Florence’s Two Month Baby Update

Florence’s Two Month Baby Update

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last baby update and as the weeks are going by so so quickly these days, I’ve decided to move to monthly updates rather than weekly with other posts about our days out and such as we go along. So Florence, you are two months old. It’s been two whole months since you entered our world in all your radiance and filled it with colour. These last two weeks you seem to have grown at record speed and each time I look at you I find myself noticing you’ve learned yet another new expression or skill.

You absolutely love to chat, taking after your Mama for sure. You goo and gah and woo non stop to anyone who will listen & talk back. Sometimes, if you don’t think we’re paying you enough attention you even shout which is very funny. IMG_1865

We’ve swapped the carry cot on your Pram with the pushchair setting and you absolutely love it – even more so than you did before. You are such a nosey little thing and don’t want to miss out on anything at all, so the fact that you can now see everything when we are out and about means you could happily be in there for hours. As well was going out for walks and popping to the shops, you like to sit in there while Mama is hanging out the washing in the garden or making lunch in the kitchen as you chat away. IMG_1808

You are showing a lot more interest in toys now, especially Octo (Lamaze Octivity Time) and your musical owl which we’ve now hung from one of the loops on your play mat. You have certainly found your hands and grip onto anything within reach – my hair being a firm favourite! IMG_1867

Mama reads to you every day too and you are captivated by the colourful pictures that fill the pages. We’ve added to our nursery rhyme & lullaby catalogue thank goodness – I think even you were a bit sick of ‘five little speckled frogs’ over and over again. You quite like the ‘Grand Old Duke of York’, ‘Old MacDonald’ & ‘Do you know the Muffin Man’. IMG_1780

We’re going to start having your friends over once a week / fortnight for some baby play. It will be lovely to see you all grow together week by week and become the very best of friends. We’re also going to start some baby classes at our local children’s centre too.

Your love of music of all genres is still strong. Something about Daddy’s less than soothing (to Mummy anyway) music seems to send you off to sleep! As long as you don’t learn the lyrics, I’ll go with it! We have introduced you a little bit of Cbeebies time too, which while perhaps a little controversial with you being so young, buys us 15 minutes or so to make some lunch or tidy up while you’re happy. So far Teletubbies, 64 Zoo Lane & In the Night Garden are a popular choice.

You love to study faces and copy our expressions. You give us the biggest smiles, especially first thing in the morning and now that you can poke your tongue out you quite happily pop it in and out all day long. IMG_1872

You’ve been a little (VERY) grumpy over the last few days and I think it’s probably down to a mix of things. We have had quite an odd week so far and a busy weekend which has meant your normal routine has gone a bit out of the window. Added to the fact that you’re in the middle of a ‘leap’ means you’re throwing us some challenges for sure.  We can’t complain too much though, you’re so so good and chilled out most of the time that a few screaming fits are sort of due I guess.  You have however started to get yourself off to sleep on Mama’s bed or on your play mat every now and then, as long as we are close by. Our arms are still your preferred place to drift off in though, which is well and truly fine by me. You give the most wonderful cuddles! IMG_1608

August has all sorts of things in store for us, including the arrival of Aunty Libby’s new puppy which I have a feeling we will be looking after quite a lot, a trip to see the Hot Air Balloons in North Hampton and even more birthday parties. I find it hard to believe tah we are already into the month where you will become three months old, where on earth is the time going?!

As always little Florrie, we love you dearly.

  • Love the blog! Just FYI baby shouldn’t be in upright seat of pram at 2 months unless she can hold herself up? We’ve got to help each other out every now and then wouldn’t want anything bad happening to your baby so had to let you know! Take care xx

    • Hi Charlotte ☺️ lovely to hear from you. Florence has amazing head strength and has been able to hold it herself from about 6 weeks. She normally is in a slightly reclined position in the seat part anyway, we aren’t using the completely upright position just yet. ☺️

      • Quote from the Joolz Geo website upon description ”in the first six months the neck muscles of your child get stronger, around this age, or when they reach 9KG, you will see your child can sit up straight without any help” – it’s not just about neck strength, it’s about upper body and core strength in general. Just looking out for you and your baby Hun. xx
