Our little Princess is two months old!
Eleanor reached my favorite developmental stage this month and has started social smiling and cooing. She is such a smiley baby but she reserves the best ones for me. She catches a glimpse of me and just grins from ear to ear! I love this stage where Mommy is everything. Never mind that it is because I am food. 😆
Poor baby had a terrible acne and cradle cap! She is our only summer baby so we never had to deal with warmer temperatures with the first two as newborns. The heat was just making Eleanor's baby acne worse by adding heat rash and making them extremely red. And her cradle cap was so awful that she had them on her eyebrows as well (eep!). But as you can see on the photos, her skin had cleared up very well. And if you're wondering, olive oil and soft baby toothbrush worked wonders on getting rid of cradle cap.
Eleanor has established a pretty regular nighttime routine. She usually cluster feeds in the early evenings with the last one around 9pm before her first long stretch of sleep. After that, she is up around midnight, 3am and 6am to eat. She is a fast eater so we are usually back asleep within 30 minutes.
