So I Don't Forget

It makes me so sad to think that I've already begun to forget little things that Piper did when she was a newborn and that was only 7 months ago! This post is an effort to preserve some of those memories.

Newborn to 2 Months Old

  • 2 week Check up
    Weight: 7 lbs 13 oz % 32
    Height: 20" % 37
    Head Circum: 36 %50

  • Piper grunted all the time, particularly when she was sleeping. This resulted in her sleeping in our closet so I could get a little more sleep.
  • Piper tuted ALL the time! Somehow she always knew the exact moment to let it rip in order to bring the most humiliation to her mother. ie. While standing next to a stranger in the grocery store. Of course I'm forced to make a comment to my baby like "Wow baby girl!" So people know it was not me.

  • Had a little Jaundice
  • The colic began
  • Slept between 4 to 5 hours at night
  • Went 4 hours between feedings during the day
  • Went on her first trip to Lake Powell (5 weeks)
  • Smiled for the first time (5 Weeks)
  • Started to sleep a bit longer at night
  • Colic hit it's peak (7 weeks)
  • Laughed for the first time = HEAVEN!

2 Months Old

  • 2 month Check up
