Kyra Is 2 Months Old Already!

I don't know how, but somehow 2 months have already gone by! Our little girl is growing up! I included 2 of Kyra's newborn photos (taken of her at around 5 weeks old), but I don't want to post too many before her birth announcements go out in the mail. These were taken by Rebecca Hayes, who also did a maternity photo shoot for us. Both sessions produced some great photos!

Kyra had her 2-month check up today, and she's doing beautifully! She now weighs 11 pounds 6.5 ounces and is 22.5 inches long (at birth, she was 7 pounds, 20.5 inches). You definitely feel her growth when you carry her! My arms and back have been getting a workout! I'm trying to adjust to the fact that I'll probably have some lower back pain for many years to come...but of course it's all worth it! Kyra got her first shot today, which she didn't like but she only cried for a minute. She got eye drops, which stung and also made her cry. But she calmed down quickly and was a good girl when she drank her other liquid vaccine.

Kyra set a brand new sleep record last night! Amazingly, she slept for 11.5 hours! She also went to bed a little early tonight (similar to last night), so we're hoping she sleeps off the effects of her vaccines and doesn't get a cold or fever. She loves getting a bath, and we're trying to work that into her bedtime routine. The doctor gave us the go-ahead to bathe her every night (previously, our doctor had recommended just a couple baths a week). We'll only use soap during some of those baths since it can dry out her skin. So we're hoping that Kyra will continue having a successful bedtime routine, allowing her to continue sleeping through the night!

We're so proud of our little Kiki Bear!
