Life in Durango & Isla’s Two Month Anniversary

August 5, 2014

Our first week in Durango was very go-go-go. We’ve gotten into more of a routine by the point, which helps this feel more like home. We’ve established local restaurant favorites – Himalayan Kitchen, Grassburger, Durango Coffee Company, and Cream Bean Berry – and had a schedule for exercise, feeding, sleeping, “working,” etc. Isla is growing by the second – I wish we knew her exact weight, because I feel like she’s doubled in size in the last 8 weeks. She celebrated her two month anniversary on Monday, August 4. I cannot believe it. She is super smiley, gurgles all day long, wants to be “standing” all the time, still spits up everywhere after eating (see bottom photo), does not enjoy tummy time except for the first 1-2 minutes, and is very used to having a camera in her face. Isla’s gassiness is much better now that I’ve cut out all dairy (i.e. become a vegan – ohmygosh I miss cheese!). Her (okay, my) favorite books are Snuggle Puppy and Oh Baby, Go Baby. She is finally getting used to taking a bottle, but I am not a huge fan of pumping! Isla went on her first hike and slept through the entire adventure (typical!). She loves, and I mean loves, sleeping in the BabyBjorn carrier. We are doing CIO (ah!) and had her fall asleep without a peep the last two nights (praying it stays that way!). We’re still learning lots and lots every day. We love her to pieces.

I put together two short videos: here and here

Lastly, the Trumpette giveaway winner is Caron B! Congratulations!

It’s hard to tell, but that onesie was covered in spit up minutes before these photos were taken

Finally taking a bottle – this is a huge accomplishment and relief to me after much resistance

Isla Week 2 and 3_4

After every feeding, Sasha tries to teach Isla to stand – he seems to think this is a requirement at 2 months… crazy man

If Sasha wakes up first, Isla will be wearing her UT onesie

      Thank you! YES – it is! Our pediatrician told us to do it at 6 weeks, but I held off two more. She cried for an hour the first night (as did I), then less and less over the last four nights. She cried for only 5 minutes last night. We tried it during naptime because she had just been falling asleep in the BabyBjorn and not by herself – same result. It is TOUGH at first though!!
