Gianna's two month update

I finally have the time to sit down and write Gianna's two month update

Dear Gianna

You are two month's old already. I can't believe how fast time is flying. It seems like just yesterday we were waiting for your arrival. You have grown so much this past month. Remember how mommy was worried about all the sleeping you did, well you are much more active and alert during the day. You love to smile and you are starting to look around more at your surroundings.

You still love to be held all the time and get quite fussy when we put you down. Especially at night. But that's ok. Mommy and Daddy love cuddling as much as you do.

You are sleeping more at night. You usually go down around 8:30 and sleep until 1 or 2 depending on the night. Then I feed you and you fall back asleep with a little coaxing. You get up around 5 for a mini feeding session and then get up again around 6. Mommy has figured out that when you wake up at 6 you don't really want to eat, you are ready to be picked up and cuddled. Sometimes Mommy gets lucky and you fall back asleep on mommy's chest for another hour or two

You are wearing size 1 diaper's. You can wear some of your newborn clothes but we are mostly in 0-3. And if your daddy dresses you you wear 9 month clothes. But that's ok we will cut him some slack

At your 2 month Dr appt you were 9.9 lbs and 20 inches long. You are in the 40% for weight and 10% for height. You def are a little peanut

You are still exclusively breastfed and hate taking a bottle. In fact you push it out of the way and spit up the milk every time I try to give you one. You are def our stubborn little girl.

You love being held upright so you can see everything around you. You also love being placed in your crib. The mobile sends you into hysterics. You are trying so hard to laugh although right now it sounds like a cross between a cough and a choke. At first it scared me half to death but now it makes me smile.

You are growing up so fast little one. Mommy wishes I could keep you this little forever but that would take all the fun out of watching you grow

Always remember Mommy and Daddy love you so very much. We are so blessed to have you in our life

And for some 2 month pics!
