Baby Violet is 2 months old! She joined us in January as a tiny little girl, weighing 5 pounds 12 ounces. Well, in just 2 months she has gained 5 pounds and is busy winning the hearts of all with her pudgy little cheeks and her totally kissable mouth and well…everything. After 2 months she is still a mama’s girl. She smiles for me, she gives me her special looks and I could swear some days we both roll our eyes at the rest of our house. They are just so….loud! I will say she thinks they are funny sometimes though, and I think she tries to lick Miles when he comes around – probably because he is always covered with whatever he last ate!
Violet is my most quiet baby so far. The only issue is she is only quiet for me. So far she calms down as soon as I pick her up. This neat little trick does not work for those without my boobs. We are still working on the bottle thing. I think she might be like my others and make babysitters run for their lives.
We nurse about every 90 minutes to 2 hours all day and then take a little break for mommy to have dinner. Then we nurse after dinner and take a break to read books and sing songs and take baths as a family. Violet gets hugs and kisses goodnight from Sophia and Miles at 8 p.m. and then east and takes a nap until around midnight. She eats again and then sleeps for 5-6 hours. Then we start over. It’s a lot, and the constant nursing has made it tough for me to juggle everything else, but I love every minute of this baby girl. Ross says she is my last baby (this makes me SO sad) so I am trying to not miss a moment!
Violet – Mommy Loves You!
