Newborn: Hadley cluster fed only at night, I felt like I could not keep up. She would eat, and then 10 minutes later wanted to eat all over again. I didnt feel like I was producing the milk she wanted/needed so we would supplement during this time because she was just wanting to eat way too much. She would wake up at night every 3-4 hours at night to eat. She liked being held be her mom. Mom and dad were very exhausted during this time.

2 Months: Has had some sleep regression. Wakes up around 4-5am to feed. Can jump and play and bounce toy, and can finally entertain herself in it. Smiles lots! recognizes figures in mirror.

She can count to 3, we are still working on getting to 10. She loves loves loves barney, and will watch Sofia the first but loves barney way more. Is in size 2T. Still hates getting diaper changed - time to potty train! She has and can crawl out of her crib, but doesn't (thankfully.)
