2 Months...

I realized a few minutes ago that I never posted about Emerson's 2 month birthday. I didn't mean to skip it, it just kind of happened. So, here it is. Better late than never, I guess!

Emerson is seriously, the sweetest baby ever! She loves to be held and she loves to be sang to. She is a Momma's girl through and through. When Gage was a baby, he loved his Momma, but nothing like her! Several times in the past week, I have been holding her and someone else wanted a turn. I gave her to them and instantly she would start crying. The second I take her back, it's over! As flattering as it is, it makes things hard sometimes. I'm just so thankful to have her and so thankful she loves me!

She is a great sleeper! She usually goes to bed around 8:30 or 9 and sleeps until about 2. She wakes up for a bottle and goes back to sleep until morning time! I'm so thankful for that as well! It is so hard to be sleep deprived and still function during the day. I think we are just about past all that and I couldn't be happier!

Typically she eats 5 ounces about every 3 hours. She is still on Gentlease and other than terrible constipation, it seems to be great for her! She hardly ever spits up and so far, she hasn't shown any signs of the dreaded...ACID REFLUX! Gage had that terribly and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. What a NIGHTMARE! I'm going to go ahead and knock on some wood now. Hopefully she won't get it!

We have had some pretty bad skin problems to deal with over the past month. Emerson is allergic to colognes. Therefore, every time someone holds her with cologne on or their laundry detergent is strong, her face breaks out really bad. Hopefully we can get it cleared up soon. I feel so sorry for her!

Other than crying when she's hungry, sleepy or wet, Emerson never cries! She is the best baby and always so happy! She loves her big Brother and smiles constantly when he's around! She's such a doll and I'm so happy to be her Mommy!

Happy 2 Months, Sissy! We love you!
