Hannah is 2 months!

The last month has been a busy one, and I haven't blogged as much as I would have like because Hannah likes to be held ALL day.  I put her in her bassinet or vibrating chair so I can get something to eat or drink or go to the bathroom, but mostly I just hold her.  When Steve comes home he takes over except when she is eating, which is frequently in the evening.  Some of the things that have happened in the last month:

-We got rid of the apnea monitor last week.  Yay!

-Hannah started wearing cloth diapers, and I love it.  She also helped set a world record by participating in The Great Cloth Diaper Change yesterday.

-We took our first longer car trip to see Uncle John and Aunt Angela and cousin Sara.  It went pretty well, just a little screaming on the way back.  Hannah does not care for red lights.

-Hannah was examined by a pediatric cardiologist and was declared to have an "innocent heart murmur" - no big deal.  She was such a good girl during the appointment.  She had an EKG and an ultrasound done.  Holding still was the hardest part!

-Hannah met her mormor (my mom) and Aunt Caroline for the first time.  They came all the way from Sweden to see her!

-We ditched the nipple shield.

-She started wearing 0-3 month clothes and actually outgrew some of the newborn items.  I think she is just under 9 lbs.

-Last but not least, we found our nanny!  She seems truly wonderful and we think she will take excellent care of Hannah when I return to work in (gulp!) a month.


  1. Yay for no monitors!! Doesn't it make life so much easier!? I love that you participated in the great cloth diaper change, I haven't switched M over yet. It's on the agenda.

    It was such a challenge to find Roscoe's nanny, but she stayed with us for almost 2 years and we LOVE her (and miss her). It's amazing what good childcare can do for your a woman's ability to go back to work. Where did you find your nanny?
