Kennedy – 2 Months

January 17, 2014 — 3 Comments

How has it been two months already?  9 weeks and 2 days to be exact.  Time has flown by and Kennedy has already grown so much!

I’ve learned that everything that used to take me an hour to do now takes me 4 days.  I like to focus on one thing at a time and get it done…but now I’ve learned to be able to start something, drop it, and pick it up again later.  Unfortunately that leaves my house in a horrendous mess most of the time.  Oh well.

She is smiling a lot lately, especially after a good nap and mealtime.  I’m still breastfeeding, but unfortunately it isn’t a pleasant experience for me (yet?).  A couple of weeks ago Kennedy had to get an upper lip tie and a posterior tongue tie clipped.  I may write about all of this later, or I may not…it’s just too frustrating to put out there right now.  I still pray daily for answers as to why it’s so painful. Time will tell….or not.

This is what inevitably happens when I try to take pictures:

Abby has been wonderful with her.  I don’t have to worry one bit about her ever being aggressive in even the slightest of ways. She’s mostly just curious as to who this new miniature human is and why she makes so much noise.

We like to cuddle in our bed on cold winter mornings sometimes.

And she’s doing her darndest at tummy-time, although after a couple of minutes she’s no longer a fan.

The nursery is an absolute wreck.

I didn’t notice until Kennedy was born that the crib was underneath the air vent.  I moved it in front of the window today and I like the way it looks.  Now I just have to figure out where to put everything else and accessorize, accessorize, accessorize!

Have I ever mentioned that I HATE accessorizing?  Probably because I’m terrible at it.  I’m such a big picture person and when it comes to the little things, I just draw a complete blank.  Can anyone else relate to that?

My little girl is calling (yelling/crying) my name so it’s time to go.

Hopefully I will have a nursery reveal sometime in the near future!

  1. Kennedy is so precious! Such a pretty baby!

  2. Oh, I know how big of a change it can be to bring a new baby into the family. I’m expecting our second soon and am a little trepidatious.
    I hope you have support on the breastfeeding front. It can be really hard without a caring, empathetic mentor who knows the science involved. Going to LLL meetings can help, as can reading kellymom. Depending on who it is, your midwife/OB or gyn (I go to a Women’s Health NP who is also a Certified Nurse Midwife, and it is the best!) can give a lot of good advice, too.
    I’ll be thinking encouraging thoughts for you.

    • Thank you so much. I’ve called and spoken with a volunteer from the LLL, but I think I’ll check out a meeting now. There happens to be one on Tuesday so maybe THIS will finally be the help I need. Who knows, but I really appreciate the encouragement!
