Amelia - 2 Months

Length: 24 inches
Weight: 11 lbs 13 ounces
Appearance: She's becoming quite the chunk. She eats ALL day and it's beginning to show. As much as I love the newborn stage I sure do love a chubby baby! Her eyes are still blue and her skin is pretty fair and rosy. She's losing some of her hair and fits in 3 month clothes. 
Firsts: First time sleeping past 6 hours. (knock on wood!) First complete poopy blowout. First battle wound from her sister. (Lucy dropped her baby on Amelia's forehead) First time smiling!
Personality: She is the most upset when she's hungry.. which is like every hour and a half. She loves when you stare and talk to her. I swear she calms down the most once Lucy is tucked into bed.. probably because there is finally a little peace and quiet ;-) She loves to be carried in the front carrier and hates to be put down. She loves a swaddle and a paci and is super smiley!
How Mama is Feeling: I have great days and I have super hard days.. depends on when you catch me. No matter how hard the day is I still miss both my girls when they go to sleep. As stressful as it can be, I'm still as thankful as ever. Amelia is already growing into such an adorable person and she's already so different than her sister. I feel extremely overwhelmed more often than not, but then the chaotic moments pass and everyone is fine. 
What I've learned as a mom: I've learned to allow myself to complain a little, and cry a little even. I've learned that most everything goes wrong at the exact same time.. especially with two under the age of two. I've learned just how much another human can need you.. (times 2) and although it's incredibly trying at times.. it's that much rewarding. I'm so so excited to see Amelia grow into her own person.
