2 Months Old

Oh Smiley Girl,

You are 2 months old...and growing like crazy! At your 2 month check up today you weighed in at 11 pounds 3 ounces the 59th percentile and you are 22 1/4 inches long the 45th percentile. I can't believe how big you have gotten. I suspected you were going through a growth spurt last week when you wanted to eat almost every hour and then slept through the night from 11pm-8am. Although, you haven't slept through the night since then you still are a great sleeper...usually giving me a solid 5 hour stretch most days. Thank you for not making mommy feel completely sleep deprived. At your appointment today Dr. Saade did say that at 2 months you are no longer considered a newborn and now are into the infant stage. Oh, how that made me so sad. But you are still only 2 months old so not much will be changing with us. You will still be coming with mommy just about everywhere I go...but it is still a little sad to hear that you are no longer a newborn.

You are truly our smiley little girl. You started smiling a few weeks ago, but now you almost always smile when we talk to you. You are definitely Pawpaw's girl & smile at him every time he talks to you & get the biggest grins when he is holding you. But you don't leave any of us out and I know made Daddy's day when you smiled at him when he was telling you bye on his way out the door to work. Jake loves to get you to smile at him & still loves to be right in your face all day long.

You are staying awake a lot longer during the day now and are so alert and attentive to everything going on around you. You have really started to pay attention to the toys that dangle from your bouncy seat or the floor mat. You do swat at the toys, but not sure if you do it knowingly or just because you love to move your hands around and end up hitting the toys.

You are trying so hard to become a thumb/finger sucker. Because Daddy & I sucked our thumbs for so long and pacifiers are much easier to get rid of we are really trying to give you a paci. You happily take the pacifier when we give it to you, but if you don't have it you start looking for your thumb. You still keep your hands in a fist & usually can't get your thumb from under your index finger you settle for your fingers. But I can tell that as soon as you figure out how to get your thumb out you just might be a thumb sucker.

This month you also started cooing a lot. It is so sweet to hear the little sounds you are making.

Our little Lily girl you definitely brighten our days & make us all a little more smiley.
