2 Months Old

On Thursday Aug. 5th, Rowan turned 2 months. It's crazy and hard to believe that that much time has already went by. Unfortunately I have no knitting to share with you but I thought I'd at least post something.
Every time bring the camera out to catch a smile, we aren't so co-operative. Her crying seems a little less excessive these days, but she still cries ALOT. We've went through a few formula changes and she seems alot happier on Isomil a soy-based formula, just the original one without the Omegas because the higher iron was making her poops really hard. She had her 2 month check-up and got all of her needles on the 5th. She is doing great according to the doctor. Paisley also had a check-up and got her 4-6 year booster and she was a really good girl. Both of them are doing well on the growth chart, Paisley's above average and Rowan now weighs 9lbs 7oz and is in the 50th percentile. The doctor said that is excellent considering her lower birth weight. She eats like a tank though, so I'm not surprised. *LOL* I think things are coming along with Paisley as well. She truly does love her baby sister. On a whim Paisley went to my parent's house for a week while they were visiting us this weekend, so Rowan and I get a nice quite week. I miss Paisley like crazy even though I'm sure the break will be nice. This is the very first time she's been up to her grandparent's in Owen Sound all by herself. I guess she's a big girl now! :-) Maybe there is knitting in my future this week??

I think that's my favorite new song too. I can't believe she left me for a whole week. What about my phone messages? At least get that other sock done.
RoBo baby better start liking me soon. I got a new sweater pattern for her.

How sweet is that baby ~sigh~

I am glad you had some quiet time with Rowan and I am glad that big sister is coming around.

It will be nice too once Paisley is in school....you'll get that break with just the baby.

Two months already? I don't believe it. You must be fibbing.

Wanna hear something else shocking? Next week Ethan will be a year old. I know!! Impossible!

We've actually done a few formula changes around here too. Mack was getting not so nice tummy aches on Good Start (Nestle) and it was turning you know what green. Glad to hear you found some formula that works for her.
