2 Months Old Today!
I always find it so hard to believe how fast a month goes by with babies. It always seems like you are saying they are one month and then you blink and they are yet another month older! So now our sweet Mary Etta is 2 months old......she is a sweet, sweet girl and we are so thankful for her as a part of our family. Though it is amazing to see how each one of my children have been so different. You think you have the baby thing down by #3, but yet she manages to surprise us in choosing to be different from her siblings. As still getting to sleep in our room....this is the first for us. Poor girl has no room, and I'm not sure I'm quite up for the training process of older brother and sister room sharing yet. But on a positive note, she did sleep through the night faster than the other....around 6-7 weeks she was sleeping 7-8 hour stretches (they two were closer to 3 months). But she is a little harder to get settled than they were at times, and seems to prefer the swaddling longer than then other two as well......I am one of those mom's who secretly puts her babies on their bellies to sleep. I know, I know it's such a no, no....but they just slept so much better!) But not Mary Etta....she really doesn't seem to want to sleep on her belly---she likes it briefly, but apparently not for sleeping. But even though she is her own little person and we still have to figure her out like we did the others, we still love her more and more everyday! We are thankful that the Lord has blessed us with this sweet little person, and pray He will continue to enable us to raise her in the way she should go!
