Emily - 2 Months

I cannot believe it but my sweet baby girl is 2 MONTHS OLD already!!!  She turned 2 months on Monday, January 3rd, 2011.  She is growing and developing so fast!

{Excuse the shotty Photoshop job.....I'm still learning!}

Here are some stats on little Miss Emily:

Height:  21 3/4"

Weight:  11 pounds, 6 ounces

Head Circumference:  37.3 cm

New Developments:  Emily, you are becoming more and more alert each day!!  Your daddy and I are so proud of you!  You have started focusing on objects really well.  You really love to focus on the spinning mobile above your swing.  You like to look in the mirror on your swing too.  You got a mobile for your crib for Christmas and you like to watch that as well because it spins, has lights, and brightly colored animals hanging from it.  Your favorite time of day is first thing in the morning.  Your smiling and cooing helps mommy roll out of bed and be excited about starting another day with you.  You smile when mommy and daddy talk to you and/or play with you.  You coo and talk back SO much!  You are going to be a talker as soon as you learn some words!  I love having little conversations with you.  It makes my heart smile so big.  You had some shots at the doctor this week.  It broke my heart to see you hurt like that.  I'm not sure who cried or you!?!  The good news is, you got over really quickly (as soon as I picked you up and held you).  You are getting much better at holding your head up.  You're not quite 100% at it yet, but you certainly are getting there.  You are still breastfeeding like a champ!  You have really gotten the whole "latching on" thing down pat.  You obviously are eating well because you're clocking in at 11 pounds and 6 ounces!  You are also a GREAT sleeper!  Mommy is so lucky to have a baby like you that likes to sleep at night.  You nap really well in the morning time (usually when mommy is running errands) and maybe once or twice for short periods of time in the afternoon.  You go down for bed somewhere between 9 and 10:00.  You still sleep in a little crib beside our bed.  You are really starting to sleep for longer periods of time at night.  The past 2 nights you only woke up twice in the night to eat.  You are sleeping for solid 4 - 5 hour periods of time.  Hooray!  I think that's about all for this month.  You are an amazing baby and mommy and daddy love you very, very, very much.  You have blessed our lives more than you'll ever know.  Keep growing, kiddo!
