Two months old...

Baby girl is two months old today. I can't believe I just typed that. These past two months have gone by so fast. Miss Tallia is getting so big. She had her two month checkup and weighed 12 lbs and 11 oz. We all had our guesses to her weight, but Libby was the closest guessing 13 pounds. Tallia was 24 inches long.

She's wearing 3-6 months clothes and her eyes are bluer everyday. We thought they were going to be hazel like Daddy's. That's what they looked like when she was born, but they have slowly gotten lighter over the past two months. I think we have another blue eyed baby in the house.

She's getting these adorable little rolls on her arms and legs. I just love all her squish!! She's been smiling lately and telling us all kinds of secrets in her little baby language. She's most talkative first thing in the morning. We all love to hang out in Mom and Dad's room to snuggle and talk with her. It's become my favorite part of the day. She also makes the funniest faces. She keeps us all laughing! :)

She's doing great with her sleeping. Most days we get two naps in, plus some dozing time in the evening when brother and sister want to snuggle her. She gets up about two times at night, but has a really great stretch of about 4 1/2 hours when I first put her down. She's been going to bed around 9:30 pm. We're slowly getting her closer to 8, which is when the older kids go to bed. I'm guessing she'll need a bit more time before that happens.

She still sleeps in her bassinet for naps and when she first goes down at night. I usually bring her into our bed when she gets up to eat. It helps mom get more sleep and I'm not gonna lie, I like having my baby close by.

Nursing is still going great. Baby girl likes her milk and still nurses on demand. The past two months have been amazingly hectic, sometimes overwhelming, and absolutely beautiful. I love this little chickadee to the moon and back.

Oh and did I mention she has found her hands? So stinkin cute...except when she bites down too hard and cries. Then it's sad. Poor thing. :(

There may be dishes in the sink, carpet that desperately needs vacuuming, and piles of laundry to be folded, but we're hanging in there. Life with a new baby is always a bit of a challenge and I've had to let a few things go, as we figure out our new normal, but I wouldn't trade it for the world.

This sweet little squish is a true gift, one we are thankful for every day.
