Leah is TWO months old!
Oh, sweet girl. You are more awake, more smiley, and a bit more dramatic than the month before. We love it all (usually), especially those round cheeks becoming more full with each passing day!
I can hardly stand it when that smile starts and your eyes twinkle with happiness!
We were all smiling right along with you when you started to give us some happy expressions. That day, January 5th, was a memorable one. Your brothers gathered around and we all made the silliest noises and faces to get as many smiles from you as we could.
You are most smiley first thing in the morning, and lately it's a bit of a competition to see who can get the biggest smiles from you.
And then you were back to this:
Well, most of the time at least. The exception would be when we're just about anywhere but home. Because that involves your current worst enemy: the car seat.
Hating the car seat and having a very gassy tummy have both contributed to shorter than acceptable naps and a fair amount screaming. The good news is that if you're being held, you're pretty darn happy. So, for the most part I've just come to accept the fact that things on my to do list will get done later, like when you're in kindergarten maybe. Truthfully, I'm grateful that there is a way to console you even if it does inhibit any kind of productivity in my world, and I'm also thankful that I'm the one that you find comfort with. I sure hope it always stays that way.
Your eyes have started lightening up into a beautiful blue, following the trend of your brothers.
It took a little convincing, but you're out of the rock and play for sleeping. Turns out that sleeping on your back isn't so bad after all!
