Violet Catharina: 2 Months

Though time seems to be moving quicker than a blink of an eye, this mommy was on blogging maternity leave when Miss V turned 1 month and do not have a post to document those milestones. If I were a stellar blogger, I would have pre-written that post before updating the worldwide web about Violet's second month of existence. But, this is real life and that first month was harder than I could have ever imagined! With that, we will move on to month #2!

Weight: 11lbs 9 oz
Diaper Size: 1s
Clothing Size: 0-3 But, I have had to put away a few sleepers in this size range!
Eye Color: Dark Brown
Adventures this Month: Trip to DC for our baby shower! It was so nice for Violet to meet so many cousins and aunts.

Favorite Toy: Violet enjoys looking at herself in the mirror! As you can see, the apple does not fall far from the tree!
Violet & Prince Relationship: Prince is slowly coming around to the idea of having a sister. For the first few weeks, Prince was very timid around her. He is still cautious but is now somewhat interested in her existence. He visits her daily to complete his check-up - a head to toe Prince smell. Violet doesn't seem to mind. She too has noticed his presence and will watch him when he accompanies us in her play area.

Hair: Miss V was born with a head of hair. I too had hair when I was born, but my mother states that mine was even thicker. Our hair is also similar in that her back bottom area is straight and the top is curly. We too started daily hair bow training!

Teeth: What are those?!?
Eats:  Overall, it is safe to say this this girl likes to eat! Violet and I are doing really well with breastfeeding. She eats every 2-3 hours, sometimes more frequently.
Sleeping Habits: Violet goes down between 7:30-8:00pm and arises between 6:30-7:30pm. The first few hours of sleep, about 4, is a pretty sound sleep. After her late night feed, she is a little more restless. She typically arises every 2-3 hours after to eat and then we have to lull her back to sleep. She is still being swaddled at night and I swear by the Halo Sleepsack Swaddle.
Milestones: Lifts and controls head independently. She coos, babbles, and smiles. Violet has been smiling since the day she was born, but she recently began smiling even larger and almost doing a smiling and giggling combo - it is too cute. 

Looking forward to: Trip to Tampa for 3 weeks!
