2 Months Old!

Happy 2 months to my little Ansley Sue! She has changed so much this month! She is still a little particular about things, but she has mellowed out a lot!

Ansley- You have really grown! We go to the doctor tomorrow and I can't wait to see what you weigh and how long you are now! You smile a lot now and have giggled a few times! You enjoy sitting in your bouncy seat, and watched a Baby Einstein video for the first time and loved it! (don't criticize me- I was trying to distract her with TV so she would take a bottle- :) no success) You are awake more and have a somewhat regular routine now! You pretty much sleep, eat, play. You finally have began enjoying your bath and have even seemed to look at yourself in the mirror. You will lay on your play mat and kick and coo and just look around!

You still eat every 2 hours, and sometimes still do at night! You have began taking a long nap from around 7:15 p.m. to 10:30 or 11:00, eat, go back to sleep, eat between 1 and 2, sleep, eat between 3-4 and then sometimes you will sleep until after 7am. So your longest times are at the beginning and end of each night! You sleep in the pack and play until the wee hours and then I get lazy and just keep you in bed with us! I think daddy's alarm has started waking you up! During the day, you usually have 2 30-45 minute naps and then you will take a 1-2 hour nap after lunch and another in the later afternoon.

You still sleep better when you are swaddled, and swaddling also seems to comfort and calm you when you are just cranky and fighting sleep! I have tried to wean you a little from swaddling, but will continue it at night!

Today you had your first conversation! You took a few turns vocalizing/cooing with me! This was pretty exciting to your speech therapist mommy! We fall in love with you more each day!
