This Tuesday Ally turned 2 mos old. I thought I'd briefly document what she is doing these days.
She loves to smile, and a few times she has even gotten so caught up in the smiling and trying to talk, that a happy little squeal slipped out.
She eats on avg 4 oz of breastmilk every 3-4 hours. Sometimes I get lucky at night and she goes up to 5 or 6 hours without eating, but that is rare.
She can hold her head up pretty well. We have put her in the Bumbo seat a few times, but she doesn't like it much. What she LOVES is her swing. She would happily spend all day in her swing, sleeping or looking at her reflection in the mobile above her.
She doesn't like tummy time much yet, I suppose because she feels trapped and there isn't much to do when you can barely hold your head up, and only for short periods. Most of the time she ends up with her face in a wet puddle of spit up. I can't say as I blame her on that one.
Her brothers love her, especially Sam. I am really surprised at that because I thought he'd be jealous. He is very sweet to her. When she cries, he rushes to comfort her. Today she got her 2 month shots and he raced to her side to tell it was okay the minute she started crying. He is also a very good helper when it comes to Ally. He'll get bottles out of hte fridge for me, grab her pacifier, put diapers in teh trash, etc. He is a gret big brother. Jackson is good, too, but most of the time he is pretty oblivious that we even have a new baby in the house. He is very caught up in his big-boy activities and preschool friends these days.
