2 Months Already!!

I can't believe that my little Leila girl is already 2 months! I can't believe how fast the time has gone! I feel like so quickly she has gotten out of that "newborn" look and is starting to get her own unique look.

She has been a little colicky (whatever that is exactly, know one seems to know) the past few weeks. She had been screaming EVERY night from 7-9! It stopped last week when I finally broke out my "Happiest Baby on The Block" and put the 5 S's to work. What a freaking miracle!

She loves to eat and I can't wait to see what she weighs when we go to her checkup on Thursday. I haven't really established a day time routine yet. She is still just feeding on demand which seems to be ALL THE TIME! It makes me a little nervous when it comes to my surgery because I won't be able to nurse her for 48 hrs and she has only had a bottle a handful of times. Have fun with that one Josh! I know she will take it when she gets hungry enough. It's just going to be the initial struggle.

It is so sweet to see her smiling and cooing at us. She really becomes alert when she hears Malakai's voice. Probably because it's about 5 octaves louder than everyone elses. LOL! They play a cute little game of sticking their tongues out at each other. He is starting to acknowledge her existence a little more. At least he has stopped telling her that her mommy is at work :) She does seem to be taking on his sleep patterns though, which is excellent! She is sleeping GREAT! Goes down between 9:30 and 10 and sleeps till 7 or 7:30. I can not complain about that.

As you can see from the picture on the right she has an outrageous hair line. Some say she takes ofter her Papi (my dad).

It's amazing how different she is from Malakai. She is such a cuddler and wants to be held all the time. He NEVER wanted to be held or cuddled, even to this day. I love holding her and smelling her and I try to take in every moment seeing as how it goes by SO fast! She is like a handful of happiness and a heartful of love.

So, here's to you being 2 months Leila Jane! I look forward to seeing you grow and change and become the sweet, precious, girl I know you will.

She looks so much like Malakai now, sweet thing! Is it bad that the first thing I noticed were you Noel pajamas, and it made me feel better because I wear my Santa hat ones YEAR ROUND!!!
