2 MONTHS OLD!!

Daphne is now 2 months old! We celebrated by going to get her immunization shots, poor girl. We are so thankful she is doing well and is a healthy baby! She weighed 10 pounds 12.5 ounces (50th percentile), was 21 inches long (40th percentile), and had a head circumference in the 55th percentile. She is a cute little well-proportioned baby!

Meanwhile, we have begun the adventure of establishing a bedtime routine and going to sleep at a decent bedtime. She sleeps well at night, but sometimes "night" starts at 2 am. I'm sure bedtime is one of the more difficult things to tackle, but in the meantime mama prays for energy and a good attitude. However, when Daphne is awake and smiles at me in the middle of the night, I completely forget how late it is! Baby smiles are a tender mercy from above.

We have also made a new friend! Her name is Bumbo, and we didn't like her at first. Now I think we are going to be spending many happy moments with her.

DAPH'S NEWEST HOBBY

Daphne's new favorite hobby: licking things. Blankets, her shirt, hands, anything by her mouth. She is a pro at it!

PRETTY SMILE

The first smile we have caught on camera! Cute girl.


OUR DAPHNE

We are convinced that Daphne is the cutest little girl in the world! She has become much more interactive, and we are so happy that she is ours!! Here are a few new things about her:

~She started smiling March 3rd!
~Daphne laughed for the first time March 8th! So cute.
~Her favorite new position to be held in is on her tummy against your chest
~She holds your arm when you help keep her binky in her mouth
~She has started sucking on her fists
~She hates it when we wash her hair
~She tucks her thumb in when she makes a fist
~She has the cutest big smiles when she is asleep
~She is getting better at sleeping at night
~When she is hungry, she doesn't like being tricked with her binky
~She calms down and falls asleep the best when being sung to
~She loves her vitamin D drops
~She is the best eater! No difficulties there.
~She rarely cries when her diaper is being changed; instead she stares at the Utah State sign by her changing pad. It just happened to be on the wall where we change her, and we think she loves it because of the contrast between the blue and white. It has become her buddy, and she now talks and coos at it. Her first intentional laugh was also directed towards her Aggie sign... so funny and cute!

Also, I took her in to get her bilirubin count checked when she was 5 weeks old, and they weighed her like they do at every appointment. How much did she weigh? A whopping 9 pounds 5.5 ounces! In three weeks, she gained over 2 pounds! She jumped from the 15th percentile for weight at her 2 week appointment to the 50th percentile at 5 weeks! She loves her meal times. Good girl.

We sure do love our Daph!!
