Month two is always a big one. This is where to begin to become more alert, awake for longer periods of time and start to throw your arms and legs around. You haven’t started coo-ing and smiling yet but you do throw little grins our way on occasion.
Towards the end of this month I went back to work. I was really hard for me – it still is – but you are doing wonderful. You stay at home with your brother and your Aunt Amanda and spend your days eating and sleeping. So far you haven’t given her too hard of a time. 🙂 I come home on my lunch breaks to nurse and get a few minutes of snuggling in.
Right before I went back to work, your dad and I took you and Brady to the aquarium for the day and stayed the night at a hotel. You slept through all of it, even navigating through the tight aquarium in your stroller where I may or may not have bumped you into a fish tank or two. We sat on the sidelines while dad and brother swam and I snapped this pic:
I show this to you because it is what I’m calling your two month picture. That morning while we were waiting in line for tickets at the aquarium my camera fell out out of my purse and the lens broke. I didn’t buy a new one until long after you turned two months old. I hope to do a much better of these in the future.
You celebrated your first holiday this month, Independence Day. Of course, you slept through it all. You wore a red, white and blue onesie that said I Heart BBQ.
You are still very much a tiny, dainty, little girl. You haven’t even made it out of your newborn clothes yet or diapers yet. You are that small.
We are so blessed to have you, all of us are.
