The second month has been filled with cooing. I love the sound of Juliet smiling and “talking” to her dad in the next room. The two of them always light up when they see each other. A few days ago she giggled for the first time and it was the best sound in the world. Better than any song I’ve heard. I could listen to it all day. Two months also meant Juliet went for her check up and that also meant vaccines!
I was looking into the possibility of spreading them out and in the end I just had her get them all. It was terrible and I never want to hear that horrible cry again… But, guess what. We get to do it all again in 2-4 months. Yay. It wasn’t that bad after her crying stopped and the next couple days we just cuddled and slept a lot.
I don’t really have routine for her other than a bath at night and getting her to go to sleep by 9pm. This month I’m going to get her to sleep in her crib more and we need to get her to take a bottle since I’ll be returning to work part time in late August.
I’m so excited for the developments she making. She’s trying to roll over and her hand coordination has got a lot better; she’s been sucking on her hand and fingers. She got a playmat from her Tia so hopefully we’ll hear more of this happy baby’s giggles.
Those are the two things that describe my first two months in my new role as mommy. I am learning so much about my little lady. I learned the hungry cry (which by the way shouldn’t really be happening because its more of a “I am starving” cry) from the overstimulated cry, or my not so favorite tummy ache cry. The first month was all about sleep. That was our priority around the Tirado house. Dave needed his sleep for work, Juliet was learning to sleep at night, and I was trying to get it anywhere I could. In the middle of this we moved to a new town and have been trying to get settled. There is a good amount to explore and lots of local establishments I am excited to start supporting.
