2 Months Old

     On Friday Adilynne turned 2 months old.  The time is flying by!  Today I took her to her 2 month appointment.  She did really good, even with the shots.  This evening she had a small fever and I think she was kind of sore from all the shots so I gave her a little Tylenol and after a half hour or so and a full belly she was feeling much better.  She is 10 pounds 14.5 ounces and 23.5 inches long.  The doctor asked me if she was sleeping for at least 4-5 straight hours at night and was very surprised when I told him she sleeps for 11-12 hours each night.  He told me I was a very lucky parent for having such a young baby sleeping that long!
Getting so big!
 So strong
 She loves to sit up and be able to see what is going on.
 Oops!  This is how she looks most of the time in her carseat at church.  She wiggles so much that her bow falls down and covers her eyes. 
 Smiling before church.  She is starting to smile more and more and it is a lot easier to get her to smile at us now.  I love walking in her bedroom in the morning and seeing her smile big and play with me.
  We went to the park for a walk a few evenings ago and it was a little chilly so I put this jacket on her.  Gangster! She didn't like it too much but I thought it was pretty cute.

Growing Up

     My little girl is growing up so fast.  The past week and a half has been full of milestones for her.
  • Last Wednesday she held her head up nice and big for several seconds while she was doing tummy time. 
  • Last Friday night-Saturday morning, she slept through the night!  10:30 pm-6:00 am.  The past three nights she has slept until 7:00 or 7:30 am.  It is wonderful to get a full nights sleep!
  • Last Friday she also rolled over all by herself from her tummy to her back.  We couldn't believe she would be rolling over this early but she did it for us 3 times and continues to do it every once in a while for us now (mostly when she's mad).
  • On Mondy she gave us a great big smile.  She was laying in her crib after nap time and I went in to get her and she gave me a big grin.  It melted my heart and brought tears to my eyes.  I love seeing her big toothless grin.  
  • This is the best picture I have been able to get of her smiling so far.  She seems to be a little camera shy. 
  • Yesterday we used the last of her Newborn diapers.  It was kind of sad to throw the last one away and put on a size 1.  
  • The past few days she has become so alert.  As we walk around the room when she is laying on the floor she turns her head and watches us and turns her head to look for sounds.  She is getting so fun to watch and play with.  
     I'm so glad I get to stay home and see her learn all these new things.  Being a mom is the BEST!
