My suspicions have been confirmed, the girlchild is enormous. At her 2 month appt today, she weighed in at 13lbs 13ozs and measured 24" long. That puts her off the charts in weight and in the 90-95th percentile in length. I was wondering how she had already managed to fill out 3-6 mo clothes a bit too well.
Did I also mention that my Gertie is a night owl? Oh yeah, there will be no sleeping before 11:30pm. Actually, last night it was 1:30am. This? Sucks. Now she sleep for a good five hour stretch, but when those are the only five hours of sleep you are getting--no so good. It would actually work out ok if she were my only child, as she does sleep in, quite late, like 11am. That honestly doesn't help much when the boys rise around 7am. Sigh, I already have a party girl on my hands.
Oh and yeah, see, she'll only nurse to sleep, and if you try to remove boob after she's asleep, she flips the hell out. I'm talking screechy, clawing, enraged child. This is how she has already managed to roll over back to belly because in her desperation to have to boob in her mouth again, she will frantically grab for my chest giving her enough momentum to end up face down. That doesn't please her too much either, matter of fact, it adds a whole new level of screechdom to the equation. Ah gertie, I guess it's only fair that as I want to just gobble you up during the day you want to reciprocate at night.
And before you say hey, why not give the child a pacifier? Let me tell you that the mere presentation of anything silicone near that child's mouth is an offense worthy of the seventh level of hell. She will gag, and choke, and spit up, and wail like you've just killed her dog. It's pitiful really. So, tomorrow night will be interesting when I leave her with my SIL to go to BWB's company party. I've pumped, I've stored, I have food that will no doubt still be in the fridge when I return to a very pissed off and hungry baby (and not much happier sil).
