Londyn girl started smiling this month! She has a way of making us smile every time she does it!
Her favorite toy this month is a stuffed turtle squeaky toy with a mirror on his belly!
Londyn still isn't napping well unless we are in the car. Her carseat works like a charm!
She spent most of month two nursing. She is still eating every two hours and taking nearly an hour to eat. Nursing has been the most challenging part of motherhood for me, but with the encouragement of Daniel, my mama, a cousin who is currently nursing as well and a sweet friend at church I've managed to keep going! I cherish our nursing sessions but have dealt with a lot of worry and anxiety over whether or not she's getting enough milk. I don't get much when pumping, but our wonderful pediatrician assured me that if her diaper count is good and she's gaining weight than I have plenty of milk for her.
Speaking of our pediatrician, Londyn Grace went to Dr. Schlacter at six weeks old. We initially used a different pediatrician for her one week appointment, but were not impressed. We scheduled her one month visit with him and then it was delayed due to Hurricane Sandy. Once the electricity was restored and everything was back up and running, we were able to go in for a check up! He is an old school doctor and his encouraging laid back personality was exactly what this stressed Mama needed! We are grateful for his thorough examination and for his prognosis of a healthy, growing girl!
During month two, we took Londyn Grace to celebrate her first Thanksgiving in Maryland and Pennsylvania with our precious families! We were definitely thanking the Lord for our baby girl and looking forward to all she would experience and accomplish in December!
