alrighty... on to my two month baby update! baby girl is doing pretty well and growing so quickly.. can we please slow down! how did my sweet baby go from 5 pounds to 10 pounds! she's eating well, still waking about every three hours to feed, but we've been working on sticking to a sleeping and eating schedule so she can sleep longer throughout the night -- i can't wait for a solid 6 hours of sleep! she also is starting to enjoy a little bit of tummy time and is starting to have better head control. she is able to track objects and faces. she loves the sound of daddy's and my voice -- she loves to hear us talk and sing. she is also starting to smile -- especially when i make funny noises. we love her so much and love seeing how much she changes in such a short amount of time. i want her to stay little forever! haha

hope everyone has a lovely day !!
