Isla - Month 2

Isla was officially 2 months old on August 17th (4 weeks adjusted).  This has been another crazy month of adjusting to having 2 little ones!  Isla's due date officially arrived- which was just weird.  The last month had been a complete blur and i could no longer imagine having been pregnant those last 5 weeks- especially as giant as i was! 

Isla is a typical newborn: eat, sleep, poop, cry.  by this time, Ian was sleeping through the night, and Dave and I were feeling way less exhausted.  that is not the case with miss isla.  her night sleep varies- some mornings i feel rested, while others i feel like death.  i followed babywise with ian, and while i'm trying to follow it with isla (just being a lot less militant about it), it's a lot harder to do with 2 kids- plus a busy schedule (house hunting, etc).  we're hanging in there, hopefully she'll master sleeping through the night soon- maybe by the time her adjusted age is 6 weeks.  we'll see.

isla had her 2 month appointment last week and she is really growing like a weed- it's crazy to see how much "bigger" she is!  she tipped the scale at 7 lbs 10 oz and is 20" long.  both of these put her below the 5th percentile, of course, but she's really growing!!

she loves being held- sometimes i can't even get anything done.  ian is still doing really well with her- he's such a sweet big brother!  i feel like there isn't much to report that i didn't sum up in the first sentence of the 2nd paragraph.  that's about all she does!  she's absolutely adorable though, so i'll just post pictures instead!

 just hanging out!
