The last two months have been the very happiest of my life. You are such a joy to us and we love every.single.thing about you. There are times when I look at you and I love you so much that I feel like my heart might just burst. I ask myself everyday how I got so lucky to be your Mommy! I sure am blessed. You are growing like a weed but it has been so much fun to see you change and grow. Sometimes when I get you up in the morning I feel as if you grew overnight. I love you and I love your sweet baby smiles. Thank you for making our lives complete!

You had your two month doctor’s appointment today and the doctor said you are doing great! You have reached many of the developmental milestones that are normal for a 3-4 month old. I told your doctor that you were our little genius! You also had 3 shots today. You were such a brave girl! You turned beet red and screamed until Daddy rubbed your legs and I gave you a bottle. You stopped crying within 10 seconds and you were smiling a minute later. I think Mommy cried more tears than you did.
You are starting to love bath time (once Mommy found out that she’s supposed to water in the tub). You just lay there so relaxed and you usually get drowsy. You cry when I take you out! We give you a bath before bedtime and it is one of my favorite times with you.
You have started to smile and coo in response to others. It is just the sweetest thing in the world and it melts my heart- especially when you open your mouth and give us a big gummy smile. Sometimes it looks like you are laughing, but no sounds come out yet. You really love to hear that you are pretty and will usually give a big grin when someone compliments you. You also know the sound of my voice and you will turn your head to find me when you hear me. I LOVE it!
You started sleeping through the night right before you turned 6 weeks old. One night I put you to bed at 10:30 and you didn’t wake up until 5:30. It was a shock to Mommy because I didn’t do anything different that day. I thought it was just a fluke but you have continued to sleep at least 8 hours every night. You usually wake up between 5:30-6:00 to eat and then you go back to sleep until around 9:00.
Your Aunt Michelle and cousins got you the Soothing Seahorse and you love it so much. Sometimes I can lay it next to you in your Pack ‘N Play and you will stare at it until you fall asleep.
You are still eating very well. We occasionally give you a bottle of pumped milk but we try not to do it very often because it seems to make you spit up. You usually gulp it down so I think that’s why! When you do get a bottle it’s usually about 3 ounces.
You are starting to like tummy time more but it can be hard to do it very long because you usually roll over right after I put you on your tummy. A few days ago you fell asleep right in the middle of tummy time. It was precious!
You celebrated your first Fourth of July and you wore a cute little bathing suit. You didn’t get to swim just yet, but you sure looked stylish.
Your book this month is Someday by Alison McGhee. It’s all about the wonderful things you will do someday. Just promise Mommy you won’t try to grow up too fast and do all of those things before I’m ready!
You are absolutely beautiful and I tell you how much I love you about a thousand times a day. Thank you for being the very best little girl that Mommy and Daddy could ask for! Happy 2 Month Birthday sweet girl!
