Our Remie girl turned two months over the weekend, a whole nine weeks of life with her in it and we are just head over heels in love. It’s not the easiest keeping up with these monthly updates these days, but they are important to me and I want her to have them to look back on just like her big sisters, so here it is — an update on our two month Remie Rue!
This month has been crazy, we started off by putting Remerie on Zantac after lots of signs of reflux (spitting up, hiccups, arching her back, & just seeming uncomfortable at times). This seemed to help, mainly with her being content a lot more! I have friends with babies who had reflux and also read a lot about it, hers was definitely a really mild case and I know it could be a whole lot worse, but was happy to give her some comfort and also to get our breastfeeding back on track. Then she got sick and was diagnosed with RSV last week, so we have been battling that — both Waverly & Avalon had colds (tis’ the season!) the couple weeks before so she definitely got it from them, who definitely got it from school! We were told it could last up to three weeks so we are certainly hoping that is not the case, it’s so sad to watch your babies not feel well, especially when they are so little and cannot understand.
Even with all that, Remerie is SUCH a happy baby and mostly laid-back! She smiles all the time, even at the nurses who were swabbing her to test and clearing out her nose with a huge machine. Her big sisters definitely get the biggest smiles though, she loves to watch them and loves when they hold and talk to her. She is by far the happiest in the morning, and her favorite time of day is her bath which she LOVES!! This month she started sitting in the bumbo and also found her hands, she loves to suck on her fingers to soothe herself — it’s really precious and she is the first of all three of our girls to do this. Sleep is hit or miss, some nights she sleeps through the night and then others is up every few hours, and there really is no way to predict it. Avalon was a unicorn baby & was sleeping 8-10 hours at this point so I am trying my best not to compare it to that, and also soaking in the late night nursing sessions which really are the only quiet moments of our day. 😉
Two months in and we still really are not sure who she looks like! The big girls really resembled each other as babies but Remie does not really look like either of them, I will never get over her olive skin (SO different than mine!). Her hair is lightening up a bit and she most definitely has the bright blue eyes like Waverly, Avalon & my husband. She is just such a doll baby and we are in no rush at all, but I am so excited to see her grow!
We love to love you, Remerie Rue — there is not a day that goes by that I am not forever THANKFUL for you! XO
