Happy 2 months, Olive!









Our beauty is still growing and just about to break my back.  :D
I see other babies that are 3-6 months and she is as long as them, just unable to hold her head up.  
I hope she walks earlier than most babies because my back and knees can't take too much more. lol

Age: 2 month

Weight: 12 lbs. 12 oz. (85th percentile)

Height: 23 inches long (85th percentile)
Head circumference: 15 1/2 inches (49th percentile)
Sleeping: I am nursing closer to every 2 hours during the day.
Sleeping at night has been wonderful. ::knocking on wood:: She sleeps anywhere from 5-8 hours straight sometimes.  Thank god because I need it some nights.
Eating habits: Nursing and Expressed milk. I give her about 3 oz. of milk in a bottle at night and that has helped her sleep longer. Sometimes she'll get 2 bottles a day depending on if we need to run errands and I don't feel taking the boob out.  :)
Favorite activity: Eating and being in mama's arms.
Cutest Moment of the Month: Smiles, Laughter and recognizing our voices and faces.

Lifts head almost 45 degrees when lying on stomach
Head bobs forward when held in sitting position
Grasp reflex decreases
Follows dangling objects with eyes
Visually searches for sounds
Makes noises other than crying
Cries become distinctive (wet, hungry, etc.)
Vocalizes to familiar voices
Social smile demonstrated in response to various stimuli
Firsts: Laugh, Smiles and vaccines.
