
Elyse is the SWEETEST little thing around. She is so tender and sweet and smiles all the time. I often catch her smiling at her big brother’s crazy self running around and being as loud as he always is and it melts my heart. I know she is going to love him big time. She’s smiling and laughing a lot. She has this little squeak in her laugh that is the CUTEST thing I have ever heard. I am not just saying that because she’s mine, but come on, a squeak in her laugh…what could be cuter?!
Elyse has finally out grown her newborn clothes and I have packed them away and we have moved into 0/3 month. She is in the 20th percentile for height and weight following along in my pattern of itty bitty babies. She takes naps like a pro, but likes to tease mama on if she’s gonna sleep
Her favorite thing to do is sit up and look around and she absolutely loves being carried in a wrap. She’s timid of new people, and loves being close to her mama. She’s cooing and squealing more and more each day. I cannot believe how fast it is going. Does it go by faster the second time, because I sure do think so.
My sweet baby girl,
I just adore being your mama and watching you grow. I love your little squeak in your laugh, it brings me an unspeakable amount of joy. I love the way you cuddle right into me and bury your face into things when you’re sleepy. I love how you start to fuss when you realize you’re alone and the minute someone comes back into the room to assure you you’re alright you start smiling and cooing because all you wanted was some company. You’ve stolen my heart sweet girl, as you have everyone with the sweetest personality around. I love you baby girl…until next month.
