Two Months

Our darling Lily turned two months old on Tuesday. I went into her room to wake her up and she gave me the biggest smile! She is such a happy baby. We dropped Daddy off at work and went to the doctor's office. We got in pretty quickly. The nurse checked her weight, length and head...she weighs 11 pounds 5 ounces and is 23 inches long. Then the doctor came in to check her out, said she looked great (I know!) and we chatted a bit. Then the dreaded moment arrived...the nurse came back to give Lily her immunizations - 6 of them to be exact! 4 were shots and 2 were oral. She made a funny face with the oral ones...wonder what she thought (maybe, "hey, that's not Mommy's milk!!"). Then the nurses held her legs and I held her arms while they administered the shots - 2 in each leg. She was such a content little girl, just going with the flow, and then she got a surprised look on her face and started crying. Poor baby! I cuddled her and fed her and then she was ok. She's so brave!

She is such a joy in our lives. She "talks" to us a lot and gives us big smiles :) She has decided bath time is more crying in the bath! She sleeps through the night and stays awake for most of the day, except Sundays when she sleeps almost all day - she definitely understands "day of rest"!! She likes listening to music and sitting in her bouncy chair. She loves hearing Daddy's voice when he comes home from work. She has outgrown her newborn clothes but doesn't really fit into 0-3 month clothes yet (almost though). She makes funny faces and makes us laugh. We love you, Lily!!!
