Weight: 13 pounds, once again this girl is the same weight as Eli at this age. She still seems so much bigger than Eli did; I’m guessing it’s her height that is lagging, making her a bit more round 🙂
Feeding: Zoë is still exclusively breastfed as of right now. At about 7 weeks I started feeding Zoe a bottle for her last feeding because she was too anxious and psychotic about getting food into her before bed that is was not a pleasant experience. She has been slowly burning through my freezer supply and I don’t think breastfeeding will last much longer than 4 months. That being said, while I had high hopes of feeding longer with Zoe that I did with Eli; I don’t hate having a baby that is gaining weight on schedule and is such a tremendous sleeper.
Naps: Zoe is the quintessential second child. She goes with the flow beautifully, taking 4-5 naps a day. She usually takes shorter naps in the morning and around noon and then takes one big long nap in the afternoon. She is a dream to put down as long as we pay attention and do not let her get overtired- girl needs her sleep!
Sleep: Still beautiful and glorious! Zoe goes down for bed anywhere between 7 and 8 depending upon her last nap and sleep for an average of 11 hours. We have had a couple nights where she has woken up in the middle of the night, but typically if she is wrapped tight enough, she stays asleep. She is also a dream to put down, ocean sounds, miracle blanket, binky: walk out the door.
Clothing: Moving into her 3-6 month clothes right on schedule! She is a bit of a spit up baby, so we go through way more clothes with her than we did with Eli.
Development: She chats a lot with us in the mornings, clings to us when we hold her. She rolled over on accident one day, but hasn’t done it since. She has started watching toys and really chewing on her hands; basically she is about to get really really fun! She has really started to show her personality. Zoe likes to be given some space, if she is held for too long or not held facing out, she lets you know!
Likes: Zoe loves baths, kisses, Eli, eating and sleeping.
Dislikes: Clothes going over her head, not given her space, tummy time.
Sibling Update: Still loads and loads of love between these two. Eli loves to “carry” her from one room to the next and anytime she fusses, he runs in to let me know I’m needed. Zoë gives him the best kisses and is just so content to watch him run circles around her.
Mom and Dad Update: Things are going really really great. We just celebrated our 11 year wedding anniversary and I couldn’t get over what a perfect time in our lives this is right now. I’m officially back at work now and it has been nice to be out and gain some independence back. Being at work is made especially easy by having such a chill baby at home that I don’t need to stress about. For my part, I’m loving having more than one kid so much that I want four. For Kenny’s part, he is quite content with our two littles 😀.
