9 Weeks/ 2 Months

How is my baby girl 2 months old already???

Amelia is such a big girl already! (sigh) She is sleeping soundly in her crib every night, usually for 5-7 hours straight. (usually...) Naps are going better...I am trying to break her of taking naps in the swing. I have had some success in the pack and play but she wakes up a lot more and has to be soothed back to sleep or just simply won't go back to sleep after waking up so some of her naps are closer to 30 minutes than 2 hours! Next step...naps in the crib. I am certain that part of the reason she is extra cranky in the evenings is the fact that she isn't sleeping enough during the day so she is overtired. On days when she sleeps well during the day our evenings go much smoother!

Amelia had her 2 month check up on 1/12/12. She weighed in at 11 pounds 1 ounce and measured 23 inches long! I cannot believe how much she has grown. She is in the 53rd percentile for weight, the 84th percentile for height (going to be tall like mommy and daddy!) and the 87th percentile for head circumference.

We had another fun outing this week. Our friends The Theisen's had an ugly Christmas sweater party. Amelia enjoyed seeing her friends and meeting new people and she got to wear one of her Christmas outfits again!

Amelia has SERIOUSLY found her hands! Or at least her left hand. This is GREAT news to mommy because I'm hoping this means she will be able to self sooth.
