Mallory Two Month Update



Mallory got to meet even more family members this month! My dad and two of my three sisters all came to visit us. This girl certainly isn't short on love!

This month Mallory improved even more with her nursing. She is breast feeding with the nipple shield about 70% of the time, 20% of the time without and 10% with a bottle just so she remembers how to do it. I'm absolutely thrilled with this progress. I'd be lying if I said there wasn't a point in the beginning where I thought I would end up exclusively pumping.

Mallory's two month appointment is actually a couple of days after she turns two month's so I will include her stats with the next update. She certainly is growing though! In all 0-3 and 3 month clothing. 

We are really enjoying the beginning of the non gas related smiles. She sure does light up the room :)

She is starting to warm up to bath time. I have been putting a space heater in the bathroom with us and just getting in with her. She nurses while I wash her then we just kind of sit and play/talk until she's ready to get out. The getting out part is still a little rocky, but I think we are on to something...



BABY GEAR

- Mallory wears these plain onesies in both long and short sleeve all day everyday either under her clothes or by itself [unless her dad dresses her then, who knows!]. They seem to keep her warm and act as a nice barrier for the constant spit up.

- The constant spit up means Mal is almost always sporting a bib.

- Now that life has kind of gone back to "normal", we are out and about more. We have the Britax B-Safe carseat and the BOB Revolution SE stroller. We are extremely happy with them both! Can't wait for the weather to be nicer in Alaska so we can start going for runs together. Only draw back to this stroller is that there is not a cup holder for Mom. Where am I supposed to put my coffee water?!

- I'm really enjoying my Kate Spade diaper bag. Thats not to say that I have figured out what exactly belongs in a diaper bag...trial by error so far haha


When did your little one start showing interest in books? What are some of your favorites?

  1. Goodnight Moon is a favorite for YEARS! You could probably start reading it to her now because the colors are nice.

    1. I started reading Goodnight Moon to Mal while I was pregnant :) The only books she "likes" right now are Thomas The Train...she gets a kick out of his face.
