Tyson and Quinn's Corner


This is our life with our little man, born May 2009 and our sweet daughter, born May 2011.

23 July 2011

Quinn - 2 Months!

Age: 2 months

Weight: 10 lbs and a half ounce (25%) 

Height: 23 inches (75%)

Size: Can still wear some NB size clothes, but mostly moving into 0-3m stuff for length.  Finishing up our last box of Newborn diapers. 

Hair: Dark and cray-zay, as evidenced below. :) 

Teeth: None.

Sleeping:  I dare not to jinx it, but she's sleeping through the night!  We feed her for the last time between 10 and 11pm and she sleeps until 6 or 7am.  Woot.  Naps are getting a bit more consistent.  She naps anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours after she eats and plays for a bit.

Eating: As much as it saddens me, I'm currently weaning.  We found out last month after a lot of testing on our sweet baby that Quinn has a milk protein allergy.  Since over half of babies with an allergy to milk protein also have an allergy to soy protein, I gave up all dairy and soy for 3 weeks. But, each time we gave her any substantial amount of breastmilk, her belly got distended with gas (again), her skin started to break out and she spit up a LOT.  I think she may have another allergy.  Boo.  She does so much better on the Alimentum so we're sticking with that until her GI doctor gives us the go-ahead to start challenging the allergies.  Our fingers are crossed that she grows out of it.

She's taking 4oz every 2.5-3 hours during the day, roughly 6 feedings per day.

Movement: She's holding her head up really well and will bear weight on her legs if you stand her upright.  Still wiggly, but no rolling yet.

Milestones:  Took her first trip to Bloomington, went to her first wedding, happily plays in her activity gym, started smiling (yay!) and started making some cooing sounds. 

Favorite toys/activities: Riding in the car or stroller, playing in her activity gym, being held, baths.

Dislikes: Burps, gas, being hot or cold, diaper changes, waiting for food.

Words: Just some adorable cooing sounds!
