8 weeks


Tessa Nell turned 8 weeks old this past wednesday! She is outgrowing most of her newborn clothes and that makes me so sad! She is quite a delightful baby girl though.... she has started to notice toys and loves to sit in her "kick and play" bouncy seat. She also enjoys watching her mobile. She is full of huge grins and sweet smiles for us and loves watching her big brother as he runs circles around all of us! She still is nursing every 3 hrs during the day with the last feeding at 10 pm. than she is up around 3:30-4:30 for just a few minutes ( some nights only 10 minutes) and than she goes right back to sleep until around 7. I really think she could prob go without the 4 ish feeding but am just too tired to keep plugging her back up with the paci so I just nurse her and lay her right back down. I am still swaddling her although I think we will slowly make it looser and looser this next month. She is soo close to rolling onto her tummy from her back.

My favorite thing with her right now is seeing her smile and get all excited when she recognizes me and hearing her try to "talk" saying oohh and ahhh to me.... soo cute!

We saw Dr. Ben on Friday and she got 3 shots and 1 oral medicine. Thankfully, she did not run a fever but was quite cranky yest afternoon.

2 month stats:
11 lbs
23 3/4 inches long
