Dear Kelsey Jane,
It's hard to believe you are already two months old. The days just seem to fly by and I try to take time each day to just sit and enjoy you. You love to smile and coo and cuddle so you make it easy to want to spend time with you!
At your two month appointment you weighed 11 pounds and were 23 inches. You are about 1/2 a pound smaller than your brothers at this point (they both weighed 11'7 at theirs!). The doctor was pleased with your growth especially given our troubles with nursing and weight gain the first month.
You are doing such a great job with nursing now. One day it just seemed to click with you. After your first months appointment the doctor said it was ok to let you sleep at long as you could during the night so we cut out the last bottle which was the first time you woke up at night. You tend to go to bed anywhere between 930 and 10:30 and will sleep anywhere between 3 and 5:30. It's usually a 6 to 7 hour stretch which is great! You still sleep a lot during the day but it's never consistent. Sometimes you have awake time in the mornings and sometimes in the evenings. It just varies day to day.
You really are a happy baby. You are very talkative in the morning when you wake up or right before bed. You just smile and coo whenever you see me or your Daddy. It's precious! I love hearing your little noises. Stafford will often comment, "Kelsey is talking to me!"
You became an international traveler this month and met both sets of grandparents. You did great on our trip to Canada, taking your first ferry ride and spending the night in a hotel. Mama and Daddy also go to enjoy a couple of date nights thanks to the grandparents.
You are just starting to wear your 0-3 month clothes and I got a little sad putting the newborn ones away. However, I will admit it is pretty fun each time I get to get out a new outfit. I love shopping for you and dressing you! There is a lot of pretty pink in this house! You are still wearing newborn diapers but after we finish this box you'll be on to size 1!
We love you so much Kelsey Jane. You fit right into our sweet little family. Your brothers think you are so wonderful and your Daddy and I agree!
Mama & Daddy
