happy two months, evelyn!

dear evy girl,
you are two months old now! it's crazy how fast time flies (yes, i know i've said this and will continue to say this every single month with both your sister and you!).  we love you so very much and i am loving spending my days with you!  
you are the most easy going, laid back baby.  even if this changes down the road and you throw us for a loop, i'll look back on these first two months and count my blessings!  you made the transition from one to two kiddos so much easier than i expected.  

this month you started smiling!!!! you smile HUGE grins and it just melts our hearts!  the best is when you smile at nora and she says, "mommy! she's looking at me! she's smiling at nora!" and she just can't help but touch you and smile right back at ya! 
i swear you rolled over two times when i wasn't looking, too.  i put you on your tummy and went to tend to something with nora and not only 3 seconds later you were on your back.  i have yet to see it for my own eyes though!  

if i go through your "LOVES" and "HATES", you pretty much just love everything.... the swing, bouncer, solly baby wrap (you love when i wrap you up and wear you!), rock n play sleeper, your paci, being held (you are quite the snuggly little babe), and eating. 
you are not a huge fan of getting your diaper changed, getting into the car seat, or being hungry. you also don't like to be left alone... you like to be where the party's at.  but then again, what baby is a fan of these things!? 

you're in size 1 diapers, 0-3 month clothes & pj's.  it's so fun to put you in some of nora's old clothes and look back at when nora wore those outfits.  nora has taken to saying, "that nora's when nora baby!"
you weigh 9 pounds 13 ounces (16th percentile) and are 22.5 inches long (56th percentile).  the doctor is happy with your weight gain so far, so therefore so are we.  

you are sleeping through the night for the most part.  we feed you around 9/9:30 and you sleep 10:00-5/6:00ish.  sometimes earlier and sometimes later.  this is awesome and we're loving every extra minute of sleep we can get.  even if you stop being a rockstar sleeper, i'll take the last few weeks of good sleep.  so thank you :) 

you eat pretty much every 2-3 hours and make it well known if you are hungry!  you are an efficient eater and are pretty good at nursing.  you'll take a bottle from dad, too.  you are still being treated for reflux and some days seem worse than others.  otherwise, you've been healthy!

there are so many wonderful things i could say about you, miss evy girl.  your daddy and i love you so incredibly much.  we never knew it was possible for our hearts to grow even bigger and love another sweet daughter, but they did and we do! you truly are a gift to us.
we love you to the moon and back, baby girl!
mommy & daddy
