I can't believe it has been 2 months since this little girl came into our lives!
Amelia, you are the sweetest baby girl. Your Daddy and I love waking up to your sweet face every day!
Here's what you've been up to lately...
-You are now wearing size 1 diapers. Though they are a little big, you are definitely too big for the newborn size.
-You are wearing more 0-3 month clothes. It has been so much fun to dress you every day! You are too long for most of your newborn sleepers. I decided it was time to put them up when your toes started curling up in your footed pjs. (LOL) I think you're going to be a tall girl, like your Mommy!
-You've started cooing when we talk to you. The first time you did it, I burst into tears! It was such a surprise and so sweet. Your Daddy was right there when it happened - you would have thought we'd just won a million dollars, we were so excited and proud of you!!
-Doesn't take much to get a smile from you these days...we just say your name and you give us a big grin! Melts my heart every time.
- You still love having your hands in your face.
-You are now eating 6 oz at every feeding. You make the cutest sounds when you eat...like a little pig. We affectionately call you our little piglet.
-You usually go 5 hours between feedings at night, 4 hours during the day. Though I'm tired, I love getting up with you in the middle of the night. You are my little cuddle-bug. I'm sure the day will come when you will get tired of our thousands of kisses a day, but until then - those sweet cheeks are all ours! :)
-You are staying up a little more after your feedings during the day, but nap really well.
-You are incredibly patient on us to feed you. You will take your paci and sit in your bouncy seat and not make a peep.
-You don't care for baths. You don't cry, but you get so red in the face and I just know that you are going to lose it on me at any point. (LOL) Mommy is still sponge bathing you...I'm hoping that once we start putting you in your little bathtub, you will enjoy it more.
-You love the sound of running water...any noise really. I think being in the NICU helped you block out noise or find it soothing in some way. There were lots of crying babies and beeping noises around you while you were there. For example: we can vacuum right under your bassinet and you stay sound asleep or Mommy can dry her hair right beside you and you just keep on snoozing!
-You are mesmerized with the ceiling fan...it's not even on, but for some reason makes you smile so big!
-Though you are a little wobbly (we call you a little bobble head), you are holding your head up like a champ! Your neck is getting so strong.
Happy 2 months, baby girl! You've truly made this the happiest two months of our lives! We love you!!
