2 Months Old

Bridgette turned 2 months old on St. Patty's Day. We were in San Antonio visiting my parents. This was her first big road trip and she did really well. She did great in the car except for 45 minutes on the way there due to construction. We had a really good time visiting my parents and we went to the river walk and the Alamo on St. Patty's Day.

Bridgette weighed 9 lbs 13 oz and was 23 inches long at her 8 week checkup. She is definitely going to be tall and skinny like her Daddy! She got a bunch of shots and she only cried a little bit. She was one tough cookie! We are also stopped her reflux medicine to see if she really has reflux or if it is a food allergy. Lucky for me I still can't have dairy and as of last week can't have soy milk either, boo! She seems fine without the medicine and seems to have rough days when I eat foods that are not normally in my diet. I would say she for sure has a food allergy. Poor baby! I have been really careful to not have dairy or soy but it is really hard. I am hoping she will out grow her allergies.

She met her Auntie Laura and her cousin Vivian this month. She loves spending time with her cousins and wishes Vivian lived closer so they could have play dates.

She grew and changed a lot this month. Here are some of her milestones: drinks from a bottle, sleeps in her crib in her room, sleeps for 5-5 1/2 hours at night, enjoys her bath, makes eye contact, smiles occasionally, follows objects with her eyes, is holding her head up better, out grew her newborn clothes and diapers, enjoys her play mat, loves the swing, and enjoys sitting in her bouncy seat and watching tv. She is starting to look more and more like her mommy but has her daddy's long legs and dimples.
