Missy at 2 Months
Weighs almost 9 lbs (4 kg). Yeah, she’s a peanut.
Is cloth diapered. We cheat and use a fabulous diaper service along with Thirsties diaper wraps. It is as easy as using disposables, esp. since I don’t launder the diapers in our home.
Still loves her Baby Art Cards. These things are like baby pot for Missy. She just stares at them forever with an intent, faraway stoner look. Maybe she’ll be an artist?
Has her first eating disorder. She likes to throw up after eating. My friend says you either get a poop baby or a spit up baby. I must have the latter because Missy just recently went one full week without pooping.
Favorite accessory: a bib
Ms. Planner at 2 Months
Has nursed in the backseat of the car several times. Good thing public nudity is legal in Oregon.
Once went to a client meeting and realized she forgot to put nursing shields in her bra. A big no-no because I leak like a freaking sieve. So I stuffed each side of my bra with plastic bags from Gus’ poopy bag stash I keep in the car. Not one of my prouder moments but my shirt stayed dry.
Unknowingly went to another client meeting with a large spit up stain on her jacket.
Has 8 lbs to go before reaching her pre-Missy weight.
Is not eating dairy because it jams up her daughter (literally). Hello, my old friend, coconut milk ice cream.
Favorite accessory: a burp cloth.

I apologize for not being up-to-date on blogging, reading and commenting. I am working for a client part-time plus hanging with an 8 week old. It is crazy. I have so much admiration for those moms who work full time with babies. Seriously. I don't know how you do it.
