Okay, so here is another one of those bows, I SWORE I would never put on my child, yet look how absolutely scrumptious she looks! I LOVE it!
Our baby girl turned two months old today! I cannot believe how she has grown! She is still comfortably in 0-3 month clothes, but the newborn ones have been packed away and I will admit tears were shed as they were packed...and the tears did not belong to Hope or a male member of our household. She is still nursing great and is growing like crazy. She is spending more time awake and is so alert, but is a bit of a diva. She commands our attention at all times. She will not stand for multitasking when one of your tasks is to snuggle her.
She is smiling quite a bit but she sure makes us work for those smiles. She is doing great with the Prevacid. (the trick I found to work was just to put the half tab in a baby spoon and add a couple drops of water and just feed it to her that way) So thank you all for your suggestions. I am so grateful so many of you were willing to share your knowledge with us.
Praise God, Hope still has not had any blistering or any need for wrapping or bandaging. She does have a heat rash that seems to come and go, which the doctor said is typical for babies this time of year. She also does seem to scratch easily so we have to be sure to keep her nails trimmed and mittens on her in the car. She HATES the car, she screams in the car, she thrashes in the car. I think it may have to do with the fact that we drive a Scion XB and the three children are like little sardines across the backseat. It may seem cozy, but when Luke and Ben decide to UFC style fight while buckled in, it may make her a little uneasy. Maybe. But I suppose she will adjust to growing up with two crazy brothers!
She is basically happy when being held, especially when wrapped in her Miracle Blanket or in the Baby Bjorn. She is a joy to have and we are certainly blessed. We are so grateful for the children God has blessed us with. Please continue to pray for sweet Hope. The Lord is definitely working in her! To look at her you would NEVER know she has EB! We thank Him for an amazing two months and pray for many more to come!
