2 months

2 Months Big!! Can't believe it! You are growing growing growing everyday! You weighed in at 10lbs 12 oz! You are now officially out of newborn clothes and your new wardrobe is out of control cute...this is gonna be fun!

You completely warm our hearts with your sweet smiles and soft coos. We cant get enough!! You smile A LOT!! Especially on the changing table...its funny how fast you switch from fussy to fun after I change your diaper! You love to play and kick- which is great because I can put you in a bouncer and you actually like the toys, what a concept! You can push up high on your belly and topple over to your back and did it several times the other day! Watch out big girl! You can hold your head up really well and love to look around...you really think big brother is something else! Just wait and see! Although you still cringe a little when you hear his voice because you know whats coming. You relish the quiet times! You like to stand in our laps and show off your "walking".


You are a rockstar sleeper at night...well in my book because big brother did not raise the bar very high in this category. You go down between 8 and 9 and have been sleeping to 4 almost consistently. The other night you gave me to 5! We moved you to your room, in your big girl crib, about a week ago and I think that it has really helped you... I think we were waking you up and Mom was quick to grab you if you made a stir. Overall, we are all happy with this transition. I also contribute your great sleeping to The Miracle Blanket! Yes, it is a miracle. You have gotten used to being swaddled in and I think you like it now. You let me know when its time to go to bed. You really like to be swaddled for naps too and tend to switch like a light as soon as you're wrapped up. You will like sleeping on your tummy I know because you fell asleep at tummy time the other day- this mom was shocked! :)


You are a good eater and hardly ever spit up! At least not the drenching that Alex used to give me. You are up for about an hour (including eating) and then its nap time again.
You still go to town on your pacifier and I love it! except the million times I have to pop it in when it falls out (especially hard in the car- but I will take it compared to Alex's non-stop screaming any day!) Speaking of the car, you took your first trip this month...down to The Valley to see family and a day at South Padre Beach. You did soooo well! I was so proud of you! More on that at a future post. You have also found that your hand (first finger really) is a good substitute for the pacifier.
Nani calls you her strawberry because of your pale skin and light hair. Your eyebrows are almost non-existent. Your big blue eyes are just gorgeous and I adore your girlie lil lips! You are just more beautiful everyday and my heart just keeps growing!
Alex loves you too!!

That's so funny that your mil thinks Eliana looks like you because I think she looks like her! But whomever it is, she sure is precious!
