2 Months

I can't believe that my little princess is already 2 months old.  Where has time gone, because I could swear we just left the hospital with our little angel!  

Sabrina continues to be a great baby!  She is super content minus maybe one hour a night where she is fussy and ready for bed.  This month she has gotten much more content with being put down for awhile, so I haven't had to wear her quite as much as I did at the beginning.  She has discovered that a vibrating chair feels pretty darn nice so she uses that quite a bit to nap in during the day!

I love this phase of babyhood that we are entering.  She is still teeny tiny and cuddly but is also becoming much more alert and I can't even walk by her without getting a big smile which of course makes me stop what I was doing and go play with her for awhile.  She has this cute baby thing down :)

She has slept great since the beginning but this month she moved up her bedtime so she goes to bed right after the boys - somewhere between 8-9 at night.  She wakes up anywhere between 3:30-7 in the morning to eat and then is back to sleep for another 4 hours or so.  I obviously prefer the nights that she sleeps until after 6 but I won't complain since she is sleeping 7-10 hours straight!  She eats pretty quick and then curls up next to me for a little bit more rest - one of my favorite times of the day is early morning snuggle time!

Of course we are getting to see more of her personality.  She has the sweetest little smile and is so close to giggling!  She does NOT like tummy time at all and in those moments where she is not happy - tummy time, getting dressed after a bath, or if she has to wait a few minutes for food - she has quite the set of lungs on her!  But for the most part she is either sleeping or super happy and smiley.  Her smile definitely melts me into a million little pieces!

She is now 10 lbs 6 ounces (25-50%) and 23" (50-75%) right about the same percentiles she had at birth so she remains perfect in every way ;)  She's entirely in 0-3 month clothes now but is starting to outgrow some of the dresses and jammies as they are too short for how long she is!

We're still working on a daytime schedule.  She is still sleeping quite a bit so we just kind of go with what she needs.  She usually sleeps most of the morning, with the exception of 30 minutes or so after she wakes up to eat for the second time and  then is awake from 2-8 with a little bit of dozing here or there.  She wakes up to eat every 3-5 hours during the day.  She is doing great with nursing and this remains quite a different newborn experience than we had with little Mr. Eli.

On the note of Eli, amazingly Sabrina is our smallest baby at the 2 month mark.  Elias was 2 pounds smaller than her at birth, but by the time he was 2 months old he had gained a whopping 5 lbs, so he was a little bit  bigger than she is now.  And Malachi, well Malachi was gigantic at 2 months old.

She is a pure delight in our lives and I still sometimes cannot believe that I have a daughter after two rowdy boys!
