Yesterday Grace turned 2 months old! It is hard to believe that 2 while months have passed since she was born. She is growing up so fast! We had her 2 month check-up yesterday and the doctor said she was good and healthy. She weighs 11 lbs. 8 oz. and is just a tad over 22 inches tall. She is in the 75th percentile on weight and the 50th in height. She also got her shots and did really well. She slept through it and didn't really cry much at all. She just cried in her sleep a little and as soon as the shots were done she was perfectly quiet again. And she had no side effects from them at all and was such an angel all day long!!
She is learning so much too. The doctor asked if she had developed a social smile yet and, of course, she has. She laughs and coos and has the biggest smile I have ever seen. She is a very happy baby! She has been making little sounds a lot lately. Yesterday she said "Mah." That is half-way to Ma-ma!! She as also been saying "Ah" "Ga" "Ah Ga" "Bah" "Oh" "Uh" and lots more. She rolls over and scoots and can sit upright on the sofa. She LOVES to stand in our laps and just talk and makes the cutest little faces. We can tell she really is trying hard to let us know something. She is also a good sleeper. She has been sleeping through the night quite often lately. She normally will sleep for at least 7 hours and sometimes even 8 or 9! And after she eats she goes right back down in her crib for about 2 - 4 more hours. Oh, and she can pick things up! If I lay her pacifier on the blanket that covers her legs in her carseat she will pick it up and try to put it in her mouth if she wants it. It is so cute to see her holding her paci in her hand and waving it around!!
I took her shopping yesterday and bought her some new bath toys and shoes (she's a girl, she has to love shoes!). Actually, she wouldn't have got them except for she was being such the little angel she is and was sound asleep in her stroller while I was picking up a few things at the BX and I didn't want to disturb her so I just walked through the store a bit longer. She actually got more than that too.. we got her a toothbrush (she needs to get used to it before she gets teeth so we will let her chew on it a bit until then), some new pacifiers that have cases, and some nose drops for her congested little nose (they helped a lot!).
I think I might try to take some pictures today or tomorrow to post. Our internet has been off and on a lot lately (mostly off). They are coming to look at it tomorrow so hopefully they can figure it out but most likely I won't be able to post anything until after they get it fixed because it cuts out a lot.
