Hattie: 2 months!

Wow...I can't believe two months have already passed since she was born.  In some ways it feels like she is still so new, and in other ways it feels like she's always been with us.  Either way, I can't imagine life without her. 

We haven't had her 2 month appointment yet, so her stats aren't exact, but using the baby scale she's just over 12 pounds, just graduated to size 2 diapers and is quickly outgrowing her 0-3 month clothes.  But that round face double chin speak for themselves!
She eats about 6-7 times a day, and since I'm nursing I'm not sure how many ounces she eats at each feeding, but when I've pumped she's been eating around 4 1/2.

Two nights ago, she slept through the night!  9:30 pm-6:30 am!!!  Last night was 10-5, soooo close! Either way, I can't complain, she is doing a great job--eating, sleeping, pooping and growing.

 She's spending more of her time awake these days.  After she eats she needs a burp (much less spitting up if she gets a good one), though you really have to work for it.  After a burp she loves to lay "under the deep blue sea" (the activity play mat) and especially likes to stare at herself in the mirror-what a girl:).
 She also just started smiling, and in response to someone smiling and talking to her.  It melts your heart.  Here is a little half smile/ make your day--it made mine!
