Two Months

Completely unbelievable that she is already two months old.
I hate to get all cliche but it seriously goes faster every time!
You're killn' me smalls!

This little girl is a gem.
She is a sweetheart.
She has every member of this family wrapped around her little fingers.  Which happens to fill both of her hands completely.  That's a lot of people.

She is well beyond where she "should" be, which after waiting a little longer than normal for Sam to hit developmental milestones is so different!
At 3 1/2 weeks we got her first smile.
At 5 weeks she started cooing at us, and within a few days she started carrying on a conversation with us.  Obviously not in words, but you know, that whole coo back and forth thing.  It's fabulous.
She also seemed pretty strong so we thought we'd try out the Bumbo seat at 5 weeks.  Yep.  Sat there.  Just hanging out soaking it all in.
And about a week after that she decided that she liked to stand up when you hold her.
Seriously baby?  At six weeks you are supposed to be all tiny and snuggly still, just a half step up from newborn!  Slow down!
Good news is that the two times she rolled over I think were a fluke, she hasn't done it since then.  But don't let that fool you, we can't leave her on the bed because she digs her heels down and scoots backward.
And to top it all off, we started getting little giggles last week.  Be still my heart!

At her two month check up our dr interacted with her for a while and was shocked at how social, reactive and talkative she is, asked about how she was doing and what she was doing...he was floored.  Looks like we may have another little overachiever on our hands!
She is up to 10lb 13oz at 9weeks old.  A steady gain of 1/2 pound per week from the time she was born.  Growing nicely!

I have been so good about taking a picture of her every single day.
I have not been so good about sharing any of them.

So let's catch up on the past two months shall we?

This picture cracks me up

Loving this little girl beyond words!  She is so fun and so full of spunk already.
And those squishably ginormous cheeks just keep on getting bigger.
