Kenley: Month 1 & Month 2

Once again I am painfully behind, but on Tuesday my precious Kenley turned TWO MONTHS old!

How is this possible?

Since I totally missed the mark on her one month birthday, I'm going to play a little catch up!

at 19 days old (closest to 1 month that she was weighed) she was in at 7 lbs 13 oz
21.5 inches
She will sleep for about 4.5-5.5 hours after she goes down and then will wake up every 3 hours after that. 
Daily Routine: 
As of now, we have no routine, little miss pretty much dictates how the day goes. Once I go back to work, we will have a more set schedule and I'm assuming that will help get all of us into a daily routine.
I am breastfeeding every 2-3 hours (feeding on demand still) and then I pump when I can and we'll give Kenley 1-2 bottles per day to give my poor little nips a break. 
Diaper Size: 
Pampers Newborn
Clothes Size: 
Hair Color: 
We have a little brunette, but I'm noticing those locks getting lighter. 
Eye Color: 
A dark grayish blue. 
First bath, first doctor's appointment, lost her chord, first Thanksgiving, first smiles!

10.5 pounds!
22.5 inches
Little lady is officially sleeping through the night and has been since around 6 weeks old! 
Daily Routine: 
The routine is still a little loosey goosey depending on the day and Kenley's mood but right now she's getting up around 6am to eat, she takes a little nap after that until around 9 or 10, then is up and happy until about 12pm when she takes her big nap which usually lasts a few hours. In the evening she alternates between eating, snoozing and playing. Then it's bath, eat, bed starting around 9-9:30pm and she's usually out for the night between 10-10:30pm. 
Right now she's nursing for about 20-30 minutes in the morning and then goes through 2-3, 5oz bottles while chillin' with her grandparents during the day, then cluster feeds in the evening until bed.
Diaper Size: 
Still in newborn, but I think our skinny-mini might be moving up to 1's soon because she's so long.
Clothes Size: 
Still squeezing in to some of her newborn outfits but is primarily wearing 0-3 months. 
Hair Color: 
It's getting lighter! It's a sandy blonde color right now, but it darker in the back.
Eye Color: 
Still blue-grey but they are getting darker
More and more smiles, starting to laugh, loves to grab mom's hair, grew out of the newborn sling in the tub and had first nap in her big girl crib!

It is so crazy to see how much she has grown in just 2 months. It actually hurts my heart a little. I wish I could freeze time and keep her this size forever. 

Kenley, my angel, you are an absolute joy. You are such a good baby and everyone that meets you {even random waitresses when we're out to eat} says so. Your daddy and I are absolutely loving watching your little personality develop and we are certain you are going to be one loud and outspoken little lady. You answered your mamas prayers and started sleeping through the night nice and young which both me and dad really appreciate, though you take after us and are quite the night owl. You make the craziest sounds...constantly...which is how you got your nicknames Squeak City, Squeakers and sometimes we refer to you as Lil Jon (she totally makes the "ugggggh" sound he makes). You are really starting to love "Activity Time" you look at the lights and screech so loud we sometimes think you're crying.

I love you more and more every day my baby girl and even though I want to freeze time and keep you as my tiny little tortuga forever, I am so excited to watch you grow and see all the fun new things you will start to do in these next couple of months.

Love, Mama
