2 months

Avery is 2 months old. I can't believe how time is flying by and how much she is changing every day. Her personality is really starting to blossom. She has started to smile a lot, though it is hard to catch it on camera! She even let out her first laugh. She loves her play gym now. She will lay there and "talk" to her friends. Her favorites are Mr. Giraffe and Mr. Monkey. Occasionally she talks to her old friend Purple Elephant! Needless to say she is beginning to really interact with her environment.

She is still eating every 3 hours from 7:30a-10:30p with a night feed around 4:00a. Occasionally she will go all night. She's now on Enfamil Gentlease and that has helped her so much!

Avery has found her hands now as well. We call them "happy hands." She is constantly moving them and messing with them. She is very ticklish, also.

We are still swaddling her for sleep. Between her "happy hands" and startle reflex she just can't sleep well without her swaddle. I hope she doesn't go to prom in a swaddle! She is doing great with her sleep. She usually takes 2 long naps of 1.5-2 hours and 2 shorter naps of 1-1.5 hours a day. She loves her sleep but if she takes a long nap then the next nap tends to be shorter. But, she'll also have more wake time after her long naps. She goes to sleep on her own with very little fussing and rare crying now. What a blessing!

We are enjoying getting to know her and just watching her grow and learn! I can't wait for all the future holds! I love this little girl more than words can express!!
