Yesterday Ramona turned 2 months old. Bring out the birthday candles! We decided to do something special.....so we took her in to the doctors for her shots. She loved it. Ok, she screamed bloody murder, and turned bright red for a few seconds, but after that she seemed to do just fine. She is in the 90th percentile for weight, and the doctor said she was perfect. Of course she is perfect.
That night we had PEPS, and it was a whole lot of fun. We took some pictures of the babies hanging out together, and all the parents were wowed by Ramona's stillness (well, everybody has to have a skill). We're going on a walk around Green Lake together on Friday (at least the moms are), so I'm really looking forward to that. Having a baby has really helped me meet some cool people. Thanks for the social life Ramona!
We've recently started a "bedtime routine", which I thought was kind of a silly thing to do with a two month old, but it has been wonderful. We bring her up to bed around 8:30, change her diaper, feed her, read a short book (she just thinks we're talking to her, because she never notices the actual book), and then we sing her a song and put her to bed. We turn on the mobile, and leave the room......and she can all of a sudden put herself to sleep all by herself. It turns out she is a very independent little baby, and she spends some time talking to herself, and staring at the mobile, and eventually falls asleep. It really makes our nights easier. She has also started sleeping almost through the night, only waking up once to eat. Its happened twice......so we'll see if its a permanent thing.
