Selah-2 months old!

It is so amazing to me that miss Selah is already 2 months old! She is growing up so quickly and learning new things every day! She is still the happiest and most smiley baby. We love her so!

Weight: 9lbs 7oz. She is still pretty little for her age! We took her to the doctor for her 2 month checkup and found out that she is in the 7th percentile for height and weight. I'm still believing that in the next couple of months she will chunk up!

Height: 21 3/4 inches

Nicknames: Say Say, Little Missy, Missy, Sweet Pea, Sabbie, Sweet girl, Smile baby

Eating: She's eating every 2 hours or so. We tried so hard to get her on the 3 hour babywise schedule but it just wasn't working for us. I'm planning on writing a post about that soon!

Sleeping: Selah is a great sleeper! At least at night time. Now she is sleeping 9 hours at night! We're very blessed! During the day though, she only takes short naps here and there which makes it pretty hard for mama to get anything done!

Diapers: She is in size 1 diapers. We love the Target brand! 14.99 for a 120ct Target box vs. Huggies for 24.99-I choose Target! :) They work the best for us too!

Clothing: Selah is in size 0-3 months for most of her clothes. She does still wear some newborn pants though! Girlfriend does not have a booty yet! ;)
Social: Selah is so very alert and talkative already! She smiles and coos so much!
Likes: Going for walks in the stroller! She is so curious always looking around at everything! She also loves playing on her playmat and trying to grab the toys that hang from it!
Dislikes: When she has to wait to eat. As soon as the bottom lip comes out I know I need to feed her quick before she gets really upset! It makes me want to cry everytime she does it!

Mama: Loving my little girl! I'm feeling so much better these days now that Selah has figured out nursing! I'm also almost back to my pre pregnancy weight which makes me feel awesome! People were not lying about that nursing thing!

Daddy: Louis is such a good daddy! He loves Selah so much and it's so amazing to see their bond! I'm so blessed to have a hubby like him!

What we're looking forward to: My good friend, Ashlee is bringing her 4 month old, Jaxson over to our house for a playdate today! We are so excited! :)

I never knew.

I never knew...

that being a mommy would change my world.

I mean I guess I expected it, but I never knew how much! I realize now how self centered I used to be. Having a baby is oh so humbling because since I've been a mommy it hasn't once been about me. Selah's need and wants top all of mine at the moment and I'm totally okay with that.

I never knew...
that breastfeeding is HARD.

I had heard it can hurt a little at first so that's what I was expecting. No one ever told me how bad it would hurt! I thought it would be something so easy, so natural for both of us but it wasn't. For the first 5 weeks it was a fight and a struggle every single time she had a feeding. For the first few weeks I would cry at every feeding because of the pain. I definitely wasn't prepared for that.

I never knew...
That I wouldn't use any of the knowledge that I learned in my childbirth class.

When I was in labor with Selah everything that I was taught went out the window. Even the breathing techniques never got used! I was so sure I would at least remember those but in that moment my mind was just trying to focus on getting through the pain.

I never knew...

that just hearing her cry would make me cry.

I never knew...

That my heart could love so much.
