Eleanor: 2 Months

-she's starting to smile way more, and to coo. I cannot describe the cuteness of the noises that are coming out of this little baby.
-she sucks her thumb/whatever fingers she can get in her mouth to go to sleep. She'll take a binky at times, but its really the fingers that = sleep.
-she's slept through the night the last week or so, starting at 10:30pm - 6:30am and now its been till 8am. It's wonderful. Perhaps because of the thumb sucking?
-weight: 10 lbs. 7 oz. height: 22in. long - in the mid twenties percentile. So she is smaller than the normal baby, but the doctor didn't seem worried at all - which definitely put me at ease.
-wears size 1 diapers and 0-3 month clothes. This was a very exciting jump for me. 

I'm sure this is mostly normal, but I cannot get over reading other ladies' blogs about their babies! I love seeing what others' experiences are and how mine compare.
She's been liking to sit up lately. It's so wonderful- it makes her seem so big.
Eleanor had her first vaccination shots on July 21st. I was so impressed with the pediatrician- two ladies came in to give her the 3 shots, and they did it so quickly! Eleanor got over the shots pretty quick, but after she had come home and taken a nap, she did cry for a good half hour. Even the rest of the day she was a bit edgy. I gave her some infant Tylenol (grape flavored... yeesh), and after like 2 min, that stuff was done spit up, projectile style. But there she was, finally settled by being in the nude and with a binky. By the next day though, she seemed back to her sweet baby self. 


  1. My word, Binkies are large these days! But it will be easier to get rid of that Binkie later on than to stop thumb sucking. Your Dad was devoted to his Boppie (we called it), had a sucking Boppie and a feeling Boppie ( and knew the difference). Saw a lovely video of you talking to Eleanor - and she smiling (dimples and all) and trying to answer you... But where are the Dunn good looks? Ella just has the Mouritsen good looks. Love you all, great granny Phoebe.

  2. Ah, she is getting so big! She is adorable, it's so fun seeing her grow! Keep sharing!!
