Oh Sweet Maddie!
Two months already! We have had SO much fun with you, and it just keeps getting better and better every day!! And Holy Cuteness Batman...you are ADORABLE! At 5 weeks you really started smiling socially, and it just melts our hearts! It doesn't even take much now to get you into a little giggling fit, and it makes us so happy!
You are growing right on track! At your 2 month check-up you measured 22 1/2 inches long and 10.9 pounds. What you didn't like at your check-up was the shots! Poor baby! You were already having a rough day, and then we had to go and make it worse. I felt so bad for you, but afterwards you did get to enjoy some mommy lovin' as I held you and calmed you down. It only took a day and a half and then you were back to your normal smiling self! That's my girl!!
This month you really started noticing toys and it is so cute that you can entertain yourself. Grammy bought you a mat that you lay on and stare up at toys. You LOVE it! And I have to say I love it too because it gives me a chance to brush my teeth in the morning. Thank you Grammy!! :) You have even started noticing that when you flail your arms you can make the hippo start swinging and that makes you laugh...which in turn makes me laugh! I swear, the joy you bring us is endless!!
One of my very favorite things you started doing this month is having conversations with me. Ok, so I don't really know what your saying and vice versa, but it is so stinkin' cute. We literally just stare at each other and "talk." I would so love to get into your little mind to find out what kind of stories you are telling me. I bet they are quite interesting!
I also have to thank you because this month you starting sleeping much longer lengths of time at night. We lay you down around 9:30 or 10 and you just stare at your puppy nightlight until your little eyelids can't take anymore. Then you sleep until around 4 or 5! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! It is so much nicer to get more than 2-3 hours of sleep per stretch. I feel much more human during the day now! :)
You are getting so great at holding your head up! You really show off at tummy time, let me tell ya! I know you are on the fast track to growing up, so I am soaking up ALL the baby time I can get. It makes me sad that this coming month I will be going back to work. I know you will be well taken care of and I love teaching but I hate the fact that my daily time with you will be cut so short! Get ready, mommy's gonna be all over you when I pick you up from Grandpa's Day Care! Talk about attack of the kisses...hold on tight! :)
Well, I guess it's time to move on to month three. Mommy and Daddy are having the time of our lives with you! Thank you for being our sweet baby girl! We LOVE you SO SO much, and thank God every day for your sweet smiling face!!
Love you Maddie Bug!
