Juno is 2 months old!!

Juno turned two months old on Monday, but with Jason being home from work for MLK Day, I didn't get around to taking her two month picture until today. Here she is, the apple of my eye!
Juno's second month was quite a bit harder than her first. Part of it was that she got her Pavlik harness and she had to adjust to eating, sleeping, and playing in it. She was also diagnosed with reflux this month. Her pediatrician put her on some medication for it, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to be helping much. She is still uncomfortable a lot of the time.
In two months, Juno has gained 3 1/2 pounds. She's up to 9 lb, 7.7 oz. Wahoo! She sleeps pretty well at night--usually at least one 5-6 hour stretch and 4-hour stretches the rest of the night. I put her to bed at 7, wake her up to nurse at 10 before I go to bed, and then usually only have to get up with her once before morning. Pretty good for a 2 month old! We are still working on naps during the day. I bought a box fan that I turn on the highest setting during her naps and the white noise seems to help, but she's still a bit of a catnapper.
Juno is getting stronger every day and likes sitting in her Bumbo seat while I make lunch for her big sisters. She's not strong enough to sit in it for long, but she always wants to be upright. She likes being a part of things! Like all babies, she has fussy periods, but she rarely cries inconsolably. She loves to be held and cuddled!
Tomorrow we are going to the ortho to see how much progress has been made in her hip. Cross your fingers for good news!
