Our little 2 month old!

Allison had her 2 month appointment last week and she is doing great! I cannot believe that he is already 2 months old. Where has the time gone?? She grew 3 inches since her last appointment (up to 23 inches!) and, weighing in at 11 pounds and 2 ounces, she gained almost a full 4 pounds! She also had to get her vaccinations which included 3 shots :( She was not too happy with those, but I think I cried more. She is so healthy, though, and that is more than we could ask for.

The past two months have definitely been an adjustment, but she has made it relatively easy on us. Starting around 1 month of age, Allison started sleeping 7 hours straight through the night! She has been a champion eater (and pooper!) and is getting into a very nice schedule. She even took her first plane ride to Ohio to visit my family. She slept from take off to touch down both there are back, so we were very pleased (as were all of the other passengers!).

She has discovered her hands and chomps on them all throughout the day. Another one of her favorite things is her activity mat. The lights and sounds just fascinate her. As silly as it may be, one of my proudest moments so far is when she reached out and snagged the rings on it. Yay Allison!

Stealing the idea from Kristin @ , here are 2 things about our little 2 month old that make her, well, her.

1.) She loves her bathtime! During our visit to Ohio, Allison used her cousin Michael and Nicky's bathtub. We always used the sling in her bathtub at home, but since this one didn't have the sling, we made do. And she LOVED it! Needless to say, when we got home, we got rid of the sling and haven't looked back. She splashes and laughes the entire time. Her head turns as soon as she hears that water running.

2.) Little Miss Allison has a million expressions and sounds to match. She coo's, goo's, and smiles all day long but her newest favorite is squealing. This little lady is bound to be a chatter. She will "talk" to anyone who listens and talks back.

We just love our little peanut and feel so blessed to have her in our lives. Happy 2 months Princess!
