2 months

I can hardly believe how much our little girl has changed in just a month. She's making eye contact so much better and there's lots of coos and goos exchanged throughout the day. She interacts with her toys now and pulls on them, moves them, talks to them. She REALLY likes a mermaid toy and even chose it after I held 4 different ones up for her...very drawn to that one.

She does that cute laugh where she's smiling then sucks in air from the room making a sort of hiccup sound. LOVE that!

She almost has a daily routine and is working hard to space her daytime feedings to 4 hours. It's tough and we usually don't make it the full 4 hours, but we try anyway! Best of all, she's consistent at sleeping at least 8 hours straight at night. At 2 months exactly, she slept 9 hours and the next night, 9:45. That made her mommy VERY happy.

She still has gorgeous blue eyes, but not nearly as much hair as she used to. All that routine-business is stressing her out!

Just when I thought being Claire's mommy couldn't get any better than it was at one month, she proved me wrong. The more I get to know her, the more I love her.

i remember my sister telling me that it's so hard when they move from stage to stage because you can't ever imagine that it could be any better...and then you love the next stage even more! i suppose this is true until they are about 13. ;)

she is darling, april. look at those eyes and toothless smile.

pay attention to those smiles. (darn teeth, they're a necessary evil. they continue to change the smile that you fall in love with over and over and over again.)

I love her little round face! :) My older son slept through the night starting at 3 weeks and when his dark hair fell out, it came back in blonde.
Enjoy her! :)
