My Two Month Old Cutie!

Natalie is two months old!
She no longer has a problem with not wanting to eat. At her two month check-up, she was twelve and a half pounds! She's got chubby little arms and legs now, and I'm so glad that she's doing so well on formula.
This little girl is SO smiley! She's the happiest baby, and I love it! All the time, all day long, she just wants people to look at her and talk to her so she can smile and talk back to them.
I adore her smiles!
Some other things I have learned about Natalie so far are:

*She's a night owl. . . just like her mommy! It's hard to get her to settle down to sleep until at least 10 pm, and sometimes much later.
*She has a pretty short attention span and doesn't like to stay in any one place for too long, just like her sister. She loves to be entertained and doesn't like to be left alone.
*She is a total social butterfly!
*We have to swaddle her and wrap her up tight to get her to fall asleep, just like we used to do with Kirsten. She's really wiggly and loves to try to get her arms out of the swaddle, so we usually have to wrap her up a couple of times before she finally settles down.
*She hardly ever spits up anymore! Much less than Kirsten did at this age!
*Her favorite person to smile at is. . . ANYONE who smiles at her!
*It's impossible to predict which nights she will sleep through the night, and which nights she won't. It's anybody's guess!
I love my happy little baby! She is just too cute for words!

  4. What a cutie! I love it how she's smiling in EVERY picture! :) That's good that you don't try to predict when she'll sleep thru the night, I still do that with Marianne sometimes (trying to stop) and it drives me crazy because it's impossible to figure out! I'm glad she's not too bad of a spitter-upper! They make you do enough laundry as it is. :)
