My Dearest Wonderful Gloria:
I can't believe you're already 2 months old. I know they say time flies when you have kids and it has with your sister, but I suppose since we're both working like crazy AND have sissy, these first two months of your life have literally FLOWN by.
I can't stress enough to you how AMAZING you are as a baby. I type that, I tell people that, and I scream it off the roof tops and then when people meet you? They can't BELIEVE how chill you are. You'll lay on your tummy, look around, roll over occasionally, and be content. Then I'll turn you around and you remain ... guess what ... content! ; )
You are such a TALL girl. You're weighing a little over 11 pounds (smaller than your sister was at this age) but you've been in size 3 month clothing for about 3 weeks and you're in size 2 diaper and have been for about 3 weeks as well. The other stuff just wasn't tall enough for you. You're a smiley and cooing machine too. It's so fun to hear you talk to us. You respond so well to someone tickling your nose (especially when your Daddy does it).
We've brought you in the water a few times and your Daddy is convinced (and this is a quote) that you "have a feel for the water." He was so impressed with how you floated on your back and kicked your little legs. It was with purpose.
As for your sleeping habits? Holy moly you're fabulous! You're averaging about 7 to 7.5 hours if I had to guess, but less than 6.5 is a thing of the past! You had some ROUGH nights when we went to Washington D.C. for your Uncle Tyler's wedding. We don't really know why. You wouldn't necessarily fuss, you just didn't want to sleep. I think you knew you weren't in your room because literally the SECOND we got you home, you took a 3 hour nap and then slept 7 hours that night. Since then, you've given us a couple nights where I had to WAKE YOU UP to go to work because you had slept 9.5 hours. Seriously, what 2 month old does that?
Your sister continues to be amazed with you. She's a GREAT helper too! She tells me "Mommy I get sissy's bottle and milk!" "Mommy, I will help with sissy's pacifier!" She has learned the baby lingo and is a great big sister to you already.
You started daycare full time this week and that was a rough transition for Mommy. She has a 50 minute commute to and from work everyday just so you and sissy can get to school. It's frustrating and exhausting I must admit. Hopefully we can figure out a solution for this soon because your Mommy isn't superwoman!
OK my champion baby girl, I think that's enough of a letter for the month. We love you. We really do. You complete our family SO perfectly!!! A perfect match.
