Ansley at 2 months

Having tummy time in her cribSanta Baby on Christmas Eve

Smiling on Christmas Day
At 2 months, sweet Ansley has really come alive! She is 23 3/4 inches and in the 80th %; she weighs 10lbs, 2oz and is in the 30th %; her head is 39 cm and is in the 70th%.

She now smiles all the time--late at night when we shine a flashlight to see if she is asleep, when I wake her in the mornings, and any time in between. She especially likes to smile at men...

She is starting to like tummy time and is lifting her head. She has even rolled over 3 times. She loves her mobile. She is happiest when being held. Being the little sister, she is NOT shy at letting us know when she needs or wants something.

Prior to 2 months, she was eating about 4-5 ounces every 3 hours during the daytime. Now, she must be going through a growth spurt because she is wanting to eat every 2-2.5 hours. Yikes! Her sleeping is starting to get more on a schedule too, now that she is awake more. She wears herself out during playtime.

Poor thing caught my cold, and so we have returned her to our room at night so she can sleep in her swing which elevates her head more.

I am still being sensitive to her tummy troubles, but we are hoping it is more of a sensitivity to milk rather than an allergy.

This little girl captures our hearts more each day, and we love the hard and the easy, the good and not so good, the rewarding and the trying moments with her and our little family of 4.
