2 Months

Today Rylie is 2 months old! I can’t believe it! It’s funny, every single parent tells me that “it goes so fast” and they are right! It seems like just yesterday we were still in the hospital!

Here are some highlights from Rylie’s second month:

  • Willingly took first bottle of breast milk from Dad
  • Went for first walk (in stroller) and have been on many walks since.
  • Attended an infant massage class (cried most of the time). Now starting to enjoy massages every other night.
  • Travels great in the car and had first successful hotel stay.
  • Started smiling huge smiles! She seems to enjoy people.
  • Started sleeping through the night, from about 10-11 p.m. until 5-6 a.m.
  • Started “talking”. She has such a sweet sound. 🙂
  • Starting to discover her hands. They spend a lot of time in her mouth.
  • Starting to enjoy baths, thanks to the bath pad from Grandma!
  • Rolled from front to back while playing under activity gym.

Rylie’s 2 month checkup is tomorrow. I’ll be sure to update with her height and weight stats! We are lucky to have one of my college roommates from Concordia as Rylie’s pediatrician. 🙂


Weight: 11 lbs 4.2 oz (62%)
Height: 22 3/4 in (66%)

For comparison, these are her stats from her 2 week appointment:

Weight: 8 lbs 6.3 oz (53%)
Height: 19 1/2 in (20%)

And at birth:

Weight: 6 lbs 11 oz
Height: 19 in

Each month on the 10th I am taking pictures of Rylie in a onesie with a Picky Sticky sticker. It will be fun to look back at them and see how she grows!

    She is so sweet and fun to be with. Hope she has a good day today, in spite of the shots at the Dr.’s office! Tell Bekah to be gentle!

    Happy 2 months Rylie!!

    Sounds like she’s growing and developing like crazy! I agree, I didn’t really “get” how fast time would fly until I experienced it. Trust me when I say it goes faster and faster, ack!
