Two Months!!

Our Dearest Stella,

You are becoming such a happy little princess. You love to smile and "coo" at us, especially in the mornings. We love to lay in bed with you in the evenings and mornings and just talk. Your daddy gets so excited when he can sit and talk with you. You just need to let him hold you more, he really likes it. He loves to sit and hold you little hands, it's so sweet. I love how you look at Wyatt, you're already so in love with him. We love you baby girl. Happy 2 months!
What you did this month:
  • You are weighing about 10 pounds, according to my scale. We have an appointment next week so we'll know for sure then.
  • You are wearing size 0-3 & 3 month clothes. I've put you in a few 3/6M items but they're a little big.
  • You are wearing size 1 Pampers Swaddlers.
  • You nurse every 2-3 hours during the day and 5-6 hours at night.
  • You definitely like your naps, much more than Wyatt ever did.
  • You're still a pretty good sleeper. We've had a little bit of a set back with bedtime this week. You've been wanting to stay up until 11 or later, and mommy's ready for bed.
  • You still sleep in the Fisher Price Rock and Play Sleeper at night in our room.
  • You absolutely LOVE your swing, thank goodness!
  • You don't like to be swaddled, actually you hate it. You love to have your hands free.
  • You enjoy laying down and looking around when you've been fed and are happy, otherwise, you prefer to be held. 
  • You're becoming a much happier baby. For a while I was worried you were going to be cranky and serious all the time.
  • You are so smiley. You smile when I talk in a "peppy" voice to you, so sweet. 
  • You've started "cooing" a lot more. Your favorite words seem to be "brother" and "daddy".
  • You've started taking a pacifier, which is a lifesaver at night. You like the Avent kind.
  • You made your first trip to NWA this month.
  • You went to Wyatt's Thanksgiving Feast at school and a Christmas tree farm.
  • You're not as big a fan of my singing as Wyatt was/is.
  • You do really well in the Bjorn carrier. I use it when we go for walks.
  • Your pretty smitten with your brother. When he stands close enough to you, you just stare and watch him.
  • Oh, and when you cry, Wyatt pats you gently and looks at me whining. He also tries to put your paci in your mouth, but we're still working on that.
