Two Months Old

I'm a few days late on this one, but finally have some time at the computer to write it up!

At two months old, baby:

  • Holds her head up (unless she's tired--then she slouches forward a bit)
  • Supports her weight on her legs for at least 10-15 seconds
  • Stands flat-footed
  • Smiles big toothless grins in response to smiles
  • Nurses 10 minutes to a side 6-8 times per day
  • Spits up a few times a day
  • Poops anywhere between twice and five times a day
  • Gets the hiccups one or two times a day
  • Has very thin hair except underneath the nub on the back of her head
  • Rubs off the hair on the back of her nub
  • Follows objects (especially her favorite ducky toy) almost 180 degrees (limited a bit by the torticollis)
  • Pushes off with her legs when laying on her tummy, but ends up just skidding along her face
  • Sleeps in her new (hand-me-down from a friend) papasan swing during the afternoons
  • Still loves sleeping on Mommy or Daddy
  • Is struggling to find a good sleep routine and fights sleep at night
  • Has the most beautiful dark brown eyes that still have a bit of a ring of blue around them
  • Has gorgeous, long eyelashes
  • Holds her toys if you put them in her hand
  • Plays with her tongue almost constantly
  • Has started chewing on her tongue
  • Tongues your shoulder as you hold her
  • Will latch onto a finger, a cheek--anything, really
  • Loves being around people--even the doctor
  • Is starting to reach for toys
  • Is calmed by being outside, feeling the sun and the breeze
  • Sucks on her fists anytime she isn't eating or sleeping
Even though her lack of sleeping can be very frustrating, we are in love with this beautiful little girl and can't wait to see what the future months bring!
