Preslee's 2nd month

Happy 2 months Preslee Bell Turner!

Things to remember about Preslee's second month:
  • You weigh 9 pounds this week! You are now gaining about an ounce a day!
  • You are still wearing newborn diapers and newborn clothes.
  • You are breastfeeding exclusively and doing much better. You take a bottle of breast milk very easily if we are out and about!
  • You are nursing for 45 min- every 3 hours during the day and but started sleeping 5-6 hour stretches in the 2nd month. And the week you turned 8 weeks you are only waking once in a 12 hour period at night! Momma is loving the sleep at night!
  • After you nurse, you are SO sweet!! You are talking so much and love to raise your eyebrows and try to make the noises we are making to you!
  • The day you turned 5 weeks old, we moved you to your crib! You still sleep on the nap nanny (incline) but inside the crib.
  • You are swaddled in the miracle blanket every time you sleep in the crib! You fight it for a few minutes but it helps keep you asleep since your arms like to be in the air!
  • You were diagnosed with reflux at 5 weeks and have been on 15mg of Prevacid a day.
  • We give you mylicon for gas, mylanta for reflux and gripe water for hiccups! You take all of it very well!
  • Your still fussy when your tired but I think your painful fussiness is a little better now!
  • You still don't always love the swing but you have taken a few naps in it. You really like your bright pink bouncy seat/rocker that has hanging toys. And you still LOVE laying on your changing pad! Thats where we do all our talking!
  • You try to swat/reach for toys on your bouncer and activity mat.
  • We still try to give you a pacifier but you just don't suck hard enough to keep it in your mouth.
  • At 7 weeks, you rolled over from your belly to your back! Nanny and Pop were here and LiLi just happened to be on FaceTime so everyone got to see it! Special moment!
  • You are getting to be so alert during the day and noticing so many things!
  • You have great neck control and hold your head up so well!
  • Your hair is growing and so far you haven't lost any!
  • You found your hands and have started to suck on your fist! I wish you would suck your thumb since you still don't love the paci!
  • You don't normally love your carseat but at 7 weeks old, you slept all the way to Arkadelphia and back!
  • You have found the living room big tv and will watch it for long periods of time!
  • You really enjoy your bath and sleep so good after your bedtime bath!
  • You have started to really smile at mommy and daddy! You recognize our voices and we just love when you talk to us!
  • Your 2 month doctors appt. was this week and you cried harder than I have ever seen when you got your shots but were quickly settled down by immediately nursing! I gave you tylenol every 4 hours and thankfully you had no side effects from the shots!
Cute ruffle booty and really crazy hair! :)
Preslee- This month has been so much easier for mommy! I have loved every day with you, even the fussy ones! You are my little doll and I love dressing you up even when we have no where to go! I love you more than words can say!

Hey Julee! Preslee is PRECIOUS and I really don't want to be rude AT ALL! But I've heard that it's very dangerous to use a nap nanny anywhere but the floor - i'm not judging I'm sure you know what's best for sweet Preslee, just so you are aware -http://www.napnanny.com/question/can-the-nap-nanny®-be-placed-inside-a-crib-for-night-time-sleeping/

Love hearing about what Preslee is doing in the second month, gives me a little heads up on what to expect with Elliott. They sound like they already have a lot in common: he only sleeps on the Nap Nanny in his cradle too, and also cannot get the hang of the pacifier. Maybe one day soon they can have a play date!

So sweet!!! What is it about the changing table? We have some of our best "conversations" there too! She is a doll, enjoy!!!

Diane said...

She's so cute Julee! Glad this month has been easier on you.

She is just so super cute!! I have loved watching her grow!! If you want her to take a paci try putting gripe water or mylicon on the tip of it when you give it to her or give it to her right after you give her those things since she is probably using the sucking motion get them down. That is the only way I can get our baby boy to take one but it almost always works!!!!!

Can't wait to see more months of Preslee!!!

You will be so grateful that you are keeping such detailed notes. I didn't write anything down & it is all a blur. So happy for you!

Where did you get that ruffled booty onesie!!!! Preslee is so beautiful. My little girl just turned four months and the pottery barn chair is the best place for pictures!!

Sara said...

I am so happy that this second month has been a bit easier. Preslee is just beautiful and I love her hair. I guess it would make since that your daughter would have great looking hair:)

Thought I'd share my paci tip. Our little guy had a hard time keeping his in so we tried the wubbanub : http://www.wubbanub.com/home.html. I'm nursing him and this is the kind of paci that was suggested to me for nursing moms. The little animals help prop up the paci so that they don't fall out of their mouths as easily. Might be worth trying. Preslee is a beauty!!! Congrats on your sweet girl!
