two months.

Dear Emma, 
Today you are two months old!
These have been the best and fastest two months of my life.

You continue to grow and change every day
and we love watching you take it all in.
You are very observant and it's so fun to see you discover new things.
This month you've learned that you have a tongue, 
and that your arms and legs work!

You love your activity mat and will sit there contently
watching the lights and listening to the music.
You really love lights and music, two of your favorite things.
You get excited and swing your arms and legs
and have just begun to realize you can hit those toys that hang down!

In the past couple weeks you've started to like your swing more.
You sit and stare at the little birds on the mobile
and will sometimes take naps in there,
really that is where you nap the best...the swing or in someone's arms.

You are 10 pounds, 7 ounces and 21 1/2 inches long.
You are in the 50th percentile for weight and 25th for height.
A little munchkin, for sure but growing right on track!
You are eating every 2 1/2 to 3 hours during the day 
and will go a little longer at night.

You wear size 1 diapers and 
now fit into all your 0-3 and 3 month clothes.
It's so fun to dress you up!

You have been fairly consistently giving us one 4-6 hour stretch of sleep at night.
You love the bath and it seems to relax you.
After your bath, I feed you and we put you to sleep around 9.
You will usually sleep until around 2 or 3
eat, and go back to sleep until 5 or 6.

You are a pretty happy baby
and are full of smiles, especially in the morning.
I can't get enough!
I'll dance and sing and you smile and make little noises at me.
You love your daddy too.
You recognize our faces and voices
 and I think you know we are all yours.

We love you so much, little one!
