Dear Addilyn Jane,
It's hard to believe that you are already two months old. It's crazy to me how much you have changed this last month. You no longer seem like this little baby. You are SO long, which your daddy and I think is so funny since we are both pretty short. You haven't fit in newborn clothes for a few weeks and even some of your 0-3 month clothes don't fit. It makes me a little sad that you are growing so fast, but I also love it too.
You've become so alert and we love to play with you. It's been so much fun finding out what kind of things make you smile, which you do a lot! You love when we say "boo" to you or make noises with our lips. You just started loving looking at books and we can sit on the floor or bed and read for 15 minutes. You favorite book is "Peek a Who" and you laugh every time we read it. You also LOVE your stuffed animal pig, which you "talk" to for at least five minutes every morning.
The mornings are your favorite time of day, as you are so happy! We get the most smiles out of you right after you eat and we sit on the living room floor and talk and play. Bedtime has become another favorite part as we just started more of a bedtime routine. We sit in bed and read a few books and then pray together. Most of the time you are so content and happy.
You've been quite inconsistent with your sleeping during the day and at night this month. I thought I had it somewhat figured out and then you changed your mind! I'm guessing you will keep doing that for awhile! You have started sleeping longer stretches at night and while it's been inconsistent, those few longer nights of sleep have been great!
You got your first cold this month and it was sad to hear you coughing and sneezing. Thankfully it didn't last long. You also got your shots this month which I hated! You handled it like a champ and only cried for a few minutes.
We are pretty busy and find something to do most days. You've had a few play dates and made some new friends. We're excited for lots more play dates together!
I look at your one month picture and can't even believe how much bigger and different you look. Sometimes I get sad at how fast this time is going. I don't want you to grow up too fast, but I'm also excited for each new phase that you're going to go through.
