2 months!!

Dancing with your daddy!!!


Our girl is 2 months old!!

Our perfect little lady. And her friend, Mr. Bear.

Love her.

They love to talk to each other.

Big girl!

I guess I was boring her... :)

2 month stats:
Weight: 8 pounds, 14 ounces (at her 1 month appointment - clearly bigger now!)
Height: 21 inches 7/8 inches
Eating: Exclusively breastfeeding every 2-3 hours during the day & every 4-6 hours at night.
Clothes: Some newborn, some 0-3 month, some 3 month. It seems 0-3 month fits best.
Diaper: Newborn and Size 1. The Size 1 are a bit big.

Dear Layla,

2 months have gone by in the blink of an eye!!

You are an incredible daughter and the perfect addition to our family. You are so much fun and changing everyday!! I think back to the past 2 months and I'm in awe at how much you have grown.

You are so very happy and content. You smile at anyone and you're just starting to laugh. You love when we stick our tongue out and make funny faces. You think it's SO funny when we make raspberry sounds. You don't cry very often and you're fussy only when tired, bored or hungry. You like it best in your pink chair or standing - your absolute favorite is to walk around outside! Once it cools down a bit, I'm sure we'll be taking a lot of walks in the neighborhood.

You still love the car - you hate when we're in traffic but as soon as we start moving again, you immediately calm down. We play music for you often - lately we've been listening to The Beatles. Of course you're a huge fan, like Mama and Dada.

The pacifier (soothie) is your favorite - but the past few days, your favorite past time is trying to suck your thumb. You've found it now 3 times and we're waiting for the day when you can find it right away. You are so smart and determined - I love watching you try and get it.

You stay awake longer and longer everyday, although some days it seems your taking 10 naps! You tend to take about 3-4 naps a day with your longest being in the afternoon. You're an AMAZING sleeper - getting better every night. Last night, you only woke up once at 3:00 AM to eat! This is so wonderful and we're so proud of you. You have slept in every chair in the house but the past 2 weeks, you've been sleeping in your pink chair (The Fisher Price Rock & Play Sleeper) - you sleep so soundly when it it. You have napped a few times in your crib and we're going to start having you sleep in there at night soon. You still like your Pack'N'Play but you're not very fond of the swing anymore. We no longer swaddle you and now you wear a long sleeve shirt and sleep sack to bed every night.

You don't hate the bath anymore - you don't cry but it doesn't seem you like it either.

You are so smart - you are just starting to grab at toys. You hate tummy time but you put up with it and you're doing wonderful! Your head control is so good!

We have so much fun going out to eat, going to the mall, visiting friends and more - you're always a sport and if your belly is full, you are happy as can be.

Your daddy is your best friend. You get so excited when he comes home from work. You love all of your cousins and family. On Monday, we're going to visit Florida for the first time and I know you are going to adore everyone there - they're all so excited to meet you!

Dearest Layla, you're so very special to me and your Dada. Keep on growing, keep on learning, keep on smiling. I am convinced I was born to be your mama - you're perfect in every way.

I love you to the moon!
Your Mama
