2 months

Eva turned 2 months old this last week. I love this girl so much. I hope this doesn't sound wrong, but I don't remember having this much of a connection with Soren at this point. Maybe it's because she's a girl. Maybe it's because I am appreciating these days and not wishing them away (i.e. I can't wait for her to crawl, I can't wait for her to talk, etc..) Or maybe it's because she's given us a couple of scares with her health. (more on that in a bit). I'm sure it's a combination of all those things.
There isn't a whole lot to report on that she does during the day. She pretty much still eats, sleeps and poops. She is really smily and when she is awake she is starting to really babble and coo. She loves to talk back and forth and it's cute to watch her and Søren have "conversations."
She continues to keep us on our toes. Will she do this till she's 18?! I told my mom the other day that I feel like we are two puzzle pieces that go together. I just know her favorite position to be held and can get her to sleep in a heartbeat. Not anymore. She decided to change things up and wants to be held in other ways. Not only that, she has gone on a nursing strike. I hope this doesn't last long. Pumping and washing bottles is getting old.
More on her health...First there was the trip to the ER when she was 4 days old. And now, we had a couple of times that we found her gasping for air and turning purple. Thankfully we were around her all of these times, Thank you Lord for that! (I really don't know what would have happened if she would have been in another room by herself). After an extensive doctors visit we came to the conclusion that it was probably acid reflux. She was promptly put on medication. Let me tell you, Eva is a different girl on this medicine. She is not as fussy, spits up way less, doesn't sound like an old sick man snoring when she is laying down and she has not had any more episodes of choking or stopping breathing. I'm trying to not live in fear (running to check on her every 3 minutes), but rather trust the Lord's protection over her like I do for the rest of my family.

Here are her stats for those interested...grandma! ;)

Head: 40cm (75-85%)

Height: 22 3/4 in (75%)

Weight: 10lbs 15oz (50%)

I hear ya on the acid will become an expert soon. Kimber has a great crib incliner for her to sleep upright. Also, mine all slept in their carseats until 6 months. You do what you gotta do when your kid has reflux.

What a beauty she is! I'm so glad that she is doing well and that the acid reflux medicine is working. Enjoy every minute! I love the cooing!
